I love reading books about shop owners, whether be a bakery, vintage thrift store, or in this case, a market. Magnolia Market by Judy Christie did not disappoint.
While the beginning chapters were a bit too secretive for my liking, only delving into the details later, the rest of the book was quite enjoyable. It was a slow read, meaning I was able to put it down throughout the weekend and pick up during some quiet time.
The premise of the book is that Avery's life is falling apart when she helps to take control of a mom and pop market that is as well. I enjoyed all the little details of the market. There is a religious slant to this book but in a good way, here and there but not so in your face or fake like a lot of Christian fiction can be. I wouldn't consider it a Christian book though, as it is very mellow and light.
It was a nice cozy read for a chilly weekend!
