A Slice of Heaven by Sherryl Woods (Sweet Magnolias book 2)

Dana Sue runs the best restaurant in Serenity, but still can't get her too skinny daughter, Annie, to eat. When Annie lands in hospital, Dana Sue must turn to the man she loves to hate: Ron, the husband who took her heart with him when she threw him out. Ron is still Annie's white knight, even if he's decidedly more tarnished in Dana Sue's eyes. But sometimes life picks strange ways to mend fences, and Ron still looks good enough to eat, and maybe, just maybe, to forgive...

Once, Ron made the mistake of letting Dana Sue go without a proper fight. But he has always loved her and now she is about to get another taste of sweet devotion from a man hungry for that slice of heaven he found with her.

This is book 2 in the Sweet magnolias series. It was really good, and again I could picture the characters so clearly, but again as their tv show actors. Not a bad thing though. This book is based on Dana Sue, and her relationship with daughter Annie and ex husband Ronnie. I love Ronnie in the show, and I was excited to read their story, especially as this book is so different to the show, the storyline doesn’t even happen. Annie has Anorexia, and ends up in hospital with a cardiac arrest due to her not eating, It was a really good storyline, and one that was dealt with very well by the author. 

Also alongside that is the side story of Dana Sue and her diabetes which keeps popping up from time to time. I have diabetes so it was good to read a character with the same issues (like wanting cake when you shouldn’t have it).

I’m definitely going to keep on with the series, next up for Serenity is Ms Helen’s story!
