The White Glove War by Katie Crouch

The White Glove War (Magnolia League, #2)Every society has its secrets.
The members of Savannah's Magnolia League have it all: money, beauty, power, and love. Some may call them lucky, but we know better. Spells, potions, and conjures are a girl's best friends, and thanks to the Buzzards -- a legendary hoodoo family -- the Magnolias never run out of friends.
Golden girl Hayes Anderson would never dream of leaving the League or Savannah, where there's no problem that can't be fixed with a cup of Swamp Brew tea -- served in a bone china cup, of course -- and no boy who can't be won over with a Conjure Up a New Love spell.
But when danger lurks and family secrets are unearthed, Hayes discovers that her life may not be charmed after all.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, The Magnolia League. Because of this, I had high hopes for The White Glove War. Though my hopes weren’t met, I still liked The White Glove War. However, I do feel like The White Glove War suffered from 2nd in a series syndrome. I don’t think it lived up to The Magnolia League.

The main reason I liked The White Glove War was because it allowed readers to learn more and delve deeper into the world of The Magnolia League. We learn new things about the society and its inter-workings. This book is written through dual perspective, which felt kind of weird while reading it. Though dual narrative helped tell the story well, I sometimes found myself wanting to skip some of the chapters.

While I didn’t dislike The White Glove War, I definitely won’t be rereading it anytime soon. If you’re interested in this series, I recommend reading The Magnolia League. However, I wouldn’t make you read The White Glove War.
