What a great story

I love watching Fixer Upper. It just seems so authentic and genuine. Well I loved this book for the same reasons. Chip and Jo are loveable and theirs is a great story. I'm truly impressed by their values, work ethics, faith and their desire to help others enjoy life, like they do. People like them make the world a better place. I thank them for sharing their story and letting us into their lives. ( )

Fascinating story ( )

Absolutely fantastic book....

However, a qualifier is needed: If you don't like the show Fixer Upper or the hosts, you'll hate the book. This book is their story and it is hilarious. I'm unsure how much is exaggerated or embellished, but as-is, it's a fantastic story. They do a great job emphasizing how "normal" they are and blessed with an amazing opportunity.

In summary, if you like Fixer Upper, you'll love this book. ( )

Fixer Upper has been one of my favorite shows on HGTV for as long as I can remember. Chip and Joanna Gaines are absolutely adorable on screen and after reading The Magnolia Story I am even more in love! Theirs is really a sweet and simple story of love, family, and trusting God every step of the way.

Reading how Chip and Jo became the Chip and Jo we all have grown to know and love is such a joy. Both coming from humble beginnings and being total opposites gives their tale such character, and I loved how the story is told from both Chip and Joanna's unique points of view.

Waco, Texas is a place I've dreamed of living for years, and after reading The Magnolia Story I wonder if one day I will have a Magnolia home of my own!

If you're a fan of Fixer Upper, and even if you're not, this is a must read. The slow paced, laid back vibe is so relaxing, and it has such a clean and pure feel, which matches perfectly with this beautiful couple and the legacy they are creating not only for their family but their beautiful Texas town as well.

I wish Chip and Joanna all the success in the world, and thank you both for sharing your journey with us. ( )
