I’m so happy to be reviewing Maggie Moves On, because there’s so much about this book that I want to discuss and talk about! This book follows Maggie who has a YouTube channel where she flips houses and records the process. When she takes on her biggest project yet in Kinship, Idaho, the landscaping contractor she hires, Silas, is determined to get her to finally set down some roots.

This book is such a fun and happy book. There’s a lot going on in terms of plot, and I think that helped to balance the slightly insta-lovey romance that occurred. When I first started this book and saw Silas declare that he was going to marry Maggie from their very first meeting, I was a bit hesitant about the romance. But while I’m still not the biggest fan of how Silas approached it in the beginning, the more I read, the more I began to root for this couple to not only get together, but to figure out some way for them to both be happy while staying together. Silas is so warm and friendly and kind and will do anything for those he loves. Once he’s decided that Maggie is the one for him, he does his utmost to show her why he’d be such a great partner. His actions were the things that convinced me in the end that he really was perfect for Maggie.

Silas the entire book

Maggie, however, is dealing with a lot, and the last thing she needs is a romantic relationship with Silas to add as a complication. She’s focused on renovating an abandoned mansion, growing her YouTube channel, all while dealing with her complicated past, and her uncertain future. And things only get more complicated as a mystery is uncovered and she starts developing feelings for Silas.

I really enjoyed how everything about this book unfolded. There were a lot of plot points thrown in that kept matters interesting, but weren’t too overwhelming. I quite enjoyed how things kept taking unexpected turns and how all that ever did was help Maggie learn to love the place she was in more and more.

I’m not going to ramble on too much longer, because I think you can already tell how much I enjoyed myself while reading. There were unconventional family dynamics that I enjoyed, a hint of a mystery running throughout, and of course a blossoming romance taking center stage. This romance had a lot going on, and while that may not work for everyone, it ended up working very well for me and I’d definitely recommend it if this review made you interested.


Although at the beginning I didn’t anticipate it, this book ended up being a 4 star read for me. There was so much I enjoyed and seeing Silas and Maggie’s relationship evolve and grow was definitely one of the highlights!

What book did you enjoy more and more as you read? Do you plan on reading this book?
