Are you ready to see your fixer upper?
These famous words are now synonymous with the dynamic husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTVs Fixer Upper. As this question fills the airwaves with anticipation, their legions of fans continue to multiply and ask a different series of questions, likeWho are these people? Whats the secret to their success? And is Chip actually that funny in real life? By renovating homes in Waco, Texas, and changing lives in such a winsome and engaging way, Chip and Joanna have become more than just the stars of Fixer Upper, they have become Americas new best friends.
The Magnolia Story is the first book from Chip and Joanna, offering their fans a detailed look at their life together. From the very first renovation project they ever tackled together, to the project that nearly cost them everything; from the childhood memories that shaped them, to the twists and turns that led them to the life they share on the farm today.
They both attended Baylor University in Waco. However, their paths did not cross until Chip checked his car into the local Firestone tire shop where Joanna worked behind the counter. Even back then Chip was a serial entrepreneur who, among other things, ran a lawn care company, sold fireworks, and flipped houses. Soon they were married and living in their first fixer upper. Four children and countless renovations later, Joanna garners the attention of a television producer who notices her work on a blog one day.
In The Magnolia Story fans will finally get to join the Gaines behind the scenes and discover:
The time Chip ran to the grocery store and forgot to take their new, sleeping baby
Joannas agonizing decision to close her dream business to focus on raising their children
When Chip buys a houseboat, sight-unseen, and it turns out to be a leaky wreck
Joannas breakthrough moment of discovering the secret to creating a beautiful home
Harrowing stories of the financial ups and downs as an entrepreneurial couple
Memories and photos from Chip and Jos wedding
The significance of the word magnolia and why it permeates everything they do
The way the couple pays the popularity of Fixer Upper forward, sharing the success with others, and bolstering the city of Waco along the way
And yet there is still one lingering question for fans of the show: Is Chip really that funny? Oh yeah, says Joanna. He was, and still is, my first fixer upper.

This confirms that the couple we see on screen is the same as reality. This is a straightforward book to read. You feel like you want to be friends with them and be involved with their lives and family.
Reading through this feels like curling up with a snuggling, cosy blanket and a good hot chocolate. It’s well written in a conversational tone, making it like being told a story by friends. This is sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but consistently remarkable, genuine and inspiring.
It’s conversational style is very easy to take in. Yet the content is a real page-turner.
You get the same feel-good fuzzies as watching their television show.
Well worth the money, because I will certainly be reading this one, over and over again.
