About the book:
Charlotte Rose Hill, who loves serving up country delicacies and uniquely blended teas, discovers that while she’s been faithfully caring for her tearoom customers, she’d also been quietly turning into an old maid. Charlotte did fall in love with a young man, Sam Wilder, when she was 18, but his family forced her to walk away from their relationship. Now, more than a decade later, Charlotte finds that she still has feelings for her first love. Initially thrilled to learn that Sam has come home to Middlebury, Texas, Charlotte is then devastated to learn that he’s brought someone with him: his fiancée. But all is not lost when one of the loveable but meddlesome townsfolk decides to get involved. Will the next marriage in Middlebury be for Sam and Charlotte?
Although A Marriage in Middlebury deals with some deep issues like racism and grief, secrets of the heart and running from one’s past, there’s enough humor and busy-body match-making going on that there’s not one moment of gloom and doom. Instead, you feel hope. You know there’s a better day coming. For everyone! If you’re looking for a change of pace, this book is for you.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair review.
