The Perfect Blend
Title: THE PERFECT BLEND
Author: Trish Perry
Publisher: Harvest House Books
Steph Vandergrift has burned all her bridges behind her. She abruptly left her job, her friends, her parents, her apartment and everything to elope with attorney Rick Manfred, a man her friends and parents didn’t approve of. Steph never imagined that Rick would stand her up.
Now, Steph is in an unfamiliar town, with no job and no home. Rick was kind enough to pay for a few days at a local hotel, so Steph decides to take full advantage of that.
When Milly offers Steph a temporary job at her tea shop, Steph accepts, and also begins a wonderful friendship with Milly and some of her friends. Steph also meets Kendall James, who seems to be interested in dating her. But Steph doesn’t want to date on the rebound, and by the time she thinks she interested her runaway fiancé had returned. Does God intend for Steph to be with Rick? Or does he have something else in mind?
THE PERFECT BLEND is a fun romantic story with several laugh out loud moments. I thoroughly loved this book, and couldn’t wait to see what happened next. It isn’t a really fast read, it took me several days to read through it (I can read some books through in a day) but that didn’t take away from the books goodness.
Steph is a realistic heroine, brave when her world was falling apart, though she didn’t see it that way. And Kendall is an absolute dream. I loved the way he thought on his feet and his quick comebacks. If you are looking for a wonderful romance, then pick up Trish Perry’s THE PERFECT BLEND. Some yummy sounding recipes are included at the end of the book. $9.99. 246 pages.
