Book Info and review
About the book: 

Author: Anita Higman
Publisher: Abingdon Press
November 2013
ISBN: 978-1426733871
Genre: Contemporary romance

Charlotte Rose Hill has been serving up country delicacies, uniquely blended teas, and matchmaking advice for her quirky but beloved customers for more than 10 years. But for her, marriage seems like an elusive butterfly, always out of reach.

At 18, Charlotte fell in love with a young man, Sam Wilder, but his family convinced her to walk away from their relationship. She did, and then became engaged to another man, who later died before they were married. 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 devastated to learn that he’s brought someone with him: his fiancée. But all is not lost when the townsfolk decide to get involved. Will Charlotte and Sam find their way back to each other?

My thoughts: 

A MARRIAGE IN MIDDLEBURY is a great story. Kind of slow starting, it never does pick up the pace. But it is a sleepy small town comfortable sort of book, perfect to pick up when you are totally stressed and need a quiet sort of book to bring the blood pressure down. It works like a charm.

I loved Sam’s quiet, sure, steadfast personality, but was a bit sad that he was prepared to ruin lives by being so honorable. Which isn’t a bad thing, it just sounds that way. I did NOT like his fiancée. She was way needy. I loved the way it played out in the romance department though, and all the characters did some growing up. Multiple romances (at least three, but I might have lost count) are included in this book, with more points of view than the average romance. Well done. Recommended. $14.99. 5 stars. 304 pages.

Great review Laura! I see you and Mary both gave this book a 5 star. (Even though the pace was slow) I am looking forward to reading it!
