About the Book
What happens when the matchmaker finds a match for herself?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?(Goodreads)
Anita Higman is a great author, I enjoy how she writes in a very visual way. She makes the reader feel like they are there. This book started off good, I love that Charlotte makes her own tea for her tea room. The community of Middlebury is fun, I liked this setting. The only thing about this story is it didn't completely capture my attention. It dragged on for me in the middle, the ending is rather predictable, so it took a lot for me to finish the book. Perhaps this book is just a tad too wordy but the meaning behind the main characters story is great. If you are in the mood for a slower easy going tea read you will like this.
