A Marriage in Middlebury

(Abingdon Press)
ISBN: 978-1426733871
November 2013/304 pages/$14.99

One decision changed both their lives . . . but will love win in the end?

Charlotte Rose Hill enjoys a comfortable life serving up country delicacies, uniquely blended teas, and matchmaking advice for her quirky, devoted customers. The only thing lacking is someone to share it with. At eighteen she denied Sam Wilder’s marriage proposal after his family convinced her to walk away from their relationship. They both moved on . . . or so she thought.

When Sam walks back into her life more than a decade later, Charlotte is surprised that her heart still quickens. But is it because of his presence? Or because of the presence of Sam’s new fiancĂ©e? A second chance at love doesn’t happen often, but their past may keep them apart. Is it too late for Sam and Charlotte?

MY THOUGHTS

Anita Higman has written another delightful book. I loved visiting Middlebury and wish it were an actual town that I could visit, especially Charlotte's tea room. What a charming place to spend a morning with a friend! (I was particularly thrilled to discover that the tearoom just outside of Houston that gave Higman the idea for the setting is one that I have actually visited, and it is indeed lovely.) Middlebury is full of characters with a variety of personalities and a few eccentrics, just like most places! Charlotte's sweet personality and desire to show God's love and kindness to everyone she encounters is a beautiful reminder of how we should all live. While I loved the sweet romance in this book, there is so much more to this story than that. A Marriage in Middlebury is a must-read!

Hello!

A friend of mine just published her second book and I am helping to put a book blog tour together for her. This is book two in a three book series but can stand alone. Here's the book blub:

The Scent of Fear by Susan J. Reinhardt

After three years of tenuous peace, John and Ellie Zimmerman are shocked when two old friends show up in disguise. Their world is once again sent into turmoil.

Jim Kenneman, Director of National Security, masterminded the break up of a group persecuting Christians in the Lancaster Tourist Zone. Now, they're gunning for him. At first, he relies on his negotiating skills, but his best operative convinces him that won't work.

Monty, a topnotch operative, worked on the Bird-in-Hand assignment and helped bring down the New Patriots. A recurring dream prompts him to rescue his boss from possible murder. The agency might not be sending him on assignment, but he knows God is directing his path - one that could wreck his career, family, and cost him his life.

Dr. Abby Weaver strives to save infants and toddlers in Holmes County, Ohio. When she meets two strangers, she can't get the tall, handsome one out of her mind. Will their paths intersect again or will dangerous times keep them apart?

This book would be labeled under Amish Futuristic Suspense. If you would like to be a part of the blog tour, I would be happy to forward a PDF copy of the book to you and then set up a schedule of when everyone would post their reviews. I am hoping to get the blog tour together in December and there will also be a $25 Amazon GC and book giveaway involved also. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks for your consideration!
