book review: "a marriage in middlebury" by anita higman

"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 fiancee?

A second chance at love doesn't happen often, but their past may keep them apart. Is it too late for Sam and Charlotte?"

I always like books set in a small town. I love how quaint the town is - I secretly want to live in such a place someday :) It didn't take me long to get pulled into the story, wondering if Charlotte and Sam would have a second chance to be together. I thought all of the characters to be charming - especially quirky Cricket. My heart broke over Obie and his story. And I really liked the final scene being Sam and Charlotte on the bridge - the same place where he proposed ten years before. I finished the book with a smile - my indicator of a good book! Overall, a fun, easy read. 

I received a copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity for my honest review.
