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?
I enjoyed reading this cute Christian romance book. I liked the tea aspect since I am a hot tea drinker and lover of baked goods. I had a tea party for my 15th birthday. Charlotte and Sam were high school sweethearts. When Sam proposed Charlotte turns him down. He leaves town and she stays and creates a life for herself. Many years later he comes back with his fiancee. And the sparks fly again. This is a Christian fiction book and everything is clean and sweet. The plot and characters are well developed and interesting. Recommended.
