About the Book
After fulfilling a pledge to a dying friend, Zacharias Hamilton is finally free. No family entanglements. No disappointing those around him. Just the quiet bachelor existence he’s always craved. Until fate snatches his freedom away when the baker of his favorite breakfast bun is railroaded by the city council. Despite not wanting to get involved, he can’t turn a blind eye to her predicament . . . or her adorable dimples.
Abigail Kemp needs a man’s name on her bakery’s deed. A marriage of convenience seems the best solution . . . if it involves a man she can control. That person definitely isn’t the stoic lumberman who oozes silent confidence whenever he enters her shop. Control Zacharias Hamilton? She can’t even control her pulse when she’s around him.
When vows are spoken, Abigail’s troubles should be over. Yet threats to the bakery worsen, and darker dangers hound her sister. Can she put ever more trust in Zach without losing her dreams of independence?

In My Opinion
Y’all, I loved Zach Hamilton! Despite his insistence he wants his freedom and doesn’t want to be tied down by obligation, he’s a protector at heart. A fact which is proven over and over with his interactions with both his new wife and his new sister-in-law. He’s also an adorably clueless male when it comes to interaction with the fairer sex (although he is one hundred percent male when it comes to marital expectations).
The interactions between Abby and Zach alternate between awkward, tense, and adorable before and after they become husband and wife. Abby might be all goodness and kind-hearted but she’s also fierce about protecting what’s hers. And the bakery, her sister, and even Zach are hers.
The theme of forgiveness is examined from a few different angles—from letting go and letting God to forgiving everyone but yourself and on to the deep-rooted bitterness that occurs when forgiveness is refused to be given.
With an extra dash of humor and a full helping of heart, Karen Witemeyer delivers a story of family, faith, and finding your happily-ever-after when you aren’t even seeking it. More Than Words Can Say is one historical romance you won’t want to miss.
