About the Book
They can’t let this wedding happen
But Matrimony Valley has only happy endings
Baker Yvonne Niles has nothing in common with cowboy Chaz Walker—except the upcoming marriage of her aunt to his stepdad. Convinced the two aren’t right for each other, Chaz and Yvonne are determined to halt the wedding. But between the cake and family drama, they’re discovering an undeniable attraction. Can an unlikely match ever become a recipe for happiness?
In My Opinion
Allie Pleiter returns to the Smoky Mountain wedding town of Matrimony Valley. Yvonne’s favorite aunt is getting married. And the son of the groom wants to break up the wedding.
Yvonne and Chaz have a rocky start but soon grow to see the positive traits in the other. And then there’s that chemistry brewing just under the surface.
There is a lot of family tension in the Walker clan that’s built with a bombshell of an announcement in the second chapter. The senior Walker could have stopped a lot of pain (for himself as well as his sons) by explaining his reasoning up front instead of giving vague and broad platitudes.
I enjoyed the family dynamics of the Walker men but would have liked a more details about the relationship Yvonne had with her sisters and mother…and why did it never come up while Chaz struggled with his family issues.
This book is a great bridge from the Matrimony Valley setting to the Wander Canyon one in Colorado (and future books). It’s a story about finding your place even when you feel as though you’re always considered second best.
