LEFT AT THE ALTAR (A Match Made in Texas #1)

LEFT AT THE ALTAR                                    MARGARET BROWNLEY

Welcome to Two-Time Texas: 
Where tempers burn hot
Love runs deep
And a single marriage can unite a feuding town
...or tear it apart for good 
In the wild and untamed West, time is set by the local jeweler...but Two-Time Texas has two: two feuding jewelers and two wildly conflicting time zones. Meg Lockwood's marriage was supposed to unite the families and finally bring peace. But when she's left at the altar by her no-good fiance, Meg's dreams of dragging her quarrelsome neighbors into a ceasefire are dashed. 
No wedding bells? No one-time town. 
Hired to defend the groom against a breach of promise lawsuit, Grant Garrison quickly realizes that the only thing worse than small-town trouble is falling for the jilted bride. But there's something about Meg's sweet smile and determined grit that draws him in...even as the whole crazy town seems set on keeping them apart. 
Who knew being Left at the Altar could be such sweet, clean, madcap fun?

PAT'S REVIEW

This book opens up in a small Texas town that has a feud between to jewelers and the standard of time. Now hoping to put an end to this with a wedding the bride is tired of waiting for the groom to show up goes looking for him. She finds him and he tells her he can’t go through with it and it is not her fault but his, and then does the manly thing and leaves town so she can be the one to tell everyone that the wedding is off. This of course does not end the feud only enhances it. Her father sues on breach of contract and the man who witnessed what went on between the two of them Grant new to town takes her case really to get to know Meg, after finding out that his sister had passed away before he arrived during child birth. There is a lot going for a story sent in the 1880’s and the author does a good job with having characters from the town give their opinion asked or not. You also feel for Meg because she is torn not wanting to sue Tom because they grew up together and though they are not together she still cares about him, but her father is about the way it looks and for the time period I understand that as well. A good story. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 3 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
