The Perfect Blend by Trish Perry

To elope with Rick Manfred seemed like such a good idea that Steph Vandergrift went against all the wishes of her parents and friends and left her home behind to marry him. However, on the day of her wedding, Steph finds herself in Middleburg without a groom. Rick's sudden disappearance is devastating, but when Milly Jewell brings Steph into her tea shop, Steph finds the hope to survive for the day. The last thing Steph wants to do is return to her parents and she decides to spend a few days at the Fox and Hounds Inn. Through a series of events, she meets Christie, Liz and the handsome Kendall James. Steph knows she's not ready for another relationship, but she can not deny that Kendall James is a great friend. When Rick shows back up in Steph's life, she is forced to choose between the two men. But is her choice really about who she loves or is it about her need for acceptance?

The Perfect Blend far exceeded the expectations that I had for it. It had me laughing out loud several times and I finished the book within 24 hours of starting it. The characters are extremely enjoyable though I am not sure there is any man out there as perfect as Kendall James. I am usually a stickler for authenticity in books and I had to question whether it would really be possible to fall in love with a person so quickly after being jilted by another. However, I am more than happy to suspend this question in lieu of enjoying the story for what it is: fiction. If you are looking for a light, humorous, sweet romance, this book is for you!
