About the Book:

Steph Vandergrift left everything to elope with Middleburg attorney Rick Manfred, who then stood her up at the altar. Too embarrassed to return home, Steph hopes to earn enough to get by until she can decide what to do next. Tea Shop owner Milly Jewel hires her and appreciates the extra help at the tea shop.

Also appreciative of Steph is Kendall James, one of the kindest, most eligible bachelors in the area. But by the time Steph feels able to consider dating again, her run-away fiance returns and tries to win her back. Steph is wary, but she and Rick always blended so well.

Christie Burnham, the frank-talking equestrian from whom Steph rents a room, and her frillier sister Liz become fast friends and confidantes to Steph. Between the two sisters, there isn't much any man is going to pull over on Middleburg's newest bachelorette and tea shop employee.

My Review:

Are you looking for a book to pick you up during the winter doldrums? If so, The Perfect Blend is THAT book! I absolutely love Trish Perry’s characters. They are always so relatable. I can always find a piece of myself in her female characters. That was no exception this time.

Steph Vandergrift has just been dumped by her fiance and left in the middle of, well, Middleburg, VA where she knows absolutely NO ONE! When it comes to Trish Perry books, you have to know that when the characters are put into uncomfortable situations, there will be lessons learned, but on top of that, they’ll learn them in sometimes hilarious ways.

That’s probably the best part of The Perfect Blend. Life is going along for Steph, she’s trying to find work, a place to live, some support, and all of a sudden she hears something or sees someone and happens will leave you laughing out loud!

Oh, and I have to say, I’m especially partial to this book because she uses the name, Mimi, in it. Sure, it’s not me, but I am somewhat biased by the name. =) If you are looking for some great reading to brighten up your day, The Perfect Blend is the perfect choice!

I taught not far from Middleburg,VA for a long time. This book sounds fun. I wonder if I would recognize the Middleburg in the book.
