Charlotte Rose Hill has been serving up country delicacies, uniquely blended teas, and matchmaking advice for her quirky but beloved customers for more than 10 years. But for her, marriage seems like an elusive butterfly, always out of reach. At 18, Charlotte fell in love with a young man, Sam Wilder, but his family convinced her to walk away from their relationship. She did, and then became engaged to another man, who later died before they were married. Now, more than a decade later, Charlotte finds that she still has feelings for her first love. Initially thrilled to learn that Sam has come home to Middlebury, Texas, Charlotte is devastated to learn that he s brought someone with him: his fiancee. But all is not lost when the townsfolk decide to get involved. Will Charlotte and Sam find their way back to each other?
A Marriage in Middlebury tells the story of Charlotte Rose Hill. She lives in a small town, and is loved by everyone. She is the owner of Rose Hill Tea Room, and takes pride in knowing her customers enough to make them their own special blends of tea. She is content, but when she hears that her high school sweetheart is returning to town after being gone for nearly 20 years, she’s not sure what to think. In the meantime, Sam Wilder has come back to Middlebury due to the failing health of his father. He seeks Charlotte out right away, but only to tell her of his engagement to a woman named Audrey, who ironically, ends up asking Charlotte to cater their wedding. Though Sam and Charlotte try to fight it, it becomes obvious to everyone around them that they still have feelings for each other.
