In town for his annual family visit, Marc Olsen had never seen a bride quite like Matilda - staring into a storefront window, holding a tottering wedding cake, and looking desperately in need of a groom. He may not have any warm feelings for his hometown, but meeting Matilda just as she discovers she's been scammed by her online "fiancé" stirs something in him.
Matilda is not the kind of woman Marc imagined himself with, and Marc is anything but the romantic hero that Matilda has always dreamed of. But as unlikely circumstances throw them together, can they let go of their misconceptions and risk their hearts for love?

Love this book.
Well written. However this Wisconsinite has to let you know that Manitowoc and Brat we're pronounced incorrectly. Also it was hard to tell where this place is ... Wausau and Manitowoc are hours apart. But the storyline was heartwarming and so something I could imagine happening in my fine state. Including a young man wanting to escape a small town life, only to realize that it was a great place to raise kids, especially in the summer. Since Spotted Cow is a WI favorite beer, I have to ask if there really is a Spotted Cow bar in eastern WI? I will definitely be reading (or listening to) more books by Fiona Lowe in the near future!

Fluffy Fun with Some Serious Undertones
On the surface, this was a lighthearted romance. As unbelievable plot line with a few too many contrived conveniences as I have come to expect from most stories in this genre, but the characters were quirky and endearing, they faced real problems and real trauma and yet stayed true to the idea of romance. The main characters were by and large likeable. She was a little too good-natured and naive and he was a little shallow and failed to see the obvious. But both were sympathetic and many of the secondary characters were even more so.
The undertones - that dealt with coming to grips with loss, letting go of long held harmful habits and dialog, the role playing that takes place in family dynamics - were dealt with well. They gave the plot meat, but didn't overwhelm the warmth of the romance.
Overall this was a very likeable book.
