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.
“The Perfect Blend” is truly a perfect blend of sweetness, laughter, and kind people reaching out to a woman who thought she was eloping but instead was left at the altar and was too embarrassed to go home.
All of the characters of the book were genuine. The book setting seemed to come so much to life one could almost smell the baked goods and coffee.
“ But she also knew, like a vapor in the midst of her dread, that everything would work out alright.”
