Lily Stewart has reached a crossroads in her life. Her painting career hasn’t taken off, her best friend has changed beyond recognition, her relationship is a constant disappointment, and now she can’t keep up with the rising cost of living in the city. With no one to turn to, Lily is forced to move from her beloved apartment, but while packing she comes across a piece of mail that had slipped to the back of her junk drawer: a letter detailing further action needed to finalize the annulment of a quickie Vegas wedding. From ten years ago!
Lily decides it’s time to gather up the pieces of her life, and the first item on her list of things to fix is that annulment… but you can’t just send a text ten years later reading, “Hey BTW we are still married.” This is something that must be addressed in person, so Lily decides to track down her husband – the charming, enigmatic man she connected with all those years ago.
Ben Hutchinson left a high-profile dot-com lifestyle behind to return home to his family and the small lake town he loves, Minnow Bay. He’s been living off the grid with the express purpose of making it hard to be found–so the last thing he expects is a wife he didn’t know he had making her presence known.
By chance, Lily finds her way to the magical Minnow Bay Inn. There she will discover not just a place to lay her head, but new friends, new inspiration, and maybe even a new chance to fall in love.
Kelly Harms lights up the page in The Matchmakers of Minnow Bay, a story of the surprising beauty of past mistakes and the unexpected pleasures of correcting them.
