When Meg comes to Texas for her best friend Lucy's wedding, she meets Lucy's perfect fiancé Ted. Lucy is perfect, Ted is perfect and their relationship seems perfect, but Meg picks up on something that feels wrong. She discusses all this with Lucy the night before the wedding and then on the day of the wedding, Lucy calls it off and runs off. Tthe doubts that Meg confronted her with have been plaguing her for a while. But in Wynette, Texas, Ted is the local hero/God and they all blame Meg for him being left at the altar and for his broken heart.

Circumstances beyond Meg's control leave her stranded and broke in Wynette. While she tries to make enough money to get out of town, the folks of Wynette and Ted himself take pleasure in tormenting the outsider. Their antics and attitudes both frustrated and humored me.

I loved this book. I laughed out loud and shed a few tears. Reading this book was like visiting with old friends you haven't seen in a while, yet feeling like no time has passed. I have been 1/2 in love with Teddy since he was a brilliant and awkward little boy in Fancy Pants and I fell completely in love with the man that little boy has grown into. Catching up with favorite characters from my favorite SEP books was fun and I loved every minute of it. Meg is crazy and quirky and the perfect match for the reliable Ted; Ying and Yang.

I can't wait to read Lucy's story as SEP promises it is in the works. I hope it is as charming as this one was.
