He’s the Spare Heir of Bliss’s most famous jewelry shop.
Max Gregory’s family is best known for creating and displaying the infamous Mrs. Claus diamond ring, but here in the bridal capital of the world, Max is best known for having a cursed love life. Not that he believes in curses. Or he didn’t, until he met her.
She’s the daughter of a notorious jewel thief Merry Silver’s parents have wreaked havoc on her life. After her last romantic disaster—thanks, Daddy—she’s fleeing the country for a chance at normal. But first, she has to avoid her favorite ex-boyfriend while she gets her mom married off. Again.
And their Christmas miracle might be a second chance at love.
Max was horrified when he discovered why Merry disappeared last year. Now she’s back in Bliss for a wedding, and her father may be after his family’s most prized possession. But is it the diamond Max is worried about? Or is he afraid of losing the only woman who’s ever made him want to settle down?
Either way…the family jewels are in danger.
Merried is available now as an Audible Audiobook!
MERRIED: Misfits Brides of Bliss #5
by Jamie Farrell
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
MERRIED, the 5th book in Jamie Farrell’s Misfit Brides of Bliss series is Max Gregory’s story. Max’s family owns the With This Ring jewelry store in Bliss. Max who found the Golden Bouquet and has been cursed with seven years of bad luck in love. Of course, Max says, Who cares if all his girlfriends leave him, that’s just life… not a curse. Max doesn’t believe in curses.
Merry Silver was the last woman to leave Max. Not because he’s cursed, but because she’s cursed with a family that is trouble… especially for someone in the jewelry business. The last place she wants to be is back in Bliss. Back in the town where Max lives so that she can relive her heartbreak every time she sees him. But her Mom is getting married. Again. And this time it simply must be in this lovely, romantic town that is completely focused on weddings. Nothing less will do when it’s your seventh marriage.
As typical of Ms. Farrell’s writing this story was sweet and humorous in so many ways. I really loved the ending, but have to admit I struggled a bit through the book. First of all, I missed the more constant input of the major characters and townspeople of Bliss I’ve grown to love that were in the first four books. But more than that, the constant back in forth in time in order to relate Max and Merry’s story was sometimes hard to follow. But again, there were so many memorable scenes, new quirky characters to love, and a fabulous ending that made me so glad I stuck it out to the end.
~I listened to the audio version of Merried and was very pleased with the character portrayals voiced by the narrator.
