A Wife For Humphrey
by Christina Lorenzen
Edition: ebook, 2016
Synopsis: Runaway bride Danna and her handsome new husband are happily setting up a new home and business in the small town of Harmony, where only months before they’d been stranded strangers together. While unpacking boxes Danna finds the gift from Minnie she’d never remembered to open. After finding the delicate silver locket with a young soldier’s picture in it, hopeless romantic Danna has to find out who he is. Once she finds out that the soldier was the only man Minnie had ever loved and lost, she’s determined to find out if Humphrey Lewis still loves Minnie. Is there a chance for Minnie to have her happily ever after? It couldn’t hurt to check, could it? Though she should be working side by side with her sweet new husband in their soon to be opening antique shop, Danna becomes more and more invested in this decades old love story. And when she finally tracks down Humphrey, nothing, not even his disapproving grandson or a minor fall, will stop her from reuniting these two sweet people who never stopped loving one another.
Happily married, Danna is settling into her new home. When she discovers a locket, gifted to her by her friend Minnie, and the picture of the soldier her friend had loved, she sets out to reunite old lovers, all while helping her new husband with their store and dealing with her mother-in-law.
I didn’t realize this was a sequel when I first picked it up. Happily, it doesn’t leave a new reader confused about what happened in the first book but also doesn’t have too much repetition that would bore someone who has read the first book. The characters themselves were highly enjoyable and the writing excellent.
This is a definite read for anyone who loves a contemporary, light-hearted read.
