Left at the Altar amused me. Yes - the love affair between the h, Meg, and the H, Grant, is wildly unrealistic, but, for some reason, that didn't worry me. Maybe because Brownley got me to like them?
Left at the Altar is also spoofy and full of caricatures that may offend some Texans. I laughed out loud at some of the idiocies. And acknowledged that Brownley balanced the "craziness" by showing the townspeople's courage and generosity after the disaster towards the end of the story. Moreover, Brownley's tale is given more grunt by the inclusion of some great and complex characterisations, as well as more witty, non-slapstick humour and even a few touches of pathos.
The author also offers another layer to the sweet love story that I found interesting. I not only learned, for the first time, that "Texas" meant "friend" in the local indigenous Indian language, I became aware (also for the first time) of the history of idiosyncratic time-keeping in 19th century US. (I already knew about the predilection for inhabitants in the US to "sue" the pants off one another, but this theme in the story provided another attraction.)
It's hard to rate this story. It's well written. It's funny. It's sad. It has a sweet HEA. Nevertheless, it ain't five star. It's a three and a half, rounded up.
Enjoy this romantic comedy of sorts, as a bizarre love triangle snares the heart of an eastern bred attorney, Grant Garrison, as he attempts to settle a breach-of-promise lawsuit between Meg Lockwood and Tommy Farrell, only to discover that his own intentions have been compromised by a lovely set of turquoise eyes and a hope chest full of lacy unmentionables.
It's a good thing that Meg has sisters, because it appears that Margaret Brownley has more tales to tell in her engaging (pun intended) "A Match Made in Texas" series.
