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?

Max sick in bed and Merry there to nurse him.
The bachelor auction... and then the ending scenes.
No crying, But it did make me laugh a few times.
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. 3.5 stars
~I listened to the audio version of Merried and was very pleased with the character portrayals voiced by the narrator.
I love all of her books however, this one was an exception. Having to hear the 13 year old protagonist in the book that the main character "Merry" was writing was painful. Every time I would be getting into the story the 13 year old's voice popped in ruining it. I couldn't finish it for that reason.
Jamie Ferrell never disappoints....this is just another example of her amazing ability to thoroughly entertain! I giggled out loud many times throughout the story and enjoyed all the characters’ comical ways, and the funny predicaments that came up were so humorous. I loved the internal conversations between Merry(Amber) and her book characters Phoebe Moon and Zack…so funny! My heart went out to Merry who has suffered with the consequences of having a jewel thief for a father. Her huge accomplishments with her secret life are admirable considering what she has gone through. Of course Max is simply amazing you just can't help but love him and hope for a good ending for him and Merry. This was truly an enjoyable story and Karen White once again does a wonderful job of bringing it to life.
