Publisher's Summary

Maggie vowed to never marry a man who can't laugh or dance, but when she and the dull new doctor in town, Everett Dulanis, wind up spending the night together in an abandoned dugout house, all that changes. Her father is the best man and his shotgun is the bridesmaid at the wedding where a union has been made, but there's certainly no unity.

Everett was engaged to Carolina Prescott, a southern lady in Atlanta, Georgia. But that, too, comes to an end when he awakes with nothing but a blanket around him and the cold barrel of a shotgun pressed against his forehead. Maggie, simple-minded and fun-loving, is as far removed from what he wants and needs in a wife as a hog straight from the wallow. Even though he keeps protesting that nothing happened in that dugout shack, he has no choice but to marry the woman.

Somewhere in the middle of undoing the knot that had been tied by mistake, Maggie and Everett find they've fallen in love and don't want to end their marriage. But will either of them ever admit it?

Past or present feels like you are there

I enjoyed this book immensely. After completing it I looked for a sequel. Maggie is sassy, smart and amusing. The book had a great start, not slow, but set you right in the midst of the action from the beginning. The wit of the characters were apparent. The storyline caused the reader to root for one character and then another, much like a see—saw. Just when you thought you could predict the next occurrence, it would take a turn and offer a surprise. This book I will listen to again.

Maggie's Mistake

I absolutely love these books from Carolyn Brown. I cannot put some of them down. This was a story that kept you turning the pages to read as much as you could without putting it down.

Entertaining

Laughed, cried, and smiled a lot. Will probably read again. Wish there was one more chapter to see Caroline get her just deeds.

Ridiculous mistake

Louisiana has Parishes not Countys. As someone from Louisiana this drive me crazy.
Otherwise, the story was very sweet and enjoyable.

Maggie’s Mistske

I loved the story. It’d been a bit better if the Cajun word Cher had been pronounced correctly. It’s ‘sha’
With the a as in apple. Terrebonne is a parish, not a county.

Schizophrenic characters...

Wow...what an unusual book (which I returned). Characters would change personalities (and accents/dialect/tone/inflection) on a dime. Characters also lacked depth. Storyline was certainly not unique and not endearing. Listened to 4 chapters and had to stop as I started to feel "stupid." Writing style was immature. How did this get good reviews???
