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?

Maggie's Mistake

This was a cute love story, although I was beginning to think, no one could be that dense to not know, after all those kisses that there was some kind of attraction. However, I thought back when I attended college in Logan County in Oklahoma, how dense I was back then. I didn't know I was cute, I didn't know I had a drop dead shape, I didn't know any guy could like me or think I was cute, not unless they verbally said so. Maggie's do exist.

Louisiana

Louisiana does not have counties it has parishes. If you're going to write a book about any particular place you should research that place. and the Cajun French, oh my goodness, that was horrible. the story would have been better if you didn't try to throw in that Louisiana Cajun French. I'm from Louisiana and it worked on my nerves every time I heard it. other than that the story was pretty good
