Two little girls become instant friends and try there hand at match making when it back fires they decided to take there orneriness to a whole new level. Can they get away with it while there parents work together to make a wedding happen without another hitch? I loved how the author uses to young girls with so much personality in this story. I really also enjoyed how the story felt more realistic then fiction. The relationship between Kelly and Bruce seemed natural as well, however at the end it did seem a little rushed. This book is a good clean read and suitable for all ages. I really enjoyed this quick read over all.

Welcome back to Matrimony Valley where florist Kelly Nelson is in charge of coordinating the town’s most unique wedding yet. She has a plan...and a plan b, c, and d. Bruce is still numb after the death of his wife two years ago. But his daughter keeps him going, and in an attempt to spend quality time with her, they arrive in Matrimony Valley a week prior to the wedding in which Bruce is best man and Carly is the flower girl. Kelly and Bruce rub some raw wounds in each other at first. Kelly is forthright, speaking truth when Bruce is sometimes not ready to hear it. AndBruce is so far buried in his grief, he often doesn’t focus enough on the here and now. And of the cuteness of each of their daughters!! When put together, it’s double the adorable (and double the trouble). Allie Pleiter shines a spotlight on the difficulties, challenges, and sorrow that come with losing a spouse too soon while offering glimpses of hope and promise of coming out on the other side of grief. As the residents of the valley pull together to save a wedding that has every challenge thrown at it, including a winter storm and a persnickety wedding feature writer, two little matchmakers set their sights on making their parents happy. With all of that help, Bruce and Kelly just might discover that God is indeed the God of second chances.

Snowbound with the Best Man is another winner from Allie Pleiter! It's the second book in the Matrimony Valley series, but stands alone great. It's a story full of heart and second chances featuring two little girls set on matchmaking their parents. Kelly and Bruce have both suffered devastating losses and are doing their very best coping with their grief. But it's hard, so hard. Bruce is numb to everything, feeling like a zombie moving through life. He's isolated himself from God and his church while Kelly's done the opposite and has surrounded herself with God, friends, and her church. They have so much in common, but are complete opposites in many ways too. They're great characters who I loved getting to know and watch grow throughout the story. And their little girls were so adorable. I enjoyed being back in the charming town of Matrimony Valley. It's such an inviting town full of friendly residents and cute “matrimony” themed businesses. It's the perfect small town setting. I highly recommend Snowbound with the Best Man to anyone who enjoys sweet, inspirational romances. I can't wait for the next book! I received a complimentary copy of this book and voluntarily reviewed it. All thoughts and comments are my honest opinion.

Snowbound with the best man I really enjoyed the story of Bruce and and Kelly and their young daughters. Carly and LuLu really hit it off and wants to be sisters. They become matchmakers. Kelly is trying to put a wedding together and the best man comes early. The snow comes so will the wedding happen? I am loving the Matrimony Valley series, I could really see both of the books in the series would make good Hallmark movies. The children in both books really brings so much to the story. I am looking forward to reading the more in this series. The characters are so real.
