Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: Avoiding Marriage by Karin Berry





Book:  Avoiding Marriage

Author: Karin Beery

Genre: Women’s Fiction

Release date: April 13, 2021

Two years ago, Jessica Miller made a mess of her already confusing life. Now, she’s back in Boyne Heights, and she’s determined to fix her reputation. She can’t seem to avoid the past that haunts her, but that’s the joy of small-town life—word spreads and people remember. Intent on her mission, however, she faces her past head-on, taking a job with her ex-boyfriend while avoiding her grandmother’s attempts to find her a new one.

Avoiding Marriage by Karin Beery is the follow up novella to Practically Married. I did not read Practically Married(YET), but I found this book easy to follow and understand. 

Jessica Miller has returned home to Boyne Heights and is determined to straighten up somethings that happened in the past and has ruined her reputation. Boyne Heights is a small town, so everyone knows everything about everyone. She takes a job at a local Farm that is owned by her Ex and his new wife, Ashley. Jessica's Grandma is intent on playing matchmaker and finding Jessica a potential suitor to marry. Will Jessica be able to fix her past issues and make things right? Will Granny be able to convince Jessica to find a suitor and marry? 

I truly enjoyed this book from the first page. It is a Short Novella and I was finished in a couple of hours. I really like how Jessica and Ashley formed a great friendship. Jessica has a sweet personality and even through her struggles she is upbeat about life. Jessica's Granny is fun loving and sweet. Karin Beery has a great writing style that really draws the reader in. GREAT BOOK! 






Karin Beery grew up in a rural Michigan town, where she wrote her first novel in high school. Today, she writes contemporary stories with a healthy dose of romance. When she’s not writing fiction, she’s reading, editing, or teaching it. In her free time, she enjoys watching University of Michigan football and action-adventure movies with her husband and fur babies.

I am so excited to go back to Boyne Heights!

 

**SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t read Practically Married, skip the following paragraph and go to the next!

 

When we Boyne Heights, Russ was in a hospital bed after a car accident with Ashley by his side, and they’d agreed to get really married, not just practically married. That was around Thanksgiving. Now it’s spring time. Russ and Ashley are enjoying the newly wed life, but they need help. Enter Jessica Miller.

 

**(START HERE)

Jess is exactly what Russ and Ashely need at the Russell farm, but nothing is ever as easy as it sounds. I mean, Jess thought she was going to marry Russ—now she’s working for him and his new wife? As if that’s not enough, Gran’s adjusting a little too well to life in the care home, meeting every single guy there to introduce to her favorite granddaughter, but Jess doesn’t have time. On top of the new job, it looks like her brother might be relapsing, and her wayward mother’s name keeps popping up in conversations.

 

I hadn’t planned on writing Jess’s story, I kept asking myself: what kind of woman did Russ date before he met Ashley? I knew the ex-girlfriend had to be smart, kind, motivated, yet hurting. It was so much fun to explore her story!

 

I hadn’t planned to go back to Boyne Heights, but I definitely enjoyed the trip. I hope you will too!
