Welcome to Two-Time Texas:
Where tempers burn hot
Love runs deep
And a single marriage can unite a feuding town
…or tear it apart for good
In the wild and untamed West, time is set by the local jeweler…but Two-Time Texas has two: two feuding jewelers and two wildly conflicting time zones. Meg Lockwood’s marriage was supposed to unite the families and finally bring peace. But when she’s left at the altar by her no-good fiancé, Meg’s dreams of dragging her quarrelsome neighbors into a ceasefire are dashed.
No wedding bells? No one-time town.
Hired to defend the groom against a breach of promise lawsuit, Grant Garrison quickly realizes that the only thing worse than small-town trouble is falling for the jilted bride. But there’s something about Meg’s sweet smile and determined grit that draws him in…even as the whole crazy town seems set on keeping them apart.
Who knew being Left at the Altar could be such sweet, clean, madcap fun?
A Match Made in Texas
Left at the Altar
To Win a Sheriff’s Heart
How the West was Wed
Brownley's 19th-century western romance leaves much to be desired. When Tommy Farrell leaves Meg Lockwood at the altar in Two-Time, Tex., her father files a $10,000 breach-of-promise lawsuit against him. Humiliated by her father's insistence that she is now "damaged goods," Meg is also horrified by her attraction to Grant Garrison, the new-to-town lawyer Tommy hires. The two friends were marrying to end their fathers' long-standing feud; as the town's two jewelers, they set time locally, and each worked on a different clock. The feud's genesis is anything but mysterious, and the townsfolk fulfill roles straight out of Central Casting, from Meg's suffragist sister to the outlaw awaiting hangin'. Choppy storytelling does not serve the romance.
