More Than Words Can Say is the second novel A Patchwork Family series.  While I have not had the opportunity to read More Than Meets the Eye, I found that I was not lost.  The author provided details from the first novel which featured Evangeline, Seth and Zach.  I am looking forward to reading More Than Meets the Eye which tells the story of Evangeline Hamilton and Logan Fowler.   I thought More Than Words Can Say was well-written with steady pacing.  Abigail, Zach and Rosie are delightful characters.  There are equally pleasing secondary characters like Reuben Sinclair and his wife.  Abigail cannot believe an antiquated law requiring a man’s name on the deed will be her downfall.  A marriage of convenience is the most logical solution and Abigail drafts up a contract.  Abigail wants to make sure she retains control of her bakery once she marries.  There are only three “eligible” men in town which consist of quiet, grumpy Zach, Elmer Beekman who has bad breath, and Clarence Ormandy with a domineering mother.  Zach is the best option, but he is not willing to settle for a marriage of convenience.  He finds Abigail attractive which she finds hard to believe.    But Abigail must admit that when she is with Zach, she finds her heart racing and wonders what it would be like to kiss Zach.  The road to happiness, though, is bumpy as they each have issues from their past that holds back from having a happy life together.  I enjoyed the humor sprinkled throughout the story (I laughed so often while reading More Than Words Can Say).  Zach and Abigail are cute together and I could not help but root for them.  Abigail’s faith is strong, and she works on getting Zach back on speaking terms with God.  Rosalind has a problem that she needs assistance with, and Zach is there to help her.  I look forward to reading Rosalind’s story.  I can tell that the author did her research for this book.  Honey Grove is a real town and Karen Witemeyer brought it alive.  I felt I was taken back in time with this charming historical novel.  More Than Words Can Say mixes one independent baker with one cantankerous man which produces an entertaining and witty story.
