Emily has just been dumped by her high powered lawyer boyfriend, whom she had supported through law school, so when her sister April shatters her leg in a car accident, Emily packs up her life and goes to stay with her in the small town of Willow Creek, Maryland. April's daughter, Caitlin, wants to participate in the local Renaissance faire, but Emily is told that since Caitlin is underage, she must have an adult participate with her. Emily sees no choice but to join in, even though, Simon, one of the organizers, makes it seem as though she can do nothing right. The animosity between Emily and Simon grows until the time for the faire nears when Emily starts to see that there is another side to Simon.
Well Met is a term used during the Renaissance period, meaning nice to meet you or pleased to meet you, which describes Emily's indoctrination into the world of the Renaissance faire. Emily's position as serving wench at the faire is symbolic of the way Emily looks at herself after her boyfriend left; she feels unworthy of attention or love. Her lack of confidence borders on annoying, but never tips too far over that line. Overall, this is a fun, light romance with likable characters and an enjoyable plot.
