I was delighted when I was contacted by the author and asked if I wanted to review this book. I read the blurb and immediately knew I wanted to read it. The plot is not too heavy and I really enjoyed it, it was a feel good novel and I loved how the characters bounced off each other as the story moved through.
The main character of the book is Abby Blackwell, Abby runs a successful wedding planning business. She’s delighted when Derrick, her boyfriend of only a few short months proposes. Abby immediately accepts and dreams of the perfect wedding at the Rose Chalet. But, when Derrick with no explanation, pressures her to get married as soon as possible, she has to wonder why and drags her feet.
Derrick Coltrane’s future rests on portraying a settled, respectable and married man. All he needs is a wife—now—and Abby fits the bill. She’s successful, smart, gorgeous, and would make the perfect corporate wife. He just needs to convince her to tie-the-knot by the end of the month to close the most important deal of his career.
Hunter Price knows he’s made the biggest mistake of his life. Derrick, a friend from school, hires him to pretend he’s getting married, in an attempt to trick Abby into planning her own whirlwind wedding. Abby is selfless, sweet, tastes like sunshine, and belongs to someone else—and he just kissed her.
Two grooms-to-be—one bride-to-be and one bridesmaid. Which couple will walk down the aisle to happily ever after?
Well I can honestly say I was genuinely feeling happier when I got to the end, what a lovely way to feel after reading a book! This is the first work I have read by Sharon and it certainly won’t be the last – in fact I started another of her books last night I couldn’t wait!
