It was lovely to catch up on the lives of all the wonderful characters we met in Book One in the Emma Rae series. It was also great to have some new folk join in the fun at the Tanglewood Inn, the best wedding destination hotel around. There were more laughs, more romance and more Russell, the Australian who acts and speaks like a prototypical Australian rather than the real thing! This book could be read as a stand alone, but is more fun when read as part of the series. I look forward to reading more.
I had already chosen to read this book before I was asked to review it as I loved its predecessor! This series is such a departure from the norm that I have enjoyed the inner workings of the wedding industry--all with a good, strong sense of humor and, yet, also with compassion for the many facets that can go wrong at any stage of preparation.
The scenes are rich with description and the characters are delightful. One might expect the main characters to resemble one another in the same series, but each one is strong in his/er own right and have many of the concerns and insecurities that we all experience.
These books make me laugh and tear up! I simply enjoy reading them for pleasure and that is a thing that is rare any more!
