As a wedding planner, Anne Hathaway is used to coordinating and attending weddings, never being the bride. But then she meets George Laurence, and he seems to be exactly what she always dreamed of in a husband. She quickly discovers that he is a client, and is engaged with his heart belonging to someone else. She forges ahead with the business relationship, hoping that no one has realized she has more than a mere passing interest in her client. Will she loose her business for falling in love with George? Or does something bigger than both of them mean to stand in their way?
Despite the fact that this was the quirkiest retelling of a wedding EVER, I found the story enjoyable and interesting. Dacus may not be the most popular author of the genre, but I found her writing witty and funny. The people in this book find themselves in predicaments throughout the book, and there is character growth and development on all sides. Even after reading this first book from the Brides of Bonneterre Series, I would still have bought it if I had it to re-do. Charming, funny, heartwarming and big family drama all play a part in this story of a Louisiana family. Don't miss out on this lighthearted read.
This is the first Kaye Dacus book I've read and I have the other two in this series yet to read. The book overall was good and had a good story. But, sometimes the author got repitious saying the same thing over and over just in a different way. That got tiring. But, overall it was good and had some funny parts.
I made a mistake in ordering three books by this author when i hadn't read one by her before. The plots sounded interesting, and indeed they are, but they aren't well developed, there are no sub-plots, and the endings are so clearly telegraphed that the reader can't get deeply involved. I also think it's silly to imagine a heroine or hero "falling in love" with someone they've known less than a month. That kind of "love" may happen in the world, but Christians should hold out for getting to know someone's character before they think about "love." I'm sorry to bash any Christian author, but I think this one needs to read Catherine Palmer or Robin Jones Gunn to see what good fiction sounds like.
Great book! This is an easy, fun-to-read book whether at the end of a busy day with your feet propped up or while relaxing at the beach. I liked it so much that I bought several to give as gifts. And if you enjoy this book, you'll enjoy the next book in the series, Menu for Romance....I know I did! They will make great Christmas gifts.
