Wedding fever has hit the little town of Marietta…
Lisa Renee loves weddings. As owner of Marietta’s bridal salon, Lisa takes charge when a celebrity wedding rolls into town and does what she does best: hosting the fairy tale wedding her clients dream of. But the celebrity’s badly behaving bridesmaids shatter Lisa’s poise, excitement, and hopes of putting Marietta and her boutique on the map. The only place she can find peace is on the pediatric ward of the local hospital where she volunteers, a place that holds more meaning to her than anyone knows. Leave it to the handsome and charming new doctor to change all of that…
Dr. Adam Brady is enjoying his new job and anonymity at Marietta’s hospital, but he hasn’t been able to focus entirely since the gorgeous business owner and hard-working volunteer piqued his interest. As he spends more time with her, sparks fly, and he realizes that he’s not the only one in Marietta with secrets…
Sweet romance in the town of Marietta, Montana.
It is always lovely to visit the town, and 'meet' with the old friends from there. This story is the first one in the wedding series, and it certainly puts the reader in the mood for romance and weddings.
There was extra spice to the story with the celebrity wedding preparations (what happen to the couple, and the wedding?? I really wanted to know...) and the problems with Lisa's sister, that didn't come into a complete conclusion as well.
I loved the volunteering Lisa was doing at the hospital. Also the drama and danger that came with Adam's complete surrender to his job, and dedication to help all, no matter the situation, gave more depth to the story, even though it brought a few wrinkles in the fragile and new relationship.
The romance between Adam and Lisa is not easy. The attraction and connection is there, but like everyone else, they have history, and past, that they rather keep to themselves. But despite the many events that put waves on the romance between the doctor and wedding gown shop owner, love wins. Clearly through the story comes the message how important honesty, openness, and trust is in any relationship.
A lovely novella, perfect for a rainy spring evening
