I was trying out Kaye Dacus again. I had read one of her other books Ransome's Honor. Unfortunately, it was not the best book I've ever read. So for the longest time I said I was not going to read any of her books. But I came across this book, and it sounded interesting. I mean a wedding planner falling for the groom? Too funny! It wasn't as good as I'd hoped. It was good don't get me wrong. But it wasn't the best. It had some funny parts, mostly with Anne's cousins. I loved that George was British. When the people in the books have an accent, it just makes the book better! I always read what they say in in my head in that accent. ;) I didn't like that George had to lie to Anne almost throughout the entire book. In the beginning, he pretended to be someone he wasn't. Then at the end he had to not tell her who his employer was. That was frustrating!
Then Anne she does NOT trust well! Someone says something and she's real angry and doesn't talk to them for days! She pouts and doesn't even think that maybe they were doing it for someone's best interest. She overacts then afterwards she feels terrible, and thinks she's a horrible person and the person does not deserve to be in the same room with her!
I loved Mama Ketty though. She was Georges housekeeper. She was so wise and funny. She was always saying everyone had too much skin and bones they needed some meat on their bones. :D I liked Anne's cousin Jennifer (Jenn). She was funny. She was constantly telling Anne that George was hot and if he had a younger brother for her. :P
I won't give away much because you really have to read it to know a lot.
My next book will be the next book in this series Menu For Romance, Meridith's story.
