About the book:

     How can she choose between the love she thought she lost and the love she stumbled upon in the aftermath?

     Katie Fisher and Brady James may be a match made in heaven, but that doesn’t seem to guarantee them a happily ever after accompanied by angelic choirs. Katie’s almost-fiancĂ© Casey is back in Fairfield, ready to rekindle their relationship. And there’s nothing Katie’s parents want more than for their small-town girl to leave Dallas and come home for good.

     But can she really leave Brady behind? And will she ever be able to wear that gorgeous wedding dress she won?

My review:

     This is a delightful romantic comedy!

     This is part of a “true” series. You should take the time to read the first book of the series before this one.

     That said I have to admit that I didn’t realize this until I was about 50 pages into this book. I haven’t read book one and in many ways I was the confused girl because I didn’t know who all the characters were and how inter-connected they all are. I loved the story anyway and was able to follow what was going on within this particular book fairly well.

     There are so many very quirky characters of lots of different ages that it was a joy to try and figure them all out. A lot of the humor seemed to me to be based upon elderly people not understanding technology. For example Aunt Alva fell in love with the “radio program” that Katie listened to.

     There were plenty of people falling in love and sorting out their relationships. Most of them had funny missteps along the way to keep the amusement level high.

     Mixed in with all of the humor there is some healthy soul-searching and maturing done by a few of the characters. This makes for a nice blend of light-hearted laughter and encouragement to help the reader remember that growing up emotionally is part of life.

     I will definitely be going back and reading the first book. Then I’ll be looking for more titles in this very humorous series. This books is getting a 5 star rating from me and I’m highly recommending it. Just take time to read the first book before this one.
