It’s spring time, but here in Southern California we are having summer-like weather already and it got me thinking about all the fun things to look forward to each summer:
- Lots of sunshine
- Long days (which mean more reading time:-) )
- Barbecues and cook outs
- Beaches (not that I ever get to go)
- Summer fashion (of course!) and make-up
- Weddings and wedding fashion
I am looking forward to exploring new genres this year but I’ll still be dedicated to my favorites and what’s better than a fun, flirty wedding-themed romance? I plan to start off my summer reading with Lynnette Austin’s The Best Laid Wedding Plans, book one in the Magnolia Brides series.
SOME DREAMS ARE WORTH WHATEVER IT TAKES
Jenni Beth Beaumont left her broken heart behind when she took her dream job in Savannah. But after her brother’s death, Jenni Beth returns home to help mend her parents’ hearts as well as restore their beautiful but crumbling antebellum mansion. New dreams take shape as Jenni Beth sets to work replacing floors and fixing pipes to convert the family homestead into the perfect wedding destination. However, some folks in their small Southern town are determined to see her fail.
Cole Bryson was once the love of Jenni Beth’s life, but the charming architectural salvager has plans of his own for the Beaumont family home. As the two butt heads, old turmoil is brought to the surface and Cole and Jenni Beth will have to work through some painful memories and tough realities before they can set their pasts aside and have a second chance at their own happily ever after.
Speaking of weddings, there is an impressive line up of wedding-themed books coming out this summer and first up is Every Bride Has Her Day, the second book in Lynnette Austin’s Magnolia Brides series in May, now available for pre-order.
To celebrate the release of Every Bride Has Her Day, Sourcebooks Casablanca is giving away a free copy of The Best Laid Wedding Plans via iBooks! For a chance to win, in the comments below share what you are looking forward to this summer and get 5 entries.
About Every Bride Has Her Day
Can love revive a wilting heart?
Cricket O’Malley can’t wait to plant roots back home in Georgia, where she’s returned to restore an abandoned flower shop to its former glory. The only blemish? Her neighbor’s house is even more neglected than her old flower shop, and its occupant seems as surly as he is darkly handsome.
Devastated body and soul after a tough case went south, New York City detective Sam DeLuca thought he’d have no trouble finding solitude in the quiet Georgia town of Misty Bottoms, but his bubbly neighbor seems determined to shine happiness into Sam’s life. Sam is equally determined to close himself off, but his heart says otherwise…
