They’ve helped orchestrate the perfect day for countless couples. Now twelve new couples will find themselves in the wedding spotlight in the second Year of Weddings novella collection.
An owner of a Victorian inn and charming rustic barn is used to creating the perfect setting for other couples’ nuptials. But when she falls head over heels for the new man in her life, will she be prepared to walk down that aisle?
And so begins another year of weddings. In this second series, the couples will come from a range of professions dedicated to creating the perfect weddings for others – and who may just find some romance of their own.
In this book, Hope, both an accountant and manager of her aunt’s barn wedding venue, is shocked to hear that her prom-night marriage to high-school sweetheart John, just might be legal. After all these years, this is hardly the news Hope was expecting. Nor was going home to find that John has returned to Harmony. And intends to stay.
One line in the book stands out to me where Hope comments that the situation reminds her of a scene from a soap opera. Well, I felt like this whole book was straight from a soap opera. As experienced from the first Year of Weddings series, some books in the series I really enjoyed and other were just not for me. This book falls under the latter category. Unfortunately, I didn’t like the contrived plot or characters. That certainly doesn’t mean that others won’t enjoy this romance, and the tangle that Hope and John find themselves in as they struggle with their ‘marriage’, Hope’s aunt’s (who also happens to be John’s foster mother) matchmaking, and their unresolved feelings for each other.
