Fall in love with Heart’s Landing,
a romantic wedding destination,
in the first book of a Hallmark series.
Jenny always dreamed of getting married at Heart’s Landing. But when she finally visits the charming small town, she’s there to make wedding arrangements for someone else: her cousin, who also happens to be her boss and a famous movie star. To keep the event secret and avoid a media circus, Jenny pretends she’s the one getting married.
Nick is intrigued by this bride-to-be who starts visiting his bakery every afternoon for sweet treats and conversation. He has to keep reminding himself that she’s already spoken for.
As Jenny deals with her cousin’s ever-changing demands, she tries to hide her attraction to Nick. Planning this wedding couldn’t be more complicated…and what will happen once the truth comes to light?
This funny, heartwarming romance includes a free original recipe for the best-ever Lemon Bars.
Jenny and Nick are both great characters. They have their own aspirations, great chemistry, and good reasons to not get together with the other.
The side characters are all equally likable, with the exception of Jenny’s cousin Kay, who had me wanting to scream at Jenny for not setting better boundaries. But she’s still a well-written character, and the family drama was an important part of the plot.
This is a sweet story that lacks the normal machinations in a contemporary romance, which was refreshing.
I would give this book 4 stars, because even though it starts off slowly, once the story picks up, I couldn’t put it down.
