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?

I fell in love with the location and the people of Heart’s Landing with ease and this small town is perfect for romance, weddings, and the beginning of a new series – Heart’s Landing.

A Simple Wedding is a fun, delightful tale of, well, a behind the scenes bridezilla in the form of movie star Kay who is determined to have her wedding in the most romantic setting of Heart’s Landing… without cameras rolling.  And one sweet cousin who works for the bride-to-be and has to pretend to be something she’s not – the bride, while falling in love with the perfect for her man.  Jenny works for her cousin, the famous movie star (or so she behaves) and, quite frankly, feels obligated to do Kay’s bidding without argument since it was Jenny’s aunt who raised her after her parent’s deaths.  She’s put up with a lot but now pretending to be the bride to keep her cousin’s secret is proving very distracting.  Especially since the man of her own dreams, Nick, thinks she’s about to walk down the aisle with someone else.  Talk about awkward and complicated.

I had so much fun with A Simple Wedding.  It’s lighthearted with a few grumble, bridezilla moments and brings together two people who would truly fit perfectly together – if only that secret wasn’t hanging over Jenny’s head.  It’s a fun, emotional journey to watch Nick and Jenny fall in love in spite of everything happening around them.  And the ending… was worth the wait.

Looking for a fun, believable romance to get you through the rough spots of life?  Then you’ll want to pick up the first story in the Heart’s Landing series as soon as possible.
