Series: Two Love Lane #2
Title: A Wedding at Two Love Lane by Kieran Kramer
Author: Kieran Kramer

First impressions can be so wrong – yet lead to something so right! This is a fairytale, contemporary romance in which the secret dreamer, Greer Jones, meets the artist and realist, Ford Smith, and wants to learn to dream himself! Greer is a techie who has been keeping scrapbook wedding plans for years but has never met the man with whom she’d like to put those plans into action. When she spots the wedding dress of her dreams being auctioned, she just has to bid on it, even though she’s not planning on marrying any time soon. Her arch enemy, however, is determined she won’t win it. She asks the handsome man next to her for help and to go to a party where there will be a raffle to win the dress, not realising he’s a member of the British peerage and not a penniless artist!
Get ready for laugh out loud moments, dreams, a fake engagement, nightmares and romance in this delightful story. The characters are fun, believable and easy to relate to. It is a lovely story, a great addition to the series and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I’m certainly looking forward to the next book in this series and have no hesitation in recommending this – and the previous story in the series, Christmas at Two Love Lane. I believe both stories may be read as a standalone though the ladies at Two Love Lane are key characters in both stories.
I requested and received a copy of this novel, via NetGalley. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.
Never say never when it comes to love.
Greer Jones has made a real name for herself at the elegant matchmaking agency Two Love Lane. For a lot of reasons—including a past engagement she broke off—practical tech expert Greer is more interested in the business of love than the experience of it, but she can’t help but covet a gorgeous wedding gown that’s the prize in an upcoming cocktail-party contest. In a moment of brazen inspiration, Greer asks a handsome Brit she’s only just met to accompany her to the party. He agrees—and Greer believes her date is a starving artist. Little does she know the truth. . .
Ford Smith, as he calls himself, is actually Stanford Elliott Wentworth Smythe, the Eighth Baron of Wickshire. Fresh off a breakup with a money-grubbing siren who deceived him all the way to the altar, Ford has no desire to fall in love—especially with Greer who, like the desired wedding gown, is beautiful but only skin-deep. But soon Ford realizes that there’s more to Greer than meets the eye. Her professionalism is matched only by her passion for life and love. . .and, best of all, she has no idea that he’s to the manor born. Could it be that true love is priceless after all?
