Publication Date: 25th February 2020
Estimated Page Count – 181
This is a delightful, laugh out loud, fun romance that I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into! Polly is getting married and ropes her older sister, Laura, into hosting and hiding Hunter, an old friend of her husband-to-be. so he can make a surprise appearance at their joint pre-wedding party. Reluctantly Laura agrees but she never anticipated Hunter McQueen being such a giant of a man both in size and personality!
This is a story exploring secrets from the past, supporting your family, reconnecting with an old friend and how talking can help heal old wounds and bring people closer together. It is a lovely, moving story – a light read that actually deals sensitively with some difficult issues. It is another brilliant read from this talented author, with great characters, plenty of twists, some tasty treats and a heartwarming romance. I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone looking for an enthralling contemporary romance to escape into.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
Out with the old life, in with the new …
When Laura’s bride-to-be sister, Polly, organises a surprise reunion for her fiancé and his long lost American friend, Laura grudgingly agrees to help keep the secret. And when the plain-spoken, larger-than-life Hunter McQueen steps off the bus in her rainy Devon town and only just squeezes into her tiny car, it confirms that Laura has made a big mistake in going along with her sister’s crazy plan.
But could the tall, handsome man with the Nashville drawl be just what reserved Laura Williams needs to shake up her life and start something new?
