I don’t usually review novellas, but Julia London always makes me laugh out loud with her quirky characters and sexy romances. 🙂
Julia London’s The Bridesmaid is a story of a cross-country travel fiasco, fate, and love at first sight. Or rather, love at first road-trip…
Kate Preston is on her way from New York to Seattle for her best friend’s wedding when disaster strikes – and by “disaster” we mean more than just the peach raft of a dress that she’s lugging from coast to coast. Never mind the fact that she actually has to wear it… Anyway. First she gets a seat next to an armrest-hog, then weather grounds her flight in Dallas, then the air-traffic controllers go on strike. And she’s still thousands of miles from Seattle.
Then armrest-hog (Joe Firretti, by the way) gets a rental car, and in a second of good intention offers to drive Kate to Phoenix where they can try to get on a train to Seattle. So let’s see, that’s plane, train, and automobile (though not strictly in that order)… In between we have sass, flirtation, lack of a shower, and two people getting to know each other as only those who’re thrown together for a road-trip can. A gentlemanly hero who offers up the last seat on a flight to Seattle so she can get there first. A torn heroine who realizes that she’s found the man of her dreams – and he’s moving to the opposite coast.
It’s sexy and sweet, fun and entertaining. Pick up Julia London’s The Bridesmaid for a quick mood-lifter this fall!
drey’s rating: Pick it up!
