Fun romance
3 stars By Hannah, May 03 2017
This was such a fun story! I loved the big family and how they all look out for each other, for better or worse. But alongside the fun and laughter, there were also some big issues dealt with like forgiveness, trust, faith and honesty. Great story and can't wait to read more about this close family.

Fantastic start to a great series
4 stars By Margot, Apr 29 2016
Wedding planner, Anne Hathaway is used to coordinating weddings.  When she meets George Laurence,  he seems to be exactly what she always dreamed of in a husband. Then she realises that he is a client, and is engaged. Or that is how it appears. That is what he wants her to believe. So Anne continues planning his wedding, hoping no one realises she has fallen in love with George. The story is complex, with lots of intertwined characters and sub-plots, many twists and secrets. I will certainly be looking out for more from Kaye Dacus. Her writing is witty and funny, and the characters are normal people with everyday problems. Highly recommended.

Fun
4 stars By sarah, Apr 01 2014
This book was lots of fun, with the main characters trying to keep up a charade while falling in love. I appreciated the family atmosphere that constantly surrounded Anne and George, the constant meddling and support. Kaye discussed the issues of bitterness and forgiveness in a gentle manner, allowing the reader to consider their own lives and what God can do in a confusing situation. It was a light read despite some of the deeper issues discussed, and would be easily enjoyed by fans of her other fiction.

A taste of southern charm
5 stars By Ausjenny, Jan 24 2009
I read this book this week and wanted to keep reading more each time I would pick it up. Kaye has created a wonderful story and seeing how it plays out was fun. The book captures the essense of the South with big family get togethers, food, and Southern Charm. Add to the mix an Englishman and its an entertaining book. There are alot of serious issues dealt with in the book and seeing how they are resolved part of the appeal. I loved the way Kaye deals with certain issues many of us face in different ways and shows how God can work in us to help us deal with these issues. There is alot of fun in this book also and its a really good read. I am looking forward to book 2.
