It will come as no surprise, considering that this is yet another title from one of the Queen’s of Romance, that this book is an outstanding example of romantic comedy. From the first page to the last, this story is one big laugh.
Taking place in the great state of Texas, a wedding is about to happen. The bride, Lucy Jorick, is the daughter of a former President of the United States; and the groom, Ted Beaudine, is the ‘favorite son’ and also Mayor of Wynette, Texas. The bride’s best friend and maid of honor, Meg Koranda, is the daughter of two Hollywood legends. So with all this star power…the story begins.
After meeting Ted, Meg is sure that he’s not the man for her friend and tells Lucy this fact. Lucy decides that Meg is right and runs out on her wedding at the very last minute. Of course, Meg is blamed for the whole fiasco and is left holding the bag. The whole town hates her – most of all, the jilted groom. Meg’s family in Hollywood refuse to aid her in leaving the dust of Texas behind and she is suddenly stuck in the one-horse town until she can get enough money together to get out.
Unable to leave Wynette, Meg is adamant about proving that she doesn’t need their help. And Ted, who is carrying the future of this little town on his shoulders, has made it his mission to make Meg pay, even though she was right in the first place. I think we can all guess where the chemistry and attraction starts to explode.
I really loved Meg. She is a strong character that pulls herself together and makes a life for in this little town, fighting the citizens every step of the way. The plot is a whole lot of fun, and you definitely route for Meg to win!
Until Next Time, Everybody,
