There Goes the Bride
Delaney Cartwright has delayed her wedding twice. Now the Houston socialite is finally going to marry the boy next door, the man who grew up with her. Her marriage to Evan will be the event of the year. But she's having her doubts. Where's the passion? the flare? Theirs is a comfortable relationship from years of knowing each other. He's the only man she ever dated.
Then Delaney is caught in an embarrassing situation witnessed by a Houston police detective out on medical leave. She is glad (isn't she?) that she won't face him again after that fiasco. But Fate and Delaney's magic wedding veil have other plans...
Delaney owns a company that prepares houses for curb appeal for sale. She agrees to take on a home owned by an Italian woman whose husband died recently after over 50 years of marriage. The renovation costs are high, but Delaney and Lucia come to an agreement. Much of the work will be done by Lucia's family. That's when Delaney discovers that the stranger who witnessed her most embarrassing moment is Lucia's grandson, Nick. Since he's out on medical leave, he's the perfect member to help with the house repairs. The two of them will be working closely together for the next four to six weeks.
There Goes the Bride is a charming romance novel. Lori Wilde is able to combine Delaney's angst over two men with an ethical standard with enough spice to please any romance reader. Delaney's dead sister visits her dreams to give the reader perspective into their parents. Nick gives the perspective of her relationship with Evan.
Wilde keeps a good pace, bringing in Delaney's three friends for future novels in the Wedding Veil Wishes series. This is a good fluff beach novel.
Notice: Strong sexual content
