It's the wedding all of Valentine Valley has been waiting for!
Bridesmaid Heather Armstrong arrives for Nate and Emily's big weekend only to discover that one of the ushers is the man she had a close encounter with when they were trapped by a blizzard seven months ago—and he's the bride's brother!
Cowboy Chris Sweet never forgot the sexy redhead, although she disappeared without a trace. At first the secret creates a divide between them, but as they grow closer during the romantic weekend, will Heather dare risk her heart again?
What happens when you run into that “one-night” stand that never called? Worst yet, it happens at the wedding of your best friend? A Wedding in Valentine explores that exact scenario and is a sweet novella that not only introduces us to the town of Valentine but features Chris and Heather who threw caution to the wind seven months ago and had the hottest night of their lives.
Although only a novella, I felt that Chris and Heather’s story was a complete one. Chris is such a sweetie, although his initial reaction to Heather when they meet again had me wanting to shake him (but I quickly forgave him). Heather is independent and fell for Chris that night and was crushed when she never heard from him again. The rebuilding of trust between these two was the focus of the story, with Nate and Emily’s wedding as the backdrop., and it does not disappoint. I can’t wait to read more about the Sweet clan especially Chris’s brothers as the brothers had me laughing out loud during the treasure hunt scene.
I give A Wedding in Valentine 4.5 stars. A perfect series for summer reading with just the right amount of sweet romance and attraction heat to keep me interested.
