The witty,snappy dialogue and the great characters make this book a huge cut above the usual series romance novel. The bride assignment will also appeal to those who love romance but don't like graphic sex. In fact, this is the first romance I have read in a LONG time that didn't go beyond kissing. But there was none of that horrible teasing that you get in so many romance novels where all the characters think about is sex until your thinking, "Just do it already!!" Instead, this book concentrates on witty conversation and slow developing friendship and romance.
