I am not a romance reader, I dont need or want all that sparks flying,yearning burning stuff. This of course had some of that, but it had a plot, some great characters, a little magic, meddling and mayhem.
Well worth reading for romance lovers and even those who are not romance fans.
A very fun and entertaining romance. I love both Delaney and Nick. Delaney is such a people pleaser (and I understand her, I am similar) and she is marrying because she can't bear to hurt her fiance or her mother. She's already postponed the wedding twice and when she meets Nick and feels the sparks fly (the whammy, I love that term), she knows she shouldn't be getting married.
Nick has been left by his wife on his honeymoon and he's currently off of his undercover detective job due to a knee injury. When his grandmother and her friend Trudie conspire to bring him together with Delaney, they had no idea the passion that would ignite. But is Nick ready for this after being jilted as he was and does he want another man to be jilted the way he was?
The characters in this book felt very real to me and I liked that they never took the completely easy way out. There is also another subplot going on that lends a light suspense to the storyline, but the romance is what shines through here. This was such a feel-good book for me. I loved Nick's family and the stories of his grandmother and grandfather being struck by "the whammy". So much goes into this book and I was actually sad when it ended (not over the ending), but I wanted more of Nick and Delaney and their families. A wonderful start to a series that centers around a "magical" wedding veil - the series is named "Wedding Veil Wishes". I am about to delve into Once Smitten, Twice Shy next and can't wait to get more of Delaney's friends.
1st book I've read by this author and the 1st in this series. I loved it. Had romance, comedy, a little suspense and a lot of attraction. Nick is a great character-afraid to love but unable to resist Delaney. They come from totally different backrounds. Nick's nana and her friend are quite the funny matchmakers. Looking forward to the next.
Book one of Wedding Veil Wishes. Delaney Cartwright is about to marry her childhood friend, when her friends encourage her to spice up their love life by kidnapping him. Only problem is she gets the wrong guy and from the moment she meets Nick there is an electricity she never felt with Nick. Sweet romance. Delaney and Nick are both likable characters.
How about a bride who doesn't want to go through with the wedding and hires a kidnapper to abduct her from the church? Only it's the wrong kidnapper - one she didn't hire. Add a sexy cop to the mixture.
