I didn't think I would like this book when I first started to read it, however, what I found inside the cover were two really sweet stories about love and devotion. An honest look at people overcoming their natural fears and self doubts to be there for the other person. There was a lot of self sacrifice in both stories. What I loved the most about it was that not only were these individual stories refreshing, but there was the promise of more with the fleshing out of other characters(family members) who also have stories of their own.
According to my Mother who read this book, this book is actually two stories in one. She enjoyed both of them. From the back cover: "The Virgin Groom - He was every kid's idol, every man's envy, every woman's fantasy, and then Mac Macready's fiance' dumped him and his future was looking mighty uncertain. And the most shocking thing of all was that the only woman who could save him was notorious Jewel Whitelaw.."
Sorry to see the story end. Ended like there could be more.
Characters were real and the story lines could have been true.
