Vancy doesn't believe in the Salo

Overview

Every Hungarian grandma knows that words have power. Nana Salo never meant the words she said in anger to become a family curse, but that's just what happened. Her granddaughter Vancy is just the newest victim. Vancy's fiance has left her at the altar, and now the press is after a hot grandma-curses-granddaughter's-wedding story.

Vancy doesn't believe in the Salo Family Wedding Curse, but when her groom ditches her and the press is hot on her heels, she's not quite so sure anymore. She's hiding out with Matt Wilde, owner of the Everything Wilde landscaping business, helping out with his two newly-inherited nephews as she figures out what to do.

Matt doesn't believe in curses either, but he seems cursed with thoughts of Vancy Salo that he just can't seem to shake.

A hoard of reporters, a guilty grandma, a gaggle of other family members, and two four-year-olds prone to stealing hearts and wreaking havoc: it's not exactly a classic situation for falling in love...but that's just what may be happening for Vancy and Matt.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Jacobs's latest is a lighter-than-air meringue with little conflict and anemic drama that manages to charm the reader anyway. Vancy Salo is stricken by her Hungarian grandmother's wedding curse, or so she believes after her fiancé leaves her at the last second for a waitress. Soon, Vancy's hounded by the local press, who think the wedding curse story could have the same legs as a recent, popular runaway bride story. At the same time, Matt Wilde, the landscape contractor for Vancy's family's construction business, has just had dumped on him two nephews he didn't know existed. He takes care of them, but the stress of looking after them while both working and searching for their father has him at wit's end. So when he desperately suggests Vancy stay with him until the media attention dies down, she shocks herself and him by agreeing. The rest of the story is predictable in the extreme: without so much as a disagreement or misunderstanding, the burgeoning lovebirds decide to keep their ready-made family. Charming but thin, this book is for those who like their romance light and sweet. (Dec.)
