In Jacobs's third installment in her cream puff Everything But series, Hungarian matriarch Nana Vancy continues to worry about the Salo family wedding curse that's been the family scourge since Nana's groom-to-be inadvertently stood her up at their lavish wedding; two of her three grandchildren have already fallen victim to the same fate, leaving startup developer Dori Salo as the last great hope. But the recently dumped Dori would rather focus on her Erie Hazard Hills housing development than dwell on her lame luck in love. Enter architect Bill Hastings, who puts on airs as Carter Hastings IV to woo Dori into hiring his cousin's interior design firm to work on the development's model homes. Soon, sparks fly and Nana's hopes skyrocket for Dori and Bill. Can a happily ever after be far away, curses be damned? The book is undeniably sugary sweet and light as air, but it has a certain cuteness in its favor. (Dec.)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
Everything But a Weddingby Holly Jacobs
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. Two grandchildren have found love, but not managed to break the curse. Nana's last hope is Dori, who promises to help her break the curse when she marries...if she marries. Okay, so Dori doesn't plan to ever marry. So there's no worry about not being able to keep her promise. Enter Carter William Hastings. He's pretending to be an interior designer in order to help his cousin, CeCe. Who could have predicted that this ruse would end with his developing feelings for the contractor, Dori Salo? But Dori knows him as Bill Hastings--what chance does an ordinary guy like Bill Hastings have with her?
Bill and Dori might figure out that their relationship is more than just business--and might even be love--but will they be able to break Nana's curse?
