    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    The first of a four book series entitled THE BRIDESMAID CHRONICLES, Karen Kendall's FIRST DATE starts it off with a bang! To be followed by Kylie Adams with FIRST KISS, continued by Ms. Kendall with FIRST DANCE, and finished up with Julie Kenner and FIRST LOVE, this series is sure to be a hit. <BR/><BR/>Harried and overworked Sydney "Syd" Spinelli isn't at her best when her father demands her to leave Princeton, New Jersey, and come home to South River to evaluate his accounting books. Already angry at having to jump at her father's demands, and worried about the absence of her father's bookkeeper, Betty Lou-not to mention the money that disappeared right along with her-it's no wonder she doesn't take her younger sister's email very well. It seems that Julia, whose always seemed to be the incompetent one, regardless of her job as manager of the smallest hotel in the Marv's Motor Inns motel chain, is in an even greater bind this time-she's getting married to Roman Sonntag, a man she's dated for-gulp!-one entire month. <BR/><BR/>Hightailing it to Fredericksburg, Texas, is the last thing Syd wants to do, but when Julia fails to take her sister's worry seriously via email and telephone, she knows that she's the only one who can make her sister see reason. Being irresponsible is one thing, but ruining your life by marrying a virtual stranger is, most definitely, something else entirely. <BR/><BR/>There's only one problem with Syd's plans-one best man by the name of Alex Kimball. After all, the best man's job is to make sure the wedding goes off without a hitch, right? So there's a redheaded sister-of-the-bride who wants to string him up by his boot heels on his case-Alex is sure he can handle whatever she throws his way. What neither of them bargained for was a red-hot dose of passion that makes Julia and Roman's month-long courtship look like a ten-year engagement. <BR/><BR/>Funny, witty, and sizzling, FIRST DATE is a book sure to tickle your funny bone and zap your romance button. If the following three books in THE BRIDESMAID CHRONICLES are all like this one, you'll need to make room for more books on your keeper shelf.

    Take me to Texas!

    Every time I read one of Karen Kendall¿s books, it is better than the last one! I would normally run like the wind from a series about bridesmaids (IMHO, the stuff of nightmares) but, since Karen wrote it, I gave it a chance--and LOVED it. So much, in fact, that I¿ve already started on First Dance, another of the books in the series. In fact, I¿m trying to figure out how to get Fredericksburg, Texas into my 2006 travel schedule. The womanizing Texas hunk meets Jersey-girl-with-an-attitude romance made me want to two-step with someone in a Stetson hat.

    First Date

    Sure that her sister is making a terrible mistake, Sydney Spinelli is determined to stop her from knowing a man she's known for a month. However, the best man's job has always been to protect the wedding couple from interference, and Alex is indeed the best man for that job. Running interference between Syd and her plans to stop the happy event turns into something that has nothing to do with duty. Whether Alex can convince Syd that her sister and his best friend belong together or not, he wants to convince her that she belongs with him. ........... Lightweight fun that you have come to expect from Karen Kendall is in full force here. If you need a breezy read to while away the summer hours, then this will do so very aptly.

    fine contemporary romance

    In South River, New Jersey Marty demanded his daughter Syd Spinelli drop everything to come home to evaluate his books since his assistant of thirty years Betty Lou Fiotche embezzled money from the Marvs Motor Inn chain. Syd, an accountant, resents her task as she knows Marty can afford to hire a team to do what she is doing for free and that the loot stolen amounts to an insignificant total.--- However, everything at home seems unimportant when her younger sister Julia, who manages the smallest motel in the chain in spite of her seeming incompetence, sends an email announcing she is engaged to a Roman Sonntag. Syd drops everything and quickly heads to Texas to stop her sibling from a disaster. As she interferes with the plans of Julia and Roman, the best friend of her future brother-in-law Alex Kimball tries to preoccupy her. Soon ¿Jersey¿ and the ¿toad¿ begin to fall in love, but he knows he owes her the truth as to why he initially pursued her.--- Big sis Jersey¿s invasion of Texas leads to a fine contemporary romance starring a likable cast. The Toad knows he has much to make up for if he wants to keep his Jersey girl with him, but that is for the next few books to determine how successful Alex is. Syd is a delight although dropping everything to protect an adult from herself seems odd especially since their parents seem numb and dumb. Fans will enjoy the amusing chick lit FIRST DATE between Syd and Alex and look forward to Karen Kendall¿s next step in the Bridesmaid Chronicles FIRST KISS.--- Harriet Klausner
