Cindi owns a bridal boutique in Atlanta, and wants to sell it because her parents are splitting up and she no longer wants to help plan weddings that just won't last. The boy who broke her heart in high school, Jeremy, is back in town and wants to buy it.
The story relies on the soap opera technique that just repeats the same thing over and over. The author doesn't dig into the characters, but creates shallow puppets who bounce around with a smile on their face and perky, shallow remarks. While the story takes place in a city that is full of heritage and history, absolutely nothing about the town is shared with the reader except for a light mention of Peachtree street. Gee, that nails the location down, doesn't it?
If you want a light, shallow read that won't challenge your beliefs or teach you anything at all, this is just the book for you. If, however, you want characters that actually live, breathe and feel, and are well motivated and complex, a much better bet is Stars Shine After Dark by Paula Hrbacek.

What drew me to this book was the beautiful cover. Cindi owns a bridal shop and loves helping brides make their perfect day come true. Sadly, as her own parents are divorcing she grows disillusioned with love and she decides to sell. A prospective customer comes along and is interested, is it really Cindi's high school boyfriend? What exactly is he interested in? Can Cindi trust his motives? **** (4 stars) for being a fun romance that makes you sigh...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
