Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
This was a short read that picked up where we left off on Easter Holiday, another book by Dixon, so we meet up with some of the same characters we had been introduced to before. There was laughter, family, good friends and a wedding to plan and look forward to. There was also some unexpected romance, mixed signals and a happily ever after that didn’t look like it would happen.
Once again the book ended abruptly on page 54 when the e-reader showed 66 pages and I thought I still had a ways to go. I didn’t need to read an excerpt of another book when I felt there was more story to tell in this one. I will read the other books set in New Bay just to see how the story continues but this easily could have been longer to better develop the storyline which did have a lot of promise and would have given better closure.

It’s that time. Time for Emma to do her duty to her brother and his fiance by standing up for them at their wedding. It’s a wonderful thing that Emma is thrilled to be a part of – mostly.
The problem is the best man. The best man so can’t have a conversation with her without tripping over her, spilling something on her, or somehow completely throwing her off balance. How can they possibly spend the entire evening together muchless make it through the dance they must share?
Well, practice makes perfect — and moonlight dancing is quite romantic.
What I liked: I really loved the beginning, at first it seemed like it would be the most romantic of the novella series. Even the end was adorably romantic. It’s definitely a perfect ending.
What I didn’t like: It just felt rushed in places. I think that this novella could (should) have been made into a complete story on it’s own — goodness, I’ve read series that weren’t as fleshed out
