"Ginny Baird has crafted a terrific, but short, story. It's a perfect read for an afternoon where you just want to kick back and while away the time with a delightful tidbit." ~ The Romance Reviews

Successful financier Carrie St. John has endured all the romantic disasters she thinks she can in a lifetime. That is, until her fiancé jilts her the weekend of her bridal shower. Carrie can't show up unaccompanied again and admit to her family she's a failure. When Carrie meets Mike Davis at an historic country inn, the recently ditched hottie offers to help fill the bill. But, at what price?

Mike Davis was finally going to prove his old high school buddies wrong. Voted "most likely to remain a bachelor" in his prestigious prep school's class, he was looking forward to ushering in his fiancée at his upcoming reunion. Suddenly empty-handed, he's got a new ploy in mind involving the ultra sexy and accomplished Carrie. But Mike doesn't bank on giving up his heart in the bargain. Neither does Carrie, who is soon to learn there are things that even money can't buy...

THE SOMETIME BRIDE...
Carrie didn't know if the music was still playing, or if it was merely the pulse of her heart that was lending rhythm to her feet. All she knew was that she felt protected, sheltered, and loved. Wholly and unconditionally drawn straight into Mike's warmth. They couldn't have been more connected had they been in bed together. Or maybe they were, and she was dreaming.

Mike reached up and stroked her hair, causing her to melt into him another inch. He'd never peel her off now. Carrie couldn't even say where Mike ended and she began. The only thing she knew for certain was that she never wanted this feeling to stop.

Ms. Baird has been making up stories since she learned to talk, but seems to have become stuck along the wayl. There is an immaturity to her writing with phrases like "swept...like an alligator on the prowl" and "he fishtailed" to describe swimming. Eyes "green as the Caribbean" which is blue. Greek Adonis is redundant. Why would anyone choose to marry the "quientessential ice queen" as Mike's fiancee is described. After meeting Carrie and learning her name Mike wonders about the"mystery woman". When Carrie sees Mike the next morning she calls him Mike as if they're friends and touches his arm when she's supposedly heartbroken. Quite a swift recovery. If you are looking for a well written escape this isn't for you.

A situation that is more effextive in historical or with some reasonable context. Two adults, middle aged professionals despite have enough insecurities to fill a phone book, not really. The insecurities, switching characters between his and hers. No book is short enough for this. I am sorry I gave up.

What is with the words "criminy" and "Oh my Gosh" every other sentence? Characters were completely hollow and did not evoke any emotion. At least it was free....

THE SOMETIME BRIDE Carrie St. John had just tossed her engagement ring in the pool- Wilson had broken it off with her. This book also follows Mike Davis who is diving for his ex fiances ring in the pool and finds not his but somebody elses. They have had their rooms paid for a s a special weekend rate and agree to just console one another and stay the night. He planned to attend a 20th high school reunion and prove the guys wrong that he'd still be a bachelor. With his girl dumping him he'd still be a bachelor. She is to attend her bridal shower that her grandmother and other relatives have put together-for the 2nd time. The last guy had walked out on her also. They come together with other plans and before Mike knows it she's asking his dad to walk her down the aisle for their wedding. He's not sure what to think... They do get to talk about her money and it's the tip of the iceberg-the one thing that can break them up. I received this book from the author as a gift in exchange for my honest review.
