Overview

"I loved this book. It reminded me of Nora Roberts' wedding series." — 5 star review for The Wedding Gift 

Lucy Kevin is the "sweet" pen-name of New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Bella Andre (who writes the #1 bestselling series about The Sullivans). Lucy Kevin books are fun, flirty and romantic--without the steamy scenes. 

BOOK DESCRIPTION: After Julie Delgado’s restaurant closes, she temporarily takes over the catering position at the Rose Chalet, a full-service San Francisco wedding venue. She plans to dazzle the bride and groom so the Chalet’s owner will keep her around, but fate has other plans for her when the bride’s brother shows up for the first food tasting. 

Andrew Kyle is not only the Cuisine Channel’s Edgy Eats host and chef, but his recent review of Julie’s restaurant was the final nail in its coffin. Once he meets Julie at the Rose Chalet, he’s certain she’s playing it safe. And he wants nothing more than to be the one to break her guarded passions loose. 

But despite the undeniable sparks between Julie and Andrew–and the fact that he seems to believe in her when no one else does–can she afford to be taking risks with her cooking, with her career…or with her heart? 

THE WEDDING GIFT is the first fun, sweet, and emotional contemporary romance in the Four Weddings and a Fiasco series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Lucy Kevin.

I am the pickiest reader you could ever meet; I have been stuck on my favorite writers/authors for many of years. Bad experiences have made me cautions in adding new authors. Writers like Nora Roberts (JD Robb), Julie Garwood and Catherine Coulter, the hitch is I only read series. I just happen on the Wedding Gift; I wanted to read it because I thought it would be interesting and it was a series (sold). I expected it to be obvious in plot and the characters to be typical. I was pleasantly surprise of Lucy Kevin writing style. The plot was obvious but the writing made it so that you were interested in the outcome of the players. I saw myself as Julie and could picture every scene throughout the book. The book was so well written that I could not put it downs. I am happy to say this book was a great read. You could get lost in the world you are reading and somehow be a part of it. I am not sure how long Lucy Kevin has been writing but I look forward to reading more of her book. I just couldn’t put the book down until I finish. Out of five stars, I give this a 3.5, because it's series and its a book I would read over again.

Picked up this book because the review I read compared Lucy Kevin to Norah Roberts. Unfortunately this couldn't be further from the truth and I can only imagine the reviewer was either a family member or the author herself! The main characters were completely underdeveloped and the speed with which their romance progressed nearly gave me whiplash. The heroine was so riddled with "teen angst" that it was impossible to take her seriously as a lead character. I don't think I've ever met (or read about) an adult female with worse self-esteem. She much more closely resembled a 14 year old girl and I was never remotely convinced she could have owned her own restaurant - even a failing one. Research was also obviously FAR from the author's thoughts as she wrote this. It was readily apparent that the author knows nothing about restaurant ownership or wedding planning, nor did she research either subject to fill in the gaps. First and last novel I will read by this particular author...

This was a nice start to a series, romance but not "over sexed". I really enjoyed the book.

Not fancy by any means, but a sweet story none the less. In a time where money is in short supply, well worth the cost. I'll read the 2nd one when it's released.

I needed something sweet and romantic this week. This was definitely a great read! Can't wait to see what else this author has in mind.

The Wedding gift by Lucy Kevin is a love story that explores how our childhoods can effect our adult lives. The two main characters in the book both have childhoods where they are discouraged from being themselves. They are both encouraged to conform to what their parents think is best for them. One grows up making their own decisions despite the family censure. The other, fearing they really are incapable, goes into adulthood taking no risks and being very unhappy and unfulfilled. The Wedding Gift tells the story of how they meet, how that meeting brings out the best in both of them, the trials they have to go through to find the acceptance and love they never really had before.

What an awesome page turner for us sappy romance readers. I loved every minute of this book. I could not wait to get back to the book everyday at lunch. I ended up finishing the book late into the night. I cannot wait for the 2nd in the series. Lucy wrote a wonderful book that was each to ready, wonderful characters, and at time I felt like I was transported into the book.

I enjoyed this light fiction story. It is entertaining and has a light touch of romance. It is a pleasant surprise to find an author who doesn't feel the need to go into the minute details of love making. Bravo! I am looking forward to the next books in the series and will be looking for other books by Lucy Kevin.

This book is the cutest, most addicting, loving story ever! It was amazingly written and I wanted (and did) read it over and over again! It was romantic, funny, and so darn relatable that it deserves 1000,000,000,000,000,000 stars!
