4.5 Stars This was a pretty funny book for me. Suzanne Hamilton is one of the best event coordinator's in the business, until she is sabotaged. There are a lot of suspects and I went back and forth trying to figure it out. Meanwhile, there's a little love story slowly brewing. There were so many laugh out moments in this book and of course, you are rooting for Susanne the whole way. Duh!!! I will say for those of you who care, there is implicit sex for about 10 of the last 30 pages. Just FYI. It was also pretty funny when Suzanne was trying to figure out why she had dated so many men and still hadn't found the right one. I was sad when the book ended, because, yet again, I did not want to leave these characters. I found the story to be well written, the characters definitely believable and the book fun, entertaining and an enjoyable read. Huge thanks to St. Martin's Press for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review. There's everything you could ask for in this book. Romance, mystery, kidnapping, redneck hillbillies, a celebrity and a gay assistant who is just a hoot. 1 like ·
Is this a novel about the normal and everyday? Nope. Is it still real, captivating, and unputdownable? You betcha! I was introduced to Pullen’s work with the 1st novel in this series and was quite intrigued, but this novel definitely blew that one out of the water. It has love, loss, lust, suspense, family, and friendship all wrapped up in a very intriguing package. The Pullen combines brilliant descriptions, with a solid narrative, and a captivating storyline to create the perfect balance in this will-they-won’t-they romance. I also appreciate the fact that this novel could be read as a standalone. There are a couple of pieces of background information from the first novel in the series that would help to fill in some blanks, but they aren’t necessary to get the full effect of this amazing novel. Character development in this novel is also phenomenal. I enjoy the fact that Pullen doesn’t depend on previous novels in this series to develop the main characters. Every aspect of their lives is developed fully and completely, but in a natural manner. You don’t feel like you’re reading excerpts of a biography, but you do feel like you know the characters. They also battle with real trials and issues. There are never any out of this world encounters, even if some of the issues they deal with are at times extreme. As a whole, I loved this novel. I had enjoyed The Marriage Pact, the first novel in the series, but I absolutely love this one. I can’t wait to read the next novel in the series. Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.
