The Belshaw brothers are back in Balkissoch...
Bridie Porter is wearing her Vera Wang gown and veil in the back of her wedding limo when she receives a compromising text about her hotelier groom. Panicked, she tells the driver to keep going and she flees from Melbourne to the small town of Balkissoch in the Adelaide Hills.
It's the perfect pit–stop to hide from her ex and the press and to earn enough cash to stay out of sight. Unfortunately, the admin job she gets is for a wedding photography business and she's had her fill of weddings lately. But it's slim pickings on the work front in a town so teeny. And her new boss is strangely compelling...
After the rush and adrenaline of his job as an LA paparazzo, the last place Cody Belshaw wants to be is back in the small town where he grew up. But thanks to a clause in his father's will that amounts to blackmail, Cody and his two brothers are stuck running a wedding business for at least a month. If there's one thing that he's learned in LA, however, it's to keep business and pleasure very, very separate. Which makes his new admin employee the definition of temptation.
Bridie is desperate to stay anonymous. Cody seeks out secrets for a living. As they delve into the world of brides, boutonnières and dogs–as–best–men, both Cody and Bridie will have to decide if this is a fling...or forever.

Birdie got a pic of her fiance that wasn’t very nice on the wedding day Birdie then goes on the run. Her ex fiance was a multimillionaire hotelier and the media was going crazy with the story of Birdie the runaway bride and they were all looking to get a pic of Birdie the runaway bride.” . When Birdie ran she left her job, her family, her friends behind. Birdie ran to a small town and gets a job at Goldlake Manor as a marketing director/receptionist for a wedding venue. There are a set of triplets who are running the venue and have to keep it going for a month per their dad’s will or it would become a dog kennel. The triplets were Cody, Vance, and Jaxon. Cody is actually a LA Paparazzi and couldn’t wait to get back. Of course Birdie is attracted to Cody who could blow her cover and they start seeing each other but did so in secret. This was a good story and I really enjoyed it. This had a good plot and had great writing. It was a short story but did not lack anything. This made me chuckle at times. I did find the end predictable but still enjoyed it. I loved the characters and the ins and outs and I recommend.
