Close Friends, a Secret Crush

It was his sister's wedding, but Max Trevetti's eyes weren't focused on the bride.

Growing up in small-town Tobias, Wisconsin, Max helped raise his little sister Annette, and was a surrogate big brother to her best friend, Suzanna Grant. Suz always had a secret crush on her best friend's brother, but she would never have thought Max actually saw her as more than a friend.

Except now Max can't keep his eyes off of her. That stunning red dress. Her smile.

When the wedding celebration leads to unexpected passion, neither knows what happens next ... especially when they're constantly thrown together trying to save historic Bliss House for eccentric, meddling Miss Trudi.

Was it just a fling, or will this wedding plant the seed for their own?

Editorial Reviews

Harriet Klausner
The second chance at love theme of WEDDING OF THE CENTURY showcases Patricia McLinn's ability to tell a compelling story starring a strong cast of characters. The delightful lead protagonists belong together and the mostly charming (except for his snobbish mother) secondary cast provides deep insight into the respective personalities of Annette and Steve.

The Unexpected Wedding Guest by Patricia McLinn Marry Me Series Book Two Suzanna Grant, Suz to her friends, has to decide what to do with her life. Her friend and roommate from college and then business partner, have just sold their business and townhouse. After Annette's wedding—she finds herself staying in Tobias—and near Max. Max Trevetti had to grow up at a young age. Once their father left them in a shabby cabin, he had to become the man of the family and help support his mom and sister. After their mom's death, he had to give up his dreams of college to make sure his sister could have her dreams. Another dream Max gave up long ago was to treat Suz as another kid sister. Protect her. Even from himself. This story continues in some ways from book one; The Wedding of the Century, Max's sister's story. Characters from book one return; Miss Trudi, Nell, Fran, and more. I'm already looking forward to the next book. These stories have been so good from page one to the end. **Sexual content

In Tobias, Wisconsin, Max Trevetti gives away his sister Annette in marriage (see THE WEDDING OF THE CENTURY). Max has mixed emotions as he raised his younger sibling following the death of their mother yet knows her husband Steve is perfect for his little Annette.

At the gala, Max talks with his sister¿s best friend and former business partner Suz Grant. To his shock, he thinks the little girl is beautiful and when she drives him home as he consumed a bit too much alcohol, he cannot stop himself from kissing her. With their successful business recently sold, Suz plans to stay in town awhile until she decides what she wants to do next. As she begins to help Max with his construction business while he recovers from a broken wrist, he falls in love with her, a feeling she has secretly had for him for years. While Suz must persuade her beloved she is an adult, Max must convince himself that he is good for the woman he loves.

The second tale in Patricia McLinn¿s ¿Something Old, Something New¿ is a charming old fashioned contemporary romance that the audience will like because the lead couple are nice everyday people who deserve a loving relationship (like everyone does). Readers will especially be pleased that Max has found love. Several key support players provide the means to understand the motives of the stars, especially that of the male protagonist. Though somewhat simplistic, fans will relax with this warm loving tale.
