There Goes the Bride (Wedding Veil Wishes Series #1) by Lori Wilde

Legend claims this antique Irish wedding veil can grant your heart's deepest desire. But be careful what you wish for...
The moment Texas socialite Delaney Cartwright touches the veil, she knows she can't go through with her wedding. And it's not just because she envisions a stranger's dark eyes and irresistible lips the second her fingers hit lace. But she can't simply call the whole thing off. The nuptials to her nice, predictable childhood friend are the social event of the season (not to mention that her mother would freak). To fan the flames of this dying ember, Delaney abducts her fiance for a night of passion...and grabs the wrong guy! It isn't her fault that Detective Nick Vinetti of the oddly familiar eyes and lips has crossed her path--and looks game for all kinds of sexy fun.
Now Delaney hatches an outrageous plan to get out of marrying: she'll hire her own kidnapper. With an altar to avoid and a cop to dream of, this runaway bride is hoping a little Irish magic will unveil the true destiny of her heart.

The is the frist book that I have read of her's and I couldn't wait to read the second. She wrote like she had been in that character's shoes and did a wonderful job of relaying the feelings in words. She had my heart aching for the twisted love as it unfolded. By using the ghost, she created a unique way of showing the enter termoil that the charater was going through and how she was battling it out in her dreams. I will be shopping for her other books outside this series too.

There goes the Bride is a wonderful, witty, fast-paced and delightful read. Tinted with just a tad bit of suspense, this book grabs your attention on page one and doesn't let go until the ending. Don't miss this one!

What a wonderful, heart warming story. The characters are vivid, the style smooth. I loved getting to know Nick and Delaney and seeing them grow as a couple. The humor is poignant and fun too.

I thought this book was great. I like a build up in my story and this had 2 great build ups. Very quick read would pass on to a friend.

I thought the characters were amazing and was pulling for Delaney throughout the book. She is great! I thought the scenes with her dead sister were weird; didn't like those at all. I would have liked more from Nick's point of view because I felt he was such a strong character. At times the book was long winded, drawing out scenes and thought processes of the characters longer than I felt they needed to be to get the point across. I also didn't like how abrupt the ending felt (not the Epilogue, the ending of the last chapter). In a word, this book was "OK".

I read the books backward and read once smitten and twice shy first so I had high hopes for this book. It was just ok, not super exciting and didn't hold my interest as well. Didn't have the great sparks her other book had.

If you like strong female characters, skip this book completely. The 'heroine' of this novel is extremely indecisive and the conversations with the dead sister were just weird (they would have been easier to swallow if she had been a ghost - instead the sister is merely a figment of the main character's imagination...). Any character who needs to resort to hiring someone to kidnap her in order to avoid her own wedding needs to grow up and get a backbone. The whole book was absurd and very annoying. Don't waste your money!

In Houston the upcoming marriage between Delaney Cartwright and her fiancé orthopedic surgeon Dr. Evan van Zandt makes all of the societal pages of newspapers and magazines. However, the bride has doubts although she admits her fiancé is a nice likable person she wants sparks and there are none. She even agreed to his suggestion no sex until they marry because she does not expect to miss it at least with Evan.--------------- Delaney stops at a consignment shop that sells wedding attire there she buys a veil that seems to be calling to her and makes a wish to get out of her nuptials. Her friends persuade her to abduct Evan and have her way with him. Instead she almost kidnaps Evan¿s patient, undercover Detective Dominic Vanetti, whom she has seen in a vision when she first touched the veil. Still her plan now is to hire someone to abduct her so she does not have to say I do, but someone else has the same agenda with a different outcome.------------------ THERE GOES THE BRIDE is a Wilde madcap contemporary romance with paranormal elements. Delaney is a nice person that readers will not initially respect because of her fear of behaving wrongly in the eyes of her societal mother. That includes avoiding telling her she does not want to wed Evan this leads to her concocting this maniacal scheme even as she knows her fiancé is a kind person deserving better treatment from her.. Ironically her plot becomes real with the cause inadvertently being the prime reason her mother demanded proper behavior from her, her late older sister and her father.-------------- Harriet Klausner
