A little lie leads to delicious complications in the latest Cricket Creek romance from the USA Today bestselling author of Written in the Stars.
Heartbroken handyman Avery Dean can’t get away from his ex—who just happens to be the maid of honor in his sister’s upcoming wedding. As the best man, Avery has to grin and bear his sister’s misguided attempts to get them back together, until the perfect excuse presents itself in a pretty out-of-towner.
With her time in Cricket Creek, Kentucky, coming to an end, hair stylist Sophia Gordon can’t deny the town’s charms, or her attraction to Avery Dean. That’s why she finds herself saying yes to dinner, and then, a wedding date.
Sophia agrees to be Avery’s pretend girlfriend until the big day is over, but when their make-believe fling shows signs of real passion, Sophia starts to wonder if staying in Cricket Creek could make all her wishes come true.

Wish Upon A Wedding By Luann McLane is another wonderful story in her Cricket Creek series. Local handyman Avery Dean just can’t seem to get away from his ex. It doesn’t help matters that she is the maid of honor in his sisters wedding. But Avery loves his sister so he will keep a smile on his face and muddle through it. Avery comes up with the perfect plan to convince everyone he has moved on by pretending to date newcomer Sophia Gordon. Sophia Gordon originally was only going to stay in town to help out her family. The small town charm is really growing on her. Plus she is wildly attracted to Avery Dean. When he suggest a pretend relationship, what could possible go wrong? Spending so much time together during the pre wedding festivities as Sophia and Avery giving into their mutual attraction. Will Avery be able to convince Sophia to make Cricket Creek her permanent home? I just love this series, its so fun and sexy and delightful. I love how there is a secondary romance with a bit more mature characters. Avery and Sophia are a dream come true couple. Looking forward for the next book.

Wish Upon a Wedding by LuAnn McLane is the 10th book in her wonderful Cricket Creek series. I am a big fan of this series by McLane. In each and every book, she manages to give us another sweet romance; a great couple, and spending time with those we have grown to love in Cricket Creek. Sophia Gordon is due to leave Cricket Creek to return to NY, but after enjoying the small town atmosphere, seeing her family settle there, and the friends she found has caused her to have second thoughts. Avery Dean is our hero, who recently broke up with his fiancée, who had cheated on him. To get his sister Zoe off his back, he and Sophia, who have become friends, devise a plan to pretend to be dating, so his ex leaves him alone. Best laid plans; as usual do not always work out. Sophia was a great heroine, always fun and likable, except when talking to Avery’s ex, Ashley. Sophia will decide to stay in Cricket Creek, as she will go into business with her friend Carrie Ann, opening a salon, White Laces and Promises, on Wedding Row. Carrie Ann also has a new romance quickly building with Avery’s uncle Easton. Slowly, both Avery and Sophia begin realize that their pretend relationship has become real. With Zoe and Max’s upcoming wedding, Ashley is part of the wedding party, as is Avery, and the misguided attempts by Zoe (who doesn’t know the real reason about his breakup with Ashley), will make things uncomfortable. Will Sophia be able to stop the attempts by Ashley to win Avery back? Will Avery get past his fears of being hurt again? This was a double sweet story of two wonderful romances. The extra added fun of seeing our previous couples in Cricket Creek always makes this a pleasure to read. I loved both Avery and Sophia, as they made a fun, likable, sweet and sexy couple. The older couple, Carrie Ann and Easton was also very well done. Once again, I had fun in Cricket Creek, and think it’s time you meet these wonderful people, in case you haven’t done so yet. Looking forward to visiting Cricket Creek again soon. If you love sweet small town romances, you can never go wrong reading anything by LuAnn McLane.

Mix the tried-and-true premise of the fake wedding date with sweet, Southern charm, and you’ve got Wish Upon a Wedding by Luann McLane. Unbeknownst to me, this is book 10 in McLane’s Cricket Creek series. I will definitely be checking out the previous books! Not being invested in the series or the characters, I found the beginning of the book a little slow, however, once I got a feel for the characters, I was engaged in the story. McLane has created a charming small town and filled it with quintessential Southerners. I liked almost all the characters. I say almost, because Ashley, the conniving ex-girlfriend, is one of those characters you just love to hate. She uses saccharine-sweet Southern double entendres and not-so-subtle bullying to push Sophia out of the picture. You can probably guess that Ashley is the primary antagonist in the story. Thankfully, smart, thoughtful Sophia is not a total pushover. She and Avery have genuine chemistry, and you just know they are meant to be together! I particularly enjoyed Carrie Ann and Easton; individually they’re great characters, and together they’re a sweet couple. Their later-in-life romance is a treat. “You sure know how to kiss a woman, Easton Fisher.” “No, not any woman…only you” --Carrie Ann & Easton There is a large cast of secondary characters that have probably been introduced in prior books. I didn’t have a solid feel for all of them, but there is a strong sense of a cohesive community and family. There are a couple scenes that embody that feeling. I loved the heart-to-heart conversation between Max and Avery at the bachelor-party weekend. Even though it is meant to be Max’s wild weekend, his sentimental advice to his best friend Avery is all about deserving true love and happiness. “You deserve happiness. So start thinking about your own life, for once.” --Max Avery gets a lot of advice that weekend—even his usually grumpy father gets in on setting things right when he “coincidentally” comes to Avery’s rescue with a ride home. “How’d you get so smart?” “Years of bein’ stupid. I got all those years of doin’ things wrong out of the way…” --Avery & his dad Wish Upon a Wedding is filled with sweet Southern charm, sexy fun, and a few heart-tugging, emotional moments. The leisurely pace mirrors that of the South on a hot summer day—there’s no rush to get somewhere, and you’ll enjoy every moment of the journey. Grab yourself a glass of sweet tea and settle in with this sweet romance.
