The theme is a Christmas Eve wedding at Lake Placid, but as
we know the best laid plans oft go astray! Three authors
have each contributed a story to this warm compilation
about the wedding. In WINTER WEDDING BELLS there is
a treat in store.
THE KISS by Karen Rock is the first part; I enjoy Karen
made the book a must-read. Julie Barrett is
having her final fitting, sticking to her diet and hoping
nothing else will go wrong. Her bridesmaid has missed her
flight. The snowy Adirondacks make a perfect setting, but
she's feeling a few last-minute jitters. She's going to be
a doctor's wife, like her mother. Nothing wrong with that.
Maybe nothing heart-stoppingly passionate, but Mason is a
good man. As they prepare for a charity run, she bumps into
a past boyfriend, Austin, now a globe-trotting sports
medic. Is she imagining it or is there still a spark
THE WISH by Kristin Rolofson takes up the tale after some
dramatic news. The managers of the resort have their own
lives, partly on hold at this season. Patsy and Grace
discuss their family and friends, and the guests of course.
Grace is quite nervous of Nico the temperamental chef, and
she doesn't want to be the one to give him bad news about a
meal, but there's no way out of it. Nico's more than just a
flirt where Grace is concerned, but she doesn't know how
kind he can be.
THE PROMISE by Jennifer Snow continues the thread as Alexis
the missing bridesmaid arrives, meeting the other guests
enjoying the activities. She's a successful lawyer and
can't understand how meeting the bride's cousin Liam still
makes her tongue-tied. Surely she's grown out of that
crush, and it's not as if he ever noticed her when they
were kids. There's more on her mind though - she's got a
wedding to save, or should it fade away like the mist?
Luge sled rides, ice skating, cold air, hot drinks, a
snowstorm and the Jingle Bell Run around the icy lake. I
really enjoyed this family-friendly romance particularly as
the interesting occupations were described and the
hospitality staff had their own tale. These people work
hard to make a happy holiday for others. I recommend all
the tales in WINTER WEDDING BELLS for romance lovers this
