Winter Wedding Bells

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 Rock's writing so that 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 between them?

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 Christmas.
