I was definitely looking forward for this book to come out; I have enjoyed all of the Weekday Brides series. I will warn that this book may be slightly confusing for people reading it as stand-alone. Even having reading all the previous books, I had to prompt myself a little to remember the backstory of everyone! Rather than being annoying, this has me considering re-reading all the previous books so I am up to date.
Mild amnesia aside, this was a great contemporary romance with a slight suspenseful twist on it. Unlike a pure romance book, the weekday bride series has quality secondary stories that keep a refreshing balance between the love story and something that’s happening outside of the budding relationship. The series tends towards the “too perfect” spectrum, so if you find that annoying this may not be the one for you.
