Thank you to Net Galley and the author for allowing me to read this novel in exchange for an honest review.
Where to begin, as I never read the first book of the series, I was fairly impressed with how easy it was to understand the characters and their relationship to one another. I had actually thought this was a standalone novel, and it actually can be read that way, which brings me to the purely well written prose the author displayed in her novel. I am fairly new to Ms. Griep’s work, and this did not disappoint as a well written narrative with engaging characters that must work together to plan for a wedding whilst handling side missions.
It’s absolutely stunning to read a book with characters that balance one another so well and bring out the best in one another. With a perfect balance of mystery, romance, and twists–it makes the reader wonder if these two will make it to the altar at all.
I believe this has been the best romance novel I’ve read so far this year and I gladly and happily bestow it with a 4.5 out 5 stars. Magnificent storytelling Ms. Griep, I hope to be able to read more of our works!
