4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend June 26, 2012
KISS THE BRIDE is one of those stories you start and hate to see finish but at the same time turn the pages so quickly it's soon over. I started this book on Saturday night and finished it on Sunday morning. There are 3 stories in this book, the first one is Deirdre Martin's EARLY BIRD SPECIAL, and is a great story. It's quick, easy to read, fun and will leave you smiling. You will cheer for these characters. I must say I was sad to see the story end. I would have loved to have seen an epilogue telling me how things were going but overall it was well written and engaging. And left me ready to jump right into the next story, Christie Ridgway's WEDDINGS,INK. For me I think WEDDINGS,INK was my favorite story. I have a thing for second chances and this was one of those stories. It was a cute story written really well with characters that had depth and seemed to be a longer story overall. I loved everything about this story from the setting, to the characters, to the pace. It's a wonderful story and leaves you ready to take on the final story in this book, Laura Florand's ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE AND CHOCOLATE. This story is fun, it's sexy and fans of chocolate(um is anyone not a fan?) are going to love it. The story is well written with great characters and leaves you eager to read more from this author.

Overall all three stories will leave you smiling and happy. The authors have written wonderful stories that have great characters. If you are new to any of these authors you'll find stories that will have you eagerly picking up more from them. If you know them already you'll enjoy these quick easy reads. I'd put KISS THE BRIDE on my Beach Reading list, the stories are light and at times will have you laughing. I highly recommend this fun, engaging read to everyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars Three short but sweet stories May 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Three very good stories of women who aren't looking for love but it finds them anyway! Deirdre Martin's "Early Bird Special" tells the story of a retail exec who visits her grandparents in Boca and reluctantly lets them fix her up with a landscaper. Will she take that promotion in Paris? Christie Ridgway writes about Charlotte's business " Wedding Ink" which puts her in close contact with her ex when she is hired to write the vows for the fiance of his brother. Oh, the fiance is also Charlotte's one time step-sister who she did not get along with! The last offering in this anthology is Laura Florand's "Alls Fair in Love and Chocolate" and tells the tale of Eloise, an American food blogger who comes to Paris and meets one of her culinary ideals, chocolatier Simon Cassett. Eloise thinks she is putting one over on the sexy parisian but the surprise is on her.

This trio has sexy hunks, cute and feisty heroines and fun locations. All of the stories are short and very sweet. Martin and Ridgway are favorites of mine already but Florand is new to me. There is a teaser for her new book at the end of this book and I'm definitely going to get it.

I can tell you I don't have a favorite out of these three stories, they were all wonderful and entertaining to read. I'm not going to recount each story because the Book description above tells it quite well.

I can however tell you that each of these stories are unique, fanciful and enchanting to read. This is the right book to bring with you if you are in the mood for a light heartwarming read.

Deirdre Martin weaves a story that makes you laugh while you shake your head at the characters in bewilderment. Character Josh Green was my favorite hero in this book. He's rugged, down to earth and not scared to get dirty.

Christine Ridgway's Charlotte was a riot to read about. Her personality truly jumps out of the pages. I could have continued reading this story for much longer, I was sorry to see it end.

Laura Florand painted a beautiful picture of Paris and all of it's delights in her story. She made me want to be there. Eloise was delightful and a breath of fresh air with her easy ways and formidable imagination. Simon Casset is exactly how you would expect a hot Frenchman to be, debonair and sensual in all the right ways.

You'll really enjoy this book if your into charming characters, entertaining scenes and happily ever afters!
In my opinion this book was well worth reading and it kept me smiling for days.

5 STARS!!!
