Editorial Reviews


Oh, my goodness! I haven't had such fun reading a novel in months. If you love romantic stories - if you enjoy romantic comedy - and if you just love a good love story, then have I got a novel for you.

I am a huge fan of Nancy Warren, because she has a masterful skill in writing interesting characters, fun dialogue, and realistic settings. I really connected with Kate and cheered as she grew from a push over to a master of her own destiny. I would recommend this book to fans of chick lit and contemporary romance.

This book was such a fun read! I blasted through the book, enjoying every word on the page! Nancy Warren has started a great series. The cursed wedding dress is the prelude to a story of a runaway bride. Kilts and swords

I thought the premise was pretty cute, but the character development left something to be desired.

I found it a little unbelievable that she would just jump into bed with Nick after what happened. He is hired to test her fidelity and she just decides that "Hey that's okay. He's not really a bad guy with questionable morals. Let's get naked together." The story was cute but that just ruined it a little bit for me.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Almost Wives Club: Kate, by Nancy Warren. It is a quick, fast paced read that completely took over my world from the very first chapter. The synopsis is a real teaser, yet it is only a small part of what this book is truly about.

Kate Winton-Jones is getting married in three weeks to Ted Carnarvon, a very wealthy guy from a very wealthy family. His parents, along with Kate's mother, will do whatever is necessary to ensure that Kate's baggage up until this point is squeaky clean. Kate believes she is happy and as a result of her pedigree upbringing, never questions any of Ted's activities or exploits. Their relationship eventually goes belly-up after Kate's wedding dress is cursed, she loses her job, meets the love of her life and most importantly, finds her true-self.

I loved Kate and the way Ms. Warren evolved her from a people pleaser into a strong, independent woman. Each discovery Kate makes about her life, whether good or bad, makes her an even wiser person. Kate thought she had everything, a loving and faithful fiance, a job for a non-profit that she liked, and a future filled with babies. On paper she and Ted are perfect for each other, however, womanizer and private investigator Nick Mansfield, helps Kate realize what love truly is all about.

Ms. Warren packs a lot of excitement into this love story and I really liked the way she brought about Kate and Nick's relationship. I don't think I will ever forget how Kate felt when she was betrayed by the people who were supposed to care about her most. Overall, this is well-written and interesting romance that twists and turns in all the right places. I am truly looking forward to reading the second book in the series, Second Hand Bride, when it is published next month.

The Almost Wives Club: Kate by Nancy Warren
The Almost Wives Club Series Book One
Kate Winton-Jones is going to get married in a month. When her fiancé leaves the restaurant to go back to work...before their dinner arrives...a rakishly handsome man helps himself to Ted's chair, meal and even conversation. Kate always wanted to please everyone and somewhere in all that pleasing others, she lost herself. One short conversation with a stranger has her rethinking everything. Especially what her life is going to be like being married to Ted...and his family.

Nick Mansfield cannot get the beautiful...engaged...woman out of his mind. There was something about her that stands out more than any other woman he has ever known. And he has known plenty of women. If only she weren't engaged.

Another story that pulls the reader in and doesn't let go. I loved watching Kate change from who others wanted her to be, to who she really was. Loved Nick as well. I'm looking forward to more books in this series.

I LOVED THIS STORY. 5 Stars are not nearly enough. This is such a fun read. The main characters are so sharp in their dialogue and both have a great sense of humor and intelligence.

Kate is about to marry the perfect guy, rich, handsome, a pillar of the community. She has the perfect dress designed by a top designer in California and her mother has picked this special dress out for her. She has everything she could possibly want. BUT, is everything as it appears to be? Kate is not really the person all these planners want her to be,. She is being who they want to make them all happy. Her future father-in-law pulls a really nasty trick on her but she finds out and the other Kate comes out. She handles this beautifully. You have to read it to find out.

Nick is a PI living in Seattle. He was college pals with the prospective groom. He knows things that the other do not but that is not what he was hired for. You will LOVE Nick. He has a great sense of humor, good looking, smart, he really has it going on. He meets Kate and he is a goner but can a guy like him really have a gal like Kate?

This book is witty, romantic, soul searching and just plain fun. I HIGHLY recommend it. I loved it. I started it this evening and it is now 2a.m. I could not put it down, there was no place to just stop. Too much was happening and you have to see what and how the next event takes place. you will love Kate's story. The next in the series will be coming out next month and I really hate that I have to wait. This is a stand alone book even tho there will be 5 women and one dress! Oh and the dress is cursed! Or is it? I can't wit to see who winds up with the dress and what it does for her!!

Decent, fluffy, quick read. You get a lot more character development with Kate than you do with Nick. He's sexy and was a playboy who fell hard, but you don't ever learn much more about him. He does help Kate's character develop, though, which is good. She goes from a pushover to someone who stands up for herself without being cruel, and her transformation is fun to watch. It was a surprisingly well rounded story considering how short it is. I would be interested in the rest of the series but not enough to buy it. Decent, but forgettable.
