Family businesses are always fraught with conflict and angst, and when your specialty is a couple's special day, then anything and everything can and will inevitably go wrong. But Carina Briscoe is not your ordinary Wedding Event Planner, and her unique talent ensures that those unforeseen glitches are never known by the happy couple, and the stress and pressure is felt only be herself.
So when Carina's only sister decides to flee her nuptials, leaving a church full of well wishers and a business crisis looming, Carina once again goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure nothing ruins the Briscoe Ranch Resort name by tempting fate and the legendary Mistletoe Effect.
The story is wonderfully written with a myriad of interesting characters and a very HOT Cowboy that will not only melt your panties, but your heart as well. I look forward to the next exciting and fun-filled adventure at the Briscoe Ranch Resort.
First of all, the writing captivated me before I had a chance to connect to the characters. Melissa Cutler takes all those words and phrases and weaves a captivating tale, full of style, perfect flow and pacing. A beautifully crafted story.
The story started strong and stayed strong, with a run-a-way bride refusing to marry her intended....in the month before Christmas. Oh, boy. This is a big problem. You see, the story takes place at the Briscoe Ranch Resort, a resort that specializes in destination weddings...especially at Christmas. And there is a legend....The Mistletoe Effect....a legend that claims that for 50 years every single wedding that has taken place in the 25 days before Christmas at the resort has resulted in a lasting and happy marriage. This legend has made the resort famous and the Briscoe family wealthy. And the runaway bride? She's Haylie Briscoe, youngest daughter of TY and Eloise Briscoe, the owners of the resort.
It. Is. A. Disaster!
With the reputation of the family and the resort at stake, elder daughter, Carina, who accidentally caught the bouquet when her sister threw it in a huff, is called upon by her father to step in and save the day. A wedding has been staged and, by gosh, a wedding there will be! It's the 50th anniversary of the resorts big wedding extravaganza and the guests cannot be disappointed! Family tradition and honor must be upheld. Carina objects that there are no men in her life! But James Decker, the best man for the dissolved wedding steps up. He will be the groom, but he has conditions; he wants the "fake marriage" to be real until Christmas.....almost three weeks away. Carina is stunned! A fake marriage to the cowboy stable manager of the resort....the hottest guy with the sexiest Texas drawl she's ever heard....the guy she's had a crush on for ten years? Oh! Hell no. Or...maybe it would be fun, just what she needs for a little distraction from her high pressure job.
That sounds like I've told a lot of the story, but I haven't. That and much more is in the first chapter. The rest of the story is even more fun. Carina and Decker have a very fine, sexy time getting to know each other. Decker learns that Carina has dreams and ambitions that have nothing to do with her demanding job as the event planner for a world renowned wedding destination, dreams that she won't pursue because of her demanding family and her self-less devotion to them. Carina learns that Decker has plans that will take him away from the resort very soon. Together they learn that maybe dreams and plans can change and be better when love enters the picture.
This is a fun read from beginning to end. I think anyone who enjoys a beautiful story will fall in love along with Carina and Decker. I did.
This review appeared first on the blog, It's About The Book
Carina Briscoe is the executive in charge of events. She really dislikes Christmas; her life as she knows it ends on Halloween as the wedding season goes into high gear. This year is especially difficult, one of the brides is her sister Hailey, who is bordering on Bridezilla. Plus, an international wedding magazine is at the resort to take pictures. When Hailey storms out of the wedding and disappears it seems the magic of the mistletoe is jinxed. But, her Dad has a solution.
James Decker, known as Decker arrived at Briscoe Ranch ten years ago as a bad boy cowboy looking for a job. He has worked his way to Manager of the stable and lost his wild and crazy reputation. Nothing has diminished his infatuation/lust for Carina over these past years. They both work ridiculous hours with no time to socialize. When Mr. Briscoe comes up with the solution to stop the jinx....Carina and Decker are "fake" married, he see's a chance to finally have some time with Carina. They will live as husband and wife until December 25th. Carina agrees, partly for the sake of the resort, partly for her attraction to tall, dark and gorgeous Decker. Let the season begin!
The descriptions of the decorations, the food, and the gardens make you feel you are there. The heat between Decker and Carina is sizzling and the characters add so may smiles to the story. If your looking for a Holiday story with lots of romance, laughs and family.......this is the book for you.
I received a copy of this eBook from the publisher for an honest review.
