The latest charming summer romance from best-selling Andrews (Ladies’ Night, 2013) arrives just in time for wedding and beach-reading season. Savannah florist Cara Kryzik is making a name for herself designing society weddings, and her latest event, planning an enormous country wedding between two important southern families, will allow her to pay back the loan her father gave her. Divorced not long ago, she may be ready to finally reopen her heart, and by some sweet chance, local heartthrob Jack Finnerty keeps popping up at her weddings. Though Andrews does rely on a few contemporary-romance conventions—a protagonist with a fun, feminine job; a down-to-earth hero from a well-connected family; and a misunderstanding that nearly keeps them apart—her lively and expansive variations on tried-and-trusted tropes are fresh and pleasing. Readers will cheer Cara on as she deals with a runaway bride and a smarmy and cutthroat competing florist, and all will swoon over her steamy scenes with Jack, right up to the wholly satisfying happy ending.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The latest from perennial blockbuster novelist Andrews launches with a 250,000 print run and a high tide of national promotions in print and on all other media platforms. --Aleksandra Walker
“Delicious...Laugh-out loud humor, overwrought bridezillas and a runaway puppy...an absolute delight!” ―AARP

Our main character, Cara, is newly divorced from a marriage that brought her south to Savannah and an outsider in a town with well entrenched social circles. She is struggling to get a flower shop she 'inherited' into the black, and along the way has to deal with the types of catastrophes that small businesses face, but does it with aplomb. Naturally, she meets a man under unfavorable circumstances that are bristly and provide the foundation for the romantic tension that we love from MKA. Cara's life goes through twists and turns to keep the reader engaged and the characters are fun to hang around with - as always, the pages fly by and before you know it, you're anxiously awaiting MKA's next book.
I also liked Jack quite a lot BUT his character didn't ring true. He is portrayed as intelligent, but some of the things he does (the cash in the sock drawer, the lack of abilities in dealing with his old live-in, and his deal for the shop) don't follow through for me.
I loved the low-country setting and the florist/wedding planner plot was interesting and brought lots of characters into play.
This book is a good summer read. Hopefully the next MKA book will be more like Little Bitty Lies, which is my favorite!
