Kiss the Bride
By: Jody Wallace
Rating: 4/5 Cogs
Herman Edward Heckley knows all about drywall, concrete, and nail guns. So what's he doing fighting off taffeta in a bridal salon? He's maid of honor for his best friend, Caroline Oakenfeld, in her wedding to a pencil-necked geek. But the closer he gets to the ceremony, the more he wonders if he's been missing out all this time. Caroline has been missing out, and she knows it. Shes been in love with Heck forever, but frittering her life away until Heck wises up isn't part of her life plan. She's agreed to marry her boyfriend so she can move on with her life. But the closer she gets to the ceremony, the more she realizes she has to resolve her feelings for Heck. For better or for worse.
I'm a total fan of "Made of Honor," so I definitely had to pick up a book with a similar pretense. Although Heck's hillbilly attitude occasionally seemed a bit over-the-top stereotypical, I found him to be a kind-hearted hero, and Caroline definitely deserved her sweet man after dealing with her boring and selfish fiance.
Although Caroline's friends were borderline neurotic, they were all so well developed that I felt as if I were with them in the limo at the bachorlette party. Considering how short this book is, I'm a bit surprised at how well fleshed out all the characters are.
The romance is comfortable and sweet, making this a perfect book to read for a light and quick afternoon.
