PLANNING FOR LOVE
Readers who are in love with love will be charmed with this book, the first in a planned trilogy. Every page delivers a promise of innocent flirtation, unsuspected romance and tender devotion. Barth is a writer of admirable narrative energy, and her background as a wedding planner makes this book truly believable.
Ivy Rhodes always wanted to be a bride but, with the big 3-0 looming and no prospects in sight, she settles on planning weddings for others instead of daydreaming of her own. She is determined to be a master of her craft, until she meets irresistibly handsome videographer Bennett Westcott. Their amazing one-night stand has Ivy thinking he could be “the one.” But Ben is a commitment-phobe, and her optimistic ideas about love and marriage have him running for the hills. Surprisingly, they bump into each other again and discover they will be working side by side on the set of a wedding reality TV show. Perhaps Ben’s emotions might outweigh his fear of settling down — are those wedding bells ringing? Will Ivy say “I do” or “I don’t” to the man who stomped on her heart? (CARINAPRESS.COM, dl $5.99)
