Courting Sparks

"Perhaps that was the purpose of the dreaded butt-bow: to protect unsuspecting bridesmaids from being fondled by inebriated guests."



It's been over a year since her old high school sweetheart dumped Daphne and she thinks it's finally time to start dating again.  But being attracted to Noah Banks, her ex's cousin, was not in the plans.  However, in such a small town, it's hard to avoid her friend and seems to be even harder to want to stay just friends.  Noah has been in love with Daphne for forever.  Now that his no-good cousin is out of the picture, perhaps it's time to make a move.  But when Aaron shows up in town again, and with Daphne trying to avoid him - will he get cold feet?  Most of their friends are getting married this summer and with a suspected arsonist out there, who knows how this could all end.

My Opinion: This book was a lot of fun.  I love weddings, so all the weddings were so much fun for me.  I did get a little bit of a eternal bridesmaid vibe - which I think was part of the point.  Daphne is a great character, though a little dense when it comes to love.  She is a great friend though and shows how you can lose confidence after choosing to date a scumbag for a long time.  Noah was a really good character who is adorable though sometimes you want to yell at him to take a chance.  It's a cute story and though a little predictable overall, there are some scenes that you really don't expect that add to the excitement.  Besides, don't we usually know how a romance book is generally going to go?  Really good read.

I received a free copy of this book for review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
