  Library Journal Review

Savannah is filled with plenty of high society brides-to-be, but for newcomer florist Cara Kryzik, the right bride in the right circles could make or break her career. Cara strives to rebuild her life in Savannah after her divorce, ironically working mostly with weddings. Her luck changes when Brooke Trapnell and her wealthy fiance Harris Strayhorn book Cara as their florist and wedding planner. If this event goes off perfectly, she will have enough money to repay her father and make necessary improvements to her shop. Unfortunately, big-shot florist Cullen Kane wishes to do this wedding, too, and he'll stop at nothing to get what he wants. Meanwhile, Cara meets handsome Jack Finnerty, a local contractor who mistakes her dog for his own. Now Cara is charged with pulling off the wedding of the season, fighting the competition, and maintaining her relationship with Jack, despite her trust issues with men. VERDICT Andrews (Ladies' Night) has written the perfect beach read with plenty of humor, romance, and a little mystery. Don't let the size of the book turn you away; it's a very quick and entertaining novel. [See Prepub Alert, 11/18/13.]-Brooke Bolton, North Manchester P.L., IN (c) Copyright 2014.

  Publishers Weekly Review

Cara Kryzik, a transplant from Ohio to Savannah, Ga., is struggling to make a go of it at her floral design business. Everything is going wrong: her shop's cooler conks out, ruining thousands of dollars worth of elaborate flower arrangements and leaving her with nothing for the huge wedding she's doing the next day; her father is demanding that she repay the money he lent her to open the shop or he'll shut it down; her landlady decides to sell the building without telling her-and wants to sell it to Cara's biggest competitor; and then there's handsome-but-exasperating contractor Jack Finnerty, whom she meets when he accidentally steals her dog. Narrator McInerney reads in a lively tone, bringing both empathy and humor to Cara's tumultuous life. She flawlessly delivers fun character voices, from the elderly landlady's crotchety "get off my lawn"-style sniping to Jack's sexy "aw shucks, ma'am" Southern drawl. This entertaining chick lit/romance novel is perfect for a lazy summer listen at the beach. A St. Martin's hardcover. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
