Who ’s meddling with happily ever after?
The Wedding: it’s a set up.
The Break-up: it’s a con.
The Reconciliation: it’s a trap.
When high society bride, Samantha Carroll, devises an ingenious plan to ditch her meddling matchmaking mamma’s groom of choice, the banker’s son, instead of the ordinary Irish guy Johnny Belen she’s pining for, all pandemonium breaks loose.
In the meantime, Johnny has devised his own plan to thwart monster-mamma-in-law’s matchmaking for the wedding of the season, but it is soon clear that Sam is not the type of girl who can be scooped up by just any man…
For some, it’s all about the money. For others, it’s all about love.
The prologue had me totally confused. It had read it twice and even then I did not have a clue what is was about. It intrigued me, but I am not very patient. I wanted to get it straight away. That meant only one thing : get cosy on the sofa and full speed ahead.
The first chapter did not make me any wiser. On the contrary, but I don’t give up easily. Little by little, I was rewarded for my persistence. The author took me back to the past and the mist was lifted.
I am sorry, Samantha, but you did not win my prize of the most likeable character. All the brownie points went to Johnny. I really could not agree with what you put him through. It seems you might need a little help on your way to your happy ever after.
Sometimes people talk a lot, but never use the correct words.
In the end, all’s well that ends well and the universe always settles the score.
A story with a mixture of romance, frustration and humour. 3 stars.
