It seems like everyone is going on vacation or just taking time off and looking for a book recommendation. I thought I'd highlight a few of my recommendations in case you're looking for a book but don't want to wade through the entire blog to find one that strikes your fancy.
Here are a few suggestions for romantic comedies. Love movies like Runaway Bride, The Wedding Planner, The Proposal, Sleepless in Seattle? You'll probably like these!
Kissing the wrong guy days before her scheduled wedding leads Allison to become a runaway bride. But can it also lead to happily ever after?
Denman is supposed to get married in five days, but everything is all
wrong. The huge wedding. The frothy dress. And the groom.
Still, kissing the groom’s brother, Daniel, in an unguarded moment is decidedly not the
right thing to do. How could she have made such a mistake? It seems
Allison’s life is nothing but mistakes at this point. Daniel’s
adventures—chronicled through a collection of postcards—have always
appealed to Allison’s well-hidden desire for something more. But how can
betraying her fiancé’s trust lead to a true happily ever after?
Allison find her way out of this mess? Recognizing she doesn’t have all
the answers won’t be easy because she’s used to being in control. To
find her way again, she will have to believe that God has a plan for
her—one outside her carefully defined comfort zone—and find the strength
to let Him lead.
Kate Donovan is burned out on work, worn down by her dating
relationships, and in need of an adventure. When her grandmother asks
her to accompany her to Redbud, Pennsylvania, to restore the grand old
house she grew up in, Kate jumps at the chance.
Upon her arrival in Redbud, Kate meets Matt Jarreau, the man hired to
renovate the house. Kate can't help being attracted to him, drawn by
both his good looks and something else she can't quite put her finger
on. He's clearly wounded—hiding from people, from God, and from his
past. Yet Kate sets her stubborn heart on bringing him out of the dark
and back into the light... whether he likes it or not.
When the stilted, uncomfortable interactions between Kate and Matt
slowly shift into something more, is God finally answering the longing
of her heart? Or will Kate be required to give up more than she ever
Emma Rae Creations series by Sandra D. Bricker
36-year-old Emma Rae Travis has been baking specialty cakes and
melt-in-your-mouth pastries at The Backstreet Bakery in historic
Roswell, just outside of Atlanta, for the last six years. But here s the
rub about her job as a baker ... Emma is diabetic. When she tastes her
creations, it can only be in the most minute portions. Emma is
considered an artisan for the stunning creme brulee wedding cake that
won her the Passionate Palette Award last year, but she s never even had
one full slice of it. When Jackson Drake hears about this local baker
who has won a prestigious award for her wedding cake artistry, he tells
his assistant to be sure and include her in the pastry tastings
scheduled at his new wedding destination hotel the following week. And
for Jackson, that particular day has started out badly with two workmen
trapped in a broken elevator and a delivery of several dozen
300-thread-count bed linens in the wrong size abandoned in the lobby.
But when the arrogant baker he met a week prior in Roswell stumbles into
the dining room with a platter of pastries and a bucketful of orders,
he knows for certain: It s going to be a really rotten day. Can these
two ill-suited players master the high-wire act and make a go of their
new business venture? Or will they take each other crashing downward,
without a net? And will the surprise wedding at The Tanglewood be
As a wedding planner, Sherilyn Caine should have the perfect wedding

smoothly, her own wedding plans start to sink right before her eyes. One
way or the other, Sherilyn is determined to make this wedding
work—until the latest development threatens to call the whole thing off.
Is it possible that Sherilyn is allergic to her fiancé?
