The bride’s chasing her fairy tale. And he’s chasing the bride…

Not even the bride could deny a certain punch-line quality to her current situation: hard-nosed divorce attorney dumps her fiancé and her career to take a job selling wedding gowns.

Sydney Garfield has always approached relationships rationally—none of this emotional head-over-heels or opposites-attract business. Marrying Jack Kaiser is the smart thing to do—after all, he’ll be the “perfect” husband. But after a life-changing shake-up at work, Sydney abandons logic—and her fiancé—to chase the fairy tale.

Real-estate mogul Jack can’t believe the woman he’s head-over-heels for is ditching her hard-won success—and him—to work as a small-town shop clerk. That’s her idea of a fairy tale? Hoping she’s merely in need of time, Jack follows Sydney to Smizer Mill, where he invests in the quaint coffee shop next door. Now, he’s got a few new challenges: make a failing coffee shop a success and convince Sydney that theirs is a romance worthy of a true happily ever after.

This book reminded me of The Runaway Bride with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere.  I loved the interplay between Sydney and Jack and how even Ginnie (Sydney’s new boss at the wedding dress store) knew that they were right for each other.  It just took getting away from life (in a way) to figure that out.  When I first started reading this book, it seemed hard to get into the book…it might have been the time of day I started (at night) or my mood…but I’m glad I pressed on because I really enjoyed this book and the light-heartedness between the characters.

Overall I give the book 4 paws and do recommend it when you are in the mood for something light.
