From Wall Street Journal and USA TODAY bestselling author Natasha Madison comes a brand new stand-alone a small town, second chance romance.
Are you ready for The Southern Wedding Series?
Things are supposed to go smoothly on your wedding day.
I promised him I would be there for the best day of his life.
Not thinking I wouldn’t be the one standing next to him.
But here I was attending the love of my life’s wedding day.
I smiled when I saw him and pushed back the tears that wanted to come out.
This was his day and I was going to fulfill my promise.
It was supposed to be the best day of my life.
But the second I got up, things started to fall apart.
The kitchen just caught on fire.
Flowers were from a funeral.
My bride-to-be just had an allergic reaction leaving by ambulance.
Oh and my ex-girlfriend just walked into the church.
They say you have to see the signs when they are right in front of you.
Maybe she was just mine to have.

First things first, that cover. That dress. This is one of those books that draw you in from literally the first time you see it.
I know, you aren't supposed to judge a book by its cover, but in this case the perfection of the cover perfectly represents what you find when you open the book.
Harlow and Travis, as you know if you read the prequel (and if you didn't, start there) were a couple in college, right up until Travis decides to be an idiot (as men can) and make a decision that's better for Harlow without actually discussing it with her (as men do).
So, yeah. Your impression of Travis is that he's kind of an idiot. But you still feel a little sorry for him, as that wedding day (to the wrong woman so you don't actually want it to go well) is... Not good. At least as far as weddings go. You get an idea in the blurb, but reading it, well, it's the stuff of nightmares and every anxiety dream every bride has about things that could go wrong.
And then, right when everything really starts to fall apart at the wedding, Travis realizes the one who should be with him for his happiest day is there...but as a guest. You get the significance of this, but if you have read the prologue it really makes sense, so really, read it first. And that's the first time this book really gets you in the heart and makes you want this couple to work out, even if you are still a little annoyed with Travis.
The disaster of a wedding is also a really well done way of introducing the reader to the other players in the story, and the characters who are featured in the next books. Titles that are the 1st in a series can sometimes lose some of the focus on the main character because they are too focused on introducing everyone, but that didn't happen here.
The central characters work well together and it's a connection that you both believe and believe would still be there. The pacing is strong with the development of the new relationship balanced well between relying on the past and also forming new connections.
The only issue I have with this one is that I have to wait until JULY to read the next one. And I promise, you are going to want to read the next one immediately.
Meet Natasha Madison
When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...
