I loved this book mainly because there was something so charming about the writing. The heroine Elizabeth finds herself practically pushed into a second chance bridal shop and talking with the owner Chessie where she confesses that her boss has just proposed to her, and no they don't have that sort of a relationship, but he is financially stable and doesn't mind her twin sons and is kind of dependent on her, he is a absent-minded writer.

Chessie tells her that she can make her seven year old sons

Good overall.

I enjoyed there was not a lot of drama between Elizabeth and Will. It was nice that the fact that Will being set up to take her out and the fact Elizabeth was considering marrying another man did not come between them at the end and cause problems.

I also enjoyed Elizabeth's twin sons and how Will took to them. Unlike Richard, the writer who offered her a proposition proposal, he connected to the boys and saw them as more than little boys.

Will's bachelor was also didn't cause prob

*** In "Suddenly A Bride", Kasey Michaels puts funny lines in the mouth of a rumpled gentle action-murder-author to use himself for a wacky romantic comedy (makes sense?). I must be susceptible to cute blonde curled twin toddlers such as I once cared for, because I didn't even throw up over them or collie Sam the Dog herding their beginner baseball team. Baseball and soda, rah rah USA. Modern-day rake, aka hotshot lawyer, Will is an oat-sowing bachelor until his cousin introduces him to gorgeous ...more
The heroine is the widowed assistant to a wealthy mystery novelist (he inherited money too, for those wanting more realism). He's proposed, and she's indecisive. She goes to try on wedding dresses to see if that psychs her up to say yes--and the bridal shop owner sends her to a T-ball team for her twin sons, then calls her cousin the coach and tells him to flirt with the heroine. Make her feel feminine again. The hero is a "player" but he really likes the heroine, and weirdly, has fun hanging ou ...more
I found this to be a sweet, slim read, with a romance between grown-ups who (gasp!) acted like grown-ups. The humor was spot on, and Elizabeth was a good-humored, competent mother and assistant, which I always love to see. The children were not annoying (often a pitfall for me) and struck me as realistic. However, I wanted more about the friendship between Elizabeth and Chessie, the clever and friendly fairy godmother of Second Chance Bridal, and I kept thinking, "If this was a Nora Roberts book ...more

Requested this from the library and after I finished I realized that I had bought a copy from the Friends book sale. Not my favorite of her books but I think I'll read the rest of the series.
