I started reading Trouble at the Wedding by Laura Lee Guhrke expecting it to be just another historical romance – a genre a love, but one that can be occasionally predictable. Boy, was I wrong! It stands on its own unique merits, and had me hooked from the very beginning.

I really enjoyed it, and couldn’t put it down once I started it. I only found out it was part of a series after I finished it, so can definitely attest that it stands alone quite nicely.

When I met the heroine, I really liked her, and enjoyed finding out what type of person she was. The author introduced me to her seamlessly, with a well written description of her past, her plans for the future, etc., all neatly integrated into the story.

Then I met the hero, and loved him from the start. He was a well defined character, completely three dimensional and perfect for the heroine – if only they both realized that!

As the plot unfolded, I kept thinking I knew what would happen, but each time I was pleasantly surprised. The story line was extremely clever and there were lots of unexpected occurrences as it went on.

The story showed a lot of the good in human nature, but also the bad. This was important to the story and really made the plot deeper than many romances.

There are a couple of erotic scenes that were not just thrown in for impact or to titilate, but were extremely important to the plot and were very tastefully written.

I have to say that I really loved this story, far more than I was expecting to. It was interesting, exciting, and fun reading from the beginning to the end.
