I love when the second book in a series lives up to the first one, and lucky for us A Fine Romance does just that and then some. My biggest disappointment, we didn’t see nearly as much of the Aisle Bound staff which were such a huge part of book one. However, the romance between our couple was way more physical so in my opinion that made up for it!

A Fine Romance by Christi Barth is her second book in her Aisle Bound series. Having read the first book in this series, I was looking forward to read this book. Christi Barth does not disappoint, as A Fine Romance was another fun romance read, with a wedding planning background. Though this book isn’t really about planning weddings, it has all the characters from the first book play secondary roles, including Ivy, our heroine of Planning for Love. If you have not read the first book, you can st ...more

A love story set in the windy city of Chicago, Illinois, USA. When Mira arrives at O'Hare Airport, her lift stands her up to take care of his mother, who looks perfectly okay to Mira. Livid over being stood up in a crowded airport amid dreadful weather, Mira throws a drink on the hapless Sam. His attempt to deliver an exquisite pastry as a peace offering ends in disaster as Mira nearly beheads him, mistaking him for an intruder. Well, after a fantastic start like that. things can only get better ...more

Anyone who loves stories that include details about various bakery items will no doubt salivate over several aspects of this story, the second in a series. Makes me want to consider getting the first in the series and then wait for the third to become available.

Choclatier-wannabe Sam Lyons has been taking care of his widowed mother since his father died, not realizing his mother no longer needs his help (until he learns she's dating someone!). Next to the bakery is a new store soon to be opened

Cute, sweet and will give you a craving for chocolate. A Fine Romance is another fun read from Christi Barth.

Sam and Mira are twi feisty characters who start off on the wrong foot. It's fun to see them keep trying though. They have some very sweet dates, Sam shows off his talent by bringing over fresh pastries and chocolate. How can you turn that down?! The road blocks to their relationship were the only drawback to the story, but that could be because of compairing them with Ben and Iv

"A Fine Romance" by Christi Barth was a good contemporary romance read was the second in this series... Aisle Bound. You may need to read the first book, Planning For Love to get the full understand of the characters. We find that Mira has moved into a new town with a new job. Sam and Mira will have an explosive first meeting due to their first meeting
A strong contemporary romance. I enjoyed the main characters as well as the secondary. The close-knit group really brought the story together.

Sigh…oh, to own a bakery! Or even better, to live or work next door to one! In Christi Barth’s A Fine Romance, our heroine, Mira Parrish, doesn’t have to pine away for that. Since she agreed to help out her pal Ivy by managing a “romance store” called A Fine Romance, and this new store shares a building with a bakery, Mira gets to live the dream every day! Or would that be torture?

I liked Mira, even though she didn’t like chocolate (gasp!). She’s got a tough co

A Fine Romance is the second book in Christi Barth’s Aisle Bound series. This is essentially a series that follows a group of friends who are somehow involved with a wedding planning business. I love weddings and I love planning stuff so reading a series about wedding planners is fun for me.

This time around we follow Mira and Sam. Sam is the baker extraordinaire that supplies many of the wedding cakes for Aisle Bound (that’s the name of the wedding plan

A Fine Romance is the second book in the Aisle Bound Series from Christi Barth. The book can be read without reading the first book, Planning For Love. However, you might not get the full extent of character relationships without reading the first book.

Mira Parrish is one of Ivy Rhodes’ best friends. Ivy is the heroine in Planning for Love and the owner of Aisle Bound, a wedding consulting company. Ivy is a hopeless romant
