A return to the Riviera on the trail of a runaway groom ...

When out-of-work actor Ryan Calder attends a wedding as the plus-one of successful businesswoman, Nadine Wells, he doesn’t expect to get in a scuffle with the groom.

Ryan Calder was Nadine Wells’ plus-one at her best friend Karen’s wedding and although he admired Nadine, this was just his job. When Ryan thought he recognized the groom from a previous wedding, he didn’t know what to do. But in the end, when the groom attempted a quick get away on the back of a motorcycle, Ryan acted. Bruises and a black eye followed for Ryan, but the groom still escaped.

With Jake and Cassie on their side, Nadine and Ryan created a plan to catch the wedding scammer in th

About 3 years ago this author wrote a great summer read starring Cassie and Jake. Ryan also played a rather important role in their story. In my review I begged the author to please, please write a sequel and my prayers have been heard. A few hours ago I finished another wonderful book by her. Cassie and Jake are present, but the focus is on Ryan this time.

I like romance, but not the too sickly sweet kind. A perfect counterpart is adding a dash of suspense, to spice it all up a bit. This is what

How come I have never read this author before now?

It’s another case of me living in a bubble and not taking notice of the world around me, but now I have discovered Evonne Wareham I am definitely on the hunt for more of her books. I loved her cheerful, light-hearted and magical writing, I was certainly hooked with the story the moment I met luscious Ryan…and off course the other character’s, but you know me, I do tend to become somewhat possessive over the heroes, and when they are as drop-dead

“A Wedding on the Riviera” continues the “Riviera” series with a fast-paced, funny, charming story that captured my attention on the first page and held me in its grip until the end. Although you could read this story as a stand-alone title, it does bring back characters from “Summer in San Remo” as secondary characters. This story is not Jake and Cassie’s but they do play a part in the antics, danger, and just plain fun going on with Ryan as the focus this time aroun

Another great read from Evonne! Thank you. This was brilliant. A much needed read with lots of drama, friendship and wedding excitement. The story itself had some great twists and the characters were totally relatable. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The two main characters, Ryan and Nadine attend a wedding. Ryan is an actor (but just hasn't had his big break yet), he works in a bar and also provides a "plus one" service (who happens to be Nadine in this case). The book follows on from Summer in San Re ...more

This book features characters from Summer in San Remo however this book can be read as a standalone (although I would highly recommend the reading the first one as it’s excellent).
Cassie and Jake are in attendance at a wedding of an associate along with Ryan and Nadine, who is being paid by Nadine to be her escort when the Groom does a runner and it turns out he is a scam artist.
As Jake and Cassie run a Private Detective Agency they decide to try and get to the bottom of the scam with the assist

A story that is a brilliant escape from the reality of life!! It has excitement and mystery galore in a beautiful setting and I loved reconnecting with characters from the first in the series, although this can easily be read as a standalone.

Ryan is used to being the plus one at weddings in the line of work that he does! And the more times he spends with Nadine, the harder he finds it to feel a real connection with her and that is really put to the test when they all pull together to try and thw

A Wedding on the Riviera is about a group of friends who are determined to track down and entrap a man who has been defrauding women of lots of money and doing it in a most cruel way – by pretending they are going to be married, then ditching them at the altar. The scene is set for some drama as the friends set up a fake dating profile to try to reel the man in and stop this happening to any more women.

What I enjoyed most about this book was the romance element between two of the characters Ryan

Linked to Summer in San Remo (the main characters of that book are in this one too, as are others) but perfectly readable as a stand-alone, this new story takes the reader from Bath and Bristol to the French Riviera as part of a plan to "con a con artist". Not an easy task, especially as the heroine, who wants nothing more than starting a relationship with the hero, has to pretend to fall in love with the villain they want to bring to justice. I really enjoyed finding out how convincing Nadine ...more

When I first starting reading this book, I didn't realise it was the second in a series but then I kept on reading about an incident that had happened in the past and I twigged. It can easily be read as a standalone though.

I really loved this book!! Very easy to read, main characters very likeable, nice bit of romance without being sleazy – what’s not to love!

Nadine is a lovely woman who lost her husband early and who employs Ryan as her escort for functions and the like. Ryan is an actor who h

Story of Ryan who is a Private Investigator working for Jake McQuire’s company looking into a runaway groom who cons wealthy women by proposing to them and taking large sums of money off them to pay for the wedding. The conman then runs off after the ceremony on the big day along with the money. Nadine is the next mark but she is helping Jake to try and bring him to justice. However, will things go to plan?
Interesting opening with the wedding & the groom running off. Pleased it wasn’t predictabl

This is a glorious mix of crime, romance and friendship. The author has worked all the elements together in a very easy and clever way. It kept me turning the pages and I read this in one go! Just did not want to put it down! Ryan and Nadine are worthy heroes of the romance which goes from UK to France and back. They are backed up by their friends to form a tight group to find the criminal who has been targeting susceptible women. A novel crime but realistically portrayed. Enjoy with a bar or tw ...more

Magical trip to the Riviera drenched in sunshine, romance and mystery.
‘A Wedding on the Riviera’ is a smoking hot romance entangled with an intriguing mystery. The runaway groom hooked me from the outset. An intricately woven plot ensured I escaped to the Riviera, Cardiff, Bristol and Bath. Wonderful writing took me into the heart and soul of Nadine and Ryan and made me yearn for their happiness. I absolutely loved the tension created by the dubious dealing of Thackery. Drama, romance and glamou

When someone scams your friend in the most despicable way, wouldn't you want to dish out revenge and payback on the culprit.

This is exactly what Nadine, Cassie and Jake decide after their friend is deserted by her new husband immediately after the marriage ceremony. The groom runs out of the church, leaving his new bride broken hearted, her bank account emptied and responsible for all the bills of their lavish wedding. The groom is a con artist and makes his living romancing then swindling wome

This really is a great escape. The idea of the story is quite wild but the characters are so warm and have such good relationships with each other that it does not matter, they could do anything and you would want to go with them. I grew up in the Bath/Bristol area and this added to the fun but there is plenty to enjoy if you don't know the area. Who would not want to go the the Riviera just as autumn starts to make wearing a cardigan a good idea! I'm looking forward to reading this again alread ...more

I loved this fast-paced story centred around a wedding on the glamorous Riviera and a runaway groom! I can’t believe I missed reading Summer in San Remo (the first in this fun series) but will be rectifying that soon. It didn’t spoil my enjoyment of this book though as it can easily be read as a standalone story. Everything about the larger than life characters and over the top setting whisked me away from everyday life – the perfect remedy for these trying times!

Another good read from Ms Wareham – a feisty heroine with a hunky hero, a bit of a different story, and some updating on characters we had met before, with an interesting and unexpected little twist at the end. I can’t really say more without giving spoilers, I can only suggest that you read if for yourself! I think you will find it worth the effort, I enjoyed it.

Adored this story! Ryan is an out of work actor, working as a paid escort to rich women. Nadine is one of those women. What happens when he falls for her? Throw in a crooked runaway groom and the romance of the Riviera and you have a perfect mix of adventure and who knows what else! Thoroughly enjoyable story and who wouldn’t fall for the gorgeous Ryan!!

Evocatively written conjuring up the beauty and warmth of the French Riviera while also being intriguing and page turning, capturing my attention and lulling me into its characters as they track down a serial con man who marries women then leaves them at the alter.
