A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

A Wedding in Wild Harbor by Grace Worthington: Book Review

 **I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

She needs a hero to save her beloved bookshop. He needs a girlfriend to satisfy his mother’s dying wish.
Can this grump and sunshine couple work out the perfect deal for a happily ever after?

If Cassidy Woods could make one dream come true, it would be to save her struggling bookshop from closing its doors. So when a wealthy investor announces he is shutting down her store, Cassidy will do anything to change his mind, including becoming his girlfriend.

Liam Henry is running out of time. His mother’s final wish is that he’d meet the girl of his dreams before it’s too late. But Liam doesn’t stand a chance without some kind of help. No woman can see past his grumpy exterior to discover if he has a beating heart under his designer suit.

When his mother advertises his search for a girlfriend, Liam makes the best and worst plan of his life: ask Cassidy to become his fake girlfriend. Too bad she’s his gorgeous employee who’s about to get axed from her job.

Cassidy’s sunshine is the perfect opposite to his grump, forcing Liam to make an outrageous trade-off he’s destined to regret.

Now everybody’s happy, except the mismatched couple who are headed toward a bumpy road that unravels every tightly constructed argument they’ve put up against love.

In the end, only one of them can win.

When they’re thrown together in a race against time, will a plot twist they didn’t see coming ruin everything? Or will they discover that in fooling everyone, the only person who’s fallen for it is themselves?

A Wedding in Wild Harbor is the fifth book in the Wild Harbor Beach series. I had personally only read one other book in the series, and found it reads well as a standalone. You can certainly tell it is part of a series, as we see characters previously introduced make appearances that are clearly not their first... but I didn't feel lost or that I was missing any information crucial to the primary story in this book. 

Grumpy boss with plans to shut down a failing bookstore, but ends up falling for the only employee... well, it certainly sounds like something straight off a Hallmark movie, but I absolutely adored it and found this one was done quite well. Liam and Cassidy made such an interesting couple. Liam admittedly was not the most likeable character in the beginning... he most certainly was quite the grump. Still, that made watching his softening throughout the story all the better. The romance between these two was sweet, and I loved their happily ever after. The story was full of heart, but it also had a good deal of humor as well, which I very much enjoyed. 

Overall, I found this to be a really sweet romantic read, and one that fans of Hallmark-like love stories is sure to want to experience for themselves.
