The Shocking Secret of A Guest at the Wedding (Milllworth Manor #4) by Victoria Alexander
The bride and groom cordially request your presence for a wedding at Millworth Manor. . .
Guests will include Jackson Quincy Graham Channing, New York City banker, and Lady Theodosia "Teddy" Winslow, wedding planner to the finest families in England.
Introductions shall be followed by light conversation, dancing, flirtation, arguing, reconciliation, and an impulsive kiss that both parties are quite certain they will never repeat.
Until they do.
A mutually beneficial fake engagement will be accompanied by all manner of very real complications, scandalous revelations, nefarious schemes, and one inescapable conclusion:
That true love--unlike the perfect wedding--is impossible to plan. . .
Both Lady Theodosia “Teddy” Winslow and Jackson Quincy Graham Channing are people who plan and follow through. At least until they plan and do not. That fact is at the heart of the plot in The Shocking Secret of a Guest at the Wedding. It is a fun romp to follow both Teddy and Jack. Teddy’s life changed with the death of her Father and Jack’s changes when he finds his Father is not dead but very much alive. For Jack that means his whole life plan changes. For Teddy it meant a new plan for her life.
The writing is filled with humor. The characters are fun. (My favorite is Lucy. I really hope she gets her own story.) There is romance through out the book and not just for the two main characters. Sex is at a minimum. I did have to skim thought too many pages. All in all the book is a great addition to the Millworth Manor series.
Zebra published The Shocking Secretof a Guest at the Wedding by Victoria Alexander in 2014.
I received an ARC of The Shocking Secret of a Guest at the Wedding from Netgalley in return for an honest review.
