There Goes the Bride (Runaway Brides #3) by Catherine Mann and Joanne Rock

Book Blurb:

Hair stylist Lindsey Ballard hates answering questions about her family’s country music roots in Nashville. She’s been avoiding music producer, Myles Emery, at all costs, who’s trying to write a book on her famous relative. But he can’t get to her today. It’s her wedding day. Or so she thought…

When Lindsey suddenly needs to call off the ceremony to Atlanta’s popular mayoral candidate, she makes her getaway with the persuasive producer, all the while trying to ignore the chemistry between them that had never existed with her ex.

Myles Emery has his own reasons for needing the truth about a country music legend–secrets the Ballard family keeps closely guarded. But when he happens to catch Lindsey running out on her wedding, he knows his luck is about to change. Too bad Myles wants Lindsey on first sight and the attraction is making it complicated to stay on task. “Uncovering her secrets” begins to take on a whole new, delectable meaning…

My Review:

There Goes The Bride by Catherine Mann and Joanne Rock is a well paced and easy to follow book.

Lindsey and Myles meet in an unusual way and end up spending a lot of time together as he tries to unearth her family secret...  There is chemistry between them, for Myles is was instantaneous.  Lindsey finds herself drawn more and more to this man who makes her feel what she never felt with her former fiancee...but she's just had her life up ended.  I liked how open Myles was with Lindsey.  He never hid who he was or what he wanted.  They connect well, but there is conflict because of what Myles is trying to do.  As he makes his way into Lindsey's life and heart it could end very easily.  Will Lindsey take the chance?

I liked the family dynamics that Catherine and Joanne write about in There Goes The Bride.  Lindsey's family is certainly a unique one, even if at times difficult to understand.  I liked the growth of relationships here, and within this the growth of the characters.  I felt for Sam, Lindsey's sister.

I didn't feel an intense connection to either Lindsey or Miles, and I felt like the story could have used more depth to really get to know them both.  I really would have liked to see more resolution between Lindsey and her former fiancee.  I did like Lindsey and Myles together, the feelings they had and the tension that was inevitable between them made them realistic even as Lindsey struggled with what had happened.  The mystery of the secret and if Myles would figure it out was intriguing.

I'd recommend There Goes The Bride to romance readers looking for a quick, light read.

3/5 stars
