Synopsis:

Kate is getting married in a month. Richard, her fiancé, is a lawyer: rich, successful, and very good-looking. She’s definitely in love with him.

No doubt about that. So when Sam, a good friend and her high school crush, returns after eight years of travelling, she doesn’t care. After all, he never actually asked her out, and then he went travelling without her, contrary to their plans.

She only agrees to go to dinner with him in order to hear all his news, so why doesn’t she tell him she’s getting married? And is he still bothered by the tragedy eight years ago?

Sometimes life just gets too complicated, and Kate finds she keeps having Very Bad Ideas, which lead to even more complications. Just three days before her wedding, she finds herself in a situation that demands the biggest decision of her life.


Review:

Romantic, heartwarming and laugh-out-loud funny.

This is a charming love triangle about Kate, a spunky young woman in the final days of planning her wedding to the older, workaholic Richard who suddenly finds her world turned upside down when the ruggedly handsome, adventurous Sam returns to town and causes Kate to not only reevaluate her life and her career, but ultimately her happiness.

The writing is smooth and precise. The characters are sweet, quirky and appealing. And the plot is a wonderful blend of humour, familial drama, friendship, love and a little mystery.

I have to say that if you are a fan of well written, fun, lighthearted British chick-lit this is definitely the book for you. And if you haven’t already had a chance to read my review for one of Richey’s other novels Storm Rising, the first book in her NightHawk Series, be sure to check it out Here.

Synopsis:

Frontman of the grunge rock band NightHawk, Gideon Hawk has had enough of the rock star life. He is jaded, disillusioned, and haunted by the memory of an unresolved heartbreak. On a whim, he leaves the band in New York and heads to England in search of answers. 

After attending the funeral of her estranged mother, Abigail Thomson makes a shocking discovery in her parents’ attic. The still-raw memories that surface, along with even more startling discoveries, force Abi to face a devastating truth that leads to a series of life-changing events. She and Gideon must race against time to reclaim the life stolen from them a decade before.


Review:

This is a bittersweet, heartwarming novel that was a delight to read.

This is not just your typical rock star romance. This novel showcases the intricacies of familial relationships, the heartbreak caused by lost love, and the life-changing consequences of lies and deception.

The writing is well done. The characters are empathetic, complex and interesting. And the plot is told from differing perspectives, in a past/present style, that gives depth, understanding, and a smooth flow to the storyline.

This is the first book in the NightHawk Series, and I look forward to reading book #2, Rhythm of Deceit, to find out what happens next.
