You're invited to a wedding in Whiskey Creek, Heart of the Gold Country
Unfortunately, it's the wrong wedding. Olivia Arnold is arranging the festivities--and it's the hardest thing she's ever done. Because she should be marrying Kyle Houseman. They were together for more than a year.... But her jealous sister, Noelle, stole him away--and now she's pregnant.
All their friends in Whiskey Creek know as well as Olivia does that Kyle's making a mistake. His stepbrother, Brandon, knows it, too. But Kyle's determined to go through with it, for his child's sake.
Olivia's devastated, but surprisingly Brandon--the black sheep of the family--is there to provide comfort and consolation. The intensity between them, both physical and emotional, shows Olivia that maybe Kyle wasn't the right man for her....
But is Brandon?

This was a more interesting story than I expected. The basic plot is pretty over the top: Olivia's narcissistic sister Noelle stole her boyfriend Kyle, got pregnant, and is now insisting on a fabulous wedding; bizarrely, rather than supporting Olivia, her parents have asked her to plan the wedding ...
Really cute quickie, I enjoyed most of it.The characters were fairly one-dimensional, but I didn't expect much character development from such a short story.I was let down by the fact that Noelle never got put in her place. At least not in this book. I would have liked seeing somebody - anybody - gi...
