"The Importance of Being Alice" by Katie MacAlister
First in a new series!
"From New York Times bestselling author Katie MacAlister comes a series about finding your own wonderland through one roadblock at a time.... Nothing about Alice Wood’s life is normal right now. Her fiancé, Patrick, called off their wedding and relationship only days before their nonrefundable wedding trip. And though a luxurious European river cruise for one is just what she needs, it’s not what she gets....
Due to a horrible misunderstanding, Alice is now cramped in her romantic” suite with one of Patrick’s friends. Instead of cruising along the Rhine, Main, and Danube rivers sipping champagne with the love of her life, she’s navigating the waters with a strange yet mysteriously handsome British aristocrat.
A baron of dubious wealth and not-so-dubious debt Elliot Ainslie is just looking for some alone time to write the books that keep his large family afloat. But his stodgy, serious self is about to be sidetracked by a woman who seems to have jumped out of the pages of a fairy tale, one who is determined to shake up his life...and include him in her own happily ever after."
What I liked about this novel...
This was a interesting novel where we find a wedding has been called off however, Alice decides to still go on the nonrefundable wedding trip. What will she find there... or is it who will she find on this trip but a strange man who was a 'British aristocrat' named Elliott Ainslie and a friend of her ex. The story will have some real twist and even some humorous parts. What even gets more interesting his when this ex appears and trying to make amends. Will there be a wedding? Wow, this will be a novel to pick up by this author and one I would recommend to you so read to get the outcome of it all.
