"To Have and To Hold" by Lauren Layne
After what had happened to Brooke Baldwin as she starts a new life in NY being a wedding planner working for Wedding Belles after her own disastrous wedding came to a abrupt end in L.A. Brooke had high hopes about her new job until she meets her first clients older brother Seth Tyler. We find from the read that Seth wanted to give his sister Maya the wedding of her dreams but he wasn't to sure about her groom Neil that she had only known for a few months. This is where the plot thickens and we get a very interesting story that will involve the wedding planner,Brooke, Seth, Maya, Grant and a few other secondary characters [Heather, Alexis & Logan] that will add to this delicious story that seems genuine and so realistic. What happens when Brooke has to deal with the unhappy Seth...the brother of Maya the bride? There will be some misunderstanding about this hold deal...[hiring a PI,]? Will Seth stop his controlling ways? Now what was that all about? What about Brooke with her trust issues? Will there be some chemistry between Seth and Brooke? Well, to find out you will have to pick up this good read to see for yourself how well this author brings it all out to her reader. I will say this author has a way of capturing the readers thoughts, emotions and even weaving them into the read where you will seem to be right there in the midst of it all. The reader will be left wanting more answers that I am sure will come out in later series. So, if you are looking for a good romance read "To Have and To Hold" will bring it to you featuring Brooke and Seth.
I received this book from NOR for an honest review.
