For Better or Worse by Diann Hunt & Aussie giveaway!

Synopsis:~

She's a wedding coordinator. He's a divorce attorney. She begins marriages. He ends them. How could these two possibly find common ground?Wendy Hartline is finally starting to settle into the single life. After a difficult season of grief following her husband's death, she's taken over the family business of coordinating memorable weddings. Life has become . . . comfortable.Then the charming and incredibly frustrating Marco Amorini opens a legal practice--specializing in divorces--right next to her wedding chapel and stirs up everything.

My take:~

Diann Hunt has written a pearl of a novel with humour, insight and not a little angst! Wendy is a 40 something widow, keeping her husband's dream alive while riding the merry go round of trying to keep her disapproving dad, distant daughter and everyone else in her life, happy. As Wendy negotiates the curves in her road she begins to view her own life and family with more grace and understanding, opening her eyes to a future able to be faced with hope and anticipation. Marco is a great character, with plenty of genuine flaws that add fun and spice to the dialogue. While I wanted to shake Wendy for the time it took her to realise she was looking in the wrong place for love, her vacillating fits with the personality Diann has given her, continuing the realistic flavour. For Better or For Worse is well worth adding to your collection, especially for those looking for a romance beyond the usual 20 year old characters.

i'm going to have my review on this book on wed...but did you find it weird that if everyone ends up marrying there is a possibility that step siblings are marrying each other?

Rel said...

No, Deb - LOL!!! I think it is different when you haven't grown up as step siblings! A friend of mine and her mum are married to brothers :)

I like the sound of this book so add me to the draw.
I think all those marriages would make for interesting family get togethers.
