Title: The Fairy Tale Bride
Author: Scarlet Wilson
Opens: …Lisa Renee pushed the last dress into place …
My Thoughts: THE FAIRY TALE BRIDE is a novella and the first in the Montana born Bride series of connecting stories by different authors that are set around the upcoming wedding of a local girl turned celebrity.
Being a novella the author Scarlet Wilson doesn’t have a lot of time to expand on the characters and develop a lot of background, But Scarlet managed to deal with the constraints very well. Being set in a small town in Montana where everyone knows everyone else’s business adds to the story because background information is given to the reader by gossiping locals. Lisa Renee owns the Marietta bridal salon. Her aim is to find the perfect dresses and accessories for brides and their attendants. Now a local girl made big in Hollywood is coming home to have her wedding away from the big smoke. With her comes two spoiled petulant Hollywood starlets who have rejected every bridesmaids dress in every store in the big city. Can Lisa Renee find the perfect frocks for these two before she kills them, or the bride does!!!
When she is not making brides happy Lisa Renee is up in the local hospital’s paediatric ward volunteering with the sick children. Her sister Grace died of Leukaemia and she realised the importance of having someone not medical around to read, listen or just hold a hand and care. Lisa Renee is giving back to the hospital what she received. She is reading a fairy story to a child with cancer when Dr Adam Brady first spies her. Adam is new to Marietta, he recently had a huge lottery win but after paying his out his huge education debt and loans he is not rolling in money. That doesn’t stop people from being friends with him just to get their hands on the loot. He hopes no one will recognise him and so learn to like him for who he is rather than what they can get out of him. Lisa has a kind heart despite tragedies in her near past, Adam is devoted to saving lives and helping people despite the money. Of course they’re going to fall in love. Trouble is if they don’t start to confide in each other things could go pear-shaped.
Its very size means that THE FAIRY TALE BRIDE is a fast read – that it is charming and funny with a little bit of drama as well is the icing on the wedding cake.
