Title: Woman to Wed?
SubTitle: The Bride’s Bouquet
Pub Date: 26 July 2011
Author: Penny Jordan
I love Penny Jordan works, but this one in particular did not really amuse me or gives me those warm and fuzzy feeling. I feel annoyed with the whole stepmother-stepdaughter relationship instead. The maternal instinct that the heroine in this book had is way too ridiculous and exaggerating to me, considering that the age gap that the heroine had with her stepdaughter is not exactly that far.
Another thing that annoyed me is the insecurities that the heroine had. Made me feel like yelling at her to get over her past and move on.
The storyline was rather slow. Sorry, I have to say that I did not like this book. I rate this book 2 out of 5 stars. Rather disappointing.
I received an ARC of this book from Harlequin via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review for this book.

Persuaded to take on one last family task, Brad is brought into Claire’s well-ordered life. She provokes him, intrigues him, angers and excited him because he is sure that passion hides just below her calm surface. But what would happen to them both if that passion were revealed?
THE BRIDE’S BOUQUET: One weddingâ€” One weddingâ€”one bouquetâ€”leads to three new trips to the altar
