A jilted small-town doctor. An allergic-to-white bridal boutique owner. Can these two gun-shy cynics ever say 'I Do'?
Dr. Joe Whelan lost his taste for love when he was left at the altar-thanks to a woman who should've kept her focus on his fiancée's bridal gown and out of his business. Moving to the remote Stewart Island wasn't far enough to get away from those humiliating memories. Luckily Joe's got a plan to both get even with the sharp-tongued firecracker who ruined his life, and to ensure his sister doesn't marry the biggest mistake of hers.
MacKenna Jones loves a good wedding so long as she's not the one walking down the aisle. Now she's temporarily back on Stewart Island and face-to-face with the good doctor who boils her blood one moment and weakens her knees the next. A seven day road trip with him to sabotage his sister's wedding in the Marriage Capital of the World wasn't her idea, nor was falling for his sexy bedside manner-so why are wedding bells ringing in her ears?
Marriage and happily-ever-after are for suckers, but is love in the cards for MacKenna and Joe when what happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas?

"Just as the must-read series of Donna Kauffman (The Bachelors of Blueberry Cove), Jill Shalvis (Lucky Harbor), Terri Osburn (Anchor Island), Marie Force (The McCarthys of Gansett Island), Sherryl Woods (Chesapeake Shores) have entranced me with their seaside settings and caring communities - so has Tracey Alvarez - and I'm adding her series to my must-read shelf too."~ Fab Fantasy Fiction

The wait is over
I have been waiting for the Joe & Mac story for what feels like forever (alright it wasn't really). I begged for my ARC copy to read & review! 😂
I wasn't disappointed, as an avid reader of the Due South series I had noticed them in the periphery of some of the stories and couldn't wait t see what was in store for them.
Mac owns a bridal store in Invercargill so she has popped up here and there in previous stories and Joe is the resident Irish Dr for Stewart Island. There is some history between the two which has caused some animosity, friction & avoidance of each other. Tracey teases out their story with just the right amount of steam and some bumps in the road. Mac is prickly and antagonistic & Joe is charming and intense. Both of them are commitment phobes.
This book takes place in a few more locations than the previous books in the series which is a nice twist.
This is a great fun read and I found it hard to put down for when real life interrupted. If I hadn't received my requested ARC copy I still would have gone out & bought this book. So do yourself a favour & buy this and escape for a couple of hours to a beautiful island, parts of NZ & Vegas!
