If you love stories about amazing single dads, mouthwatering chocolate cupcakes, and friends who can’t remember why they were ever “just friends” in the first place, THE SUMMER WEDDING is the sweet, second-chance romance for you.

Two people who never thought they would find love again…

Two friends who can’t remember why they were ever “just friends” in the first place…

Daniel Brooker is an award-winning photojournalist who gave up his globetrotting career to become a wedding photographer after his wife passed away, leaving him as the sole parent to his son and daughter. After such a tragic loss, he never thought he'd be able to love again. Until he met Jenn.

The sweetest happily-ever-after…

Soon, Daniel is falling head over heels for Jenn and wants to show her what true love really is. But right when it looks like she might finally be ready to give love another try, her past comes back to haunt her. Will she be able to risk her heart again?

Sweet and heartwarming

When we first were introduced to Daniel and Jenn in The Beach Wedding (Married in Malibu, Book 1), the sparks between them are definitely there. Their story is sweet and heartwarming. While Daniel is all in from the get go, Jenn is more gun shy. I loved the way their relationship grows and develops. I just wish the story was longer, therefore, allowing for more depth and character development. Overall, it is still a good story worth reading.

A sweet love story

I received this ARC for an unbiased review. This is a story about being open to new love. No matter your past, you can find love again. Jenn and Daniel find love. Jenn had a cheating ex and Daniel lost his wife in a car accident. As they become friends, love also blooms. It is fast but enjoyable read.
