About:

Joanna Chandler always dreamed of becoming an attorney. But when she left law school to help care for her dying mother, stepping away from her single-minded pursuit gave her space to reconsider. The only question is, if not law, what should she do with her life?

To keep her mind off an uncertain future, Joanna helps her older sister, Phylicia, throw an amazing outdoor wedding on the charming Missouri property the three Chandler sisters own together. That’s when she realizes wedding planning could be a thriving business of its own. And Lukas Blaine, the handsome wedding DJ, opens her mind to the possibility of love on the horizon.

But there’s more to Luke than meets the eye. The young boy he’s been mentoring has lost his mother and become Luke’s ward. Mateo is sullen and angry and needs constant attention. How can Luke possibly find the time to start a new relationship or saddle someone else with a wounded child? He may have to let go of the woman of his dreams–and crush her dreams at the same time.

My thoughts:

What a great book. I think this might be the second in the series, I didn’t read the first one and I found that I didn’t feel like I  missed anything, other than Phylicia and Quinn’s story, which does sound interesting.

But I loved Joanna’s story, although her lack of concert for Mateo at first bothered me. Luke did acknowledge it in his thoughts so there were some red flags. You’ll have to read the book to see if that changes.

I was curious how it would all work out. I also enjoyed the setting for this book, a beautiful place I would love to visit.
