LOVE ON A WHIM by Suzanne Woods Fisher, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

(A Heartwarming Contemporary Clean Romance Series Set in Small-Town Cape Cod)
" . . . we passed by a wedding chapel and . . . he asked me to marry him."

That is Brynn Haywood's story and she's sticking to it . . . except panicking the morning after her impromptu wedding to a man she just met, means she retreats to Cape Cod  . . . as a totally hot mess. Organized, sensible, confident, successful civil engineer Brynn admits she might have given in to her heart without using her head, except now she has no idea how to find her 24 hour husband. Her best friend Dawn is ready to hire an attorney and make Brynn's "little problem" go away, but it's not that simple. Love never is.

When a high-end wedding party employs Brynn's friends as back-up caterers, she throws herself headfirst into baking . . . something that she actually loves to do . . . meaning that she is too busy to think about what to do next . . . but "next" is going to happen whether she is ready or not; thank goodness "nothing is impossible with God".

Seriously, I loved this story! These characters are an award worthy showcase of entertaining attributes. Yes, Dawn still thinks she can control everything and everyone, (but her heart is in the right place) Callie is still as cool as a cucumber under pressure, (while being annoyingly fastidious about her food prep) and Marnie is just the best cheerleader, umpire, sage advice giver, and all round peacemaker on the face of the planet. Meanwhile, Brynn is quietly becoming the best version of herself with a little help from her friends. Maybe that meet- the -man, marry- the -man strategy wasn't so bad after all. "Same ingredients. Better outcome."

BackCover Blurb:
Brynn Haywood's impulsive marriage to a man she'd known less than 24 hours leaves her with deep regret. She flees to Cape Cod, finding refuge with her loyal friend, Dawn Dixon. As Brynn grapples with her emotions, Dawn acts swiftly, eager to help secure a lawyer for her through her mother Marnie's good friend, Lincoln Hayes. However, Lincoln's preoccupation with his daughter's lavish wedding brings unexpected challenges.

The arrival of Lincoln's estranged son, Bear Hayes, stirs the waters further. Alarmed by his father's extravagant generosity toward the Dixon family, Bear ignites friction between Marnie and Lincoln. As the wedding day arrives, Lincoln vanishes--and an unwelcome guest makes a surprise appearance.

Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher delights with this sweet story of love, family, and the unpredictability of life.
