Wildflower Wedding

LuAnn McLane. Signet Eclipse, $7.99 mass market (304p) ISBN 978-0-451-41559-2

McLane’s sixth Cricket Creek novel (after Moonlight Kiss) provides sweet romance with small-town southern charm. Gabby Goodwin has finally achieved her dream of owning a flower shop in Cricket Creek, Ky. She’s unprepared for her attraction to former town bad boy, Reese Marino. As their romance slowly blossoms, Reese must convince Gabby that he has left his teenage misdeeds behind to become a successful business owner, while Gabby must overcome her terror of being attracted to the type of faithless man who abandoned her mother. Meanwhile, Reese’s Uncle Tony tries to get past the betrayal of his ex-wife when his sexy new neighbor, Trish Daniels, catches his eye. McLane weaves together walks in the moonlight, stolen glances, and kisses under the stars with seduction and sizzling sex, populating the carefully crafted story with a cast of affable characters.
