Everything but a Wedding

Holly Jacobs, Author . Avalon $23.95 (183p) ISBN 978-0-8034-9924-9

In Jacobs's third installment in her cream puff Everything But series, Hungarian matriarch Nana Vancy continues to worry about the Salo family wedding curse that's been the family scourge since Nana's groom-to-be inadvertently stood her up at their lavish wedding; two of her three grandchildren have already fallen victim to the same fate, leaving startup developer Dori Salo as the last great hope. But the recently dumped Dori would rather focus on her Erie Hazard Hills housing development than dwell on her lame luck in love. Enter architect Bill Hastings, who puts on airs as Carter Hastings IV to woo Dori into hiring his cousin's interior design firm to work on the development's model homes. Soon, sparks fly and Nana's hopes skyrocket for Dori and Bill. Can a happily ever after be far away, curses be damned? The book is undeniably sugary sweet and light as air, but it has a certain cuteness in its favor. (Dec.)
