Picture Perfect Wedding

Lynnette Austin. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $7.99 mass market (416p) ISBN 978-1-4926-1803-4

Austin’s delicious third Magnolia Brides contemporary (after Every Bride Has Her Day) proves that sometimes old romances can reignite despite years of separation and misunderstanding. When Tansy Calhoun Forbes returns to her hometown of Misty Bottoms, Ga., after her divorce from gambler Emerson, she is stunned to run into her former fiancé, Beck Elliot. Beck does his best to ignore her even though the townspeople keep making every effort to throw them together. Beck isn’t sure that he can forgive Tansy for walking away from him to marry someone else. But Beck still can’t help his attraction to Tansy once he gets to know her as she is now, and especially when he is charmed by her four-year-old daughter, Gracie. Tansy must decide whether to risk her own heart and Gracie’s happiness as Beck struggles to put old hurts aside and accept the real reason for Tansy’s abrupt wedding to Emerson. Tansy’s life in smalltown Georgia is filled with warm memories and friendship as she embarks on a new career as a bakery owner, and readers will be drawn in most of all by the sweet Southern romance.
