When small-town society bride Savannah Loving jumps on her uncle Tom’s Ducati to bolt from her wedding at the bucolic Bluebird Inn, it sets the stage for Wilde’s “The Wedding That Wasn’t,” the first of the four linked romance stories collected here. As other brides cancel their events, Bluebird Inn owner Felicity wonders how she’ll stay afloat, but her luck changes when Tom decides to stay around. Charles takes up Savannah’s story, slowing her escape from town when she gets pulled over by police officer Hank Evans, who first taught her to ride a motorcycle as a preteen. Meanwhile, Dailey switches back to Savannah’s stood-up groom, Chance Worthington, a pediatrician who doesn’t know how to interact with children, and connects him with single-mom wedding planner Harper. In Keith’s installment, Savannah’s college-age brother reunites with his high school sweetheart, a waitress who was supposed to work the reception. These easily resolved love stories are perfect for a lazy Sunday read on a sun-drenched porch with a glass of sweet tea. (June)
