Picture Perfect Bride

Laurie LeClair. Tule, $3.99 e-book (240p) ISBN 978-1-951786-34-2

LeClair delivers an appealing tale of second chances in the second Cupid’s Corner romance (after Dear Cupid). Adam Larson broke Molly McCleary’s heart when he left her and their hometown of Cupid’s Corner a week before their wedding. Six years later, Adam owns a successful construction company and is determined to win Molly back. Molly, now a photographer with a fledgling business, has never gotten over Adam and is reminded of the heartbreak he caused whenever she’s hired to photograph weddings. When Adam returns to town hoping both to atone for his mistake and to transform a local property into a wedding venue, Molly’s knocked sideways. Can she take a risk on Adam again, or are they permanently over? LeClair convincingly portrays the fear and joy Molly feels as she considers letting her ex back into her life, skillfully injecting the plot with heart and hope. Rich secondary characters, especially Molly’s brother, Sean, and her bestie, Gemma, add charm to the quaint small-town setting. This sweet tale of the return of the one who got away will gratify hopeless romantics. (Apr.)
