The Bad Luck Wedding Cake Reviews
I really enjoyed this one! I'd never heard of this author before but the book was on a staff recommends list at my library and I thought it looked cute. I absolultely loved the Blessings in this book! They were such adorable little girls! They definitely made the story.
The hero, Tye, made it very hard to consistently like him. He spoke to the heroine, Claire, horribly a couple times. He apologized and she forgave him but still, some things you do not say. It was a very good story, the Menaces/Blessings were adorable and had Tye, their uncle, wrapped around their fingers.
It was cute.
With his brother and sister-in-law away on their honeymoon, Tye McBride is watching over his nieces, better known as "The McBride Menaces". The girls have decided that Uncle Tye needs a wife, but marriage is the last thing on Tye's mind. He's already dodging prospective brides after the local newspaper ran an article about his inheritance. Claire Donovan has arrived in town to open a new bakery. After jilting her fiance at the altar, Claire also wants to steer clear of marriage. But a Bad Luck Wedding Cake and the girls meddling grandmother force Tye and Claire into a marriage of convenience...a marriage that may be just what the need.This book is a follow-up to "The Bad Luck Wedding Dress". I love the humor in these books, especially some of the mischief that the Menaces get into. I especially loved their fortune-telling fish named Spike. But I didn't care for Tye's continuous insistence that he was not good enough for Claire. That got old very quickly. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
Enjoyed this book although not as much as the first (The Bad Luck Wedding Dress). I'm not into historical romances and stumbled across the fist book by accident. Since I surprisingly really like the first book, i went on to read the second. I recall this book moving a little slower than the first one. The Menace's are still as fun as every with their antics. Tye and Claire definitley have some heat baking. In this book, Tye is watchign the girls while Trace and Jenny go off for what i remmber to only have been a month long honeymoon. It seemed odd to me that months passed and Tye never mentioned that his brother and sister-in-law have not returned yet. Maybe my recollection of how long they were planning to be gone was wrong. Even with that potentionl over sight, it was still a good book to read that even has a little suspense in it. Not to level of the first book but you get a taste. If you are into historical romances, i say give it a try. I don't see me reading this again.
Second book in the Bad Luck Wedding Series. This book is as loving and as funny as the first book. This is the story of Tye, twin brother to our hero in the first book, Back Luck Wedding Dress. It takes place immediately where the first book leaves off and includes many of the same characters and centers around his story, his love interest's and his three nieces, daughters of his twin. Great book! Fun story, same premise as the first, they find love, heroine who is strong, leads her hero to acceptance of the strong love between them. Because I loved these first books in the series, I am buying all the rest!
Lol, I am the only 1-star review on this one... I made it to page 50 but gave up because I thought the hero was an absolute goofball. He didn't come across as a historical romance hero, more of a nerdy contemporary hero. Nothing about him to that point made me want to continue reading the story. (nothing especially endearing about the heroine either)
I love discovering new authors to read. I won a smash words copy of the book through a contest. I especially loved the Blessing they were adorable little girls! They definitely made the story.
Light-hearted read and as usual, the menaces were a riot.
Really enjoyed this!!
