believes in statistics. Whatever can be measured and
quantified is real. Sitting in a bar with his trusty clipboard, Jared
plans to bring science to bear on the question of love. Anything has to
be better than watching his true love walk off with Tony. When suddenly
Callie walks into the bar and his life to deliver wedding invitations
to the bar owner, Jared knows he cannot let Callie walk away this time.

does an excellent job introducing the new continuity series The Wedding Planners.
The reader gets a glimpse at the six heroines readers will meet in
future books but never at the expense of Callie and Jared's story. The
friendship between the women adds a nice dimension to this romance and
the character of Belle, the owner of Tee Wedding Belles is just
priceless! The hero might be a bit of a nerd, but a sexy, smart and
caring one. I found this hero quite refreshing. Shirley Jump captures
the hero and heroine in their younger days and how life had changed
them. The dexterity of this author's characterization in two different
time periods makes their story both believable and quite moving. The
humor here is fantastic too.
