It's the perfect place for a wedding…and Paul Drennan's lovely daughter will make a beautiful bride. But Bride Mountain Inn co-owner Bonnie Carmichael only has eyes for the father of the bride. Too bad she's already married -- to the inn itself. Still, if anyone could make her think of her needs, her wants, it's this sexy single dad….
Very good book with fun moments and emotional ones. Bonnie is co-owner of the inn where Paul's daughter is getting married. From the moment they ran into each other - literally - there have been sparks flying between them. Paul doesn't understand his fascination with Bonnie, who is pretty well tied to the inn, when he's about to be free for the first time in twenty-one years. But he is, and the more time he spends with her, the deeper it goes.
I really liked both Bonnie and Paul. She was the driving force behind the three siblings reopening the inn after they inherited it and she is the one who is there 24/7. The first couple times she met Paul, when his daughter was planning her wedding, he knocked her right off her feet. After he helped her up, she noticed a zing of attraction. At the beginning of this book, they encounter each other at the farmers market and take the time to talk to each other. When Bonnie discovers that he's interested in learning to cook healthier meals for himself, she offers him a spot in her cooking class. The classes bring them closer together and soon they are spending what time they can together. It isn't as much as she would like, but as busy as she is she'll take what she can get, and some of it is quality time indeed. Paul has made it pretty obvious that he's really looking forward to his upcoming freedom, so Bonnie doesn't quite know what to expect of their deepening relationship. She suspects that she is falling in love with him, and wants more than he may be prepared to offer. When he breaks things off rather suddenly, telling her she needs more than he can give her, she blasts him for being arrogant and condescending in telling her what her own needs are. I loved the way she didn't just sit back and take it. The couple of weeks before his daughter's wedding were hard for her because she really missed him. I really liked the way that her brother and sister were there to support her without trying to tell her what to do. I really loved the daughter's wedding and loved seeing Paul grovelling later on.
