About A WEDDING AT TWO LOVE LANE
Never say never when it comes to love.
Greer Jones has made a real name for herself at the elegant matchmaking agency Two Love Lane. For a lot of reasons—including a past engagement she broke off—practical tech expert Greer is more interested in the business of love than the experience of it, but she can’t help but covet a gorgeous wedding gown that’s the prize in an upcoming cocktail-party contest. In a moment of brazen inspiration, Greer asks a handsome Brit she’s only just met to accompany her to the party. He agrees—and Greer believes her date is a starving artist. Little does she know the truth. . .
Ford Smith, as he calls himself, is actually Stanford Elliott Wentworth Smythe, the Eighth Baron of Wickshire. Fresh off a breakup with a money-grubbing siren who deceived him all the way to the altar, Ford has no desire to fall in love—especially with Greer who, like the desired wedding gown, is beautiful but only skin-deep. But soon Ford realizes that there’s more to Greer than meets the eye. Her professionalism is matched only by her passion for life and love. . .and, best of all, she has no idea that he’s to the manor born. Could it be that true love is priceless after all?
Most little girls (okay, older women, too) dream of their Perfect Wedding. As we are now in the digital age, there are Pinterest boards devoted to each woman’s ideal of what their Perfect Wedding should look like; many (most?) of them planning even before they have a groom. Such is the case with Greer Jones; she is up to 19 Perfect Wedding books. She is so moved by a wedding dress named Royal Bliss at auction that she decides she must have it. Such begins Kieran Kramer’s latest Two Love Lane book, A Wedding at Two Love Lane.
Royal Bliss lives up to the promise to bring the wearer (or bidder) their own lifetime HEA as Greer literally falls into the lap of Ford Smith, aka Stanford Elliott Wentworth Smythe, the English Baron of Wickshire. Both Greer and Ford are wary and slow to trust. As they compete together to win the gown, Greer realizes that the Perfect Wedding doesn’t matter; it is the who, not the what, that is important.
I really love Kramer’s writing style, it is sweetly southern. There is a solid cast of supporting characters who add richness and depth to the storyline. This novel feels very much to me like an old Hepburn and Tracy screwball comedy. The action and the dialogue are fast and witty. Once you start reading you won’t want to stop.
