Every Bride Has Her Day

The Best Laid Wedding Plans
By Lynnette Austin
Introducing the 2nd book in the Magnolia Brides series of charming, heartfelt Southern contemporary romance!
Can love revive a wilting heart?
Cricket O’Malley can’t wait to plant roots back home in Misty Bottoms, Georgia, where she’s returned to restore an abandoned flower shop to its former glory. The only blemish? Her neighbor’s house is even more neglected than her old flower shop, and its occupant seems as surly as he is darkly handsome.
Devastated body and soul after a tough case went south, New York City detective Sam DeLuca thought he’d have no trouble finding solitude in the quiet Georgia town of Misty Bottoms, but his bubbly neighbor seems determined to shine happiness into Sam’s life. Sam is equally determined to close himself off, but his heart says otherwise…
This series, published by Sourcebooks, will be available at your local bookstores and on many of your favorite websites. Happy reading! ...Lynnette
Read excerpt from Every Bride Has Her Day.
Austin’s engaging second Magnolia Brides contemporary (after The Best Laid Wedding Plans) brings a Yankee into the heart of the South…The charming side of small-town living and some creative flower-arrangement tips make this sweet romance a delightful read.—Publishers Weekly
Sam fills the Big Bad Wolf persona with his surly attitude, yet Cricket sees past that image to the broken man inside, which sets up the slow burn of their relationship. Sam’s past adds a suspenseful element, as well as providing the catalyst for an “opposites attract” scenario. Misty Bottoms is an ideal location for a contemporary romance because it acts as a character in itself, capturing the essence of a small southern town to perfection.—RT Book Reviews 4 Stars
Georgia's Low Country. Soft, sultry, summer nights, sweet tea sippin' on the back porch, fireflies twinklin', and oh, those Southern men with their slow drawls and even slower hands. I enjoy writing about sassy, independent women and the men who love them, men who know how to treat their women and aren't afraid of emotion, whether it's anger or passion.
Turning crumbling Magnolia House into a wedding destination will be hard work, but Jenni Beth Beaumont knows it can be done. She's from the South, so, instead of whining, she rolls up her sleeves and makes things happen...along with some help from her friends. Three strong women—all determined to make Misty Bottoms, Georgia, the dream wedding destination. And if they find love of their own along the way? All the better.
I hope you'll come along with me to Misty Bottoms, Georgia, while Jenni Beth, Cricket, and Tansy meet the men who'll shake up their world!
