A delightful romantic comedy from the bestselling author of Hitched and Be My Baby. Like a good old fashioned farce this novel romps along. Belle Craine is about to get married but things are just ever so slightly disrupted when the lovechild of her father, the respected vicar of the parish, turns up announces who she is and takes a shine to Belle’s fiancé, Kieran. A good piece of escapism.
Nothing is going to go wrong with Belle Craine’s dream wedding. Her mum won’t let it. Unfortunately, nobody’s told an Australian girl called Mona Starr, who turns up on the Craines’ doorstep without warning and announces that she’s Belle’s long-lost half-sister. It’s bad enough, but Belle also has to face the fact that her fiancé, Kieran, is spending an awful lot of time with ex-model Mona – a fact which her teenage sister, Jax, delights in pointing out. Is Belle being paranoid, or has she got a fight on her hands if she wants to keep her man? And more to the point: is he worth fighting for?
