Former wild child Prue Collier has regretfully been estranged from her family for years, so when her sister invites her to her destination wedding in the Virgin Islands, Prue leaps at the chance to mend at least one broken family relationship and prove that she’s a changed person.
Tucker Davies, on the other hand, has come to the islands to stop the wedding because, as a childhood friend of the groom, he has reason to believe that the wedding is a huge mistake. But he didn’t count on going up against Prue.
Determined to make up for the past, Prue resolves to go to any lengths necessary to protect her sister’s big day— and if that requires a few tiny deceptions here and there, the occasional brush with the local authorities, and perhaps even instigating a barroom brawl, so be it. A sister has to do what a sister has to do.
But so does a friend, and Tucker has no intention of backing down, no matter how aggravating or even—to his surprise—appealing Prudence Collier can be.
The war is on—which is a shame because they’re both beginning to suspect surrendering would be a lot of fun…
“I can only say I LOVE this story. It had me grinning a lot and I read it in 2 hours, give or take a few minutes.”
“Prue is a great character. She is determined, klutzy, and so loyal. Then bring in Tucker, who is just as loyal, but not nearly as klutzy, and you have an amazing couple.”
“I laughed so many times, many times getting odd looks from whoever was sitting near me. When a book can make me laugh out loud I know that I will need to recommend it to my friends.”
CIR: What would you compare this story to?
FELDMAN: In some ways this book reminds me of films like 10 Things I Hate About You or Much Ado About Nothing in that there are definite elements of antagonism between the hero and heroine that later evolve into something sweeter, and there are also complicated relationships with friends and family that affect how the story plays out. Plus, there are plenty of moments filled with humor.
CIR: What is the main character like?
FELDMAN: Prue is very impulsive, which can get her into trouble–sometimes very funny trouble–but she is also very well-intentioned and fiercely loyal. She also wants very much to make up for mistakes she made during her reckless teenage years that caused a rift in her family, and her sister’s wedding offers her an opportunity to finally do that.
CIR: What themes do you address in this book?
FELDMAN: Relationships with friends and family are a key element in this story. Another big one is loyalty and what doing right by someone really looks like.
CIR: Is there any content that some readers might find questionable despite the overall “clean” feel of the book?
FELDMAN: There is some mild language in a few spots–the “rougher” versions of heck and darn. They’re pretty few and far between, though.
