Book Summary:

Eight years after filling the role of runaway bride, Megan Garrett inexplicably finds herself at her high school reunion. After being tormented by her ex-fiancé, Megan decides to finally leave all memories of high school behind. But there s one person, the handsome Trevor Riley, who doesn’t want to let her get away again. Be charmed alongside Megan as she learns to trust her heart.

Yes another Shannon Guymon book.  This is the 5th book of hers I have read in the last two month.  This one is defiantly LDS fiction.  There are quite a few reference to LDS culture and the characters are LDS.

All of Shannon’s books that I have read have had very similar story lines. Crazy parents, some sort of betrayal and finally starting over with a new life and love.  They are light, cute, clean, fun reads which is exactly what I’m looking for when I need a break.  

This one was originally written in 2002 so some of the content is dated.  I think even back in 2002 some of what is portrayed would be inaccurate as far as how things work in the real estate world but those who aren’t married to a Realtor would likely not notice.

This is another book that lovers of LDS Romantic Comedies will enjoy.  Those who roll their eyes at LDS fiction should skip this one as it is a little preachy and the everything wraps up a little too easily and nicely.  As for me I personally I enjoy the big old happy bow tying up the end of the book.
