About the Book:

It’s the wedding of the year…

But who will get to host it?

In Heart’s Landing, Evelyn wants to prove she’s a good manager of the Captain’s Cottage by the bay—a favorite place for weddings. Meanwhile, Ryan has invested his life savings to remodel the town’s old boatworks into a brand-new wedding venue.

When a Marine and his bride win the Wedding in a Week contest, they have seven days to put together a romantic, all-expenses-paid event. It’ll be written up in Weddings Today magazine. But will they choose Evelyn’s cottage or Ryan’s boatworks?

The rival business owners cozy up to the bride and groom, helping them plan their military wedding. And even though Evelyn and Ryan both grew up in Heart’s Landing, they learn they never truly knew each other until now. But can they trust each other when only one of them can win?

This sweet, heartwarming romance includes a free Hallmark original recipe.

My Review:

A Waterfront Wedding is the third book in the Heart's Landing series, and although each book can be read as a stand-alone, it's fun to read them in order to really feel the warmth and love in this charming town of Heart's Landing. If I were getting married, this is truly the place I would want that ceremony to happen.

As with the first two books in this series, author Leigh Duncan lures her readers into this charming small town that is so easy to visualize that you feel like you are right there, surrounded by quaint little shops and horse drawn carriages. Her descriptions are so lovely that you never want to leave. This is sweet romance at its finest!

We meet Evelyn in the second book of this series, A Cottage Wedding. Ryan is new to the series, but not new to Evelyn. She has had an interest in him since their school days! And Ryan has been interested in Evelyn for just as long. When the two are thrown together as competitors in the Wedding-In-A-Week contest, new sparks develop that cannot be ignored.

If you like stories about second chances, both in a love relationship and in a family relationship, this is the book for you.  As for me... I'm hoping there is another book in this series in the future. Oh! And be sure to check out the recipe at the end of the story!!
