Three Weddings and a Kiss
Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
0380781220
September 1995
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Consisting of three novellas and a short story, this diverse collection of historicals focuses on marriage, sweeping from the wilds of the Colorado Rockies through the sultry antebellum South to the glitter of Regency England and the dark and misty reaches of Dartmoor. With stories written by experienced authors like Catherine Anderson, Loretta Chase, and Lisa Kleypas, this serviceable collection has something that will probably appeal to everyone. Although Kathleen Woodiwiss's "The Kiss" is the shortest and not necessarily the best, readers who remember Woodiwiss's The Flame and the Flower (1972) will enjoy revisiting Heather and Brandon and seeing what awaits Brandon's brother, Jeff.Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Publishers Weekly
Cooke (The Best Baby Shower Book provides an encyclopedic look at wedding showers that includes a discussion of prewedding traditions in other cultures and a look at the roots of American customs. (For example, "The bridal veil originated in ancient Greece and Rome, where it symbolized youth and virginity.") There are pointers on planning the shower ("don't expect people to balance a sit-down meal on their laps"); checklists; suggestions for themes (kitchen showers, romance showers) with appropriate food, activities and decorations; and advice on "keeping the party rolling." Cooke is a tad cute at times, recommending, for example, that shower guests make a list of endearments for the couple to use in marriage"the more creative or ridiculous, the funnier." But readers can pick and choose among the ideas offered,...

Of course, that's no reason to cancel a party—so Maddie and business partner Wesley Wescott decide to grab Holly, her sisters, best friend and go, even if Holly has also begun receiving ominous e-mails (e.g.,...
