When her friends order her to take a vacation, successful chef Jilly O'Hara is less than enthused. She may be overworked, but a trip to the mountains is not her idea of fun. Especially when she's roped into an outrageous scheme to pose as a happy bride--all to fulfill the kindly resort owner's dreams of once again hosting a lavish wedding. But the ruggedly handsome make-believe groom may just make it tolerable....

Walker Hale has kept to himself since his return from active duty--but the next thing he knows, he's also playing along with the wedding charade. Even this jaded loner isn't immune to Jilly's quirky charm...or her beauty. But vacations have to end sometime, and they'll soon have to decide if the feelings between them were more than pretend.

1/08 - I seem to have hit a rash of romances that aren't particularly (or even at all) romantic. Different authors, same great sounding plot, same disappointment when the book doesn't live up to its potential. I liked the premise - over-stressed top chef is sent to a knitting camp (I was a little dubious about that, but obviously knitting is something that connects the four women the quadrilogy centres around) and meets a man on her arrival. When Jilly's suitcase falls open, spilling some of the more embarrassing contents onto the footpath outside the Jackson Hole airport and Walker picks up the most embarrassing item - a lacy piece of lingerie - I had high hopes for the sexual tension between Jilly and Walker, but after that scene nothing eventuated. I was quite disappointed. The part I enjoyed most would have to be Winslow the dog. He was so intelligent and so loyal, it made me kind of wish that my dogs were as well trained as Winslow. As there's very little likelihood that dogs will feature in any of the other books in the series I don't know if I'll bother reading them.
