"A great read!"
I am a big fan of the Duets and have collected them all so
far. These two stories by Jennifer Drew are good examples
of why I enjoy the Duets as much as I do.
ONE BRIDE TOO MANY is Cole Bailey's story. It
seems that Cole and his twin brother Zack have been
blackmailed by their grandfather. They either find nice
girls to marry or he'll sell his portion of the family
business. Now Cole and Zack don't care about that since
they've started Bailey Contracting, their own business but
their mother runs Bailey Baby Products and will be very
disappointed if she's no longer a part of the business.
Cole lost the coin toss so he has to find a bride first.
In order to do this, Cole crashes a wedding reception
thinking that would be the perfect place to meet women. He
ends up meeting Tess Morgan, an old high school friend who
tutored him in British Literature. It seems that Tess has
slimmed down, toned up and gotten beautiful. When Cole
falls he falls hard.
One Groom To Go is Zack's story. Zack is a tougher
nut to crack. He knows there's absolutely no way he's
going to find a bride. When he's blackmailed into starring
on a woman's home improvement show, he thinks he may have
found the perfect woman to help him with the farce until he
actually works with her. Megan Danbury, the hostess of the
show, and Zack do not see eye to eye about anything! She
resents that he won't follow the script and he thinks she's
just too anal about everything! It seems as though her
grandfather and his grandfather are big golfing buddies so
when they jump into the fray, things just go from bad to
worse! Then Megan is offered the dream job in New York
that will really further her career. Can Zack let her go?
Will she be able to let Zack go?
These two stories were charming, funny and a riot
to read. I thoroughly enjoyed them both and look forward
to more stories from the mother and daughter writing team
of Jennifer Drew!
