RUNAWAY GROOM

RUNAWAY GROOM                               SALLY CLEMENTS
Posted: Aug. 8, 2013

Runaway GroomSeven years ago, Matthew Logan ran out on his wedding to June Leigh.

Life is good for fledgling dress-designer April Leigh. She couldn’t be happier that her sister has found a new love, and is excited about her very first commission, June’s wedding dress.
When April discovers June has invited runaway groom Matthew Logan to the wedding, she has to intervene. Matthew’s presence will ruin everything – her father hates him, and just the sight of him in the church might give her mother a heart attack.

Matthew Logan has no intention of going to June’s wedding, but when intriguing April arrives on his doorstep, he can’t resist getting to know her better. When a disaster forces them together neither can deny the passion that combusts into a red-hot affair.

Discovering the truth about the past shifts April’s feelings from lust to love, but bitter experience has taught Matthew to guard his heart.

When it looks as though Matthew will lose her forever, will he fight or flee?


MY REVIEW:


The Runaway Groom was much better than I thought it was going to be. I was not expecting some of the twist in it. Tess should by all accounts hate Matthew for running away from her sister and leaving her at the alter after she had her miscarriage. It just seems that her childhood crush, Matthew, still leaves that very teeny tiny corner that finds it hard. Now though here she is making her sister whom she loves yet feels she is spoiled at the same time’s wedding dress. When her sister reveals that she is inviting Matthew to her current wedding to the man she is now marrying. To show all the town that Matthew is a good guy and no hard feelings. Which Tess is kinda glad about but??? Her mother and father despises him for getting their daughter pregnant and then leaving her at the altar. April’s always known in her heart that there was more to her sister, June’s story she was hiding more than she was telling everyone. Yet, wow how and why it was a lot crueler then I thought. Matthew was such a prince to put up with it for so long. Then when April wants to talk him out of come to wedding for him to take a chance on April being the sister to June, just listen is amazing. There is a moment when they make an adult connect to one another that they feel that they have to know each other in order to make their own minds up before he decides to attend or not but she has to agree to get to know him first. They do and their lives change. Then there was this pivotal point in the story where I did find myself just hating Matthew for a little while. All the while April keeps her cool a lot more with all her family members and her man to the point where I would have gone off and or cried my eyes out. I know that their love was formed way before they even knew and they were just too young to name it. She saw it as a crush and he as a friendship, was mainly his little sisters. Life just has a way of getting in the way of our lives, emotions and good judgments’. This was a refreshing story of life, love, friendship, family, betrayal, loyalty, honesty and so much more.
