The Wedding Garden


A few years ago my brother married in a lovely garden setting in Atlanta. The harp played, the vocalist’s sweet soprano soared over the gathering, and tender vows were exchanged under a floral arbor. And then, right in the middle of all that romance, a cop car wailed past, sirens blasting. I have to tell you, everyone in the place cracked up. We’re a crazy bunch, but that’s our favorite memory about the wedding. Well, except for the chocolate table.

Now, I’ve told all that to set you up for THE WEDDING GARDEN, the second book in my Redemption River series, which releases any day now. This is one of my personal favorites, with an edgy, reformed bad boy, a couple of secrets I hope will surprise you, a cast of colorful townspeople, and a dose of southern charm. Hope you like it, too.

Are there any wedding gardens in your past?

  3. I have read this book since I get them early by subscription and absolutely loved it. I loved it that Sloan did not let his experience turn him into a really bad person.

  4. Well, the best laid plans of mice and men go astray. Even at weddings!

  5. Sketchgirl and Ellen, thank you so much for the kind words. I'm thrilled you read it and liked it.

    Courtney, let me know what you think about it.

    Lyn, you're right. The best laid plans. My brother and his new wife laughed too. Didn't bother them a bit.

  6. No matter how beautiful the wedding we always remember the crazy or unusual things...like HELP written on the bottom of the grooms shoes which showed up when the couple kneeled to pray, not the best time to laugh! The Wedding Garden sounds great, I will look forward to reading it.
