Feature book: A Wedding She’ll Never Forget
Can a couple who appear to be such a mismatch ever find common ground?
Scarlet Anders is an owner of DC Affairs, an event planning business. She is in the beginning stage of preparing for the wedding of her friend. She meets the best man and he rocks her world. Scarlet is known to do all the right things, to have all the correct behaviour for the right occasions. She is known for her correct and proper behaviour even with her parents. She even has the correct fiancé. When Daniel McNeal turns up, her world is thrown into a spin.
Daniel McNeal is a self-made billionaire Australian, riding on the social media wagon. In his past, one he doesn’t want to talk about but eventually does, he could have gone to jail if his behaviour continued as it was. He wants to add his personal touch to the wedding, which doesn’t impress Scarlet. Daniel is attracted to Scarlet from the first and their kiss causes Scarlet to call off her engagement.
Scarlet has a fall at work and hits her head. When she doesn’t remember her current life she clings to Daniel to help her through. Scarlet goes to Australia with Daniel as she tries to recover her memory. They do many of the tourist things and her real persona comes to the fore where she is freer and it feels more natural to her. But there is a memory that nags at Scarlet, particularly after she remembers her name and life. When she confronts her parents, her life will never be the same. Daniel thinks she is being unreasonable in her actions, but Scarlet wants to do what she thinks is correct. It is this that causes the rift between Daniel and Scarlet. Naturally Daniel and Scarlet do get their HEA.
Both of these characters keep to a public image as this is what is expected of them in the circles they move in in Washington. When he is home in Australia, Daniel will let his natural self come out to play. Scarlet has very few opportunities to allow her true nature to appear until she temporarily loses her memory, but she is able to do this with Daniel. I like stories in which the characters are able to let go in this way.
This story had a twist that I hadn’t expected and it was a great addition to the character development. I enjoyed reading this story.
