Book Review:

Cody has relocated from Texas to Boston; this doctor is used to having it all: from women fawning over him, to really fawning when they learn he is a doctor, his confusion when he arrives in a real estate office to engage their services for a new home.

Julie is a real estate agent with two rules: she only finds homes for couples, and she doesn’t like doctors. Not one bit. So this man, in his cowboy gear better suited to warmer weather and not appropriate doctor-wear shouldn’t ring her bells. But he does.

And, this is a quickly paced clever story with great banter and interaction, some ridiculously predictable, yet still funny, situations and misconceptions from family, and a heartwarming happy ever after.

With meddling family, family dinners and weather unlike any found regularly in Texas, Cody and Julie don’t stand a chance of ignoring the sparks between them. Cara Connelly has written a fun and clever holiday story, a perfect afternoon’s getaway to recover after a busy day!

In The Wedding Date, Cara Connelly launches her new Save the Date series, about the magic—and mayhem—of weddings!

Julie Marone isn't your ordinary matchmaker. Instead of setting up singles, she matches already-happy couples with their dream homes. And since she lost the other half of her own happy couple, it's her passion.

Cody Brown isn't your ordinary cowboy. Instead of roping runaway steers, he wrangles sick kids and strung-out junkies as an ER doc. And since his brother lost his wife to a drunk driver, it's his mission.

When Cody moves from Austin to Boston, he wants Julie to find him a condo. But not only is Cody single, he's a doctor, and ever since her fiancé died, she's got a major grudge against doctors.

Cody angles to be Julie's date for her sister's Christmas Eve wedding but discovers that her "no doctors" rule is unbending. Still, he's not quitting. If Cody has his way, they'll be a couple by Christmas, and the next dream house Julie finds will be their own

Excerpt:

 

The chandeliers sparked off the red in her hair. Her crossed leg swung like a black leather metronome. Strolling up to her, he stopped a little too close to her chair. Call him a caveman, but he liked it when she looked up at him.
She said a quick goodbye and shut off her phone.
“Trouble?” he asked.
She stood up, swinging her purse so it slapped him in the nuts. A brush-back, not an accident.
“Just my nosy, interfering sister grilling me about my date.” She headed for the door at the same half-run she’d used to get out of the weather. It occurred to him that it was her customary speed.
He lagged behind. After twelve straight in the ER, he wasn’t moving at anybody’s pace but his own.
“She the one who set you up?” he said.
She stopped to wait for him, just aggravated enough to talk about it. “Why does she care if I have a date for her wedding? She’s the only one who needs a date!”
She started for the door again. He lagged behind. She stopped, in a huff. “Are you injured or something? Did you sprain an ankle running in those boots?”
He pulled up alongside her. “I didn’t know we were in a race. But remember, the tortoise beats the hare.”
