Harper Shaw is certain she’ll never live down her reputation as the jilted bride after her fiancé bails on the wedding and decides to go on the honeymoon by himself.

Grant Addison’s career depends on saving the failing catering hall where Harper’s wedding was supposed to be held. He can’t return her deposit money to her, but his business proposal could help them both stay out of the red.

Their unlikely partnership heats up the cold winter nights in Spring River Valley, and leads them to discover January just might be hottest month of the year.

Jilted in January is an all-too-accurate title.

It’s mid-winter and poor Harper Shaw is most decidedly alone, not on her honeymoon, and not with the love of her life. She does have best friend Audrey – and their conversations are realistic and revealing. She also has a problem – getting what funds back she can, from the various would-be wedding venues. One of those, and a dear man named Grant, manage to involve her in their problems…and slowly… we begin to hope for Harper’s future. This is really a nice, focused romance, with a bit of an unusual twist.

I truly hated the jump in point-of-view in this one: it so interrupted the flow of the story. I was already too attached to Harper and interested in her next move. On the other hand, I loved how Harper’s best friend was never forgotten. Aside from this issue, it was a pleasant story.

I have to think this the perfect beach read: Perfect length, and nice to be sitting on white sands while the main character is dreaming of them.
