This is a book that I couldn’t put down despite the fact that it was past my bedtime. I eventually had to for the sake of being able to function at my job the next day. However, the level of my function was up for debate because all I could do was think about getting home to finish this book! That’s the type of book Dearly Beloved is, life gripping! While reading it I kept thinking how I couldn’t wait to write a review for it. Thanks to unfortunate circumstances such as getting sick, it’s been a couple of days since I finished the book but I’m finding that my love for it hasn’t diminished one bit. I’m super excited that it’s book one in the series! Yeah for me! I’ll be reading the next book when it’s released.

This happens to be my second book that I’ve read by Peggy Jaeger and I’m going to have to officially classify myself as a Peggy Jaeger fan. She writes amazing books with unforgettable characters that you wish you personally knew.

Some people say that romance bridal books are no longer fashionable, and they might decide not to read this book, at which point I say, they are missing out on an entertaining read. Dearly Beloved was more than an entertaining read for me because I really connected with the cast of characters. I loved Colleen, the heroine and her family, the O’Dowds, especially Nanny Fee. Oh, and it’s a huge understatement to say that I fell head over heels for the hero, Slade. I mean, seriously, just his name is drool worthy.

An element of the writing style in Dearly Beloved that I particularly enjoyed was the use of colloquialisms. I want to go back and write some of them down and use them in my verbiage repertoire. I just thought that they were clever, funny and implemented at the most appropriate timing.

I have to address the relationship between Colleen and Slade. Slade has, let me just say, some issues that fortunately for him, Colleen is a strong woman who has the necessary skills and family support to help him see the light, if you will. Their romance left me feeling a beautiful book glow at the end. There was plenty of chemistry between these two to light up the night.

Needless to say this was an awesome book. I’d like to personally thank Peggy Jaeger for writing one of my favorite themes since quality bridal romance books are hard to find these days. Now, I just need to practice some patience for the next book in the A Match Made in Heaven series to come out.
