Review: A Wedding for Christmas by Lori Wilde

51vdgpbycml-_sy346_The whole town is ready for the holidays: the Cookie Club is baking, Main Street glitters with lights, the carolers sing…there’s even a Christmas wedding.

When bodyguard Ryder sees his best friend’s sister, Katie, at an L.A. Christmas party, he mistakes the slinky blonde for a celebrity stalker and tackles her. Then they tackle each other . . . at his place. The next morning, Katie’s gone, and Ryder tells himself it’s for the best. It isn’t. Now, one Christmas later, Ryder’s falling for the woman he’s been missing in the town he hasn’t missed at all. . .

Katie Cheek’s outgrown the romantic fantasies she had about Ryder when she was fifteen. Katie’s packed their hot night away in a box labeled “fling”—or tried to. But Twilight’s bad boy is the best man in her brother’s wedding. And up-close and personal, Ryder’s impossible to ignore. So Katie can either go into hiding—or surrender to Christmas magic.



A Wedding for Christmas is a wonderful mix of a sweet Hallmark Christmas movie and the romcom The Holiday.  Katie and Ryder have an unexpected fling while she is house swapping/ vacationing in LA.  Neither one expects to see each other again, but a year later they are face to face again.  Their reunion is full of humor and heart – and this is a wonderful quick read and memorable romance.  In addition to the love story, this book is a wonderful depiction of real life and the surprises that come along the way.  Jobs, families, traditions, crossroads… all the things people must face while going through the different seasons of life.

The fictional setting of Twilight, TX is a major component of the series’ charm.  The location is perfect for the contemporary romances, and the residents bring the stories to life.  If you have read previous books in this series, you will love revisiting the town and those living in it.  If this is your first experience with Twilight, TX, you will want more – and you will love it all!
