Every woman has a "I am bad" side, for some it is rather mild but for others it can get pretty much very out of control. And in the end they are left with a huge mess that does not seem is ever going to go away. So the key of course might be to stay good and far away from bad, but we all know there is NO fun in that, as the song goes Girls just wanna have FUN! In the new Heidi Rice read we meet Gina, she can be bad and I do mean very bad, so bad in fact that she will sleep with about to get m

Maid of Dishonour, or Why to Fall for Southern Charm

Secret affairs and dark pasts always make for gripping reading, so revisiting an affair that went wrong sounds like the perfect plot for the third in the series. The whole Gina-Carter thing had been hinted at and set up in the previous two books (The Unexpected Wedding Guest and Girl Least Likely to Marry) so I’d been dying to find out what had happened. And when it did I was torn. Torn between Gina, who was reacting to Carter’s rejection, and Marnie, Carter’s sister who lashed out the only way she knew how. Neither Gina nor Carter are anywhere near perfect, but boy do they have some perfect chemistry! That reunion night was steaming to the point where I may have had to take a breather due to commuting at the time. I also liked the fact that he tried to take some of the burden from Gina about their past; it takes two to tango and he admitted that. But when Carter sweeps her away to do the marketing for his business, and hits her full on with that Southern charm, it takes off. The unravelling of their past and the building of their future, intertwined with the thread of concern about how Marnie will react, was gripping and charming. Being a Wedding Season Quartet book, I love how the pinnacle of each novel seems to tie in with a different wedding. And I was really impressed with the way that Heidi Rice is happy to leave certain storylines untied – it makes the link between her book and Kimberley Lang’s (and more importantly between Gina and Carter’s sister Marnie) even stronger. I literally devoured this and then immediately pounced on Last Groom Standing.
