❤ Close friends . . . a secret crush ❤
It was his sister’s wedding, but Max Trevetti’s eyes weren’t focused on the bride.
Growing up in small-town Tobias, Wisconsin, Max helped raise his little sister Annette, and was a surrogate big brother to her best friend, Suzanna Grant. Suz always had a secret crush on her best friend's brother, but she would never have thought Max actually saw her as more than a friend.
Except now Max can’t keep his eyes off her. That stunning red dress. Her smile.
When the wedding celebration leads to unexpected passion, neither knows what happens next … especially when they’re constantly thrown together trying to save historic Bliss House for eccentric, meddling Miss Trudi.
Was it just a fling, or will this wedding plant the seed for their own? Find out in this heartfelt Midwestern romantic comedy.
Love feel-good, small-town romantic comedy (with a few tears)? Dive into heartfelt, passionate, small-town contemporary romance in The Unexpected Wedding Guest, Book 2 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's Marry Me series.
