From Publishers Weekly
Sydney Spinelli, an uptight accountant from New Jersey, has never been in love. She doesn't believe in making impulsive decisions, so when her flighty sister, Julia, announces that she's marrying her boyfriend of only one month, Sydney rushes to Texas to stop her. However, as soon as she meets Alex, the charming best friend of Julia's fiancé, her plans begin to unravel and she finds herself unwillingly falling in love. The premise that a grown woman would go to such extremes to prevent a sister's wedding-Sydney even steals the engagement ring to prove it's fake-is almost irredeemably ridiculous, and the author's habit of inflicting exaggerated accents on her characters (Sydney's fathers asks, "You heah from dat useless sistah o' yours?") is also distracting. Its many flaws, though, don't spoil this lighthearted comedy completely. The snappy talk keeps the plot in constant motion, and Alex's struggle to deal with his mother's Alzheimer's adds some much needed emotional depth to this otherwise shallow story. Readers looking for an absorbing romance will be disappointed, but this breezy novel may satisfy those wanting something fun and mindless to read on the beach.

RABCK on the way to TBlack44! Happy Reading!
This wasn't on your bookshelf and since I was sending you the 2nd book in the series, I thought I'd include the first one.

This book is HYSTERICAL! One of my favorite series is Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. Her style of writing make me laugh-out-loud while reading her bokos and Stephanie is easy to relate to. I felt the same way while reading this book! So...I am off to read the next one in the series, First Kiss.
