Marriage on Her Mind
Harlequin American, Oct 2007, $4.99
Although she has doubts, Casey Jernigan leaves Chicago for Crested Butte, Colorado where she will work as the assistant director of marketing for the local chamber of commerce. Her family is appalled with her decision especially since she jilted her groom whom she had been marrying to please everyone but herself. When she arrives at her new home, she meets her landlord, mountain man Max Overbridge, who is nothing like the social butterflies she dated back home.
Max and Casey are attracted to one another and both like the fact that neither wants a commitment. As they fall in love, he helps her come to grips with her understanding it is her life that she only has one time to enjoy. Now she must help him understand that he is the one life that would enable her to enjoy her life completely.
This lighthearted romantic romp contains two likable protagonists and an underlying message that you only have one chance at life. The story line is fun although Casey adjusts too easily to the rural Rockies after living by the urban Great Lakes. Still fans will enjoy her escapades as she goes from a fling to MARRIAGE ON HER MIND forever with her mountain hunk.
