Just read her latest book.

Sigh, she always makes me so happy.

Happy? I'll take some of that.

I enjoyed the sports ones more than I expected since neither golfers nor football players are my thing, but stopped after Honey Moon, didn't like that one. Should I pick her back up?

It nagged him, in particular, that none of the girls he’d known so far had given him a sense of unalloyed triumph.

I didn't like Honey Moon, either.

This was called Call Me Irresitable.


Lucy Jorik is the daughter of the former
President of the United States.

Meg Koranda is the offspring of legends.

One of them is about to marry Mr. Irresistible—Ted Beaudine—the favorite son of Wynette, Texas. The other is not happy about it. Not happy at all....

But even though Meg knows breaking up her best friend’s wedding is the right thing to do, no one else seems to agree. Faster than Lucy can say, “I don’t,” Meg becomes the most hated woman in town. A town where she’s stuck with a dead car, an empty wallet, and a very angry bridegroom.

Broke, stranded, and without her famous parents at her back, Meg is sure she can survive on her own wits. What’s the worst that can happen? Lose her heart to the one and only Mr. Irresistible? Not likely. Not likely at all....

It brings together characters from three different books.
Not three of my favorites but this one worked okay.

Keep in my that I've been sick and I just needed some happy, light
Not a lot of thinking required.
