Avery Crosslin is a talented young fashion designer with a bright future ahead of her. But when the company goes into liquidation, Avery finds herself without a job and a boyfriend who decides to leave her. When her father falls ill, Avery is by his side day and night. But one evening she notices a young man, Joe, in distress and offers to help. Their instant attraction to one another is magnetic but even though she is unexpectedly charmed by the good-looking stranger, Avery tells him that she has to leave. He asks for her name and number, but she lies and tells him she has a boyfriend. At this point in Avery's life, the last thing she wants or needs is more complications. The next day, as Avery returns to the hospital to thank the nurses for taking such good care of her father at the end of his life, one of them gives her an envelope from Joe. It is addressed to Brown-Eyed Girl. Avery knows she wants to see Joe again but she faces a dilemma. When she learns that Joe is the man responsible for her father's death she is troubled. Is there any hope of a future for them both?

I am a little confused with the synopsis of this book. I thought I already read it it based on Avery Crosslin, but then when I read about the sick father and the man who was responsible, I knew I hadn't read that story. I just got it from the library and read the back synopsis. I did read it! It's about wedding planner AVERY CROSSLIN who meets JOE TRAVIS THE PHOTOGRAPHER. A LITTLE DISSAPOINTING...

I love Lisa Kleypas, but I didn't like this one as much as the first three in the series. No need to read them in order, which is a good thing because I couldn't even remember what happened in the other stories. For some reason I kept thinking about Nora Roberts' Brides series. Usually I'm all over anything to do with wedding planning but this one just didn't have it.

Avery was an everyday type of character who meets prince charming. Will she let her past get in the way of keeping a good man?

I enjoy this author and the Travis family books. The previous books were better. This completes the series but was just ok. I was a bit disappointed.
Overall I recommend the series.

I love love love Kleypas's other Travis novels - Blue-Eyed Devil may be one of my favorite romances ever - so I was a little nervous about her revisiting the clan after several years away. I needn't have worried, as this is everything I've come to expect from the series: smart, love-cynical, professionally competent but romantically incompetent heroine narrator; over-the-top masculine hero just short of alpha-hole; tons of family togetherness (so many babies in this one!); banter that sings; and just general lovely hotness. There's enough back story to start on the series with this one, but only if you promise to go back and read the rest.

What a fun book!!!!! I loved the characters and their funny ways of showing each other up. Avery was such a comical character in this book. Loved it!!!!!

I had the pleasure of reading an advanced reader copy of this book. I really enjoyed it - I loved the humour, the sexiness, great characterizations and sense of place, all trademark Kleypas. Avery is the consummate wedding planner and if you love wedding and design shows, this book is a treat! Lots of appearances from characters from the earlier Travis books, but to be honest I found it a bit much, and detracted from Joe and Avery's story. All in all a lovely, romantic read.
