Alice Cramer is tired of being pitied for her family’s transgressions, so she resolves to break out of the gutter and into the spotlight. As long as her local congressman can forget about their checkered past and help her secure a federal grant to open Harmony Falls Little Theatre, she’ll be the brightest star in town. But when Alice stands up in church and stops the congressman’s wedding, she dives headfirst into fresh scandal.
Why is Harmony Fall’s golden boy, Justin Mitchell, speeding down the interstate sans a new wife but with the local drama queen he’s been trying his whole life to avoid? Alice Cramer may have saved him the hassle of an arranged marriage to a woman he didn’t love, but she’s also put a business transaction big enough to save an entire town in jeopardy - not to mention his reputation.
Soon Alice and Justin are dredging up and indulging in an attraction that threatens all their dreams and aspirations. But what if life together is the dream that matters most?

Anna’s Review

It took me a while to like the Alice and Justin characters and maybe it was the fault of the plot itself.  I had trouble accepting the idea of an arranged marriage in the 21st century and I found the idea of Alice being from a “bad” family a little tired.  It just wasn’t working for me.  So I really struggled with the first part of this book.

However, Justin’s transformation pulled me in and saved the story.  He comes to realize after Alice crashes his Wedding that his life has been going in the wrong direction and quickly starts making changes.   I was still frustrated with Alice’s character, I felt she really never believed she was “good enough” and was too bogged down in what the town thought of her.  Despite these flaws, Justin and Alice romance was charming and I was glad to see to them both realize that life is so much simpler when you let yourself be happy.

If you’re looking for a sweet romance about the one who got away, check out Crashing the Congressman’s Wedding.
