The Wedding Date By Christie Ridgway

     This was a fun little book I read during the Christmas holidays.  I had been watching The Wedding Date, the movie, with Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney and thought I would like to read the book.  So, I got on Amazon to find it and found there are a few books with that title. This one I could get on my kindle, so I bought it. Let me make this clear, this is a different story, NOT the story from the movie.
     Trick Webster, while walking on the beach, finds a bottle with a note in it. The message is to Poseidon asking him for the perfect man, tall, blond and handsome. It is signed Emma. Far from feeling like the “perfect” man, Trick is disappointed in the “shopping list” of a perfect man. Still, he is intrigued enough to look around on the beach and see if he can find Emma.
     Emma needs a date to her ex-fiancé’s wedding, who is going to marry her boss's daughter. To save face, Emma has been telling everyone at the office she is dating the perfect man. Now she just needs to find him! Trick finds her sitting on the beach, after spending the day before looking for her.
     Both, having been hurt by love before, are not looking for love and are leery of it. As they get to know each other, can they keep this strictly business?
     Emma is so cute! I love how she thinks Trick is unemployed and in need of a job, when he is actually wealthy and doesn't need to work! And Emma drives Trick crazy! He is so attracted to her but thinks she’ll be just like his ex-fiancé and will find him not "perfect.”
     It’s a fun, quick read! I loved it. 

     I'd love to hear what you think! Please, leave a comment!


  1. This sounds like a cute, fun read!

    I haven't seen that movie, but it always is smiling at me from the library shelf, haha...

  2. It was, Rebecca! I really enjoyed it.

    I can't believe you haven't seen the movie! It is a different story but it's still really good. In that one, she hires an escort to go to the wedding with her. They fly over to England together.

  3. Candy, this book does sound like a fun, quick read. Maybe I will save this for the summer and add it to my summer reading list! :)
