Love on a Whim by Suzanne Woods Fisher ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

Book Three in the Cape Cod Creamery series takes us back to Cape Cod in the middle of summer heat and 4th of July celebrations.  It took me a few pages to remember who was married to who and what their professions but this book would be fine to read as a standalone.

Brynn, an ultra-organized engineer is in Las Vegas for a convention.  While there she does something totally out of character - she meets a man at the convention, leaves the convention behind, and goes with him to explore Hoover Dam.  They had a lot to talk about and ended up getting married in a small chapel.  When she wakes the next morning and is appalled by her behavior, she sneaks out of the room and heads to Cap Code so that her best friend can help her work through this mess.  Dawn has always been there for her best friend and decides to hire an attorney to get the marriage annulled.  But is that what Brynn really wants or was marrying someone in 24 hours the fact that she listened to her heart instead of her brain.  Dawn is ready to fight all of Brynn's dragons - whether Brynn wants them fought or accepted.

When she arrives in Cape Cod, there is a lot going on.  It's July and the tourists are packed into the small town so the ice cream shop is always packed.  It all gets worse when Linc (the boyfriend of the owner of the ice cream shop and Dawn's mother) agrees to have his daughter's wedding at his home. Linc was a terrible dad, is really estranged from his 2 children, and hopes that agreeing to the wedding will end some of the resentment they have for him.  But things get worse - the caterer and all of her staff come down with Covid.  Linc calls on his friends to help cater and Brynn ends up agreeing to make the wedding cake and remembers how much she enjoyed baking - even more than her job as an engineer.  At least spending her time baking took her mind off of her Las Vegas wedding.  But the memory of him is still in her mind and she begins to wonder how they would feel about each other if they met again.  But how can they meet again since they don't even have contact information for each other?   Bryann has a lot of decisions to make in her life -- will she make her decisions with her heart or her head??

I really enjoyed this book.  I read book 1 in the series and missed book 2 so I just ordered book 2 so I can answer a few small questions that came up during this book.  Nothing major is missed by reading this as a standalone but I still want to read the entire series.  Read my review of book 1 The Sweet Life.

This book is a nice light romance that can easily be read in a day.  The characters are well written and the plot is full of twists and turns with a lot of help from prayer.
