    Traffic reporter Kate Covington flies from Omaha to Las Vegas to stop the man she loves from getting married Only she disrupts the wrong wedding When the bride storms off, the desperate groom convinces Kate to step in so he can inherit a fortune.Kate Covington is an endearing character with a touching back story Her seemingly insane behavior comes from a place of vulnerability She s suffered so much loss that she s reluctant to risk her friendship with Brian by declaring her love for him Ye Traffic reporter Kate Covington flies from Omaha to Las Vegas to stop the man she loves from getting married Only she disrupts the wrong wedding When the bride storms off, the desperate groom convinces Kate to step in so he can inherit a fortune.Kate Covington is an endearing character with a touching back story Her seemingly insane behavior comes from a place of vulnerability She s suffered so much loss that she s reluctant to risk her friendship with Brian by declaring her love for him Yet, she can t miss out on what she sees as her shot at true love Chad Leida is a very different sort of personality confident, decisive He s not afraid of challenging his powerful parents, but he does need access to his trust fund to finance his dream opening a horse ranch that serves disadvantaged children.The chemistry between these two characters crackles But they also complement each other Kate shows Chad that emotional intimacy doesn t equal weakness And by exposing her to his crazy, paparazzi filled world, he helps Kate develop inner confidence and a clearer direction in life.Williams does an equally good job with most her secondary characters, though I found Brian a bit bland I couldn t quite see why Kate was so taken with him Also, Ida, who comes to Kate s rescue at her lowest point, is on and off stage in a blink I think she should have been introduced earlier, so that her help didn t seem so convenient The second half of the novel is not quite as well developed as the first half There are a few too many coincidences like Ida appearing just when needed and the perfect job opening popping up for unemployed Kate Another ten to fifteen pages would have helped round out the narrative However, there were plenty of unexpected plot twists that left me surprised and excited A happy ending isn t a given for Kate and Chad They both have to work hard for it and take some risks.Wrong Place, Right Time is part of The Writers Coffee Shop s Afternoon Delight line, and that s exactly how I d characterize this romance It s a quick, fun read that leaves a smile on your face

    Kate is hopelessly in love with her co worker She goes to Vegas to stop the wedding but interrupts the wrong one Instead she ends up married to Chad The situation getscomplicated than it seems on the surface and you wonder how they can end up happy We only see Kate s POV so we don t know what Chad is thinking I wished there was a littleto it because I didn t want it to be over so soon Perfect for a quick romance fix.

    Review It is really hard to find out that someone you care for cares for someone else Kate has to confront this head on and she does so in what is a most drastic way endeavoring to interrupt a wedding.That she succeeds in interrupting the wrong wedding is the impetus behind this short story.I have to give Our Heroine props for courage and enthusiasm as she embarks upon this adventure She is brave enough to pursue the man she loves, then is gutsy enough listen to a quick proposition from a man Review It is really hard to find out that someone you care for cares for someone else Kate has to confront this head on and she does so in what is a most drastic way endeavoring to interrupt a wedding.That she succeeds in interrupting the wrong wedding is the impetus behind this short story.I have to give Our Heroine props for courage and enthusiasm as she embarks upon this adventure She is brave enough to pursue the man she loves, then is gutsy enough listen to a quick proposition from a man who seems like the answer to a much different problem and she s willing to go along with it, showing a public smile to cover her private concerns and nerves.Twists abound, however, even after Kate ties the knot in Vegas with Our Hero, the wealthy Chad Leida He kind of drags her from pillar to post, not always telling her what s happening as the news of their marriage hits the media This was irksome He does, though, settle down to a sincere sort of fellow and Kate can t help but find herself responding.Which is all we need for a sweet compelled romance short story, right But wait, there sAndI can t really tell you what thatis without spoiling all the twists that author Brooke Williams has prepared for you Sorry What I can say is this I think that this story deservedair time than it got, here We get a glance at a romance in the making with Kate and Chad, a glance at a relationship that might have been with Kate s original love object, Brian, and glimpses of some interesting secondary characters like the in laws Kate had a lot to do in this story and, as Chad does in the story itself, she drags us back and forth as she hits all the major plot points.What is satisfying is that Brooke Williams doesn t leave us with a predictable story She lets Kate explore the workings of her heart, and lets her experience highs and lows as consequences of her choices We also have characters who aren t perfect and I really appreciate imperfect people as protagonists So I m grateful to the author for giving them to us in this Cinderella interrupted tale.If you re looking for a sweet story this holiday season, an eStocking Stuffer perhaps, this does fit the bill And perhaps you, like me, will want to readof the author s work to follow her active imagination in a longer format Wrong Place, Right Time is available in the following electronic formats Kindle, iBooks, Kobo, Nook, and of course from The Writer s Coffee Shop Publishing House

    I was not sure what to expect out of these characters, or this book When you start a book with a love triangle, it is hard to not choose who you want the character to end up with I was pulled into the book pretty quickly The interaction between Chad and Kate was definitely mysterious Chad kept Kate on her toes, and yet even pampered her right away Chad is everything a hero should be He is sweet, sincere, good looking, and honest in his approach Right from the beginning he makes Kate feel I was not sure what to expect out of these characters, or this book When you start a book with a love triangle, it is hard to not choose who you want the character to end up with I was pulled into the book pretty quickly The interaction between Chad and Kate was definitely mysterious Chad kept Kate on her toes, and yet even pampered her right away Chad is everything a hero should be He is sweet, sincere, good looking, and honest in his approach Right from the beginning he makes Kate feel safe and cared for Something she has not felt in a good while.Then. there is Brian Kate believes the true friendship between them is love, and wants to know is he feels the same deep down too.Brian helps Kate feel good about herself Is it enough to believe that is love he feels for her also I was pleasantly surprised this book has a magical feel to it The story moves along at a good pace, the characters are easy to believe, and for me a BIG winner for the book no foul language.The story made me feel all the good feels, I laughed, I cried and I chose my OTP even though I told myself I wouldn t and it had a great ending too I received this ARC copy free from Netgalley.com in exchange for review purposes This did not influence my opinion of author, nor book
