the bride's baby

The wedding of the season!

Events manager Sylvie Smith is organizing a glittering fund-raising event: a wedding show in a stately home. She has even been roped into pretending to be a bride…a bride who’s five months pregnant!

The bride everyone is talking about!

It should be every girl’s dream to design a wedding with no expense spared, but it’s not Sylvie’s. Longbourne Court was her ancestral home, and she’s just discovered that the new owner is Tom McFarlane—her baby’s secret father. Now Tom’s standing in front of her, looking at her bump…

Sylvie Smith, wedding planner extraordinaire, is talked into planning the wedding of her old school friend Candy to billionaire Tom McFarlane. Three days before the wedding Candy runs off with Sylvie’s employee. After meeting, Tom and Sylvie have sex and Sylvie ends up pregnant.

I really enjoyed the characters in this book. Sylvie and Tom were both nice people who were easy to like. The problem I had with this book is that the whole book is based around a series of misunderstandings. After Sylvie realizes that she’s pregnant, she writes Tom a letter in which she tells him if he never wants anything to do with them he doesn’t have to respond. Tom runs away for six months. During the time he is away he sees a picture of pregnant Sylvie with her ex and assumes it’s his baby. When Tom finally gets back in the country, Sylvie is doing a magazine spread for a wedding fair that Tom assumes is for her own wedding.

All of these silly problems could be taken care of with one frank conversation that doesn’t take place till the end of the book.
