Another five star review for He's Married!


When Eloise has the wedding of her dreams, her fears travel to the forefront. The wedding
night is upon her and she has reservations. She realizes in their haste to get married, she doesn't really know her husband, Dane. She's got some issues and probably shouldn't have waited till the wedding night to address them. She has a secret and she should've given Dane the choice to marry her or not if he knew.

As they embark on their honeymoon, the couple is broken when a secret of Dane's is exposed. Eloise can handle most things, but this rocks her trust abilities to the core. How is she supposed to handle the fact that Dane is married!

He's Married is book two in the Bridesmaids, Weddings, and Honeymoons series by Maggie Tideswell. I loved book one and book two just carries on! Maggie is so creative with her writing and I especially loved the ghosts aspect that she weaves throughout! Eloise doesn't know what to believe. I wish she would've just took a step back and listened to Dane. Unfortunately Dane was also at a loss as to how to deal with this situation. We are guessing what and how this happened with the subtle clues we are given. When the big reveal takes place, my mouth was hanging open! I can't give you any more than that but I certainly was surprised!

I highly recommend He's Married as well as the Bridesmaids, Weddings, and Honeymoons series. Maggie has created quite a series and I can not wait for the next book!

4.5 stars/ 3 flames

Wacky Weddings - the search continues

How popular are themed weddings really?

In my book, The Run-Away Couple, the wedding is a Gothic theme, and I asked the question how popular wacky wedding themes really are. All weddings have a theme, ranging from 'Country' to 'Vineyards' and these have to do with the color schemes, types of flowers, style of wedding dress etc.

But what about more weird themes?

In a previous post we had a few weird ones, including a very classy Gothic wedding. But I still haven't found the ultimate wacky wedding. So I continued searching.

And this was what I found. Here are 60 wacky wedding ideas that range from nude nuptials to double wedding dress weddings to getting married at 1000feet standing on top of the aircraft to social reality weddings (is that legal?) http://www.trendhunter.com/slideshow/wacky-wedding-ideas

Here's a wedding at the North Pole, of all places. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/16/north-pole-wedding_n_1428946.html

BUNGEE/PLUNGE -Who wants to jump off a bridge while saying 'I do'? Or promise to 'love you forever' on a roller coaster? Would you take a naked groom promising to be 'faithful forever' seriously when everybody can see his unmentionables? http://www.therichest.com/rich-list/most-shocking/13-most-bizarre-and-unusual-wedding-themes/6/

I think people are trying too hard to stand out and they take things a bit far. A lot of these people lose sight of what is important on the wedding day, namely the celebration of the love between two people who want to spend the rest of their lives with each other.

But it's your special day to enjoy in any way you want. And the wackier, the better your day will be remembered, that's for sure.

So, whatever blows your skirt up on your wedding day!

5* Review - He's Married

Sharon Pollock (left) read He's Married and gave it a 5 star review! Thank you, Sharon.

This is what Sharon said about He's Married

He's Married is the sequel to The Runaway-Couple and we pick up our gorgeous couple Eloise and Dane when all the guests have gone and they are off on their honeymoon. What starts out as a romantic get away soon turns sour when Dane gets an unexpected call.

What could possibly send Eloise fleeing home?

In true Maggie Tideswell style, she has woven a beautifully romantic story with just enough paranormal thrown in to keep the reader engaged. It is fast paced and the characters are so beautifully developed, you feel their pain, and heartache and happiness.

Just when the reader thinks they have figured out just what is going on, the author throws another twist into the mix and you are back at square one wondering what is going to happen next.

This is a wonderfully well written story that draws the reader into it, and I can guarantee readers they won't be disappointed.
