Famous Bull Rider Dallas Day met Cassie Bailey briefly in high school, but her plain looks and quiet personality left no lasting impression on him. Cassie, however, couldn’t say the same about Dallas.
Their paths cross again ten years later when Dallas is home recovering from an injury, and Cassie is the only veterinarian who volunteers her services at the home-town rodeo. She’s jump-starting her new practice, and every eligible man within a ten-mile radius is trying to land a date with the attractive vet.
Dallas’ older brother bets him that, even with all his charm and fame, Dallas can’t land a date with the reserved lady vet. Not one to turn down a challenge, Dallas makes it his mission to win a date with Cassie. After seeing her, he realizes they’ve met before, but he doesn’t remember her being so pretty. His persistence pays off, but when Cassie finds out about the bet, their new love is put to the test.
Determined to win her back, Dallas meets his biggest challenge yet: saving her life when a casual admirer turns into a deadly stalker.
With a mix of romance, mystery, humor, the cast of characters in this novel entertain from the first page to the last page. I love novels set in small towns, and add in the setting of a hometown state fair, and it’s even better. The descriptions of the scenery and action make you feel as though you are there with the characters and by the end, you wish you could live in Frisbee, too—especially if you could have the fun-loving, dancing, owner of A La Mode, Eloise for a landlord.
Wedding Day is well-written. Told in both Dallas and Cassie’s POV, the shifts are flowing and add to the ease of this sweet, closed-door romance. It’s fast pace, it perfect for a light, quick read, and yet, when you get to the end, you can’t help but want it to keep going.
I love when I can find an author with sweet romances that focus on story rather than just sex, sex, and more sex. Life isn’t just that, so I don’t think a novel should be either. Mrs. Bevan is a gem, and I look forward to more from her.
