Stand-In Groom by Kaye Dacus

This may be the first Christian Romance I've read and I enjoyed it very much. The characters were engaging and believable and the storyline moved along quite well. It is set in Bonneterre, Louisiana and sprinkled with little bits of cajun and creole spice.

Anne is a strong, independent woman who has survived the loss of her parents at an early age, and then the loss of her first love when a young woman. Although she was raised in a strong and loving extended family with a faithful reliance on God, these events colour her perspective on relationships. Despite these trials, Anne has become a successful wedding planner whose abilities are becoming known to the rich and famous. Enter the Bride-to-be and the Stand-In Groom and our story begins.

What follows is a heart-warming story of faith and love. I definitely recommend this book to lovers of romance novels!

Well this sounds like a nice book. I have read a couple by Karen Kingsbury that I have enjoyed.
