Runaway Bride is one of the sweetest and funniest books I have read in a good long while. I love the main female character and her determination to find what she wants most in this world. To know beyond a shadow of a doubt what it is that will make you happy and be willing to do what it takes to get it, is amazing nowadays. Most people I know have no clue what will honestly make them happy. People seem to believe that money and a career is all that it takes, when more often than not, if you find the right person and work at it, married is a wonderful place to be. I hope you enjoy reading a Runaway Bride as much as I did.
