Maybe I Do

A Whiskey and Weddings Novel, #1

Charlotte is a successful businesswoman who is one of the more sought after wedding photographers in the business. She may be cynical about love but she is the best at capturing it. Dean is a co-owner of a successful bar/brewery along with two of his friends. They became more popular when they opened their large room for wedding receptions. Now they are always busy. But Dean doesn't mind too much, not when a certain photographer is there. And when he has to plan his sister's wedding, he knows just the person to ask for help, but because she is younger and works with him on weddings, he is determined to keep his distance, no matter how tempting she is.

This is a nice cozy romance. The build-up of tension both before the start of the story and during their time working close together is perfect. They both are jaded and both don't believe in love, but the desire between them has other ideas. I like how the romance is slow to build and has bumps along the way. And I always enjoy when the characters are flawed and I can sympathize with them. The secondary characters are three dimensional and have their own personalities, which is refreshing. I get tired of having background characters who are basically props that are their to say specific thing in a cliche' way. It's nice that they have plans and schemes and flaws and lives of their own off-screen if you will. It makes this world and the story feel more real.
