Once Smitten, Twice Shy is the second book in the Wedding Veil Wishes series. I haven't read the first one and you don't have to in order to read this book.
Wedding videographer Tish Gallagher is in debt, alone and trying to get her business off the ground. When a business meeting goes belly up with her credit card being cut up in front of a potential client, she is driven to wish on an antique wedding veil. What is revealed to her is her ex-husband Shane Treamont. When Tish gets offered the job to film the President's daughter's wedding it is obvious that the wedding veil works but is it a case of be careful what you wish for? Of course it is, since the groom is none other than her ex.
This was a fine story. I didn't know if I really liked Tish at first since I didn't understand going into debt buying shoes and clothes. Fortunately, Ms. Wilde gave all her characters reasons for the things they do. I really liked that about the story. Everyone had hidden pains that made you care about the characters. I enjoyed taking a trip down memory lane so you can see how Tish and Shane came together and how they ended up divorced. If you enjoy contemporary romance, this is nice choice to while away an afternoon with.
Legend claims this antique Irish wedding veil can grant your heart's deepest desire. But be careful what you wish for.
Wedding videographer Tish Gallagher is at the end of her rope. Her video business is about to go bust. She's just spent her last buck on non-returnable (but oh so fabulous) shoes. And her most sustainable relationship is with a pint of Haagen-Dazs. So she makes a wish on the lucky wedding veil to get out of debt.and sees the man she never stopped loving, her ex-husband, secret service agent Shane Tremont. Sure, their chemistry was off-the-charts sizzling hot, but their clashes were legendary and no amount of longing will change that.
So when her dream job of recording the first daughter's wedding appears out of the blue, Tish knows it's her only shot to get out of the red. Just one teensy glitch: Shane is the groom. From the moment they see each other, she knows nothing's changed-the same old black magic is still between them, just as irresistible and potent as ever. But he's promised to another and Tish has been burned before. Will she always be.
