Against the backdrop of scenic Estes Park, Colorado, comes a story filled with mayhem, romance, and plenty of drama-most of it on the stage.
The year is 1912, and tomboy Lottie Sanders would do just about anything to help the fella she secretly loves. When Gilbert Parker's family lodge faces financial ruin, he suggests putting on a melodrama to draw in a crowd. He appeals to Lottie to direct the show. Her plan to bring in actresses from across the country is sabotaged when the local single men turn it into a hunt for brides. Lottie finds the drama shifting from the stage to real life.
Filled with villains, vixens, heroes, and enough actresses to fill a theater, this quirky melodramatic tale is sure to please lovers of historical romance.
Romantic Comedy at it's best. Has anyone seen those old B&W movies with Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland where a group of 'kids' puts together a show for some worthy cause? Well, Wedding Belles kind of reminds me of that. There's just as much punch and humour and endless mayhem.
I don't think I've met so many lovable, eccentric characters in one book before! And then there's the heroine -- poor Lottie, wearing her heart on her sleeve while Gil, the erstwhile hero, is in complete oblivion. Throw in a passel of actresses, a bevy of lovestruck wannabe beaus, the desperate need to rejuvenate Gil's family's lodge and the stage is set for hours of reading pleasure!
