In the book See Bride Run! By Charlotte Hughes you meet Atlanta’s Iron and Steel billionaire heiress Annie Hartford. She has no desire to marry a man she does not love, which is where the runaway bride part comes in. Annie’s very controlling father has been calling the shots her entire life but this time he has pushed her too far that she hijacks the family limo, only to have it break down in small town Pinckney, Georgia. Then Annie meets small town lawyer and restaurant owner Sam Ballard who has been unlucky in love as well with his own runaway bride. So the last thing he expects is Annie coming into town in a short waitress uniform and breaking every dish in his Dixieland Café since she only graduated high school and then finishing school. Still, he can’t very well fire her because she has won the hearts of everyone in town and he starts to fall in love with her but he doesn’t know if she will stay or go running back to her rich father.

The first sentence of the book is “The Wedding had the makings of a Fairytale.” I knew that this would not be a fairytale wedding because the title of the book is See Bride Run! Which is a dead giveaway that at least the first wedding will not be happening. Annie seems like a young woman who has had her entire life mapped out for her by her very controlling and rich father. She has been the good obedient daughter who listened to her father especially after her twin brother was killed in an automobile accident. I could relate a bit with her since at first I didn’t know what to do with my life after high school but it wasn’t until I got out into the world that I knew I needed to go back to school and find a career that I can love. When Annie first meets Sam after first arriving at Pinckney they didn’t know what to do with the attraction that they initially felt for one another. It was fun watching how they slowly got to know one another while trying not to fall in love since they both have had bad luck with love in the past. As I was reading the book there were a few punctuation mistakes that kind of distracted me from some of the story though I was able to get past them because the relationship that Hughes was slowly building between Annie and Sam had me turning the pages to find out what would they both do next. 

Reading Annie and Sam’s journey to finally finding the love that they both have wanted but seemed like they might never have it was a bit slow with some pit stops of misunderstandings and getting to know one another while having the whole town interfering. I felt that this book was a fun and exciting romance novel that had me from the very first sentence. I especially loved the epilogue because she left me feeling fully satisfied with how Annie and Sam’s romance ended without leaving me feeling like there was something missing which has happened sometimes when I’ve read a romance novel. I’ve read Hughes’ Kate Holly Crazy series books and when she went on a break from publishing new books I’ve always kept an eye out for when she would finally publish something new. So when I got a message from her that she had a new release and wanted to know if I would like to review the book. I obviously said yes because I knew she would deliver a good romantic read for me and that is why I give this book 4 Open Books.

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
