Her Best Man by Jana Richards @JanaRichards_ #RomCom #Contemporary #HumorousRomance

The Plot:

Sarah Stevens experiences a bride’s worst nightmare: being dumped at the altar. When she goes on the Caribbean cruise meant to be her honeymoon in order to lick her wounds, she discovers her ex-fiancĂ© has sent his brother, Will Marshall, the former best man, on the cruise as well. Everyone on board thinks they’re newlyweds, and Sarah is too embarrassed to set them straight. How is she supposed to share a tiny cabin with a man she barely knows? How is she supposed to pretend she and Will are on their honeymoon? Even worse, how can she keep from falling in love with him? Sarah discovers the best man for her really is the best man.

About the Author:

Jana Richards has tried her hand at many writing projects over the years, from magazine articles and short stories to paranormal suspense and romantic comedy. She loves to create characters with a sense of humor, but also a serious side. She believes there’s nothing more interesting then peeling back the layers of a character to see what makes them tick.

When not writing up a storm, working at her day job as an Office Administrator, or dealing with ever-present mountains of laundry, Jana can be found on the local golf course pursuing her newest hobby.

Jana lives in Western Canada with her husband Warren, and a highly-spoiled Pug/Terrier cross named Lou.

Poor Sarah Stevens—jilted at the author. It’s bad enough when you have to rescind invitations and return gifts from the comfort and relative anonymity of home, but to stand there at the church waiting for her fiancĂ© Brad Marshall to say “I do” only to hear “I can’t do this,”… That’s enough to make a girl want to get out of town awhile.

Will Marshall’s an adventure travel writer recuperating from his latest trip—down the Amazon, and the bug he picked up along the way. His novel is languishing on his laptop, and while home between assignments he serves as his brother, Brad’s, best man. Brad suggests Marshall take his cruise ticket so he can work on his novel aboard ship while Brad grovels at Sarah’s feet trying to get her back. Needless to say, Sarah and Marshall don’t expect to end up sharing a tiny cabin aboard a ship full of people who think they’re newlyweds.

I started laughing on the first page when Sarah’s mother removed her shoe and started whacking Brad with it, chasing him out of the church, wailing about how he’d humiliated her. Even then, Marshall wanted to comfort Sarah rather than his brother, despite the fact he’d only met her at the rehearsal the evening before. Yes, this book, like all of Ms. Richards’ books, comes with a choking warning. Do not eat or drink while reading—you’ll laugh so hard you’ll choke, and liquid will spew out your nose. Buy the book!
