Lawyer Forbes Guidry wants nothing more than to stand up for the endangered local-business owners—but it will mean risking his job and crossing his powerful parents. Can Alaine and Forbes make “A Case for Love”? My rating: 3 of 5 starsKaye Dacus has a way with storytelling that I really enjoy. With that said, I was not quite a fan of this book.

Stand-In Groom by Kaye Dacus Get ready to attend the quirkiest wedding ever in this delightful romance by Kaye Dacus, a new voice in women’s contemporary fiction. When wedding planner Anne Hawthorne first meets George Laurence, she thinks she’s found the man of her dreams.
