Thoroughly enjoyable story.
For the reader who enjoys The Bachelor and other reality television shows, this is the love story for you. Of course, the winner's prize in this story is you get to marry a billionaire or you get $25,000.
Chris was the poor relation in the extended Anderson family until his rich uncle's family dies in a helicopter crash and Chris inherits the family fortune. Although Chris buys the island resort his parents owned until his father died when Chris was very young, he continues to work as the maintenance man and ignore his fortune.
When Chris' cousin approaches Chris with the idea of the reality show, Chris reluctantly goes along with the plan to get help fixing up the resort and for the publicity. The cousin will be the billionaire bachelor.
Anna's friend signed her up for the show and she is chosen. She agrees to go because her father has been very ill and could use a vacation in the sun. Not to mention the medical bills and having to close their bakery because of lack of funds. Anna doesn't want the husband, but she's happy to compete for the money.
Vacation Bride is a fun read, with well written characters and nice scenery. The twelve bridacudas (well several are nice women) have to compete to stay on the show and the audience gets to vote for their favorites. The competitions are funny because some of the women have the win at all cost attitude.
I was given a copy of Vacation Bride from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
