How do you Read a Series? by Fiona Lowe

My first series is completely out in the world! Runaway Groom, book three of the Wedding Fever series of books (Carina Press) was released last Monday. All three books are set in the fictitious but loveable town of Whitetail, Wisconsin; a small town with a big heart. A small town with a cast of characters who, over the three books have had their story told. Oh how I have loved spending time  in Whitetail and I'm a bit sad to leave it!

My long contemporary novels (99,000 words) always feature a primary and a secondary romance ... a two for one deal ;-) so I was able to give the wedding planner, the dress shop owner and the cake decorator their own HEAs!

Saved By the Bride introduces Whitetail, a town on the verge of collapse and the townsfolk who truly believe that a wedding business is going to save them. All the town people you meet in the first book have their stories told in Picture Perfect Wedding and Runaway Groom.

You know how you do something so you assume everyone else does it the same way? Well, I got a surprise with this series. When I read a series, I read it as the books are released. However, I have discovered that many of you like to wait until all of the books in the series are released so you can read them bang, bang bang. Who knew? ;-)

So for all of you who have been waiting  to do just that with Wedding Fever, now is the time!

I'd love to know how you read a series....

So what are the Wedding Fever books about?

Saved by The Bride (Bk 1)

Welcome to Whitetail, Wisconsin, future home of Weddings that WOW! 

As acting mayor, Annika will do anything to revive the economy of the town that's been her refuge ever since her art career imploded and her fiancĂ© walked out. Even if it means crashing an engagement party to talk business with the bride's billionaire father. But the evening starts with a kiss from a gorgeous stranger—and ends with a night in jail.
Finn Callahan can't believe his sister is getting married, not after their parents' disastrous track record. And he'd rather be anywhere than working from his family's vacation home. Until he catches a leggy blonde sneaking in the window, and suddenly telecommuting for the season is very appealing.
Unable to resist their mutual attraction, Annika and Finn are soon mixing business and pleasure—just for the summer. Too bad Annika's heart missed the memo about not falling in love…
Book one of Wedding Fever.

Picture Perfect Wedding (Bk 2)

Erin Davis will do whatever it takes to be the photographer for high-end brides. So what if capturing the moments of people's lives means she has no time for her own. Nothing will get between her and the security she craves, not even the gorgeous farmer refusing to let her shoot in his sunflowers.
His family has always been tied to the land, but lately Luke Anderson feels more like he's chained. While he ponders his future, he still has cows to milk and no time to deal with Erin or Bridezillas in his fields. Yet there's something about the sexy city girl he can't say no to. So he says yes: just this once.
With the town in need of a photographer, Erin agrees to spend wedding season in Whitetail. The sparks flying between her and Luke quickly ignite, but just as Erin starts to picture her own happy ending, Luke takes a gamble that could risk it all…

Runaway Groom (Bk 3)

Amy Sagar's life is in ruins. Fired from her fast-track job and dumped by her double-crossing
boyfriend, she retreats to Whitetail, Wisconsin, to lick her wounds and regroup. Meeting an impossible, sexy Australian isn't part of her strategy for getting back on track.
Ben Armytage is running away. After being left at the altar and publicly humiliated, he's taking his vintage motorcycle on an extended road trip from Argentina to Alaska. Having his journey interrupted by a breakdown and sharing a house with a curvy, redheaded lawyer in a town obsessed with weddings was never on his itinerary.
Though being stuck in a luxury log cabin isn't really a hardship, living together with their broken hearts isn't easy. When the attraction between Amy and Ben proves unstoppable, they'll both begin rethinking their plans…
