Bolted - Meg Benjamin

Bolted is the second book in the Promise Harbor Wedding quartet from Samhain (following Kelly Jamieson's Jilted and followed by Sydney Somers's Busted and Erin Nicholas's Hitched). The series was a lot of fun and a lot of hard work since the four stories take place simultaneously rather than sequentially. That meant we all had to coordinate our descriptions of characters and scenes that take place in all four books, like the wedding scene that appears at the beginning of all four. But it also meant we could share ideas and excitement. Here's the blurb for Bolted:

Sometimes you have to get lost before you can find yourself.

The Promise Harbor Wedding, Book 2

Greta Brewster McBain in a bind. Two, if she’s really counting. First there’s the can-barely-breathe, bridesmaid’s dress from hell. Second, the stranger who just carried her “perfect” brother’s fiancĂ©e out the church door has made it impossible to tell her own mother about her own divorce.

Rather than confirm her reputation as the family screw-up, Greta takes a drive to clear her head.

Trapped in a hole and unable to reach his cell phone, Hank Mitchell is resigned to becoming a permanent part of his own archeological dig when help arrives—in the form of a woman who looks like a Gone With The Wind refugee. Behind the ruffles and lace, though, is something he appreciates: a woman who isn’t afraid of a little dirt.

Their instant connection draws Greta into the eccentric world of the Hotel Grand, where she impulsively trades her hoopskirts for an apron. Soon things are getting hot, not only in the hotel kitchen, but in Hank’s arms...

Warning: Contains hot moonlit sex, a melancholy turtle, two wisecracking seniors, and the world’s ugliest bridesmaid dress.
