Cancelled Vows

Imagine going to apply for your marriage license and you find out that you're already married. You find out that you did a little more than gamble during the weekend in Vegas. What now is the question.  That's exactly how the book Cancelled Vows begins.

The Story

I mentioned in the intro how the story begins. David is the main character and he decides that he must go find his wife and get a divorce ASAP. But when David and his best man Mac Faraday arrive in New York, they find that it isn't quite as easy as it seems to get the divorce papers signed. And it might get a little more complicated when a murder occurs.

What I Liked About This Book

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was fun and easy to read. It has that great story combination mystery and romance. It wasn't overly complicated. And it was nice to just read a story that was meant to entertain me. The characters are colorful. I really liked that David had a weekend that he totally forgot about. I can so imagine that happening. The author has taken a situation that we all believe can NEVER happen to us, and shown just how it could happen. And even though I try to stay away from books that are part of a series, this one doesn't require you to read the ones before or after. The story stands on its own. It may help to have read other books in the series so you know the characters a little better, but I didn't feel like I had to read the other books in order to know what was really going on in this story.

Who Should Read This Book

Fans of entertaining murder mysteries will enjoy this book. The author uses a lost weekend to create a mystery. If you want a book that is written simply to entertain you this book is for you. And of course fans of romance will also enjoy this book. I recommend this book to individuals who want a light story to read. 


I did receive a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, but hey you know I would tell you if I didn't like the book.
