Ok, mindless, easy to read, a rather bit overly Trite in some places, Because WE ALL KNOW, In Real Life, Men Do NOT talk like they do in Romance Novels.

This is the 2nd in a series, but I didn't know it, and I read it first.

There are Three brothers: Roman "The Bachelor", Rick "The Playboy" and Chase "The Heartbreaker", who live in the small town of Yorkshire Falls. The brothers' mother is a typical meddling yenta, w/ a make-believe heart condition that proves to be her undoing. Mother has been egging all the single women in town to go after Rick, which leads to one particular problem who refuses to take "NO" for an answer.

Kendall Sutton's, Aunt Crystal, has passed and left Kendall her house. Just as Kendall Arrives in town, w/ pink hair & in a bridal gown (fleeing her wedding), her car breaks down and Rick (local Police) arrives to her rescue....

From there is ups, downs, double-talk, sparks, steamy sex, and problematic family & neighbors. ( )

Rick Chandler
Kendell Sutton

I like Kendell and Rick. And Kendell's sister is a trip. This book did seem to be a bit overlong to me but that could just be contemporary burn out. In the end I'm glad Kendell got herself together and she and Rick should have great future.

This is the second book in the Chandler Bros. series. It is much better than the first book, and these characters are more interesting and the heroine is very amusing. Rick is the local cop and Kendall is just" passing"" thru and is stranded in a wedding dress with pink hair. so begins the story of these two. It includes Mother Chandler who is a busy body and manipulator par excellent, trying to get her sons married.
But the repartee between Rick and Kendall is often very funny and makes for pleasant reading.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446610550, Mass Market Paperback)

There isn't a woman in town who's immune to the legendary Chandler charm. Yet so far single cop Rick Chandler has managed to fend off the marriage-minded advances of Yorkshire Falls' entire female population. A past mistake has taught him never to put his heart on the line ... until he answers the SOS of a real-life runaway bride. In spite of her pearly gown and tiara, Kendall Sutton vows to never wed- which makes her the ideal pretend lover who can ward off Rick's legion of admirers. When their passionate charade flames into the real thing, Rick is suddenly thinking about two words that spell forever after. But will Kendall ever say "I do?" Can a woman who's had it with weddings tie the knot with the town's most popular playboy?
