"wrong place, right time" by brooke williams

As soon as I finished reading Brooke Williams' delightful Accept This Dandelion, I purchased Wrong Place, Right Time—I wanted more of Williams' writing!

As the bumbling town TV traffic reporter, Kate Covington is a constant source of entertainment, but Kate sticks with her dead end job because of her love for news anchor Brian Schaffer. When Brian spontaneously runs off to marry his high school sweetheart, Kate panics and quickly follows. She finds herself in a Las Vegas wedding chapel, desperate to tell her best friend how she feels before he makes a huge mistake and marries the wrong person. The mistake, however, is all Kate’s. 

As the scorned bride runs back down the short aisle, Kate quickly realizes she just interrupted the wrong wedding. The would-be groom, Chad Leida, explains the predicament Kate has caused him…he needs to marry before turning 30 in order to inherit his family fortune…and he no longer has a bride. 

When Chad asks Kate to marry him and promises her a million dollars for a year of her time, Kate isn’t sure what to do. She has a great deal of debt to her name due to caring for her ailing grandmother, but she also doesn’t want to let go of the idea of love and marriage going together. 

Kate’s impulsive decision changes her entire lifestyle…and her ideas about love. From Las Vegas to San Francisco and even to the Midwestern city of Omaha, Kate learns that even when she turns up in the Wrong Place, sometimes it is at just the Right Time.

Wrong Place, Right Time is a sweet romance with the added bonus (at least in my eyes) of being a marriage of convenience story—my favorite! It's pretty short at around 150 pages and can be read in an hour or two.

I loved Kate's story and her courage to pursue her dream. I do have to say, though, that I think this story would have been better served in a full-length novel. I would have loved more time to see Kate interact with Chad and his family. The ending especially felt a bit incomplete—everything wrapped up really quickly. But overall, I really liked Wrong Place, Right Time, and Williams is quickly becoming a must-read author for me! 3-1/2 stars.

Buy the book. (It's FREE as of 2-14-15—don't know how long that will last!)
Read my review of Williams' Accept This Dandelion.

Brooke Williams writes in a sleep-deprived state while her daughters nap. Her romantic comedy is best read in the same state. Brooke has twelve years of radio in her background, both behind the scenes and on the air. She was also a television traffic reporter for a short time despite the fact that she could care less about hair and make-up. Today, Brooke stays at home with her daughters and works as a freelance writer for a variety of companies. When she isn’t working for paying clients, she makes things up, which results in books like “Accept this Dandelion.” Brooke is also the author of “Wrong Place, Right Time,” “Someone Always Loved You,” and “Beyond the Bars.” And she looks forward to the upcoming released of “Mamarazzi” and “Baby Sheep Gets a Haircut.” Brooke and her husband Sean have been married since 2002 and have two beautiful daughters, Kaelyn (5) and Sadie (nearly 2).
