  It's hard to concentrate when the past keeps shoving its way into your thoughts...

After returning home from teaching in a refugee camp in the Philippines, Samantha Bravencourt enjoys her quiet life working at her mother's clothing boutique near Washington, D.C. When she receives an invitation to her friend's wedding in Winston-Salem, NC, she's excited to reconnect with her college pals.

But the wedding turns out quite differently than Sam expects. A chance encounter leads to a reunion with Carson Brylie, a fellow teacher and the man who once broke her heart, and Lien, a young Amerasian girl who desperately needs Sam and Carson's help.

But working with Carson might put Sam's tender heart at risk once again. Is she willing to forgive the past and take another chance on love?

A WEDDING INVITATION is book four in this series, preceded by Rain Song, How Sweet It Is, and Hattaras Girl, however, each book stands alone. I love contemporary romance, and am fond of first person, present tense, so that didn’t bother me. However, Sam seemed a bit one dimensional, and I didn’t like relationship between Sam and Carson at all. The romance wasn’t really anything to speak of.

I liked that Ms. Wisler was really a teacher of English in foreign countries, and that she knew what she was talking about in those parts. If you are interested in teaching English overseas, or like first person/present tense romance, you might like A WEDDING INVITATION. It is an older book, but still available.

3 stars. Available in ebook and paperback. 323 pages.

I received this book from and was not required to write a review.
