Review + Giveaway ~ Wildflower Wedding (Cricket Creek #6) by Luann McLane

Cricket Creek, Kentucky, is a sweet river town known for its baseball, shopping, and weddings. After the recession, business is finally bouncing back, but old insecurities—and heartaches—are slower to heal…
Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, Gabby Goodwin had more to prove than the rest of Cricket Creek. Even now, as the successful owner of the local flower shop, she hasn’t forgotten her humble beginnings. So when her high school crush, the former class bad boy, walks back into her life, she keeps him at arm’s length, protecting her heart—and her pride.

Reese Marino gave up most of his wild ways years ago, graduating from college and becoming part owner of his uncle’s pizza parlor. The fact that Gabby still treats him like a troubled teenager drives him mad, but that’s not the only thing about the sassy florist driving him to distraction. Despite Gabby’s reluctant attitude, Reese is determined to win her over and show her that love often blooms right where you least expect it.
 
Wildflower Wedding is a sweet story of love in a small town. Cricket Creek, Kentucky is the small town where Reese and Gabby grew up as neighbors in the town trailer park – poor kids from the wrong side of the tracks. Reese was the “bad boy” in high school always getting in trouble – often for things he didn’t do. Gabby was the nerd with the crush on her neighbor who went out of his way to be sweet to her. 

Years later they are both back in town, business owners and college graduates – but it is hard to live down the past. They each had a bad case of teen love in high school but when Reese asked her to prom she turned him down thinking he was only teasing her. Full of life and hope they take a chance on each other with one step forward and two steps back frequently. Each of us have voices in our heads – those of our friends, family or even just history – those voices can threaten our best chance at happiness given the opportunity.

Luann McLane has a sweet take on love in a small town as well as giving yourself and those around you second chances; we all need them. There are multiple love stories concurrent in this novel. Full of innuendo and the interconnectedness of the lives of a small town Wildflower Wedding is a lighthearted romance full of drama and the nosy neighbors we all love to hate.
