"The Wedding Charade" [Four Weddings and a Fiasco World Series] by Melissa McClone

Author's Book Description : Growing up in her twin sister's shadow, Claire O'Ryan has made a life for herself away from family and the Hollywood limelight. But when her sister's lies start spinning out of control and she finds herself in trouble, Claire and her former crush are forced to help out.

A-list actor Brady Simms enjoys playing a good part and pretending to be engaged to his childhood best friend, Claire, sounds like an interesting role. Planning a fake wedding happens all too easily. Acting like he's madly in love with the quiet, sweet librarian feels all too right. And her kisses…all too perfect. Will a game of make-believe turn into a real-life happily ever after?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Longtime friends are thrown into an unexpected romantic relationship in hopes of helping someone else they both care about. While dealing with major close proximity after being apart for a long time they start to find that the person they want to be in a relationship with is with each other. But will their loved ones, rabid fans, and life simply keep them apart for good or will their true wishes finally come true?

Though I’ll freely admit that Ms. McClone’s book description intrigued me into reading this novella, it didn’t take me long to realize that because of some of the characters in this novella I really hesitated in liking this one or not. I can say right off the bat that I HATE/LOATH Claire’s twin sister, Cate, and their parents. I get the reasons that their parents sided with Cate as they were not allowing Claire to tell them her side of the story but how they treated Claire and then their quick reversal after they learned the truth REALLY irked me. THEN there is the phenomenon that is Claire’s twin sister Cate, who all I can really say is crazy. Claire might have been a bit crazy too to agree to everything she did for Cate. However, I completely understand her love for Brady. Though Brady was a bit dim-witted because he thought Cate did everything “out of the goodness of her heart,” he truly was the perfect man for Claire. The ONLY reason I stuck through this whole novella was because of Claire and Brady’s relationship, along with Claire’s silly cat Thor and their animated bodyguards.

Though I struggled through this novella, I would STILL recommend it to those looking for a new adventure from the ‘Four Weddings and a Fiasco’ World and/or looking for a quirky contemporary romance.
