You never forget your first love. At least, the wedding list coordinator at Pettett & Mayfield’s London department store hasn’t, though she’s tried hard to leave her past behind. When upper-crust professor James arrives in her department, nothing will be the same again.
With her eye for design and her cut-glass accent, no-one would guess Beth Forrest’s impoverished background. It’s all throw pillows, china patterns, and upper class brides as she manages the Wedding Registry at Pettett & Mayfield, the stately maiden aunt of London department stores. It’s not quite her dream job, but each bride she helps to select beautiful and oh-so-expensive items for their gift list brings her one step closer to buying a little home of her own, and financing the education she longs for.
When physics professor James Tetherton-Hart, brilliant in his research lab but awkward and disorganized in everyday life, comes to the store in desperate need of both a gift and a partner for a wedding that evening and recognizes her, all her careful plans and meticulous checklists are turned upside down.
Now her first love is back, determined to make her his partner for life, not just the evening. But unless Beth can let go of the mistaken beliefs that separated them in the past, and appreciate the depth and breadth of God’s love for us all, her only gift from the wedding will be another heartbreak.
The series is set around a stately old London department store, and the same settings and staff pop up in each book. But no need to read in order! Every story is a complete romance, following a different couple through the trials and joys of a developing love, to their happy-ever-after.
Includes Halloween costumes, kissing, and a hint of gentle slapstick humour, as well as British spelling. Complete with British English Glossary.
