The Wedding Audition Catherine Mann & Joanne Rock Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

The tabloids call her the Hit and Run Bride after reality show star Annamae Jessup walked out on Atlanta’s favorite baseball player on cable television. Eager to escape her notoriety, Annamae takes a road trip to find the grandmother she’s never met and winds up discovering a whole lot more than a band of back woods relatives. There’s no escape from reality TV, even in Beulah, Alabama, population 3000.

The last thing Wynn Rafferty needs in his new life is a spoiled television princess who can’t even know his real name. He’s in temporary witness protection as an apple farmer after his undercover work put his life in danger. He needs to lay low until the heat dies down from his last case— even if he sucks at growing apples as badly as he sucks at relationships. But Annamae turns his new town into a media circus, unwittingly threatening the lives of him, her and most of Beulah. Wynn is an expert at keeping the world at arm’s length, but when it comes to Annamae, the only way he can keep her safe is to keep her very, very close.

  • Story Keeps you on your toes

    By Renae_D
    The Wedding Audition had quite a bit of suspense in play. Wondering what Annamae is up to next? The mystery behind Heath Lambert. The opening line of the story is quite a shock!! The story kept me on my toes. I received an ARC for an honest and fair review.

    The Wedding Audition is the second novella in the Runaway Brides series by the author duet of Catherine Mann and Joanne Rock. At just under 150 pages, the prequel and this first novella are the perfect afternoon escape, with plenty of romance and clever characters to enjoy. There’s plenty going on in this story, perhaps a touch too many elements that add potential for tension and conflict without really needing to be there. But, I digress. Annamae is a reality television star who just made a huge gaffe on national television, breaking up with her baseball player fiancé. The pressure from the story and celebrity chasers is never ending, so she heads out to take some time for herself and deal with some long-standing family issues. She’s searching for her father, and planning to use the time to decide what it is that she really wants. Wynn is an undercover police officer hiding out in protective custody in Alabama. When Annamae arrives, the constant threat of a media circus is not a welcome sight. And, in his situation, Wyatt is not even considering a relationship, long or short term. With plenty of concerns surrounding Wyatt’s safety should his hiding place be discovered, Annamae’s crazy relatives and her never-before met Grandmother, it barely seems as if they have time to find the threads of romance. But, even as Annamae starts to discover what is truly important in her life, she and Wyatt find a connection that is unexpected and solid. While the pacing was a bit fast and the relationship seemed to be in fast-forward, there was solidity to the development of the characters and their connection, even if the issues of media and danger from cartels fell by the wayside. It was a quick read that was easy to follow and brought a smile. I received an eBook copy of the title from the publisher via Tasty Book Tours for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
  • undercover love

    By momof3boysj
    **I received an ARC in exchange for my opinion** Annamae's family is the South's favorite reality TV family. Though usually the quiet one, she's just accidentally dumped her fiance` in a most-public way. Escaping life, she runs to a small town in Alabama seeking the one truth about her family kept secret her entire life. Trying to stay incognito isn't easy, but fortunately for her, she's able to rent a carriage house from Wynn/Heath--undercover cop in hiding before a trial and disguised as a farmer. Trying to keep both out of the public eye leads to a lot of alone time for Wynn/Heath and Annamae. They discover other paths for the future as they fall in love and try to keep her family under control and Wynn/Heath safe from a crime family. This is a fun read with a great plot and HEA!
