Book Blurb: 
Melissa and Owen met on New Years' Eve and he proposed on Valentine's Day. Now it's March, and they're about to set sail on a two-week Caribbean cruise - and get married on the last day at sea. Though their relationship's moving fast, Melissa's wanted to be married for years and she knows the smart stable Owen is a great catch so she's sure they'll be fine.

At least, she's sure until she meets his brothers on the cruise and discovers she's dated both of them: Austin, the fun-loving flirt whose kisses still haunt her dreams, and Nicholas, the sweet horror movie fan whose lack of ambition upset her in ways she still doesn't understand.

Melissa expected to spend tons of time onboard with her fiancé, but he instead spends nearly his every waking moment in the casino displaying a previously unseen love of gambling. This surprise, and the time she spends with Nicholas and with Austin, makes her question everything she thought she wanted.

Her relationship with Owen was just fine before, but suddenly 'just fine' doesn't seem good enough to keep a marriage alive for a lifetime. Melissa has two weeks to decide: stay with Owen or jump ship.

Review: I don't think there's a book by Heather Wardell that I don't love. This book is no exception. Owen and Melissa are about to be married on a family cruise, only Melissa didn't know Owen's family until she stepped on board the ship.

Big surprises! She's dated both of Owen's brothers.

More surprises! Owen spends more time in the ships casino than he does with her.

Melissa finds herself spending more time with her ex, Nicholas, than her soon to be hubby.

Uh oh!

I wanted Melissa to show some more spunk, with Owen. I think she let him off way too easily with his gambling.

I wanted to like Owen, but it was impossible not to love Nicholas and even Austin better. They both seemed to have more chemistry with Melissa.

It drove me crazy trying to figure out who she was going to chose in the end. (I'll admit, I had a favorite)

If you are a fan of great women's fiction, you have to give this book a try!
