Victoria Alexander has been one my favorite authors since I read her Last Man Standing series several years ago. Her heroines always have such a wonderful and witty personality. Her heroes, well … are heroic, swooping in to save the day.
Lady Theodosia is head-strong, willing to discretely work hard to save her family from the awful embarrassment of being left penniless after her father’s death. Fooled by her deceased fiancé, she’s determined never to love again.
Jackson Channing is a New York City banker, born and raised in America. When the father he’d always thought was dead suddenly arrives on his doorstep, he’s faced with decisions he’d never imagined possible.
Jackson is a true hero, stepping in to save Theodosia from an unwanted marriage proposal. A fake engagement unexpectedly becomes the perfect solution to both their problems. Until a spontaneous kiss changes everything. And maybe, just maybe neither one of them want the arrangement to remain fake.
The Shocking Secret of a Guest at the Wedding is the fourth book in the Millworth Manor series, but it reads perfectly fine as a standalone. Victoria Alexander never disappoints and the holiday setting was an unexpected perk. I had a hard time putting it down, even when sleep or the day job required me to.
The Shocking Secret of a Guest at the Wedding gets Four and a Half Red Pumps!
The bride and groom cordially request your presence for a wedding at Millworth Manor…
Guests will include Jackson Quincy Graham Channing, New York City banker, and Lady Theodosia “Teddy” Winslow, wedding planner to the finest families in England.
Introductions shall be followed by light conversation, dancing, flirtation, arguing, reconciliation, and an impulsive kiss that both parties are quite certain they will never repeat.
Until they do.
A mutually beneficial fake engagement will be accompanied by all manner of very real complications, scandalous revelations, nefarious schemes, and one inescapable conclusion: That true love—unlike the perfect wedding—is impossible to plan…

New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander was an award-winning television reporter until she discovered fiction was much more fun than real life. She turned to writing full time and has never looked back. Victoria grew up traveling the country as an Air Force brat and is now settled in a very old house in Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, two allegedly grown children and two bearded collies. She firmly believes housework is a four-letter word, there are no calories in anything eaten standing up, procrastination is an art form, and it’s never too soon to panic.
