Everything A Woman Could Want...

Hi, it’s Julie here, general assistant at The Wedding Belles, engaged to Matt McLachlan, the man of my dreams – at least, I think he is…and in a job I adore – at least, with women I adore, my best friends in the world…in America, at least.

Do all brides question their lives as the wedding approaches? Why do I suddenly feel as if, in marrying Matt, I will lose a part of myself? I love whom I work with, but not my job…I help all the Belles with their tasks, help their career dreams, but where are mine? Do I even know?

The engagement party is next week. And Matt’s gone again. He’s somewhere in Florida. He said it was a family issue…that was all. I’m marrying him in two months. Am I wrong to expect to know what those issues are?

Something’s wrong, and he’s not telling me. Oh, I know he’s had a lot to do with saving McLachlan Marine Industries, but he’s done that now, and still I know nothing. What is Matt hiding from me? He’s handsome, rich and treats me like a queen. I know he loves me…I’m, well, I’m certain of that, he tells me every day…but suddenly I feel lost, alone – and very far from home. My Australian family’s coming in six weeks for the wedding, but – but…I am in a place I love, with a man I love, working with women I love –

And still something’s missing. Too much is missing. I don’t even know what it is…is it Matt who has the problem - or is it me?

When Matt comes back, I am going to find out.

I really enjoyed this book and not just because the heroine has MY name.

Peace, Julie

Oh, Julie, thank you so much for telling me! It always touches me when people tell me if they liked my books. This was really hard to write - through a death in the family, a wedding and *3* moves overseas and back - so I really appreciate knowing it came together okay.
