"Ruby has been in love with Ford since their university days, but she hasn't seen her former best friend in years--not since the one unforgettable kiss they shared right before he went off globe-trotting and she stayed behind. When he returns to town unexpectedly for their friends' New Year's Eve wedding, the sparks between them ignite, but can her wanderer ever settle down? Ford has never forgotten Ruby, or the kiss that changed everything between them, despite the many women he has tried to erase her with. His return to England for the wedding means a second chance with Ruby--but will one passion-filled evening with her be enough, or has he finally found his home?"
Kitty French is not a new author for me, no matter the fact that before Wanderlust I haven't read any of her novels. I've been tiptoeing around Knight series for a while, but after this sweet and short read, I plan to meet dark and brooding Lucien Knight really soon.
Second chance and feel-good holiday novella. I enjoyed reading about Ruby and Ford - college friends who haven't seen each other in eight years and now, they are meeting again because their best friends' wedding. Considering the fact that this is novella, I think it has less than 50 pages, it is obvious that you can't expect profound plot and a lot of unexpected twists, but Kitty French manage to write fun, short read that will satisfy your craving for sweet love story. Not to mention that it fits perfectly with upcoming holidays.
It is a little bit cheesy, maybe too fairy taleish with the whole wedding setting, but if you are sucker for romantic gestures, you should not miss Wanderlust.
