Serial Bride hooked me from the first page. This story is edge of the seat entertainment that does not stop until the end. It is hook, line and sinker all rolled into one roller coaster package that is awesome. Ms. Voss Peterson spins a creative plot and dynamite characters that entail non-stop action making this one captivating read. She allows a chemistry to sprinkle between Sylvie and Bryce that comes alive in the pages. What I really enjoyed about this book was the fact Ms. Voss Peterson kept the twists and turns so enticing that it keeps one guessing until the end. Wonderful, warm, sensual and loaded in suspense this book really took this readers breath away.
