Oh, my! What a lot of weddings! Wishes on Wildflowers released a week or two ago. It’s the fourth book in my Urban Farm Fresh Romance series, and suddenly it was time for ALL THREE of the other weddings to actually happen!
I’d done some chronological overlapping, with Secrets of Sunbeams (Eden and Jacob’s story — you all remember Pansy the goat, right?) starting in late June and ending in October. Butterflies on Breezes (Linnea and Logan’s story — butterflies instead of goats!) started that same July and ended in December. Not one to leave well enough alone, Memories of Mist (Adriana and Myles’s story — I settled for a large dog instead…) starts that same late August and ends in April.
It was time for a break! So Wishes on Wildflowers starts in February and runs through July of the following year. It still does a little overlapping with Memories of Mist that way, but not to the same challenging point that the first two books had, since the two guys were housemates. You may not be QUITE as relieved as I am that the next book, Flavors of Forever, will start after the end of Wishes on Wildflowers…
But I digress. Weddings. Romance readers love to read the weddings of previous characters, but that can be a bit challenging for the author. It’s our job to make sure the wedding isn’t in there as a freebie, but that it actually matters to the heroine and hero of the current book and affects their relationship in some tangible way.
And because Rob Santoro from Other Than a Halo is Jasmine’s cousin and plays a role in Wishes on Wildflowers — oh, and Alaina from Rooted in Love (Arcadia Valley Romance) is Adriana’s sister, I added them into the equation.
Not the book. Just the quiz. WHEW. And then I felt badly leaving out Evelyn and Ben (Sprouts of Love — Arcadia Valley Romance) and Joanna and Grady (Sow in Love — Romance Grows in Arcadia Valley), so what the heck, right? If I was going to write THE WEDDING QUIZ it might as well cover all seven of those couples. Done.
