FAVORITE COFFEE FAVORITE MISTAKE

STORY-LINE FAVORITE COFFEE FAVORITE MISTAKE BY VICTORIA PINDER:

In Favorite Coffee Favorite Mistake, the reader finds two lovers torn apart years ago.  Sandra Marshall and Wyatt meet on-board Penny’s wedding cruise again.  Sandra, as the wedding planner, must see all goes well;  hoping to transition from former wedding shop owner to wedding planner as a result of her supervision and planning.  Wyatt, along with his small daughter, is on-board for the wedding.  Both mothers, of the bride and groom, I would graciously describe as mothers from hell.

After Wyatt left Sandra, his high school love, he married and had a daughter.  However, there is much more to this story.  Sandra and Wyatt not only have to see the wedding goes off without disruption but resolve issues from the past.  My reviews for the romance novel, Favorite Coffee Favorite Mistake, follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Favorite Coffee Favorite Mistake by Victoria Pinder takes the reader on a wedding cruise filled with vengeful mothers, a very much in love wedding couple, friends galore, and high school lovers with issues to resolve.  I found the plot fast-paced and steady along with well-developed characters.  The reasons behind Wyatt’s desertion of Sandy all those years ago empathized what a good man Wyatt was;  he’s one with a deep sense of responsibility.   Add in his adorable daughter, Charlotte, and the reader will lose their heart.  What a sweet child.

Also, you will love to hate the mothers.  What pieces of work.  Excellent work, Ms. Pinder, in creating obnoxious villains.  Sandy is a hard-working woman, who never loved again.  As a result, Wyatt’s the only man she had ever wanted.  She is ready and willing to hear Wyatt’s explanations.  As the romance begins to feel the air, will Wyatt and Sandy overcome past mistakes?

STORY-LINE FAVORITE COFFEE FAVORITE SCANDAL BY VICTORIA PINDER:

Eva Bishop, pregnant, alone, down to her last few cents, is offered an opportunity she can not pass up.  Brandon Campbell’s in need of a pregnant actress for his current movie project.  As well as, a spy to help him decide where all the over expenditures are going.   Desperate, Eva agrees;  she has always liked Brandon and agreeing to be his pretend girlfriend would be easy.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Victoria Pinder took a role I did not like from earlier books and developed Eva into a likable maturing person.  A standalone read, I subject you read the previous books to give you character and story depth.  Eva’s development and maturity begins after she finds herself pregnant

She’s determined to raise her child in a secure, loving environment.  Eva’s also a person of moral character as she believes in paying her debts;  which is how she finds herself broke.  Brandon’s the answer to her prayers.  Pinder developed Eva from a woman with many insecurities to one who knows her worth.

Brandon’s a knight in shining armor.  I loved his determination to care for Eva and her baby;  not realizing emotions will begin to play a part in their relationship.  Pinder built the romance between Eva and Brandon slowly as each wrestled with their past and insecurities.  Brandon knows something about Eva’s history which no one else knows;  resulting in how Eva saw herself and her qualities.
