When I saw a fairy tale which included three dogs and was written by Dana Mentink, I immediately added it to my "to be read" list. Just Right Romance quickly went to the top of my reading list and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
I was cheering for Goldie, the main character, right away. I enjoyed the developing romance between Goldie and Justin throughout the story. I found it interesting that Justin's and, his sister Cecelia's, past was not as Goldie believed it to be and that added some depth to the story.
There were numerous obstacles that Goldie had to overcome to pull off a last minute wedding for her friend Cecelia. The biggest obstacle may have been finding a sous chef. I was pleasantly surprised at how that situation was resolved.
My favorite character was Raj, the wedding photographer. Raj is terrified of dogs and his reactions to "the three bears" made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion!
It took me at least until the middle of the story until I figured out that the fairy tale this story was giving a modern day spin to was Goldilocks and the Three Bears!
I purchased a copy of this book. I was not required to write a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Summary of the Book
