WHAT REVIEWERS SAY
“A delightful short story that shows the impact words can make but how love, determination, and forgiveness can right the wrong.”
“A great short story. I really liked the story, the wedding excited them and I liked how it ended as well. It was fun and a quick witty and naughty story.”
"Who gets ditched at a wedding? Stephanie paused and took a deep breath before walking into her friend’s reception. Something like this could only happen to her.ABOUT Lisa Carlisle
Ditched wasn’t a strong enough description. “Maybe we should try separating.” Johnny’s words echoed in her mind, lashing her psyche raw with repetition.
Separating! She closed her eyes. Unthinkable.
It’s okay. You can do this. Stick it out for a couple of hours and then you can deal with the mess.
