Sawyer decides at the very last minute that being the best man at the wedding of his ex and his best friend is a bit too much. And by last minute I mean while at the altar. He walks out in big fashion and lands in a small town at a bar to lick his wounds. Hoping no one will recognize the big Hollywood writer. What he doesn’t realize is the resort he is staying at to hide out from the press is owned and run by a woman he was setup on a blind date with years ago. That date ended up badly. Now he comes face to face with what he missed and she’s off limits to him because she’s dating someone else.
I have not read a Meghan Quinn book in a while and I was starting to feel like I was missing out! I usually enjoy her stories and the charm of her characters. Runaway Groomsman has that vibe. It certainly is full of lovable characters. From the hero and heroine, all the way to relatives and friends. This packs all the charm of a small town romance, which I loved. But it’s also a slow burn romance. In this case, it made sense. Although for me, it’s not one of my favorite tropes. In the end, the pacing and the tension was just a bit too slow and laid back for me.
Another thing that kept me drawn to this story was Fallon and her grandfather. I loved seeing a heroine that cared so much for her grandfather that she was willing to change her life’s goals to take care of him. Warmed my heart. He is a widower and has Alzheimers. The emotional struggle that comes with all of that was my favorite part that the author was able to capture. And to see how the hero fit in with that was perfect as well.
I was hoping this romantic comedy was a bit funnier and steamier. Guess that goes to expectations and it’s on me. Ms. Quinn can write both of those things into her books. But if you’re in the market for a sweet, slow burn romcom that leans a bit to women’s fiction then this is the one for you.
