Blurb: Dylan Mitchell wants to get married.
However, after seven years of being engaged, that’s looking slightly doubtful. After going through ten wedding planners, they’re gaining a reputation somewhat akin to Henry the Eighth on the wedding circuit.
Gabe has vetoed symbolic dove releases, forests of flowers, fire-eating performers, and puce as a wedding colour. He’s confounded an army of wedding professionals, and now Dylan, the man who knows and loves him better than anyone, has joined the ranks of the confused. Can anything please his fiancé and get them to the altar?
Review: “Whatever we do and wherever we go, it’s you and me, yes? Always and forever?”
The stuff of romance is packed into the pages of Lily Morton’s Vow Maker: the love, the devotion, the gratitude, the selfless desire for each other’s happiness. In fact, it’s that unwavering commitment to make each other happy that almost trips up Dylan and Gabe’s wedding plans, but never fear, they get through it the way they always have—with patience and kindness and a little snark sprinkled in to remind us why they fit so perfectly together.
Their Special Day wouldn’t be quite so special if old friends weren’t along for the ride to offer support, but it’s the words of wisdom from Joe, their wedding planner (the one they ultimately settle on after lots of trial and error), that pave the way to the altar. His introduction really couldn’t have been more perfect, and we even get a sprinkling of his backstory that, apart from being an interesting contrast of his choice of careers, makes me wonder if we might see him as a romantic lead in his own book at some point. He’s once-bitten-twice-shy and, as far as I’m concerned, needs his own happy ending.
Morton gives Vow Maker the ideal touch, reminding readers that falling in love didn’t magically cure Gabe or rid him of his past, but also not making that a hopeless sticking point. It’s the place where Dylan’s love holds fast, and the place where Gabe knows he’s safe. This is a lovely heart-warmer of a story: not too long, not too short, but just right.
