Genevieve MacKenzie has her life completely under control. About to wed the charming Chief doctor at the local hospital, she’s an up-and-coming surgeon with everything she could ever want. Until an escape through the church window on the day of her wedding sends her life into a tailspin...and flings her right into her best friend’s arms.
When Wolfe catches his best friend falling out a window on her wedding day, he doesn’t ask questions. He whisks her away, determined to watch over her and discover the truth behind her desperate escape. But when his feelings turn more than platonic, he realizes he may risk his most important relationship in order to protect his damaged heart, and the woman he loves.
Can Genevieve and Wolfe’s friendship turn into something deeper—or is it already too late for true love?
Searching for Beautiful is book three in the Searching For series. Even though I have yet to read the first two books, I felt that I didn't miss anything from the previous books at all. The previous characters were briefly introduced in the book and played wonderful supporting roles!
What prompted me to get this book was how the story started--runaway bride, the escape, the adventures and promise of character breakthrough. It all started out with Gen's escape on her wedding day, freaked out by her sense of unease and how she jumped out of the window and her escape with her best friend, Wolfe, who just so happen to witness the scene. He whisked her away on a short trip to sort out her mind and that is when everything started.
I like the theme of the best friend turned lovers and how the author addresses some of the deeper issues in the book regarding the characters' current misconstrued feelings and about how to let go and move on from the past. These weren't too heavy to read and I quite enjoy the flow of the whole story. The author have a knack for keeping her readers entranced in the book. I can actually feel the chemistry between Gen and Wolfe and the special friendship among Gen, Kate and Kennedy. I will definitely recommend this book to readers who love a light and enjoyable heated and meaningful romance book.
