She only remembers loving him. But he can’t forget the way she left.

Lucy Lovett can’t remember the last seven months of her life. She doesn’t remember leaving her fiancé Zac Callahan weeks before their wedding or moving to Portland, Maine. And she sure doesn’t remember getting engaged to another man. All she remembers is loving Zac more than life itself.

Zac was just beginning to get his life back on track after Lucy left him with no explanation. And now she’s back—vulnerable, homeless, and still in love with him. Has he been given a second chance with the only woman who stirs his passion and haunts his dreams?

Lucy knows she must unlock those missing months and discover why she threw everything away. And Zac knows that if he follows his heart he’ll win back the love of his life—but if Lucy’s memory returns, his would-be bride might say goodbye forever.

The Goodbye Bride


is the word I’d use to describe The Goodbye Bride by Denise Hunter! It pulled me in from the first page. I LOVE books like that!

The Goodbye Bride is the second novel in the Summer Harbor Series, which started with Falling Like Snowflakes. The third novel in the series is coming up in September and is called Just a Kiss.

Zac Callahan is a man who has recently been jilted by his fiance Lucy Lovett. Left to lick his emotional wounds, Zac had spent the last several months trying to move on. When Lucy called him out of nowhere needing his help, however, he put aside his hurt feelings and went to her aid. When he found her, he didn’t expect her to have lost her memory.

Lucy Lovett had moved on with her life. She’d found herself a new man and was about to be married, but when she had an accident that erased several months of her life’s memories, all Lucy knew was that she was that she had to call Zac. She wasn’t prepared for him to be so confused as to why she would call him.

The writing is fantastic–the story moves at a steady pace.

The characters are well-fleshed, giving the reader a feel that they are real. Denise has a gift of also weaving the setting in such a graphic way that the reader can picture setting details so easily.

I’m looking forward to getting my hands on Just a Kiss next month. I thoroughly enjoy Denise Hunter’s writing. If you’ve never read her books before, you should! This is a great book to wrap up your summer–whether on the beach, at the lake, or in your backyard–you won’t regret reading The Goodbye Bride!
