Saying I Do by Tracey Alvarez ~ New Release and Review

Marriage and happily-ever-after are for suckers…

Joe Whelan was fooled once on the way to the altar, and the Irish doctor isn’t about to be an eejit over a woman again. Especially not one who witnessed his broken-hearted humiliation years ago. He won’t be swayed by the sparks that fly whenever his eyes meet MacKenna’s or distracted by her sweet kisses. The only thing Joe cares about is preventing his sister from making the biggest marital mistake of her life.

MacKenna Jones loves a good wedding—so long as she’s sewing the bride’s gown, not walking down the aisle herself. Falling for Joe Whelan’s sexy bedside manner wasn’t on the cards, neither was a seven-day road trip with him to Las Vegas, the Marriage Capital of the World. When the stakes are so high, will these two gun-shy cynics ever say I Do?

SAYING I DO is the eighth story in Tracey Alvarez’s best-selling Stewart Island books set against the stunning backdrop of Aotearoa, New Zealand. If you like heart-warming, sexy & seductive small-town romances with a touch of humor, you’ll love sharing the journey with these authentic men and women struggling to find their special someone.

Elizabeth's Review

3.5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time

Another solid entry Ms Alvarez's Stewart Island series takes us back to New Zealand's southern isle and the small community of Oban.
This story focuses on the town Doctor, Joe, and Mackenna - an honorary member of the community via her cousin Holly.
This is a not quite- enemies to lovers story that focuses on two people that have been wounded by the past and have to learn to love again.
This is a well written story that takes our couple from Oban to Las Vegas and back. We see how the past impacts both of them and the struggle to let those fears go.
Oban and it's rich cast of characters play a smaller part than normal in this book, but it is a refreshing change that helps to keep the series fresh feeling 8 books in. Even though we don't see as much of the Oban community, we still have Alvarez's typical strong cast of entertaining secondary characters. We not only see Mackenna's friends, but Joe's family as well. All of whom have potential to be leading stories of their own in the future.
