REVIEW: There is a saying, ‘Good things come in small packages,’ and A GROOM TO THE ALTAR is a perfect example of this. The first in Patricia Sargeant’s new Meet The Bridegroom series features DeAndre Portiss and Elisha Tomlin in a ‘friends to lovers’ story which I found totally satisfying.

DeAndre is one-third of a film production company. He is the producer of the company, Nathan Fletcher, the director, and Asher Tomlin, the writer. DeAndre has always dreamt of producing a documentary about the Sellsville Sluggers with his partners. The time has finally arrived, and the company hired Elisha, Asher’s sister, to market the project. What transpires is a delightful clash of minds and hearts.

DeAndre is a man who is devoted to his work and has no time for trivialities or relationships. Elisha, like DeAndre, is devoted to her work and has gained a reputation as a great marketing specialist, despite her quirky approach. She believes in horoscopes and DeAndre finds this characteristic a bit too much, so working together is not easy at first. Elisha also believes that the one night they spent together was more that; that it was the start of a life together. Fortunately, DeAndre eventually discovers that being ‘different’ sometimes works and that there is more to life than work; that the heart and love matter.

A GROOM TO THE ALTAR is a very special book from a very talented author. Thought her hero and heroine are polar opposites, the sexual tension between them sizzles below the surface. Their fate is inevitable but the journey there is filled with angst. It is this journey, and the author's characterization, which made the story enjoyable and worth every minute of the few hours I spent reading this little gem.

A GROOM TO THE ALTAR sets the bar high so I can’t wait to read the others in the series. I highly recommend this delightful read!
