Remi is a soon-to-be 35 year old successful publicist in London. She is given the task of making talented area singer/songwriter Alistair Wells visible, in order for his agent to secure a high profile gig as opening act on a more famous singer’s tour. She hesitates, since she and Alistair were engaged once upon a time, but he broke up with her 12 years ago for putting her job above everything else.
He doesn’t seem happy about working with her, although he comes around to the idea. As his career is taking off, though, Remi is having an epiphany about her own life and career and reevaluating everything.
These two have a lot to work through, though. With his musical career exploding and taking him away, can they make things work a second time?
It was so nice getting little glimpses of characters from the Castle Calder series, although this is completely a standalone and you definitely don’t feel like you are missing information if you haven’t read those books first. (Although I highly recommend reading them, they are fantastic.) I did really like Remi and Alistair both. Remi’s assistant Vera and Alistair’s friend Amy are both wonderful characters as well.
I can’t think of one thing I didn’t like about this book. I admit I was confused about the title at first, because there is no maid in the story. But then it dawned on me… Remi is a bridesmaid in her cousin’s wedding. *lightbulb moment*
Overall: Get this book! It was an engaging, lovely read.

theory, she also enjoys cooking, but it’s more that she enjoys eating and, try
as she might, she can’t live on Doritos alone.
