Format: Paperback
This was a wonderful romantic read that I thoroughly enjoyed. It was a fun take on starting over with great characters and a plot that rolled along smoothly straight through to the end. It was full of all I expect with chick lit, especially single girl lit, including laughs, romance and delightful characters.

Zoe Moore was jilted at the altar by her fiancé, Jason, and in an effort to escape the memories and the pity, she travels to America as a nanny to two small children whose mother was killed in a car accident. Their father, Ryan Miller, is gorgeous and lives his lifestyle accordingly, away all day and night, returning smelling of different perfumes and as Zoe pines for Jason, she becomes increasingly frustrated by Ryan's neglectful behaviour. She seeks solace in the community of British nannies and wonders where the fun loving Ryan she keeps hearing of disappeared to, while attempting to figure out her feelings for Jason and her future and create a loving, fun environment for the two wonderful children she's charged with. Has she successfully run from her past and what does her future hold?

Costello's wit and humour, along with her carefully crafted plot, turns out another great chick lit read. I loved Zoe's character with her determination and desire to figure herself out. The children were lovely and I liked their role in the story, along with Ryan's character. Zoe;s parents were fully present and well developed even though they weren't with Zoe in America and I loved the community of nannies as well. The plot was seamless with no loose ends and even though predictable, kept me intrigued through to the end.

There's a reason this novel was awarded the Romantic Comedy Award 2010 by the RNA (Romantic Novelists Association).

Pretty good summer read June 10 2010
By M. E. Newell - Published on
Format: Paperback
The worst thing that can happen to a woman has happened to Zoe Moore. She got jilted on her wedding day. To avoid well meaning friends and family, she decides to take a nanny position in America. Once arriving in Boston, Zoe finds herself taking care of Samuel and Ruby Miller and Ryan moody man who since his wife death has not been much father to his children. Over the growing months Zoe makes friends with serveral other nannies in town. Zoe helps to bring the Miller family back together and Ryan and Zoe are drawn together, but when Zoe word from home, Will she choose her past in England or is her future in Boston.
"The Nearly-weds" is the first book by Jane Costello and its a pretty good book for summer. I found the characters pretty interesting and the book moved a pretty good pace. While I didn't really enjoy the ending, for a summer read its pretty good.

I enjoyed Jane Costello's Nearly-Weds. I usually read Jill Mansell and I love the British Chick Lit as she writes it. Jane is a close second. I enjoyed the characters. They were real and believable as well. The humor brings a smile to your face and in your mind's eye you see it all happening like a great romantic comedy. I will read her again.

Jane Costello has written another original story! so many laugh out loud moments, so many strangers wondering if I was nuts! So clever to make me cry and dream as well, all in one book. Can"t wait for to start another one.
