    In 1830, Lady Elizabeth Everley feels right at home in a science lab, but place her amidst the gala of the Ton and the reticent aristocrat feels like a fish out of water though this is her second season. To make matters more heart wrenching, her sibling Catherine is the life of the party. Based on their personalities, no one would believe these are sisters.

    Marquess John Vernon looks forward to leaving his responsibilities (that he inherited as a young man when his father died) behind to see the world. On the other hand, his brother, Richard, who was once quite a rake, wants to overcome his reputation through hard work and by marrying the right woman. When John, Richard, Elizabeth, and Catherine meet, attraction seems everywhere. However, Richard's secret, if revealed, will bring scandal and destroy any happiness the foursome might attain once they filter out which brother and sister belong together.

    WEDDING OF THE YEAR is an amusing historical romance starring four warm distinctively different lead characters. The support cast adds mirth with their matchmaking efforts. Though a “special” ghost adds little except for a bit of extra hilarity, Victoria Malvey provides her audience with a humorous tale with a pinch of suspense to round out this wonderful tale.
