Love Is a Battlefield: Seven Brides for Seven Mothers, Book 1 is a romantic comedy written by Whitney Dineen. Addison Cooper could already feel the warm breezes and hear the gentle lapping of the waves as she waited for the departure of her plane for her Cayman Island vacation. She would be there for two weeks courtesy of her client, the very dishy Roediger Bainbridge, who had selected her to redesign the Bainbridge Caribbean resort. Addison could see nothing short of a freak weather event interfering with her being on that flight and headed for paradise. What she failed to consider, however, were the lengths to which her mom, Libby Cooper, and her mom’s best friend, Ruby Cavanaugh, would go to interfere in the lives of their children. Addison was 32 already, and Brogan Cavanaugh was 35. And while Addison had grown up despising the Cavanaugh brothers, who had delighted in pranking her every summer, Ruby and Libby figured their dislike could easily be turned into something romantic, which would lead to them being happily married and ready to give those moms the grandkids they so badly wanted. Would it work? Ruby was sure of it, and Libby was definitely going along with her friend’s plan. And no, Addison would not be getting on that plane to paradise.
Whitney Dineen’s Love Is a Battlefield is a fast-paced and fun story about meddling mothers and their plan to reintroduce kids who had been arch-enemies as they grew up. Anyone who’s ever read one of Dineen’s other novels will go into this one knowing they’ll have a good time, and they’d be right on target with that supposition. Watching as sparks fly between the Manhattan designer and her childhood tormentor, the author who lived on the Oregon Coast, is deliciously funny, and the pranks, both past and present, are hilarious. I also loved experiencing Oregon through Dineen’s characters’ eyes. The author’s characters are finely hewn and soon came to feel like old friends, and the plot is a grand one. Love Is a Battlefield: Seven Brides for Seven Mothers, Book 1 is most highly recommended.
