Now if only she can stop dwelling on the last wedding she planned, then called off at the eleventh hour…her own. Trying not to regret breaking her engagement to her rage-aholic ex-fiancé, Lily puts all her focus on making this wedding a success. But when the bride turns out to be a nightmare and one of her key employees quits, Lily begins to question her ability to make it as a business owner. Even worse, she questions if she’ll ever find love with a man who doesn’t turn out to be controlling and abusive. Matthew Case has flown all the way from Baghdad, where he runs a computer consulting business, to act as best man for a lifelong friend.

For Lily, the handsome best man could be the best thing about this wedding-gone-haywire, but he lives halfway around the world. Does she dare hold out hope that he’s really the Prince Charming he appears to be if their worlds are oceans apart? Crescent Cove. Where true love comes in waves. ...

oceans apart Reviews
OCEANS APART is the first story I've read by Lesley Ann McDaniel. It is pretty formula romance, especially with a novella with a wedding destination theme. Heroine runs a hotel for destination weddings, bride is a bridezilla, groom is pretty laid back, and the best man is a dream. Oh, and the villain. We can't forget her. Wow. A woman we love to hate. I would've liked to have seen this story fleshed out instead of rushed through in less than 150 pages. It would have been fun to watch some scenes unfold and get more invested into the lives of the characters instead of a quick dash that leaves you going hmmm instead of ahhhh.I do love that everything that could possibly go wrong did go wrong. Well, almost everything.This was part of the Whispers of Love Collection (a 12-in-1 book) that has since disbanded and individually published. I bought Whispers of Love when it was available and I was not required to write a review on any of the books. All opinions are my own.
This book was really good, love the character of Matthew, how he helped out and did not let anyone influence him. This is the first book I have read by Lesley, definitely will read more. This is the 2nd in the series but can be read as a stand alone, I do plan on reading the first one in the series though. This is set a Inn and They are having a Wedding and have the guest there, the bride is very picky about things. Also the character of Lily is very enjoyable. A very interesting book.
Read in one dayI have read 1st two books in series in 2 days. Really sweet story set in my dream town! Stories a little short for my preferences but great summer reads
I am not a fan of bridezillas, so this book and story drove me a little nuts, but not because of the writing. That was good and I found it full of little quirks and delights along the way.
This story was fun and a feel good kind of story. Absolutely loved Matthew and the amazing man that he was. The Bridezilla episodes were so crazy. And through it all, Lily kept her head! Great story to curl up to.

8/17/16: I would love to visit the Inn at Crescent Cove. What a precious story in "Oceans Apart" by Lesley Ann McDaniel, and the description of the Inn just begs a visit. The ocean view, a sightseeing cruise, and lunch on the quiet porch...count me in. Lily with her lists reminds me of an earlier me, loving to make list after list and checking them off one by one. Her love of hospitality and making things just so is also right up my alley. Enter Matthew, hunk I could clearly picture from such detailed description, and we have a beautiful complete visit to the Inn. Their chemistry from first sight is reminiscent of my own husband of 25 years. Yes, such a sweet and fun story. I highly recommend.(Read in the Whispers of Love box set.)
this book was in a collection called "Whispers of Love". I didn't read the books in order I jumped all over the place as the authors were new to me.This is Matthew n Lily's story. There can be cold feet around "wedding days" and how to get past that if it doesn't happen especially if you doubt. Someone here was going to take a chance and shift there life place because of a relationship. It's a book in a series and there are good minor characters.
Good story. Sweet.
