An Event to Remember or Forget by Melissa Baldwin Excerpt & Giveaway
An Event to Remember... or Forget Sienna Harris is a girl with a plan. Her days of slaving away at Carrie’s Classic Events and More are numbered as she is on the brink of launching her own event planning company. Her relationship with Luke Price is headed in the right direction and they are approaching their one-year mark. The future is looking bright and she knows that life could not get any better . . . That is until her perfectly planned world is thrown upside down by the unexpected arrival of someone from Luke’s past. She receives the shock of her life on the night of the biggest event of her career. Sienna will now have to pull it all together without a list or a plan. The question is, can she do it?
I made it to spinning class two mornings in a row; I’m on fire. It’s 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning. Craig, Nicole, and I are waiting at Bonjour for Carrie to arrive.
“Let’s take bets on if she actually comes, twenty bucks she’s
a no-show,” Craig demands.
Bonjouris the most adorable little breakfast café, and the food is amazing. We sit at the
same table, and the staff always takes very good care of us.
“Sienna?” says a voice behind me. Oh no, it’s Luke. This is
pretty awkward considering we haven’t spoken since I let him have it the other
night. I don’t count the few “I’m really sorry” and “I love you” texts he sent.
He is with a few co-workers that I recognize but don’t really know well.
“Are you having a work meeting?” he asks. He waves to Craig
and Nicole. They both say hi, looking very curious about our obvious awkwardness.
I’m sure they will force me to explain it before I leave this meeting.
“Yeah, we are just waiting on Carrie as usual.” I roll my eyes.
“Ah yes, the infamous Carrie. I still can’t believe that I’ve
never met her, only heard the stories,” he says, laughing.
considering she’s hardly ever in town, that’s not surprising,” I reply.
Coincidentally, at that very moment, the front door flies open and there she is
in head to toe designer couture.
“So sorry I’m late, had to take a call. I need a double
espresso,” she calls as she saunters over to our table. Luke and I are still
engaged in our awkward conversation. Carrie approaches and pulls off her Prada
sunglasses staring directly at Luke.
