A Kiss is Just a Kiss (Magnolias and Moonshine #17) Melinda Curtis {Review}

A Kiss is Just a Kiss (Magnolias and Moonshine #17) by Melinda Curtis
Kindle Edition, 96 pages
Published April 27th 2017 by Purple Papaya, LLC
Kitty Summer has a wedding to stop. She's sure the groom doesn't love her sister, but how can she prove it? By testing his fidelity with one very public kiss, of course.

That one kiss leaves Kitty stranded in Florida without her purse or cell phone and with her dotty grandmother and one jilted groom, aka Beck O’Brien. With only her bridesmaid dress to her name, Kitty needs Beck to help her get Granny back to Atlanta. And Beck needs Kitty to help him locate his bride so he can win her back. But the closer they come to finding Maggie, the more Beck wonders if a kiss is just a kiss.
My Review: 4 Stars
I can think of plenty of ways to stop a wedding besides kissing the groom, but that's what Kitty does to try and prove that her younger sister's fiance, Beck, isn't really committed. Can you imagine?!

Kitty is a great character. As the oldest in my family too, I can understand her need to be there for her sisters, to protect them and help them. These sisters seem like a handful for sure, but I'm not sure that gives Kitty the excuse to do what she did--she took things a lot further than I would have! 

Understandably, she needs to work things out with her sister, Maggie, and ends up on a wild goose chase across Florida to find her--with a jilted groom and a crazy grandma as her sidekicks. And it's that situation right there that brings the humor, adventure, love, and tenderness to the story. I couldn't stop smiling and laughing at the antics that Grandma Dotty causes, which leave Beck and Kitty in the middle of the aftermath. Beck sure does handle the situation with more patience and gentleness than I ever could have imagined.

Even with all of the antics popping up all over the place, there is an solemn and sweet underlying thread that gently tugged on my heartstrings. I absolutely adored the ending, as well as the whole entire journey. This is one series that I don't want to miss.
