Summer is finally here and Geography teacher Sara Larson has exactly one month to find the perfect date for the wedding of a high school rival. The odds seem stacked against her, but the last thing she wants is to sit at the kids’ table again. Or even worse, the singles’ table. While trudging through an assortment of certified losers, Sara fights her attraction towards Ian, the irresistible guy next door.

Art teacher Ian McBride has a dream of opening his own gallery, but for now he’s focused on sculpting a gift for his grandparents’ 50th anniversary and enjoying a relaxing summer. However, Ian is blind-sided when crazy, beautiful Sara and her giant dog move in next door and rock his world. Too bad she wants nothing to do with him.

How can Sara avoid the attraction that sizzles between them and stick to her rule of not dating neighbors? As far as Ian’s concerned, the prince Sara is looking for is right under her nose. And one kiss just might change everything.

Giovanni Roma was jilted at the altar. Twice. Meeting Natalie is an enchanting distraction—too bad she’s engaged to another man. To top it off, Giovanni’s mother has a mouth with no filter and is obsessed with finding her son a suitable baby-maker.

Natalie DeMarco is a good cop with one problem. Cold feet. Her fiancé is a decent man, but she’s starting to wonder if decent is good enough. Maybe the doubts could be blamed on Giovanni, that guitar-making Italian hunk next door.

Giovanni knows he must do something, but things get out of hand when he learns he’s not the only one who objects to the wedding.

Dog Day Wedding is a fast, fun romantic comedy that gives new meaning to the term, “Shotgun Wedding.”

Interview

1) How did you come up with the idea for Dog Day Wedding?

It actually started out as a short story that I wrote in a creative writing class at Stanford. The title is based on the 1975 Al Pacino movie, Dog Day Afternoon. In the movie, Pacino robs a bank and ends up taking everyone hostage.

My story is a little lighter since it’s a romantic comedy. Okay, a lot lighter. The final scene is three chapters long and includes a wedding with hostages. Don’t worry…nobody dies and there’s plenty of red velvet cake for everyone!

2) What has been the worst piece of writing advice you’ve received?

That I needed to have over ten thousand followers on Twitter if I wanted to be taken seriously as an author. Isn’t that crazy? I mean, come on! Everyone knows the correct number is 9877. That’s when you know you’ve really made it.

3) You write romance. You’re a guy.

LOL. Okay, that’s not even a question! But I will tell you this: My obsession with romantic comedies can be traced back to 1989 when I watched When Harry Met Sally for the first time on the big screen. It was such a fun movie and I was hooked! I’ve since seen it about ten times, along with hundreds of other romantic comedies. Some of my favorites are Notting Hill, The Princess Bride, Love Actually, You’ve Got Mail, The Runaway Bride, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, There’s Something About Mary, Meet The Parents, and Groundhog Day, just to name a few. My first exposure to romantic comedy novels came when my wife gave me the book Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie. Loved it! I never considered writing anything else because I love the genre and can’t get enough of it. Many of my wife’s friends say she struck gold when she met me since most guys would much rather watch or read something with explosions or spaceships. Not me! Give me romance, baby!
