In the meantime, I've held a variety of jobs. Receptionist. Bookkeeper. Day care chef. Travel Agent. Building Manager.

    This was a very enjoyable story. Humorous and light-hearted. The dialogue moved along nicely and draws you right into Ella's "blissful" wedding day. I can't wait for more stories from this author.
