“The Bride’s Runaway Billionaire” wraps up Pippa Grant’s delightful Three BFFs and a Wedding series with a bang, combining the charm and wit fans have come to adore from the preceding novels. This final installment intertwines the worlds of a jaded optimist and a heartthrob celebrity in a tale that’s rich with humor, heart, and a hint of the unexpected. While it shines on its own, diving into this book after enjoying “The Worst Wedding Date” and “The Gossip and the Grump” deepens the narrative, weaving a tapestry of interconnected stories that enchant and entertain.

The story kicks off with a solo honeymoon in Fiji, a sanctuary from a wedding fiasco that catapulted our heroine into social media infamy. Her plan for solitude quickly derails upon discovering Jonas Rutherford, a dazzling movie star with a freshly tarnished heart, passed out on her doorstep. What begins as an act of kindness quickly spirals into a whirlwind fling that checks every box on the romcom checklist, including irresistible chemistry and spontaneous adventures. However, the idyll is shattered as quickly as it started, leaving our heroine to pick up the pieces of what was meant to be a no-strings-attached escapade.


Fast forward three years and the stakes are higher, the emotions deeper, and the complications more tangled than ever. The unexpected re-entry of Jonas into her life under the glaring lights of another wedding throws our protagonist for a loop. The revelation of their son, a delightful toddler who steals every scene he’s in, adds layers of complexity and tenderness to a narrative already rich with emotional depth. Jonas’s journey from ghosting heartthrob to doting father and potential partner is both compelling and touching, offering a redemption arc that satisfies the soul.

Grant’s signature humor is in full force, with witty banter, laugh-out-loud scenarios, and characters so vividly drawn they leap off the page. The presence of a pet chicken with more personality than some humans offers comic relief and whimsy, grounding the story’s more fantastical elements in a relatable, if slightly quirky, reality.

Yet, at its core, “The Bride’s Runaway Billionaire” is a story about second chances, the complexities of modern love, and the messy, beautiful journey toward finding happiness. It explores themes of responsibility, the consequences of fame, and the courage it takes to love openly and honestly in the face of uncertainty. Grant skillfully navigates these waters, delivering a romance that is both escapist and earnest, with enough emotional heft to make the heart swell and the eyes mist.

Pippa Grant delivers yet another home run with this delightful addition to her series. After devouring the first two books, I was thrilled to dive into Emma’s journey, enriched by the return of beloved characters.

Emma’s life turned viral when a video of her dramatic altar exit hit the internet. Seeking refuge from her broken heart and relentless media, she embarks on a solo honeymoon, only to find Jonah Rutherford, a billionaire movie star and her secret crush, passed out on her bungalow’s porch. Both seeking escape, they form a bond that quickly escalates into a passionate fling, leaving Emma alone and unexpectedly pregnant when Jonah vanishes the next day.

Fast forward three years, Emma has rebuilt her life, cherishing her role as a mother, when Jonah crashes back in, discovering his unexpected paternity.

Witnessing Emma and Jonah navigate their complex situation is a rollercoaster of emotions, seamlessly blending humor, heartache, and romance. Grant has a unique talent for weaving laughter into her narratives, making each moment more memorable. The close-knit community backdrop adds depth, showcasing the intricate bonds that connect each character.

This story is a testament to love’s resilience and the unexpected paths to happiness. A Pippa Grant novel never disappoints, and I eagerly await her next masterpiece.

This novel is a fitting conclusion to a series that has blended the fantastical with the deeply human, offering readers a final voyage into a world where love, however improbable, reigns supreme. Pippa Grant has once again demonstrated her prowess in crafting romances that are as thoughtful as they are thrilling, leaving readers satisfied yet wistfully longing for more tales from the enchanting universe she’s created.

The Bride’s Runaway Billionaire

Having a vacation fling with your celebrity crush is fun and easy with no strings attached, right?

A solo honeymoon in Fiji to recover from the viral wedding disaster that almost had me married to the wrong man? Yes, please.

Tripping over my number one celebrity crush, who is hungover and asleep on my bungalow porch? Not exactly in the plans, but I can roll with it.

Turns out Jonas Rutherford, Razzle Dazzle movie star and heir to the entertainment conglomerate’s billions, is hiding here too after details of his scandalous divorce went public.

I didn’t think inviting him in for a hangover cure would lead to us getting friendly. And friendlier. And then—okay, yes.

I slept with him. Who can blame a girl? When you’re suddenly single and the number one guy on your freebie list is available, you leap.

But when I wake up the next morning, I discover I’m not the only runaway.

He’s ghosted me.

It’s fine. I’m fine. Neither one of us is in a position to start an actual relationship.

But three years later?

When he crashes my brother’s wedding?

Where the son that he’s just discovered we have is serving as ring bearer?

Life was a lot easier when I was just a runaway bride.
