Sunshine Smart, what a name, and she has the personality to fit the hippy lifestyle inspired title. She covers her face, body and feet with explosions of colour and odd accessories. The brighter and the more obscure the make-up and clothes, the better.
Not many people realise that the bangles, bows, heels and thick layers of eye-shadow are an effective and well constructed wall she has drawn around herself. The wall is to keep intruders out and her real emotions in. Behind the jolly smile and the cheerful attitude lives a saddened heart.
Sunshine is hiding a secret pain, the kind of pain that always remains just under the skin and never completely disappears. Leo has no idea what she has been through and misinterprets her behaviour and reactions to certain situations.
Thrown together at the whim of their two best friends, Leo and Sunshine have no choice but to work with each to create a wedding celebration to remember. Kudos to the author for creating a sub=plot about same gender marriages in this short yet lively romance.
