Not worth a read
Thought I was reading a book about women, but after the gratuitous sex scene between Courtney and Quinn I gave up. This book is more like the old romance novels that used Fabio on the covers. Sorry I paid $12 for this.
Road to Wedding Full of Emotions
Being involved in a family celebration, like a wedding, can be a daunting task. Emotions clearly lead some divisive, some joyful, some exhausting; but at the end, you hope to have been apart of a special event that will lead to lasting memories. In Susan Mallery’s new book, “Daughters of the Bride”, we get to join the planning process of this very decorative, one-of-kind, wedding leading to the big event. We meet the bride, Maggie, and her 3 adult daughters, Rachel, Sienna, and Courtney, who each are dealing with their interpretations of love, fear, their past and the possibilities for their future. Add some strong males who can handle these ladies, plus some great friends and you have the makings of a wonderful story.
The pages flow with each event setting the pace for the growth of each character, from engagement to cake tasting, to LA party to wedding day disasters. In the end, it’s the beauty of truly understanding yourself and the value of family that shines. Longer than previous books, this first time hardcover, is a delight to read and as a Susan Mallery fan, I eagerly await more stories like this one. “Daughters of the Bride” is perfect for all, regardless of whether a guest or planning a wedding, you too will relish in the pre-event adventures.
Here comes another read read!!!
***I was given an ARC copy of this book for a true and honest review***
I've long been a Susan Mallery fan, her Fool's Gold series was the first thing I read from her. Everything that Ms. Mallery writes is well written, laid out, and well developed. I had some preconceptions before reading this book about some hearts and flowers a beautiful bride and her lovely daughters - this story is that but so much more.
Maggie is getting her dream wedding after years of being alone. She and her daughters are gathered around her for this auspicious occasion.
Not everything is hearts and flowers because when your all together with your family that's always the potential for drama. Maggie's three daughters are Rachel, Sienna, and Courtney. They each bring their pwn emotional baggage with them. Rachel is a struggling divorced mother of a teenage son, Sienna is the flighty perennial fianee, and there's Courtney the youngest whom no one bothers overly with and who no is expecting anything remarkable from her. Having come toghter emotions are running high for everyone.
This story is about love of family, inner strength, and giving those in our lives second chances. I really emjopyed the book but flet that the tempo of the story was a little slow. Flipping between characters got to be a little confusing from time to time. Each daughters story could definitely been expan ded on or made into another book dealing especially with them their issues and relationships. Always Ms. Mallery has delivered another excellent book that engtages you, makes you laugh, and tugs at your heart.
