Sister of the Bollywood Bride

Sister of the Bollywood Bride is adorable and earnest, in the best way.  Its clear-voiced protagonist reminded me of the recently-departed Beverly Cleary’s heroines in a way, and the whole book is beautiful and easy to sink into.  It’s sure to please teenagers and/or sophisticated middle grade ...

The Secret Bridesmaid

The Secret Bridesmaid is a delightful romantic jaunt through the life of an enterprising young professional who takes on a huge project, and bites off a little more than she can chew. Sophie Breeze has an unusual job, but it’s also a secret. Since managing her cousin’s wedding freak-out, Soph ...

The Worst Best Man

As soon as I saw the blurb for The Worst Best Man, I thought it sounded like it could be a very fun read. And I’m generally up for very fun reads. In the end, this book did have its good moments, but overall, it just didn’t quite work for me. In the prologue, we see that Max Hartley’s broth ...

Love Lettering

I put off writing a review for Love Lettering because I have so many mixed feelings about the book. I love the art of hand lettering and calligraphy, but I sometimes found the minute focus on the process and different styles (which I obsessed over while reading the text!) distracted my attention fro ...

The Pursuit of Jesse

When two characters with a long string of baggage collide, sometimes it results in a happily ever after. Usually, however, it takes a lot of opening the baggage and sorting through the contents before two burdened people can even get close to each other. When Jesse Taylor, brother of M ...

A Wedding at Leopard Tree Lodge

I expected to like A Wedding at Leopard Tree Lodge more than I did. It has an edgy heroine (purple streaks in her hair) with a mysterious past, and a really cool setting; if you're sick of the same old, same old, you can hardly beat Botswana for exotic. Unfortunately, I never really warmed to the he ...

Bridal Favors

If Connie Brockway can do it, why can't Hollywood? Bridal Favors is, to put it simply, as close to a perfect romantic comedy as you are ever likely to find. It's funny, charming, unputdownable, and contains at its heart an utterly adorable romance between two equally adorable characters. And, as I ...
