I can’t begin to tell you how much fun this book is! I laugh out loud! This is real entertainment. A real escape from the stressful world we live in. Although this book is slow in some places, it is a great book overall. This is the first book I read by this author and it won’t be my last. She captured my interest throughout the book, and for most of the book, I wanted it to go faster.
I enjoyed her characters and could definitely feel close to them. I found myself screaming at the characters and for the characters. For me, that’s my standard for a truly exceptional book.
Sara Harrington has always felt that she has to be a responsible person, she is focused on her career and is an event organizer. She was dating Carter, that was until her sister Mariel showed up and now Mariel and Carter Pryce are getting married. Saddened by this, Sara moves from California to Chicago and has no intention of forgiving her sister. When Sara’s mother calls from Connecticut and brings her back to her hometown under false pretense, she is really upset that her sister Mariel is there. Things really get interesting when one of Mariel’s bridesmaids cancels their date and Mariel thinks Sara is going to step up. Sibling rivalry reminds me of my own childhood, I had to take responsibility while others did whatever. Author Mary Simses brings the book to life with Sara thinking she still wants Carter, running into David and the way Sara is trying to put the artwork back together, Her Mom always seems to sided with Mariel. A great read and a book that really gets you out of your life right now.
I loved the book, until the very abrupt ending. The book ends and ends too quickly compared to all the plots that preceded it. I absolutely loved the book until the last 3 or 4 chapters. They are very short. All of Mary’s books are light and funny, and I enjoyed all of them, but this one could definitely have more meat for the ending.
