Book Review: The Christmas Wedding Guest
The Somerville sisters believe in love, but they’ve lost faith it will happen for them. Reggie hasn’t been home since the end of the world’s shortest engagement. When her parents decide to renew their vows, she buffs up her twinkle to help with the Christmas wedding. Unexpectedly, Toby, her first love, is back too, and the spark between them shines as brightly as ever. In the spirit of the season, will they let go of past hurts and greet the New Year together?
Done waiting for the one, Dena is pregnant and on her own—on purpose. But then a gorgeous, sad-eyed songwriter checks in to a room at her inn. Micah, unable to write since he lost his wife, finds inspiration in Dena’s determination to be a mom. One snowflake-speckled kiss and he’s a goner. But Dena is afraid to believe that a rock star could fall for a cookie-cutter small-town girl like her.
As the Christmas wedding draws closer, these two sisters just might unwrap the most treasured gift of all—love.
The Christmas Wedding Guest is the first book in this new series from author, Susan Mallery. While, I may not have been in "love" with this book, I did find the people that I was introduced to charming and look forward to getting to know more people better in Wishing Tree.
I liked sisters, Reggie and Dena. Although, my favorite is Dena. I applaud her for independent attitude. Plus, she was so likable and I connected with her instantly. I did like Reggie too. The second chance romance is sweet.
While, I did like this book, I felt like there times when it seemed to be wordy without much happening or progression in the story. Yet, I am still a fan of Susan and her books.
