Today’s book review features
Always a Wedding Planner: 4-in1 romance collection by R.L. Ashly, Leeann Betts, Toni Shiloh, & Davalynn Spencer.
Love Is Only Business for 4 Wedding Planners
Discover how keeping secrets from each other threatens four women’s friendships, wedding business, and own ability to find love in Loveland, Colorado.
Business partners Felicity Edwards, the cake baker; Kiki Bell, the seamstress; Cassie Blackthorn, the coordinator; and Chef Saffron Delarosa are best of friends in a town that is a romantic wedding destination for many couples—who work together at Weddings by Design to make every bride’s special day perfect. Could each falling into their own romance be the key to working out their differences and learning to trust each other—and God—with their futures?
If you’ve read my blog for long, you know I love novella collections. Usually, however, they’re historical novellas, so Always a Wedding Planner was a wonderful opportunity to read a couple contemporary romances about four friends who work together as wedding planners.
Some of the stories were serious, some funny. One had scheming kiddos, another had a series of unfortunate events. What I loved most of all was the diversity represented in the characters. It made the stories more real, like there really is a Weddings by Design company with people like Felicity Edwards, the cake baker, Kiki Bell, the seamstress, Cassie Blackthorn, the coordinator, and Chef Saffron Delarosa at the helm.
I enjoyed these four stories and I look forward to reading more books by these authors. In fact, one author, Toni Shiloh, is part of a Christmas novella collection releasing on October 26 called Home for the Holidays. I’m on the launch team for that one and can’t wait to read it!
