With Joy, Love, and a Little Trepidation Courtney, Sienna and Rachel Invite You To the Most Emotional Wedding of the Year… Their Mother's
Courtney ~ The Misfit ~
As the awkward one, Courtney Watson may not be as together as her sisters, but she excels at one thing—keeping secrets, including her white-hot affair with a sexy music producer. Planning Mom's wedding exposes her startling hidden life, changing her family's view of her—and how she views herself—forever.
Sienna ~ The Free Spirit ~
When Sienna's boyfriend proposes—in front of her mom and sisters, for crying out loud—he takes her by surprise. She already has two broken engagements under her belt. Should she say "I do" even if she's not sure she does?
Rachel ~ The Cynic ~
Rachel thought love would last forever…right up until her divorce. As Mom's wedding day draws near and her ex begs for a second chance, she's forced to acknowledge some uncomfortable truths about why her marriage failed, and decide if she'll let pride stand in the way of her own happily ever after.
This book is about a mother's wedding and her three daughters love lives. Each of the three sisters is different. You can see by the blurb who they are. It's like three mini stories taking place in one book. There were parts of all three that i enjoyed but Courtney was the stand out for me. She's supposed to be not as smart as her other sisters but she has secrets that will change that idea. Quinn is her boss's grandson and a bit older but the chemistry between them sizzles on the page. Sienna gets engaged for a third time in a surprise attack from the boyfriend she's not even sure she loves. What kind of sucked for her story is the guy she should be with is obvious to everyone but her and so we don't get to see them figure it out til the end. Felt a bit cheated with their romance. Rachel the oldest sister took care of her other sisters growing up and is cheated on by her husband so she divorces him and now two years later she still loves him but can't forgive him. With his help and her sisters she slowly figures out how to leave the past behind and let go of the need to do it all on her own. Overall i enjoyed the book but Courtney is the sister i enjoyed the most. I think her part of the story was the most fleshed out and detailed. The three girls mother gets married in this book too and i was not impressed with her but it was fun to see the girls deal with all the wedding hoopla. Not one of Susan Mallery's best books but still a enjoyable read.
