Book Review: "The Wedding Party"

Book Review: "The Wedding Party" by Robyn Carr

Book Description:
Charlene Dugan started her day as usual -- single. Then, all in the space of a few hours:
Her daughter announced she doesn't want to "end up like her". Her absentminded mother got lost in a parking lot.
Her ex-husband accused her of being afraid of commitment.

Now her decision to utter those three little words -- let's get married -- has everyone around her in a tailspin. The maid of honor is in a tempest over a man of fifteen years her junior. Her daughter, the official bridesmaid, has decided to reinvent herself. The groom is spending all of his free time with the wedding consultant. And her ex-husband, a man who still drives her crazy, is making some pretty convincing arguments for a second chance.

The wedding party is out of control, they're calling for rain and the bride has cold feet. This isn't exactly what Charlene had in mind.
I have read the Grace Valley series by Robyn Carr as well as a couple of her earlier 'stand alone' books. I have enjoyed them all. "The Wedding Party" is no exception. I can't tell you it was one of those books you just can't put down (well until you are about 2/3 of the way done). It was funny and well written. I read a review of this book saying it was 'predictable'. I didn't necessarily find that was the case. I wasn't really sure how it was going to turn out. The only gripe I have is that the story was just crusing along and then BOOM it was the end and abruptly everyone had their stories 'completed' so to speak. All in all, I still recommend this book.
Happy Reading!
