Book Thoughts by Rachelle:
I have loved reading this new novel, Wedding Belles, in four parts by four fantastic authors! There are four different stories within this one book. Start at the beginning and visit lovely Charleston, South Carolina as you get to know four different couples and fall in love! I’ve read several books by Melanie Jacobson and Jenny Proctor so I knew I would love this set. It was especially fun to be introduced to the writing styles of Becca Wilhite and Brittany Larsen. I enjoyed how each story was layered with connecting points to the other stories in the book. Having written a series collaborated in Echo Ridge, I know how tricky it can be to get all the moving parts working together. I thought it was fantastic how these authors were even able to develop foreshadowing for the other stories coming up–great job ladies!
These clean romances had plenty of spirit and spark in them. The characters were fun to get to know and I liked the range of unique personalities and interests. From food truck chefs to cellists, this novel has something for everyone to fall in love with. Oh, and the setting! I think I need to go visit Charleston, SC now!
Here’s more about the book:
Harper is an event planner with dreams of taking over the Charleston wedding scene . . . until she meets the biggest Bridezilla of her career. She needs the job, but the only way to keep it is to hire a temperamental chef with big dreams of his own.
Janie is a classical cellist booked to play a posh Charleston wedding. She’s excited to have the lucrative gig until the groom’s brother, Emmett, shows up and asks her to help him play a song he wrote for the happy couple. The only trouble? Emmett is her unrequited high school crush.
Lily has been Dahlia’s best friend, partner-in-crime, and now her maid of honor . . . until suddenly there’s no wedding, and she’s left to clean up Dahlia’s biggest mess of all. She’s been friends with Deacon, the jilted groom, for just as long, and it’s up to her to rescue him after Hurricane Dahlia blows through.
Sutton is a photographer running from her past. Only the pleas from her best friend to photograph her wedding could bring Sutton back to Charleston. Her plan is to get in and get out before her ex knows she and their daughter are in town. At least it’s the plan until she meets Max, who turns out to be the safe place she didn’t know she was looking for.
Can each of these couples trust their growing chemistry, or are they on the verge of new disasters?
