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.

A must-read for anyone who has survived the wedding of a sister, a mother, a daughter—as told by #1 New York Times bestselling author and master storyteller Susan Mallery!



Review

"There's more to her than meets the eye."

This was an absolutely beautiful story about four wonderful women. Each one of them unique in their own way, but one thing that bonds them all...love.

This story is all about Maggie and her three daughters. Each daughter is struggling with a personal issue, and everything comes pouring out while planning their mother's upcoming wedding.

I adored each of the sisters!
Courtney, Sienna, and Rachel are all in different places in their love life, and their journeys take us through life and love in the truest of fashions.

"She knew the danger. Love hurt. Always. Every kind. If you loved someone, you were going to get hurt. It was a given. She didn't want that. Not ever."

Courtney was awkward, but fun. She had amazing strength. She had dreams that she kept hidden, but with one look from Quinn, she knew her life would never be the same.
Goodness me, I loved that man!

Sienna was always "the pretty one", but that didn't mean she had her life together. After many engagements, she could never really settle down. Something just wasn't right and she couldn't figure out why love never truly found her.
But maybe true love had been there all along<3

Rachel was my favorite character. She was a struggling, single mom who was trying desperately to hate her ex-husband. I mean, he cheated on her for goodness sake! But sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants, and the only way to be happy again is to give in.

"She was a walking, breathing fantasy and she had absolutely no clue. How could he resist that?"

Their were so many stories within this book and I cherished them all!

Every character was perfectly woven into the story line and it painted a perfect picture.
You felt like part of their family!

I almost wish that there would be a continuing story just to see how everyone is doing some time later! I loved the ending sooooo much, but I'm selfish, and I want more;)

Beautiful story from Susan Mallery!!

"Loving someone means giving your whole heart and once you do that, you have no defenses. You're at their mercy."
