This isn’t my usual go to genre, don’t get me wrong I do like a good romance but not of the cutesy kind…BUT I am always willing to broaden my reading horizons, especially from an author (or I should say authors in this case) that I have read and enjoyed in the past and I am really glad I branched out because this was such a fun read, if a bit predictable.

The book is described as “Father of the Bride meets Bride Wars” and it is that but it is also so much more. It’s about forgiveness and letting go, letting your child make their decisions and or mistakes but it is done with a sense of humour. (Dad joke puns anyone?). It’s also a book about second chances and is more focused on the three parents’ past relationships than it is on the bride and groom, which was unique and refreshing.

Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke always manage to weave a seamless tale together so you can’t even tell it was written by two different people. Because it is fun and an easy read this would make for great beach fair. But as much fun as it was, it tended to be a bit on the repetitive side with the back and forth of the wedding planning and I just wasn’t interested in that.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the Advance Readers Copy.
