Book Review: "Wedding Bell Blues" by Linda Windsor

The Piper Cove Chronicles Book 1

Book Description:

Not even a big budget can help Alex make her sister's wedding the event of the year. The usually calm and collected Alex is rattled when the man who walked out on her sixteen years ago to pursue a rock-and-roll career returns to be the best man.

In desperation, she calls on her three best friends to help pull off the shindig, and keep her away from the devastatingly handsome Josh. Tomboy Ellen, shy Jan, and vivacious Sue Ann join forces to keep Alex on track.

But fate won't be stopped in this small seaside town. Alex finds it as impossible to avoid Josh as it is to deny that he's a changed man. Is it too late for their love? Only faith, family, and best friends will tell.

My Thoughts:

I can't believe how long it took me to read this book. Not because it wasn't good, because it was. But between deep cleaning the house, getting ready for vacation, and starting my exercise routine again, I've been busy. By evening I've just been ready to fall into bed.

I finally finished it tonight. Once again, I wish I could have read this book in more solid chunks of time. Now that my major work is done, I just be able to spend more time this summer reading.

I was really looking forward to reading the first book in a new series. I enjoyed learning the town and the characters. However, I thought it moved just a little too fast. Josh and Alex had divorced 16 years earlier and hadn't talk since. Then all of a sudden he's back in town and before you know it they are back together.

I'm going to chalk my discontent up to not being able to focus on reading this book. I'll give this series another chance when the next book is released.
