Overview

A novel about chasing dreams, for better or worse, and living your love story.

Claire Linley is finally a bride! After nearly ten years with her college freshman sweetheart, Claire is going to become Mrs. Conner Whitley. She's got her bridal magazines, is the biggest Martha Stewart fan, and subscribes to all the major wedding blogs. She's been dreaming of this moment for years! How could planning her dream wedding be anything but perfect?

The easy-going and bubbly type, Claire will obviously have a blast planning, and with her fantastic group of girlfriends-made-bridesmaids she just can't go wrong. Whether it's wedding gown shopping, makeup trials, or cake-tasting, Claire's friends are there in a pinch.

But how big does the pinch get? All Claire wants to do is get married, but at every turn something seems to go awry and she's starting to lose it. How is a girl supposed to remain cool and collected when the pricey dream wedding planner isn't turning out to be so dreamy? When DIY projects and the perfect venue are going up in smoke? How is Claire supposed to marry Conner when the special day that's supposed to join them together, forever, is slowly tearing them apart?

This is the charming story about how sometimes the biggest events in life are defined by the smallest acts of kindness and love. It's a love story about dreaming large, loving deeply, and, in the end, truly having the happiest day of your life, no matter what happens (or doesn't). About what happens when girlfriends chase dreams.

While this Chick Lit is Book #4 in the When Girlfriends collection, it can be read as a stand-alone.

    4.5 stars




    Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. I read every free chance I had and finished it in about a day. I think this is my favorite one so far in the series. I was smiling the entire time I was reading this book.




    Claire has been waiting a looooong time to get engaged to her long-term (almost 10 years, in fact) boyfriend, Conner. After a super romantic proposal in Paris, it’s all about the wedding. And Claire has become a – too put it bluntly – bridezilla. Claire is an obsessed, Pinterest-pinning, fiance-driving-nuts, all out bridezilla. Even when she hires a wedding planner (UGH!), she is still crazy. I found it funny.




    I don’t think I will ever understand the stress that so many brides put themselves under while planning their wedding. I planned my wedding in about 6 months. That was from getting engaged, booking 2 days’ venues (we married one day and had the reception the next), making our own invitations/response cards/table cards, and finding the dress, tux, etc. I don’t get all of the stress and drama. However, the stress and drama does make for some really fun reading!




    Poor Conner. He’s a great guy and he put up with – and was incredibly supportive in his own way – so much from Claire. Even her best friends were there for her while telling her that she needed to calm down. Claire had some really great OMG! moments while preparing for her wedding. Conner and Claire had some pretty bad blowouts, too. Claire’s parents didn’t help the stress with their demands, additions to the guest list, and unwanted suggestions. The wedding planner hired by Claire was a ditz. But she was an interesting character to throw into the mix.




    I loved Robin’s announcement at the end. *SQUEEEEE* And Sophie’s new shop, The Cup and The Cake, sounds fabulous! I would love to eat there and I love the name! I’m excited for Lara and the progress she has made. Emily is still hanging around, not ready to move on just yet.  All of the girls are doing well. I loved how this book ended.




    All-in-all, this was a fun read that kept me glued to my Kindle from start to finish.




    Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book, especially if you have read the other books in the When Girlfriends series.




    Will I read it again: I may read this book again. It was a fun read. I can’t wait to read When Girlfriends Take Chances.




    (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)

    What do best girlfriends do when one of their own is chasing the

    What do best girlfriends do when one of their own is chasing the wedding planning dream?




    In When Girlfriends Chase Dreams, the fourth installment of the When Girlfriends ... collection, author Savannah Page transports the reader back to Seattle for another visit with the six best girlfriends that we've come to know and love: Claire, Sophie, Robin, Lara, Jackie and Emily. This time it's Claire's turn to tell her story! After nagging longtime boyfriend Conner Whitley to get married, Conner finally proposed to Claire in When Girlfriends Make Choices, now it's time for Claire to plan her wedding in eight months . Claire takes the reader along for the ride on her journey to the altar with hilarious wedding plan mishaps and bridezilla moments, and in true bestie spirit, her five girlfriends are there to share in all the joy that wedded bliss will bring the bride-to-be.




    There is nothing more enjoyable than reading a Chick Lit story about weddings, especially when you can relate to all the drama that the bride-to-be goes through when she is planning her special day. In When Girlfriends Chase Dreams, I found myself nodding my head, laughing and reminiscing about my own wedding as I followed Claire's journey down the wedding planning path to the altar. Every best laid plan can have snags, and Claire has her share in this entertaining story. Disagreements with her parents, picking fights with Conner, DYI snafus (and boy can I relate to these as I too did craft items for my wedding), to wedding planner and dress issues, our bridezilla sure had a hard time making final wedding plan decisions, but seriously girls... whose wedding plans have gone perfectly smooth with no hiccups?!




    I really enjoyed catching up with all six girlfriends, the author does a great job of intertwining all of the latest news about each of the girls within the main storyline. She has a smooth style of integrating snippets from the previous books' storylines into the current book that makes it easy for the reader to feel like they haven't missed a thing while waiting to read the next installment in the collection. This is such a fun collection to read, the six girlfriends continue to show what true friendship is all about: through good and bad times, thick and thin, ups and downs, and every trial and tribulation that befalls them, these six lovely ladies are supportive and always there for each other. I am looking forward to reading about Emily's story in the next installment in the collection, When Girlfriends Take Chances.




    If you are looking for a fast-paced, thoroughly fun and entertaining collection of Chick Lit stories that celebrates womanhood and the strong bonds of friendship, then When Girlfriends ... is a must read, you won't be disappointed!
