Overview

You’re invited to a sunny beach town
for a witty, heartwarming romance.

When Brody broke up with Paige and went to Europe, he suggested that someday, they’d pick up right where they left off. A hopeless romantic, she believed him.

But when they meet again, Brody’s dating a gorgeous actress.

They’re all going to attend the same wedding, and Paige plans to win Brody back. She even enlists her best friend’s brother, Aiden, to pretend to date her and make her ex jealous. A breezy, charming restaurant owner, Aiden actually avoids serious relationships, but as a fake boyfriend, he’s perfect.

As old friends and exes take part in wedding preparations and enjoy the beauty of the Florida coast, they begin to see themselves—and each other—in a new light.

This summer romance includes a free Hallmark original recipe for BBQ Brisket Tacos with Sunshine Slaw.

I was looking for something light and entertaining to read and this book was the perfect choice. This story is heart-warming and has a classic “Can best friends ever fall in love?” type of storyline. I loved the character of Paige in this book. She’s sweet, funny, caring, and totally certain that all she needs to be perfectly happy is to win Brody back again. Aiden, (who himself is a handsome, charming, and totally nice guy), come up with a plan to make Brody jealous by pretending that he and Paige are a couple. Paige thinks she knows what she needs to be happy, but as their plan progresses, things don’t seem to be as clear to her as before. The setting of this story made me wish I could be reading this book at the beach. But no matter where you read it, you’ll enjoy this sweet and clean story. I’ll be watching for other books by this author. I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

Plenty of Weddings Rachel Magee's romance novel "Beach Wedding Weekend" was published by Hallmark Publishing. The novel starts in Hilltop in Hill country in Texas. Paige Westmoreland, a hopeless romantic, is a wedding planner who hopes that the current wedding is "the perfect wedding". Aidan Pierce, one of the guests, makes it just in time, but she did not plan that Brody Paxton, her ex-boyfriend, shows up as well and brings Sasha Kane, an actress, with him. Cold vegetarian meals, bridesmaids dresses in burnt orange color, cake which is tasting like cardboard, ... there are plenty of other things that are going wrong, but most of all Paige is hurt because of Brody's betrayal. At the next wedding of Paige's friend Georgia with Lane the three-step-goal "Get-Brody-Back" in order that Paige can win Brody back. Aidan, the brother of Ciera, another of Paige's friends, is willing to play Paige's boyfriend since one of the steps is to make Brody jealous. But Paige is also playing Aidan's girlfriend to help him with investors who are at the wedding and who want to buy his restaurant "Cedar Break." It ought to be safe because Aidan "does not do serious relationships." But things do not turn out as planned. This is the first book by Rachel Magee. I highly recommend it since it I easy to read. It is a clean and wholesome romance story with enjoyable and believable characters. I really liked the advice that Aidan's gram is giving to Paige: "All you have to do is let the beauty within you shine and the rest will fall into place." The book also includes a special Hallmark recipe: BBQ Brisket Tacos with Sunshine Slaw. The complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley free of charge. I was under no obligation to offer a positive review. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. #BeachWeddingWeekend #NetGalley

What’s the popular advice to be happy in today’s world? Aren’t we supposed to take care of ourselves? One of the best ways for me to relax and have “me time” is to read a Hallmark book. And Beach Wedding Weekend is a perfect way to give yourself the joy of relaxing. Whether you read it on the beach, your front porch, or with your doggie on your bed, you will adore the main character, sweet Paige. The author does a wonderful job of placing us in Paige’s world. Whether she is in the Texas Hill Country at a gorgeous resort, or at Florida’s Emerald Coast for a weekend wedding, you will feel like you have been there! And if you are like me, you will want to plan your next vacation on the white sandy beach, by the blue-green water.Oh, what a lovely movie this would make! Page is a wedding planner, and I don’t believe there is one as pretty, kind, and organized as she is. She longs to get back with her old boyfriend, Brody. So, she and her gal pals come up with a plan to get him back during the wedding weekend. They plan a cute diversion, but they forgot to plan for Aiden. Many of us are looking for a guy like Aiden! Especially the way he is described in the book. No wonder he has an effect on Page! Readers, you will enjoy all the characters in the book. Sasha is an especially interesting character. Be good to yourself and read Beach Wedding Weekend. Thank you Hallmark Publishing via NetGalley for the ARC copy of this book. This is my honest opinion.

Eleven months ago the love of her life walked away from their relationship for a job overseas, and there hasn't been a day that has went by that she hasn't thought of him. Paige thought they were headed towards something more permanent, like a forever kind of thing, but when he left he took their future with him and left her alone and brokenhearted. Now she has learned that Brody has come back home, and before she can get excited about a possible reunion she learns that he didn't come alone. He replaced her with a gorgeous actress, and there is no possible way she can compete with that... or can she? Then her friend Aiden offers up a solution to her problem, he'll play her fake boyfriend for a weekend while their attending a mutual friends wedding, and use their "relationship" to make Brody jealous and help him to realize what he is missing out on. Paige reluctantly agrees to this little plan, but after a few faux steamy moments her heart starts to lead her down another path... Beach Wedding Weekend will charm you with it's perfectly crafted words and endearing cast of characters, it's captivating and so good for the heart! I loved this first time read, it's pages held humorous moments that made me giggle, tender moments that touched my heart, and steamy moments that made me swoon. This light-hearted friends to lovers tale satisfied on all fronts, the words were addictive, and the characters told a believable story that left me aching for more! Highly recommend you get your hands on this one, it's certain to leave your heart singing it's praises! I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.

Another stellar Hallmark book! The cover is also beautiful and the very first thing that piqued my interest when I got the book. Beach weddings, fake relationships, and your typical romantic comedy tropes...but with much more depth. The character development, plot, and setting were all excellent and kept me interested from page one to the epilogue. Also you will gush over the dolphin scene; reminded me of past family vacations out on the beach, except there were no dolphins sadly. Definitely a book you don't want to miss!

I loved this book! The way the author writes you can feel the sand, hear the waves and picture everything in your mind. If you love the beach and want a good clean romance grab this book. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. Thank you Hallmark Publishing via NetGalley for the ARC copy of this book. This is my honest opinion.

This is a delightful and fun story that is predictable but a great read anyway. It starts off in Hilltop, Texas where Paige is a wedding planner for a resort. She dated Brody for a about eleven months before he headed to Europe, saying he would be back. One year later and having not heard from him, he returns with a beautiful actress. Hurt and determined to remind him of what they had before, she and her best friend's brother, Aiden, pretend to be dating. The whole group of friends travel to the Northwest Florida panhandle and Seacrest Beach on 30A for a wedding the following weekend. Paige and two other friends are bridesmaids for their friend and Brody is one of the groomsman. I enjoyed watching Paige and Aiden work together to try to make Brody jealous but sometimes things backfire. Aiden needs Paige's help with a business deal he is working on during the weekend so they spend a lot of time with each other. The beach setting is great. I live near 30A and it is a beautiful and popular area with what we call sugar white sands and fun restaurants and activities. The characters are likable, loyal to each other and fun loving. This is a great, quick fun romance. I received a complimentary ARC from Hallmark Publishing through NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are mine only.

Sheer Perfection! I laughed. I cried. I loved Beach Wedding Weekend by Rachel Magee. This sweet romance delivers all the feels as wedding planner Paige enlists her best friend Aiden in Operation Wedding Weekend, a plan to win back the man who left her behind a year ago. But Paige’s best-laid plan goes awry and leads to true love in this delightful story. Rachel Magee does such a good job of describing Seacrest’s sugar sand and warm gulf waters that I could practically feel the tropical breezes while I was reading. Her characters spring to life on the page. I look forward to reading more stories about Paige and her friends in the future. This review reflects my honest opinion of Beach Wedding Weekend, although I do thank NetGalley and Hallmark Publishing for providing an ARC of the book.

Magee concocts the perfect recipe for romance. Heartache and humor with a good dosage of wisdom thrown in for good measure. Beach Wedding Weekend gives what if a little spit shine and focuses on the right now. Paige gave her heart to a far off dream and found her forever a tad closer to home. Sugar meets spice and delivers heartwarming.
