Holiday Wedding was a lighthearted and feel-good romance that put me in the mood for Christmas! I love reunion romances. There is nothing more satisfying than when a hero and heroine reconnect after being apart for a time and they overcome obstacles to find happiness together. I read Robyn Neeley’s book, Destination Wedding, so I was familiar with Drew and Lauren’s past relationship, which made me root for them all the more. Drew is true hero material despite his inability to previously commit to Lauren, his soul mate, who he loved so much she inspired a line of dolls for his family's toy company. I think many women could relate and sympathize with Lauren’s frustration, especially when they had been together for nine years. After being apart for a year and then reconnecting, the chemistry and sexual tension between the characters sizzled, which kept me turning the pages. A wonderful supporting cast really added to the storyline. Lauren’s sidekick Miles is the perfect bff and he always made me smile. Snow Frost Mountain was a romantic and whimsical setting for a Christmas romance. I loved the role the townspeople played in bringing Drew and Lauren back together. I would love to spend Christmas there! Holiday Wedding makes you believe that Christmas wishes can come true!
Reviewed by Kim for Read Your Writes Book Reviews Holiday Wedding is the companion book to Destination Wedding. What does that mean? Well, the main and secondary characters from Destination Wedding are all in this book. If you read Destination Wedding, you HAVE to read Holiday Wedding. And, if you haven’t read Destination Wedding, you’re still in luck, because Holiday Wedding can be read as a standalone. In Destination Wedding, Drew Cannon and Lauren Kincaid were supposed to get married in a beautiful destination wedding in Hawaii. Unfortunately, Lauren called off the wedding shortly before it was supposed to take place, after she realized that Drew really wasn’t ready to get married although they had been together for over nine years. It’s now been over a year and the two are about to be reunited when Drew’s father marries his twin brother’s fiancee’s mother. Once all the kids have gathered together, Luke and Drew’s father informs everyone that he and Vanessa, Kate’s mother, eloped. They now want to give their wedding to Luke and Kate. Under protest, the two agree. But Luke decides that he wants Kate to have her own special day and he knows just the place to make it happen. But being the head of a toy company during the holiday season is a very bad time to disappear and plan a wedding in two weeks. So, Luke strongly suggests that Drew and Lauren travel to Snow Frost Mountain to plan the perfect wedding. And while they are there, they are to come up with a new marketing scheme to sell Drew’s Happily Ever After dolls, which have been a huge holiday bust. Holiday Wedding didn’t blow me away. But it had me smiling from the beginning of the book. I don’t recall there ever being a time when I was bored with the book or was ready for it to end. In fact, I came to a realization about the book early on, which had me smiling even more. I have to admit that when I sat down to write this review, I spent a lot of time trying to get how much I liked/loved this book across. In the end, I realized that my liking the book so much translated to me wanting to talk about the book and giving all kinds of details. The details Robyn Neeley put into the book is what makes it so special. There’s a reason why Christmas and romance go together like hot chocolate and marshmallows on a cold winter’s day. Robyn has managed to mix the spirit and magic of Christmas with romance into a story of discovery, wonderment, love, and second chances. **Received a copy from Crimson Romance in exchange for an honest unbiased review.** Rating: 4.5
This novel had the most absolutely ridiculous premise ever. At the same time, she made everything completely believable and utterly unforgettable. I absolutely loved it! I devoured this one in a single sitting. I couldn’t stop laughing throughout. At the same time, Neeley also made me cry, once for sadness, and once, for a perfectly happy ending. Her vivid descriptions bring this Christmas town to life, allowing readers to enter the story as participants rather than simply spectators. The characters in this novel were fantastic. The creative manner in which Neeley developed them, both who they are today and the events that made them those people, captured my attention. I felt like I really and truly got to know and understand them as individuals. The intrinsic elements that make them who they are also made this story what it was. Surrounded by this fantastic and well developed supporting cast of friends and family, I felt like I was part of this extended family. This was definitely a fantastic comedic romance that will put anyone into the spirit of Christmas. I’d highly recommend it to one and all. I’m also counting down the days until Christmas next year when I’ll be reading it again. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
