North of Forty is the new twenty...

Cecelia Carter, Sasha Simms, and Nadine Peterson have worked hard and gained the upper hand in work, life, and love. As curvy women in the bridal world, an industry that's more about size and image than about the actual marriage, they do their best to keep their clients focused on love, and a life well-lived beyond the "I do."

When Sasha's approached about doing a wedding reality series, she's intrigued, but she doesn't know if she can sell Cecelia on the idea. The format is supposed to focus on their bridal businesses, women's challenges in the business world, with a little bit of their personal lives thrown in, culminating in Cecelia's own upcoming wedding. It seems innocuous enough--until the cameras start rolling. And when they catch moments they shouldn't, things begin to spin out of control--Cecelia's vindictive ex looking for a payday. Nadine's engagement hanging in the balance over a secret that could ruin her life with her new fiancé. Sasha's boyfriend caught on camera, turning what she thought was a dream man into a heartbreaking nightmare. And Cecelia's own upcoming nuptials...

About the Author

From an early age, girls realize they live in an image and weight conscious world. Although, America says it believes bigger is better, that’s not the case when it comes to the beauty ideal.

Chamein Canton came of age in the eighties when big was cool as long as it referred to cars, male anatomy, and hair. Outside of that, there were no politically correct terms like plus-size, full-figured, or curvy. Chamein was diagnosed with uterine cancer. Her life’s purpose was instantly crystallized. The scale wasn’t her enemy, cancer was, and she fought for her life over several years.

Cancer was a game changer. Chamein forgot her obsession with size and approached life with a different attitude. She was eager to share what she’d learned the hard way through Down That Aisle in Style!: A Wedding Guide for the Full-figured Woman.

After cancer, Chamein was diagnosed with MS less than a year later. She was named MS Mother of The Year in 2002, four years after her initial diagnosis, as a result of an essay her twin sons wrote about her. She decided to do more to take plus-sizes from co-starring roles in romance, a genre of fiction that usually has covers of thin beauties in romantic poses with gorgeous men. Her novels feature full-figured female characters as the object of desire and not just the jolly chubby friend.
