Wedding Haters is an entertaining chick lit / romantic comedy wedding themed story that will keep you in stitches! In Wedding Haters, the second book of the Event To Remember series, author Melissa Baldwin weaves a sassy tale that follows the wedding planning trials and tribulations of bride Madison Wales. Told in the first person narrative, the reader follows Madison and her best friend and wedding planner Sienna Harris as Madison's perfect bridal plans are sabotaged by her meddling Grandmother and evil cousins Ellie and Stephy. Can Madison and Sienna save her wedding dreams and get it back on track, or should Madison and Cole go the easy route and elope? This was such a fun and lighthearted book to read, it had a great mixture of family drama, humor, romance, and a touch of mystery that kept me engaged and laughing as I followed the unfolding of the craziness of Madison's wedding planning debacle. Anyone who has been down the wedding planning route can relate to the craziness of the event, and how the best laid plans can unexpectedly go awry, especially when meddling family members add their two cents in the mix. I loved the witty dialogue and dramatic interactions between the characters; the wonderful friendship between Madison, Sienna, and Abby; and her sweet romantic relationship with Cole. I love reading wedding themed chick lit stories, and this one had just the right amount of entertaining drama and humor intertwined with an intriguing mystery twist that easily earns two thumbs up! Wedding Haters is a fast paced and thoroughly enjoyable chick lit story that will leave a smile on your face.
Did I enjoy this book: I really did. It was a fun read that anyone who has planned a wedding will find humorous! If you are currently planning your wedding, I would save it for your honeymoon! ;-) We join Madison and Cole as they plan their wedding with the help of Sienna. We pick up shortly after An Event to Remember . . . Or Forget leaves off. (You can see my review here.) Madison has an idea for her perfect day in mind, but as with most weddings, things don’t go exactly as she hoped. Her grandmother and cousins all have opinions about what should and should not happen with the wedding, including changing the plans Madison already made. I love Madison’s friends Sienna and Abby. Cole’s parents are such sweethearts. We also get an update on Ace and even Luke!! I laughed out loud. I gasped out loud. There were a few times that I just stared at the book with my mouth hanging open in disbelief. I couldn’t put it down. I loved it! Would I recommend it: Absolutely! If you liked An Event to Remember . . . Or Forget, you will definitely like this one! And even if you haven’t read An Event, you will like this fun chick lit read. Disclosure: I did some editing work on this title. After that work was completed, I was asked by the author to review the book. I received a copy of this book for review purposes. Although I was compensated for the editing work, it in no way affected the outcome of my review. My review is my honest opinion of the book.
