Marriages are a matter of business for wedding planner Anne Richardson and wedding venue owner Roberta Gilbert, but when Anne's daughter, Laney, decides to wed, things get personal, as Anne sets out to make sure Laney has the wedding she wants. But is it really Laney's wedding she's planning? Multiple viewpoints provide insight as four women at different life stages resolve a few issues and come into their own as romance—old, new, and unplanned—blooms. Recipes, wedding tips, and cameos of past weddings will please series fans.
VERDICT Sweet, affecting, and emotionally charged, this multithreaded story highlights the complex relationships between mothers and daughters, and while more women's fiction than pure romance, this is sure to appeal to fans of both genres. Roberts (The Lodge on Holly Road) lives in the Pacific Northwest.
