Book Description: Harper is an event planner with dreams of taking over the Charleston wedding scene . . . until she meets the biggest Bridezilla of her career. She needs the job, but the only way to keep it is to hire a temperamental chef with big dreams of his own.
Janie is a classical cellist booked to play a posh Charleston wedding. She’s excited to have the lucrative gig until the groom’s brother, Emmett, shows up and asks her to help him play a song he wrote for the happy couple. The only trouble? Emmett is her unrequited high school crush.
Lily has been Dahlia's best friend, partner-in-crime, and now her maid of honor . . . until suddenly there's no wedding, and she's left to clean up Dahlia's biggest mess of all. She's been friends with Deacon, the jilted groom, for just as long, and it's up to her rescue him after Hurricane Dahlia blows through.
Sutton is a photographer running from her past. Only the pleas from her best friend to photograph her wedding could bring Sutton back to Charleston. Her plan is to get in and get out before her ex knows she and their daughter are in town. At least it’s the plan until she meets Max, who turns out to be the safe place she didn’t know she was looking for.
Can each of these couples trust their growing chemistry, or are they on the verge of new disasters?
My thoughts: I loved the unique way this novel was presented. There are four stories that revolve around one event. Two prominent Charleston families will be joined as their children marry. It is a huge celebration with many people involved.
This story looks at four different aspects of the wedding: the wedding planner, the caterer, the string quartet, the maid of honor, and the photographer. The wedding flopped, but because of it a few great romances were set into motion.
I loved how seamlessly the stories came together. It took a lot of work and preparation for the author's to pull this off. I was very impressed at how talented each of them are. This book is worth reading. There are a few more people in the book who I would love to see find a happy romance, I hope that this is not the last "novel in four parts" book that I read from them.
