Synopsis:There's nothing like a wedding!
The joy, the fun, the memories—the stress. As a wedding planner, Anne Richardson has seen mothers of the bride turn into Momzillas, and she's determined not to do that when it's her daughter's turn to get married. But once Laney gets engaged, all bets are off. Anne becomes obsessed with giving Laney the perfect wedding she herself never had. And that wedding needs to be held in Icicle Falls at Primrose Haus, the perfect setting.
Roberta Gilbert, owner of Primrose Haus, has been hosting events at her charming Victorian for thirty years. She's an expert on weddings, but not on mother-daughter relations. When her daughter, Daphne, comes home and decides to help with the business, the receptions become truly memorable—and not in a good way. Then there's the added complication of Roberta's gardener, who seems more interested in Daphne than he is in planting primroses…
Tying the knot is a business that has everyone tied up in knots!
What I thought about the book:
It was so exciting to revisit Icicle Falls and hear what was happening in town with all of our friends. I felt connected with Daphne from the moment she came back to Icicle Falls and Roberta started talking to her. Hopefully in the next book we will see her find happiness. Anne and Laney were fun to get to know and watching Anne turn into a momzilla was kind of funny. But I know for Laney it was not so funny. In fact what I loved most about this book was the whole wedding theme. I enjoy reading and watching wedding planning shows and books. It is very true have the wedding you want so there will be no regrets. At the end of the book Sheila gives the memories of some of the residents of Icicle Falls and their weddings. I thought that was a nice way to end. Sheila's writing style helps you to become friends with each of the characters. You will want to visit this fun little town and meet all of the people who live there. Sheila's writing just flows. I am looking forward to the next book to come out.
What I think about the cover:
I always like the covers of Sheila's books. They show part of the town and make you want to jump right in the book to visit.
