This was such a romantic book! It was sweet. I believe that this book is a terrific read for so many people. There are tons of wedding hints, family tips, and recipes shoved into this book it’s worth buying it just for that!! (Oh and I so want to try the crème brulee wedding cake!!)
I adored Emma. I liked her attitude – though she did seem a bit too perfect to me. Her only real ‘faults’ were that she refused to acknowledge God and avoided her parents. Not that they aren’t doosies but other than that she almost seemed too good to be true.
Emma’s Aunt Sophie was the crown jewel of the book. I thought she was absolutely the best! I loved how the author showed how wonderful and innocent some people become when they get the dreaded disease – Alzheimer’s.
What I didn’t like about the book: Emma’s parents. I really liked that the author showed the value of marriage, how one marriage can effect so many others, and the importance of sticking through the rough spots but even though I understood and know that things like that really happen it irked me! (Sorry, no spoilers here!)
|Buy or Borrow:||Buy!!|
|Steam:||I’d give it a PG. There was some smooching but it was a really classy romance.|
