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?
I'm so glad I got to read this book! I just adored it. These authors did a fantastic job of creating a world of characters around one specific event- a wedding gone wrong. Each story was individual and unique but it was that wedding link and some references to characters in the other stories that gave it that feeling of continuity and community. We see the wedding from the viewpoints of the wedding planner, the brother and a performer, the maid of honor and the groom, and the photographer and groomsman.
I loved the Charleston setting and the clear "southern" influence. Although, one story is set mostly in New York and that was fun too!
There is definitely no favorite for me in this collection. I loved them all and I think this was a very fun idea. I hope these authors will do this again!
