Wedding Belles by Beth Albright.
The Sassy Belles are back...
and this time, wedding bells are ringing!
Seven months pregnant and head over heels in love, Vivi Ann McFadden is busy pulling together the final details for her wedding to Lewis Heart, famous play-by-play announcer for the Crimson Tide. But with two wedding-planners-gone-wild, a psychic giving her advice, and the ceremony happening on the same day as the wildly popular Crimson Tide kickoff game, chaos reigns supreme. Luckily, maid of honour Blake O'Hara Heart is on the job. She'll tackle this wedding if it's the last thing she does!
But not everyone is cheering for the happy couple. News of the upcoming nuptials has brought Lewis's old flame back to Tuscaloosa-and she's got a secret that could mean the end of Lewis's marriage...before it even begins.
Sexy Southern fun...with a hint of magnolia
I'm glad y'all could read this review today. Reading this second book in the Sassy Belles series and I'm transported back to Alabama in the deep south and my southern twang is getting stronger. My review of the first book is here
These are not my usual read but I loved the first book and now I'm hooked. I love the way the Sassy Belles all stick together, the parties they have, the food they cook.
In this book,Viva is getting married to Lewis but as you would expect everything does not go to plan and we are left waiting until the last possible minute before we find out if the wedding goes ahead.
Sub plots are Blake's continuing affair with her first love Sonny while pretending to still have a marriage with her husband who has political ambitions,she has to stay with him until he's elected.
There were a few sex scenes here which I think were unnecessary and didn't match the flavour of the book. There is also the horrible Dallas who is Blake's former step sister and a newspaper reporter. She is trying her best to expose Blake's relationship with Sonny and will stop at nothing to get a good story.
American football had a part to play in this book and although I don't like football or reading about it this didn't spoil the story for me as it was in the background.
These book are written by Beth Albright who starred in the American series of Days of Our Lives and I could imagine them being run as a tv series too.
I enjoyed the southern humour and laughed my way through this book. If you're looking for a sunshine read on a cold winter's night then you'll enjoy the southern hospitality in this book. I would recommend you read the first book before any others to get to know the characters. To sum it up, friends, family and fun. The third book in the series,"Sleigh Belles" has now been released and I have it on my kindle to read along with some wine and chocolate of course.
Here's the trailer for the first book,it sets the scene.
Thanks go to the publisher who sent me a copy of the book in return for an honest review.
