Wedding season has arrived in New York Times best-selling author Mary Alice Monroe's next novel in the "distinct, complex, and endearing" (Charleston Magazine) Lowcountry Summer series, set against the romantic, charming Charleston Lowcountry.
Nothing could be more enchanting than a summer wedding - or two! - in Charleston's fabled Lowcountry. A centuries-old church, an avenue of ancient oaks dripping moss, a storied ballroom, a sand dune at sunset....
Yet when a stranger arrives, a long-held family secret could silence the bells ringing for the Muir sisters. Scandals surface, family bonds are questioned, and promises are broken and renewed.
In A Lowcountry Wedding, Monroe delves into the heart of marriage, commitment, and family ties.
Huffington Post calls the Lowcountry Summer series "the perfect beach read and a whole lot more".

I was so excited to read this story but am unable to finish it because the narration is so irritating to me. I will look for the book in the library at some point so I can finish the second half. I tried so hard to make peace with the voice reading the story, which is that of the author, but it is so shaky and obviously that of a much older person trying to read the parts of young people. Totally threw me off course every time I turned it on. Sorry, Ms. Monroe, just couldn't suffer through it.
Boring and predictable
No, the performance was the worst part.
I have been listening to Audible for many years, this was the worst book I have ever listened to.
I'm glad I listened to A Lowcountry Wedding. It is a lite 'read' which is what you expect from the author. Though it isn't only a wedding story. The summer girls continue with their stories. Everyone, including granny James, must get used to Harper owning Seabreeze. Momma and granny go a few rounds again. There is a good plot twist in this one. Of course they all end happily ever after which is why I like MAM books. Either MAM became a little bit better with her English accent or I got used to it. But please Ms Monroe, if you ever have another English character, study the accent formally. It's quite difficult for those who know the accent well. Otherwise I enjoy the authors storytelling.
Great sequal. Characters seem to come alive when read by the author. Another wonderful story written with southern charm.
Whew it was quite a job of work but finally got 'em all married. That was the whole purpose of the book. Glad that's done. Sorry for the spoiler but I am just really disappointed.
This was the 4th book in this series And if it is the last it would be wonderful. I am hoping for my low country stories but this I felt was the best so far!
I love these low country novels being im a east coast southern girl however, this would have been an even better listen if it had a narrator instead of being read by the Author.
