The tree is decorated, the cookies are baked, and the packages are wrapped, but the biggest celebration this Christmas is Gaby Summerhill's wedding. Since her husband died three years ago, Gaby's four children have drifted apart, each consumed by the turbulence of their own lives. They haven't celebrated Christmas together since their father's death, but when Gaby announces that she's getting married - and that the groom will remain a secret until the wedding day - she may finally be able to bring them home for the holidays. But the wedding isn't Gaby's only surprise - she has one more gift for her children, and it could change all their lives forever.
With deeply affecting characters and the emotional twists of a James Patterson thriller, The Christmas Wedding is a fresh look at family and the magic of the season.

The story could have been fuller. It was very brief.
The story could have been longer. It was very short.
The book was read very painfully. I wouldn't have chosen any of them.
This was more a waste of time then anything. The storyline was just weird. I felt like I was listening to family drama. Won't be listening to this again!
nsulli "God Bless"
I loved that the mother was the one getting married and not telling her children who the groom was,she kept the reader guessing as well,funny, thought provoking, and pretty much finding a way to help her children as well as herself.
All of the characters were so involved in the story line couldn't pick just one.
the characters were all done so well,no one sounded like the others,very distinctive voices for each one,I loved that!
Absolutely,couldn't wait to get back to it.
Just an all around good listening book!
It is right up there. I like many types of books. This one is a great to just sit back and enjoy with a cup of tea.
When she finally decided who the groom was going to be.
They all were my favorite. The book would not have been as good if even one character was left out
none. Again I feel that the story needed all characters.
Don't let the cover art fool you. The story is a love story about family and the dynamics of being a family. Each of the family members is different and has their own story.
Can't think of one.
It was a treat having different narrators, instead of having a narrator trying to imitate a different gender. The voices make the characters more real.
My husband and listen when driving over-the-road when he's trucking. It's always hard to get to the end of the day and not being able to stop reading when you want to.
You think the book is going to be light hearted until you start recognizing the message about being a family that is being intertwinded into the story.
I enjoyed it. This was the first Audiobook I have purchased and The narrators kept me so interested that I had to listen to the all the way to the end.
Was when she decided to leave her job when she got a bonus.
I was glad there was more then one narrator, this give you a better view that the write intended.
I had to force myself to finish this listen. The plot was suppose to be entertaining I suppose but the characters were a mess and made it hard to follow. I am not a prude however I wish authors would realize they could create wonderful books without all the vulgar language. It does nothing to establish the storyline.
Apparently there is a great James Patterson following but I will not be one of those.
Waste of my time and monies.
Could make myself care about characters
She used different intonations but everyone pretty much the same.
Don't waste your time on this one.
The story was very predictable so it was somewhat boring. Character development was okay and of course the characters did what you expected them to do.
Something with more suspense in it.
The narrators had more of a sing song voice, not what I enjoy
Yes, not to re listen to it again
Some may like it. I didn't feel it stood up to the description of the book.
Patterson YES. DiLallo NO. Narrators good.
Enjoyed the ride but disappointed overall. Fluff in the end.
