Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of The Red Hat Club fearlessly takes on mothers and daughters, wedding madness, and midlife passion in this frank, funny, and fabulous new novel.

Georgia, Linda, Diane, Teeny, and Pru have been best friends since high school, and never have they needed one another more. Georgia's precious 28-year-old daughter, Callie, has gone and gotten engaged. Usually this would be cause for celebration. After all, this is the South, where dreams of white dresses and wedding bells are as important as finding the perfect hat. But Callie's intended groom just happens to be a man they went to high-school and college with: Wild Man Wade!

These women know more about the groom than the bride does. His drunken shenanigans. His wild oats. And all of his conquests as well as his mistakes. They can imagine him in the most inappropriate of circumstances, but not as a son-in-law!

With absolutely hilarious Southern observances and dead-on wit about mothers, daughters, marriage, and families, Wedding Belles will have you laughing and crying whether you live above or below the Mason-Dixon line.

    "Charming, witty and fun!"

    I laughed and I cried and thoroughly enjoyed this engaging, picturesque story of a mother's concern for her daughter and her upcoming wedding. The sequence of events chronicles the sisterhood, love, and support of life-long friends along with Southern Americana and prenuptial traditions and customs. The author skillfully intertwines past experiences with present situations and perspective. The narrator was the perfect choice to dramatize the story. I loved it!

    "Very funny book"

    I listen to audiobooks as I walk. Makes exercise a little more tolerable. I caught myself looking around to see if anyone was looking when I was laughing out loud. These women know that they can get into some stuff. Since the narrator is one of my favorites, it made the book that much more enjoyable.

    "Enjoyable Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, It was an enjoyable continuation of the Red Hat Club books.


    Which character – as performed by Cynthia Darlow – was your favorite?

    Georgia was my favorite character in this one. She reminded me of how my mother use to cling to positive sayings and proverbs to get us through rough times.


    Any additional comments?

    Cynthia Darlow does a wonderful job of narrating these Red Hat books. It's hard to believe it is only one person reading each of these characters. She was also wonderful in Ladies of the Lake, which I actually liked a little better than Wedding Bells.

    "Lots of fun and laugh out loud moments"

    I really enjoyed this book. Being in my 50's with an adult daughter I could really relate.
