Publisher's Summary

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".

Impossible to concentrate

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.

Sacrificing the story for social commentary

Is there anything you would change about this book?

She is a great story teller and I loved the first 3 books in this series. But with each book the story starts slipping to fit in social commentary (or an agenda). I stopped listening to this book because the story was lagging and the social commentary started taking over the story.<br/>

What do you think your next listen will be?

I won't be listening to the rest of this series. not sure yet

What three words best describe Mary Alice Monroe’s performance?

performance in writing or reading??? writing for this book slipped. the new characters sounded a bit like the other male characters.

Could you see A Lowcountry Wedding being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

no

Any additional comments?

I loved the first three books. Please drop the social commentary and get back to the story.

extremely poor performance

Listening to this performance was painful. Ms. Monroe struggled to remember whether the pronunciation of her main character's name was MaMa or Momma. Ms. Monroe also struggled with her fluency and her diction. Her presentation reminded me of someone not familiar with reading aloud. In the future, Ms. Monroe would do well to stick to writing and leave the performance to someone more skilled. Atticus Green, a Southern Baptist minister, should have never used profanity. But he did. Southern Baptists are never referred to as parishioners. But in this book they were. Those were just a few of the irritants for me.

TOURTURE!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one.

What was most disappointing about Mary Alice Monroe’s story?

Boring and predictable

Would you be willing to try another one of Mary Alice Monroe’s performances?

No, the performance was the worst part.

Any additional comments?

I have been listening to Audible for many years, this was the worst book I have ever listened to.

Maybe it is time to end this series

This was a let down after all the others was great. Maybe the series is dragging on to long.

Best in the Series

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.

Enjoyed the story from the beginning to the end.

Great sequal. Characters seem to come alive when read by the author. Another wonderful story written with southern charm.
