Publisher's Summary

Always the wedding planner, never a bride, Elliot Lynch is famous for orchestrating the splashiest weddings in Charleston, South Carolina. When her father's sloppy management practices leave them on the brink of bankruptcy, Elliot will do whatever it takes to save the family business. When asked to appear on 'The Marrying Type', a reality TV show about the people behind the scenes as couples exchange I dos, she says yes to the invasion of privacy (and the hefty paycheck that comes with it).

With a camera crew capturing every detail of her life, Elliot faces her most challenging contract yet: planning a wedding where her ex is involved in every part of the process. Add in a lazy assistant, liquor-loving bridesmaid, and rival planner encroaching on her turf, and Elliot's wedding season goes from high-end to high-stress.

Forced to confront her past, Elliot must live out her troubled present on national TV if she has any hope of saving her future.

Enjoyable, Fun Story

This is the perfect light fun enjoyable listen when you need a good diversion. The characters are believable and the story is engaging, witty, and romantic. The story weaves nicely around family conflicts and disagreements while allowing the romance to shine through. Truly, a sweet romantic listen. 😊

The narrator has a very pleasant voice and she did a nice job with this book. 😸

This is a great book written by Laura Chapman and narrated by Emily Lawrence. Always the wedding planner, never a bride, Elliot Lynch is famous for orchestrating the splashiest weddings in Charleston, South Carolina. When her father's sloppy management practices leave them on the brink of bankruptcy, Elliot will do whatever it takes to save the family business. When asked to appear on 'The Marrying Type', a reality TV show about the people behind the scenes as couples exchange I dos, she says yes to the invasion of privacy. With a camera crew capturing every detail of her life, Elliot faces her most challenging contract yet: planning a wedding where her ex is involved in every part of the process. Add in a lazy assistant, liquor-loving bridesmaid, and rival planner encroaching on her turf, and Elliot's wedding season goes from high-end to high-stress.<br/><br/>The narrator Emily Lawrence did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end. <br/><br/>If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator. <br/><br/>This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Boom.<br/>

A second chance romance

Would you listen to The Marrying Type again? Why?

Yes! This has quickly become a favorite in the second chance romance category of my books.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Elliot. I loved her determination but also how relatable she is in so many ways.

Which scene was your favorite?

I laughed at the bachelorette party... hello officer. But I really liked the slow bloom of a romance rekindled between Elliot and Eric.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Rematched romance.

Any additional comments?

This story was slightly different than I expected. While there were some conflicts, some unappealing characters and so drama rich moments, they were never over the top or too angsty. The rekindled romance had a slow burn but remains PG, and I felt could do for a little more steam, but is a sweet contemporary romance over all. I received this audiobook for free from audiobook boom for my unbiased review.

The Marrying Type

The Marrying Type
: Laura Chapman

A very sweet romance with brides, grooms, bridesmaid from "you know where," a wedding planner and many twists turns ups and downs and best of all love............oh not to mention a camera crew filming it all.


The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Emily Lawrence does the perfect southern belle.

Always the wedding planner, never a bride

Would you try another book from Laura Chapman and/or Emily Lawrence?

Yes.<br/><br/>The Marrying Type is a sweet romance book to pass the time with.<br/><br/>I enjoyed the concept of a reality show following couples on their journey to a life together. <br/><br/>The second chance love story was also nicely written.<br/>

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

More steamy scenes!

Which character – as performed by Emily Lawrence – was your favorite?

Elliot!<br/><br/>Emily is a great narrator and each character stood out, but Elliot was a strong woman who did the right thing in returning home to run the family business.<br/>She gave up on love and put her own desires on hold for her family.<br/>I admired her for it.<br/><br/>I liked Elliot's portrayal as a competent woman who supported Eric in his efforts to make it big in business. She was the driving force behind him!<br/>
