This Story Is Sweet

Publisher's Summary

The perfect feel-good summer romance for 2018 for fans of Debbie Macomber, Jenny Hale, and Debbie Johnson.

Tessa has always dreamed of her own business. And when a beautiful run-down house comes up for sale in the Southern town of Bellegrove, she knows it has perfect potential to be an amazing one-stop wedding shop.

Teaming up with wedding planner to the stars Stefan, cake-baker extraordinaire Ama, and dress designer Natalie, they’re ready for big things. They’ve even found their first client - a sweet old lady named Bianca, who’s desperate to give her grandson a spectacular wedding. (Even though he’s equally determined to keep it simple and romantic.)

But as the big day approaches, things start to go wrong. Handsome handyman Blake Ellingham breaks the news that the building needs re-wiring, and the bill for renovations is longer than a royal wedding train. And then Stefan suddenly quits....

Can Tessa pull off the dream wedding? Can Blake be convinced to help? And if the electrical is faulty, why are so many sparks flying between him and Tessa?

Nice story

First off, after listening to the audio, the narrator did a wonderful job. She really fit the characters and the tone of the story. Quality performance.

This is a nice, wholesome story. This just isn’t the type of story that draws me in. The romance aspect was very limited; there’s a few cute moments, but really this isn’t a romance. It’s more focused on building a new business and planning a wedding; there was too much filler going on in this story. The story moves slowly. After reading the premise, I was thinking that the wedding would take place at the cool house and there would be some humor. That there would be more of a romance between Tessa and Blake. That this would be Tessa’s story. Unfortunately, none of those things happened. The book blurb needs to be reworked. There are POV’s from 3 women, so there’s all this getting to know each woman and the issues each woman has; I would’ve preferred for the story to just be about Tessa. They are all nice ladies, but there wasn’t any excitement there. Alma is Indian and dealing with her family trying to arrange a love match for her, Natalie is Italian and her family wants her to settle down, and Tessa wants love, but is afraid to go after it. Overall, it’s a nice, simple story about planning a wedding. Maybe the story will develop in the next books in the series, but I don’t think I’m the audience for this series, so I think I’ll skip them. I went 3 stars because although the story didn’t engage me; it’s still a nice story and the writing is good. Clean, wholesome read.

Sweet and Fun

I really enjoyed this. It's exactly the kind of fun sweet read I needed. It's fluffy and light but made for a great summer read. I adored the characters and they kept me sucked into the story. Tessa, Natalie, and Ama start their new business and become the Wedding Belles, unfortunately their new building isn't up to code. Add in their contractor, some last minute plan changes, and an overbearing grandmother and we're given a fun entertaining story. I adored that there was no insta love, the romance was slow and subtle. It was a natural progression.

I was left wanting more from these characters, i'm hoping to revisit them again.
The narration by Amanda Stribling was great. She made it easy to distinguish between characters and was very pleasant to listen to.

Another great performance from Amanda

I found this book a little slow to begin with but it does warm up. It’s sweet and has some great characters. Written well and Amanda does a fantastic performance.
