This is the final chapter of Molly Harper and Cruz Morales' story. While this can be a standalone, I would recommend reading the first two parts(Duets and Molly Harper) first, as the background and story is wonderful. After listening to Molly Harper(which includes it's prequel, Duets), I could not wait to start this book. I could not get enough of the story. This book begins with Molly and Cruz finally back together and happy. Molly is a strong female character, which I love. She is independent and likes to make her own decisions. That does not mean she doesn't like to consult and talk to her partner. Cruz(I love him) who has loved Molly pretty much all of his life has difficulty not being overprotective of her. Being an actress, this creates many problems. Between scheduling and paparazzi, there are many obstacles the two must overcome. Throw in a family Molly wasn't aware of she had after meeting her birth mother, and this story from start to finish was nothing but enjoyable. Emelle Gamble was a new author to me, but I will definitely be listening to more of her books.
Caroline Price, the narrator of this book did an awesome job. From start to finish, she was able to give each character their own personality with just the right amounts of emotion. Love her ability to do accents as well. Great story!

December Wedding brings the conclusion of Molly Harper and Cruz Morales. From the book Duet, Cruz was Molly's love of her life. Cruz has never been able to accept Molly's choice of career in acting. Now, Molly and Cruz are having a baby. They faced a news reporter with scruples of obtaining the most exclusive news regarding Molly and Cruz.
Molly tried to protect her biological family and Cruz from the media. The manipulation of the news reporter does set Molly and Cruz's relationship a step back. But in the ends, Molly and Cruz get the upperhands.
Cruz has finally accepted Molly for who she is but he hasn't adopted that his life will be a media circus. There are moment where Cruz become the person that the readers/listeners could really love. Cruz does faltered when dealing with the media.
Even though Molly and Cruz reached a good understanding of both their needs, they still have to communicate. Molly does keep a few secrets from Cruz of what is going down. When Cruz responded to the media, it almost ruined their and their family's privacy.
However, with a few set-backs, readers/listeners will love the ending of Molly and Cruz's story.
The narrator Caroline Price deliver a wonderful performance, never breaking from the characters' personalities. Cruz is still a hot-head but he does have some restraints in this story. He seemed to finally able to love Molly for who and what she does for a living. The narrator really made Cruz matured in this story.

I received a free copy of the audiobook for an honest review.
I had listened to Molly Harper which is women’s fiction and is full of drama and heartache. I was happy to listen to December Wedding about Molly and Cruz to see what was in store for them.
It was nice to read about Molly and Cruz living as close to normal as possible. There was still some drama but it had a lot of smiles and a good ending.
Emelle Gamble’s writing is easy to follow and flows well. I had the audiobook and the narrator, Caroline Price, did a good job. I was able to distinguish all of the different characters.
If you like women’s fiction, I definitely recommend December Wedding but keep a box of Kleenex handy.
SPOILER ALERT ******** SPOILER ALERT ******** SPOILER ALERT ********
This review discusses the final book in a series. As much as I try not to, it may contain spoilers.
In this wrap up of the series including, Molly Harper & Duets.
In December Wedding, Molly refuses Cruz's marriage proposals., Yes, proposals with and S!
The shenanigans of paparazzi continue to plague Molly, Cruz and the rest of the cast of characters.
This is great ending beautiful. It tied up most of the loose endings from Harper's birth mother, to her half brother, the romance and love and, of course, Molly's insistence and feeling of protection for all of those involved.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. *I had the opportunity to listen to the entire series in exchange for my review. This installment was a lot of fun to listen to.
There are a few nuggets in which the author could continue the series but I hope that she resists and either start a new series or put this project to bed.
The narration was spot on in every instance. If it was a funny situation, a serious situation – as is the case throughout the series – a crazy, whirlwind of confusion, the narrator guided us through. The performance sounded a fairly effortless and it was enjoyable.
Notes: Portions of adult humor & I would have categorized the series as chick, as well as contemporary romance
PG-13 for this rating
