Publisher's Summary

Libby St. Clair believes in fate - so much so, she's willing to pin everything on a curse a fortune-teller placed on her and her two best friends when they were kids. The curse, that each of them will marry before 30, have a disaster of a wedding, and end up with a man other than her original fiancé, has come to fruition for both of her friends, who are now deliriously happy. But Libby's attempt to quick-start the curse by proposing to her wrong-for-her boyfriend ends in a wild dash from the altar.

Having spent most of his adulthood fleeing responsibility and commitment, Noah McMillan is finally ready to grow up. Of course, figuring out how is still a work in progress. When he realizes that he's in love with his friend, Libby, he flies to Kansas City to put a stop to her wedding. But Libby's already pulled a runaway bride. Eager to cheer her up and prove that he can be the man she deserves, he takes her on a madcap car trip that will bring them all the way to the City of Sin. In Vegas, those who risk it all either win big or lose everything, so what will happen if Libby and Noah take a gamble on love?

Absolutely loved The Wedding Pact series!!!

Another 5 star read in the Wedding Pact series! You will fall in love with Noah and Libby and there's visits from all our favorite characters from the previous 2 books in the series! Noah and Libby have their own roller coaster of a ride but I loved it and loved getting to know more about these two!

Better than first 2

Third in series.

I liked this book better than the first two in the series. The premise is runaway bride, but the story is two broken souls finding each other.

Wow - these two main characters - do they ever have self esteem issues. Eesh. Painful to hear but it rings true much more than the 1st two books.

And the women from the first two books (who Libby helped so much) were horrendous to her. Yikes.

I like having the epilogue - many books in this genre end the book one sentence after the couple stops fighting.

Sexy times are hot. Very brief though. One erotic scene?

Narrator is okay.

Great ending to the series

You'll fall in love with Noah and Libby. These two were meant to be and from the previous books in the series you kind of know they end up together but listening to their story was better than just knowing it would happen between them. Once again Gran is in the story and still hilarious along with grandma Rose from the second book. This book takes them from Kansas to Las Vegas and then home to Seattle. This series was also my first time listening to Shannon McManus, she did a great job with her narration.

Fun and funny

I like this narrator. This story was a nice conclusion to the trilogy. If it were a TV movie I could see me watching it over and over again along with the 2 stories that preceded it.

Not one of her best

I don't like to write bad reviews but I know I would like to be informed if I were thinking about purchasing this book and looking at the reviews. This is the third book in this series. I liked the h/h characters growth but unfortunately this story was too drawn out. Also there was too much miscommunication. The sub character of Gram was absurd and overdone. It seems like there is a trend with some authors since the Stephanie Plum series, to make the grandmother figures be obnoxious. It gets to the point of being sleazy and overdone. In short, I would not recommend this book.

Great story!

This trilogy would also make a great movie series. I love the characters and the way they interact. Gram and Nana were awesome. One more story, please! What happened to Kevin? More for Gram and Nana. Thanks for a fabulous story.

Wonderful Love Story

In this story, it continues what we first saw in the first two books, Noah & Libby's relationship, which was turning into love. They both knew that they were in love, but wasn't so sure about it. I love how the story was married, and I'm just so happy that Libby, Megan, & Blaire (the three best friends) finally found the man of their dreams!
