a book in review & giveaway

 Brief 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. 

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Charleston, SC is one of my favorite places in the world. When my family heads to our usual vacation spot each Summer we always spend one day in Charleston, which isn't enough. It's gorgeous and there's so much to see, I could go on about Charleston for hours, but the reason why I'm setting the scene is because when I saw that The Marrying Type took place in this gorgeous city, I knew I had to read it. As a lover of weddings and reality TV, this book gave a nice behind the scenes look into both. Elliot is a great lead character and she has her fair share of ups and downs. This well written story is a page turner that will keep you wonder what's going to happen next. I recommend this 5 star book to anyone who loves Weddings as much as I do, this is the perfect sit outside on a sunny afternoon and get lost in beautiful Charleston, xo!
