"The Wedding Switch" [A Four Weddings and a Fiasco Novella] by Sharon Kleve
Author's Book Description : Abby Blackwell runs a successful wedding planning business. She’s delighted when Derrick, her boyfriend of only a few short months proposes. Abby immediately accepts and dreams of the perfect wedding at the Rose Chalet. But, when Derrick with no explanation, pressures her to get married as soon as possible, she has to wonder why and drags her feet.
Derrick Coltrane's future rests on portraying a settled, respectable and married man. All he needs is a wife—now—and Abby fits the bill. She’s successful, smart, gorgeous, and would make the perfect corporate wife. He just needs to convince her to tie-the-knot by the end of the month to close the most important deal of his career.
Hunter Price knows he’s made the biggest mistake of his life. Derrick, a friend from school, hires him to pretend he’s getting married, in an attempt to trick Abby into planning her own whirlwind wedding. Abby is selfless, sweet, tastes like sunshine, and belongs to someone else—and he just kissed her.
Two grooms-to-be—one bride-to-be and one bridesmaid. Which couple will walk down the aisle to happily ever after?
My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, a man proposes to his wedding planner “girlfriend” after a few short months of dating after being pressured to be in a committed relationship so he’ll receive his promotion. His fiancée isn’t sure getting married is what she wants to do, but since she doesn’t know that he only wants to marry her for his job reasons only, she is still slowly following through now that she’s accepted. Yet, slowly isn’t fast enough for him so he brings in a “friend” from high school to try to help out…and soon everything changes for all three of them.
Listed just as the title states, it is a slightly surprising wedding switch. I liked how it all turned out in the end. Yet, even though Derrick unintentionally gets both Abby and Hunter together, and I enjoyed reading about their sweet relationship growing, Derrick himself was a hard character to read.
About the Main Characters :
• Derrick: Rude. Arrogant. Handsome. Rich. A jerk. Engaged to Abby, wants to marry very soon.
• Abby: Beautiful. Sweet. Professional wedding planner. Wants to marry for love and only plans to marry once in her life unlike her parents. Engaged to Derrick. Attracted to Hunter.
• Hunter: Co-owns a detective agency. Attracted to Abby. Handsome. Is “helping” his “friend” Derrick.
• Alessandra: Abby’s Maid of Honor and best friend. A southern belle. Quite pretty. Has been married before.
I enjoyed the plot along with how Hunter goes about winning the girl he likes. It was all very sweet! I recommend this novel to those who are fans of the other Four Weddings and a Fiasco novellas and/or if you’re looking for a unique contemporary wedding romance!
