The Christmas Wedding Guest by Susan Mallery
Release Date - September 28, 2021
Enjoy a two-for-one romance novel that's set during the holidays, but it's really a fantastic read for any moment that you need something positive and uplifting. The Christmas Wedding Guest is about sisters, one local and one who moved away. They're spending the holidays helping their parents get ready for their wedding.
Reggie hasn't been back in a year. She left town with no plans to return after her fiance dumped her the same weekend he proposed. Dena's given up finding Mr. Right and decides to have a baby on her own. Both sisters are in for surprises. Reggie's former high school love is also back in town and can't deny the attraction between them is still strong. Dena has a celebrity guest at her inn, and it's hard to ignore their attraction.
While they're supposed to be focused on their parents' vow renewals, romance is in the air. The holidays could lead to more joy than anyone had planned.
I loved this story. There's not a lot of conflict. It's just fun, happy, and exactly what I needed. I'd been struggling to read since my mom's death a few weeks ago. While it was a long time coming, Alzheimer's took a lot from her and from the rest of us, too. I thank Susan Mallery for making me laugh, smile, and feel warm and cozy by the end of the story.
