Recently jilted Kate finds herself planning her best friend’s wedding. This is all fine and dandy, in theory, but after watching her ex-fiance run off with her sister, she would rather hide under the covers with her dog and a book than look at centrepieces and attend fittings. With the wedding one week away, Kate is busy. But just because she is busy doesn’t mean she can’t hang out with the groom’s brother a little bit. Right?
When I stumbled across One Week to the Wedding by Olivia Miles, I knew I had to read it. As you know, I have been trying to incorporate some titles to get me excited for my upcoming nuptials and I have been trying to consume any summer beach read possible, so this one was a no-brainer for me!
Fun and endearing, I found myself completely wrapped up in the week leading up to the wedding and all the drama that surrounded it. Mostly narrated through Kate, our protagonist, as she tries to navigate the world of wedding planning while trying to mend her own broken heart. We also get a perspective from her sister, Charlotte, who is trying desperately to make amends and, finally, from Alec, the groom’s brother who is a serious business man with a serious soft spot.
Plenty of twists and several turns had me interested in the story but the characters and the feel-good story kept me continuously reading. This one reminded me of those Nantucket novels that I love to get lost in during the summer; think Elin Hilderbrand and Kristan Higgins.
The first novel in the new Misty Point series and I know I will be anxiously awaiting the second book! This novel comes out tomorrow so if you are looking for an indulgent summer beach read, add this to your TBR piles!
Thanks to the publisher, the author and Netgalley for a digital copy of this novel; it was my pleasure to provide an honest review.
