Caroline Abbott knows her way around bridezillas.
Working at a stationery store means helping engaged couples pick out the perfect save-the-date
cards and invitations for their dream weddings—a dream job.
Until the bridezilla of the day belongs to her first kiss, Alexander Wilder. He’s all grown up now, running his family’s luxury hotel chain, and even hotter than she remembers from that scorcher of a smooch.
So when Caroline catches his fiancée half-naked with another man, she has to tell him. And Alex has to break it off. And of course, the ex-bridezilla goes completely bonkers.
Good thing Caroline has plenty of experience—and friends to help save her.
She also has the sudden interest of Alex, who has a proposal of his own for her. Is it just a rebound for him, or does he also feel the same spark that drew them together all those years ago?
Great weekend read!
Save The Date was a super quick and engaging read/ listen. This was my first read by Monica Murphy and I’m excited to continue with this fun and flirty series. I listened to the audiobook and enjoyed the narration very much.
Here’s what I loved:
The storyline is a little twist on the brother’s friends and fake fiancé trope, which I enjoy.
The writing is witty and charming. I really enjoyed Caroline’s character. She’s fun and flirty. It was nice to see her interaction with Alex as the story opened.
Caroline’s friends were all fun and engaging. I’m looking forward to reading more books in the series to see how those relationships progress.
It’s super light, not a lot of drama or angst. Just a fun read.
Narrated by Ava Lucas and Jack DuPont, this dual POV narration really hit the spot. I enjoyed both narrators.
If you’re looking for a sweet slow burn romance that’s super cute, definitely give this one a try!
