Daughters of the Bride is a delightful tale about love, courage, forgiveness, and redemption.
Maggie Watson, a mother of three grown children, was getting married again for the second time after twenty-four years of being a single parent. Rachel, Sienna, and Courtney were thrilled for their mother’s happiness. Their father had died when they were very young, so having a step-father, was something that they welcomed. Since Maggie’s first husband didn’t plan well for their future, they were almost penniless, when he died. But for Joyce, a kind-hearted hotel owner, Maggie and her children would have been homeless. Maggie never wanted to be destitute or dependent on anyone again; so she made her priority, making money, instead of raising children. Something she would later regret, especially with her daughter, Courtney.
Once Maggie had established her career, she did her best to develop a relationship with her daughters; but by then, her girls were young adults with their own concerns. Rachel was still in love with her ex-husband, but too afraid to trust him again. Sienna, was engaged for the third time and obviously unhappy, but unable to talk about it. And Courtney, Maggie’s problem child, was hiding secrets from everyone and was about to throw the love of her life away.
Daughters of the Bride is an easy to read, uplifting story about forgiveness, second chances and letting go of fear. I enjoyed reading this entertaining book, and although, I did find some areas to be too detailed and wordy, the book was so engrossing, that it didn’t matter. If you enjoy light fun romances, you’ll love Daughters of the Bride.
I received this ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
