BLOG TOUR for WEDDING GIRL by Stacey Ballis
Thank you to the publishers Berkley for sending me an electronic copy of this book and inviting me to join their book tour.
TITLE: WEDDING GIRL
AUTHOR: Stacey Ballis
GENRE: Contemporary fiction
This book was an interesting contrast of good/bad. The first half (ish) of the book is about losing something, someone as well as your dream or what you thought your dream would be. The second part is about picking yourself up and moving forward.
So, from this point of view this book is well written and I enjoyed reading about Sophie's "can do" attitude. Its actually fun to watch someone else's life become something completely different - kind of reflects reality.
On the other hand, this book was a little too "perfect" at times, which does NOT, in my opinion reflect reality. Having said that, however, the writing is crisp and the main character is a strong one, which is always a huge plus for me. I also love that she ends up with her grandmother, which is something dear and close to my heart.
I felt I had to suspend my disbelief a little bit, but otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Kind of gives us hope that better things than what we can imagine are coming our way.
