Review by Diane ♥ What Happens at a Wedding Anthology

A Review by Diane

What Happens at a Wedding: A Short Story Anthology

Four Eclectic and Very Different Stars!!

We all know weddings……happy times……a couple in love……families coming together……but do we really know anything about the people in attendance???  Who are they???  What brings them to this moment in time to celebrate someone else’s happiness??  Are they happy themselves??   Well, with a different twist to storytelling What Happens at a Wedding: A Short Story Anthology by a composite group of authors (nine to be exact)  is a collection of prequels and short stories about….you guessed it….people who attend those weddings.

Now, I must have missed the “A Short Story Anthology” in the title because this book is not what I expected nor something I would normally pick to read.  However, with that said, I found stories I really enjoyed and wanted more of (one in particular that was kind of a cliff hanger) and some that were okay, and some I just couldn’t get into, if you know what I mean, so it was easy to skip to the next story.  But I think that’s what you get when you have a mix and eclectic group of authors coming together in a book like this.  What is interesting is how a group of authors can all take the same subject matter (attendance at a wedding) and write their own story to it.  Very intriguing to say the least, and quite honestly, after reading this book, there are a couple of new authors I will be looking for some of their upcoming projects. 

Overall each story had their own level of romance, spicy banter between characters, and hot and steamy sex so that every reader will find what they like.  For me personally, it was Elle Christensen’s six chapter story that had me flipping through the book for more, going to my internet to see if she was writing this book in more depth…..what… can’t leave me hanging here!!!  What happened to Avery???? Does Jake find her????

See what I mean?  Read it and find yours!

  1. This is how you write a review! Fantastic Diane, I was able to see the positive in the book even though you didn't realize it was a group of different stories.
