Daughters of the Bride by Susan Mallery follows three sisters in the months before their mothers wedding. Rachel is the eldest who has trouble relying on others or asking for help, a character flaw which helped lead to the failure of her marriage. Sienna is the middle child who has had two broken engagements and is more focused on her work than love. Courtney is the baby of the family and after dropping out of high school and running away is trying to get her life back in order without any help from her family. As these sisters, and their mother of course, get ready for the big day, they all must be brave and face what their decisions will do to everyone around them.This book was so wonderful, I really did not want it to end. The characters were so unique and well developed that I forgot I didn't actually know them. I was rooting for all of them and felt each victory as though it were my own. I loved how they each developed more and more as the story went on and how their interactions with each other shifted as time went on.This book was so well organized, having section dividers between each person's point of view. I never got confused as to who I was reading about at that time. They layout and plot was so well put together that I never got lost.This book became one of my favorite books. This is my first Susan Mallery book and it is definitely not my last. I am so excited to read her other books now. I just hope they are all as good as this one was.I recommend this book to anyone! Although it has more female attributes, I think even some men would appreciate this book.

Daughters of the Bride...
Im really glad to hav...
I'm really glad to have chosen this particular book as my first Susan Mallery read.In one word, this was a DELIGHT! I enjoyed it immensely, from the characters (and there are many!) through the dialogue and onward to humor, shedding a tear or two along the way.This heartwarming story can teach all of us about family ties and what they really mean. It also perfectly takes you through some very emotional situations that require forgiveness and unconditional love, without it being too "preachy".If you want to be entertained and taken on a rollercoaster of emotions, this is the book for you!Melanie for b2bComplimentary copy provided by the publisher
Although this is a boo...
Although this is a book encompassing all three sisters, only one of the sisters gets the fullest happily ever after (descriptive sex). The other two sisters get a varying degree of HEA. Yes they all get the guy, but their stories aren't as fully realized as Courtney's is. Their stories are as interesting, but not as gripping since Sienna and Rachel don't have the familial issues as Courtney does. Yes this is a book about secrets -and a second time bride who in my opinion, was a bridezilla. The secrets make this a frustrating read and the slow start to this book added to that frustration. I very nearly didn't give this book enough time to grab me -luckily I did.
Maggie has been a wido...
Maggie has been a widow and raised her three daughters by herself while she tried (at one time failed) to keep a roof over their heads. The girls are now grown, Maggie has a successful business and she is getting married again. Her daughters will be bridesmaids and help to plan the wedding, even though Maggie has some over the top requests for the wedding. Sp the book is about Maggie's wedding but it's also about so much more -- her daughters have all had extra pressure put on them over the years and the way they view life plus their relationships with each other show the results of their younger lives. Sienna is the oldest daughter. She works at a non profit to help women who are abused. She is in a relationship with David but isn't sure that he's the 'one'. Rachel is divorced from her fireman husband but are there still feelings between them or are they just working together to raise their son? Courtney (who was my favorite of the sisters) is working as a maid at a hotel. Her family is all a little embarrassed because of her job but she is hiding a secret from them that she is almost finished with her college degree. Will she find love within her family and learn to love herself? This was a light, fun read and I really enjoyed it.
I always enjoy Susan M...
I always enjoy Susan Mallery's books, and this was no exception. The characters were real and vulnerable which make them more relevant to today's world. The mother is a widow who finds love again and wants the same thing for her three daughters, but the girls want just to get thru their mother's wedding.
