A Wedding on Primrose Street Book Review

I was excited to get the next book in the series on my reserve shelf at the library.  A Wedding on Primrose Street (Life in Icicle Falls) by Sheila Roberts was the next in the Icicle Falls series.  It's title promise a wedding so I was excited to find out what is going on and who was getting married.  I can't wait to find out what is going on in this next installment of the series.

There's nothing like a wedding! 

The joy, the fun, the memories—the stress. As a wedding planner, Anne Richardson has seen mothers of the bride turn into Momzillas, and she's determined not to do that when it's her daughter's turn to get married. But once Laney gets engaged, all bets are off. Anne becomes obsessed with giving Laney the perfect wedding she herself never had. And that wedding needs to be held in Icicle Falls at Primrose Haus, the perfect setting.

Roberta Gilbert, owner of Primrose Haus, has been hosting events at her charming Victorian for thirty years. She's an expert on weddings, but not on mother-daughter relations. When her daughter, Daphne, comes home and decides to help with the business, the receptions become truly memorable—and not in a good way. Then there's the added complication of Roberta's gardener, who seems more interested in Daphne than he is in planting primroses… Tying the knot is a business that has everyone tied up in knots!

I was so happy to get to read this book which is currently the last book in the series that is out.  I have read through this series pretty quickly but the good news is that there is another book that is going to be released next month.  This book was all about planning weddings and hosting weddings from the point of view of the wedding planner and the person that hosts the Victorian house on Primrose Street.  It was very interesting to hear the stories that both of them go through to get the brides the best wedding that they can imagine.  If I had it to do over again, I would go with a smaller wedding with less stress.  I know that everyone attending the wedding had a blast but I was sick and exhausted.  I know that it is hard when you are in the middle of the situation to see forward to the future but this book as a little on both sides of getting the "perfect" day.  Funny thing is that even without that perfect day, you still have the wedding to last the rest of your life.  In a few short weeks, it will be my 11th wedding anniversary with my wonderful husband.  I think that the highlight for both of us was the cake (pumpkin and lemon poppy seed) and when everything was over!!  We normally don't do anything big on our anniversary but sit back and relax to be thankful that we never have through that again even though we enjoyed spending time with our family and friends!!!  I hope that you check out this book and others in the Icicle Falls series at your local library or bookstore soon.  Add the complete series to your wish list and enjoy!!
