Natalie’s Getting Married Book Review
I was excited when Rosa Temple asked me to review her book that is coming out in March 2016. A few months ago, I reviewed another one of her books, Sleeping with Your Best Friend. You can see that review here. I enjoyed this book even more!
I was given Natalie’s Getting Married in exchange for an honest review. As you can see from the blurb above, Natalie enters college and falls madly in love with Jackson. Her best friend, Gabriel, thinks she is rushing into marriage. It’s difficult to give much more of a summary of the book without spoiling some of the surprises.
I really enjoyed this book. Natalie found herself along her way to try to find true love. Although she wasn’t in love with anyone before college, she tended to fall pretty hard into love. Even though she wasn’t always logical, she was a likeable character. I liked seeing Natalie’s growth in this novel. We get to see her change through a number of years. Although this is a love story, it’s much more about Natalie as a person than just a romance.
I loved where Natalie goes to buy a wedding dress, at Margie McGee’s Wedding Dress Emporium. This store and its owner end up becoming recurring characters in Natalie’s story. I loved the quirk of it. I also liked the secondary characters of Alyssa, Gabriel, and Bella. Alyssa was Natalie’s very-wise-for-her-young-age assistant. She ended up going on some adventures with Natalie and I loved her wisdom and sense of humor. Gabriel was Natalie’s best friend from college. They had such a sweet friendship and it was interesting to see it change through the years. We also get to read Natalie’s best friend’s love story in this novel. Her best friend, Bella, is wild, crazy, and never wants to settle down. There is a very sweet ending to her story.
The only thing I would have changed is had the ending to the book be longer. It felt a little rushed to me. Nevertheless, I give the book 4 out of 5 stars! It was a fun, quick read!
