Since it was such a silly book it wasn't written as well as it could have been. I tended to lose track of who was who occassionally. I don't know if that's because the author could have done a better job or if the book actually bored me?
Each chapter follows the storyline of a different character: Stella, Erin, and Casey. Toward the end I kept thinking ...more

This was a wish list book . I read about it on amazon and thought I might like it.
This is the first book I've read from this author.
At first I liked the beginning but then I started to get annoyed how the women were treated and worried that this would go on for many more pages, but I am glad to say... no.
The women wised up and I enjoyed this read.
Very quick summer read.

Stella, Erin and Casey all get married on Labor Day weekend by the same reverend who later dies before signing or filing their marriage certificates so after all the fuss of a big wedding in front of family and friends they find they aren't really married. Which isn't actually a bad thing because their dream marriages aren't exactly what they'd thought they'd be.
Stella "married" a man twice her age who refers to he ...more
Bottom line, Nearlyweds is a cute novel about every newlywed woman's worst nightmare. LOL. It was actually quite humorous and I found myself laughing quite a bit. The characters are fun and their situations are not all that unique, but the way that they handle the situation they are put in is somewhat unique. It was a fun book and well worth the read.
The story takes place in Alden, MA and follows the three storylines of Stella, Casey & Erin. The characters are great, easy to root for and get to know. Renee is the ultimate queen bee diva enemy and Cash is a great surprise hero. ;) I wouldn't mind a sequel of this book in a "Where Are They ...more
It's a SUPER easy read. Which is exactly what I needed. I wanted something I could laugh through, feel sad with the characters (but never to sad) and then leave with a nice happy ending. This book delivered that. There were emotional ups and downs with the characters but nothing ever earth shattering and I like that. I am sure so ...more

Only problem from the writing wise with the chapter divided into the main three bride individually made me feel like jumping from one person mind to another in a sec and it does made me have to switch gear every now and then which for me messy but still readable (maybe because i'm not famil ...more
