Stormi's Review: In the Event the Flower Girl Explodes by Abby Rosmarin
KINDLE UNLIMITED PUBLISHER: Huntress Press RELEASED: February 13, 2018 GENRE: CONTEMPORARY WOMEN'S FICTION LENGTH: 287 pages FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK
It’s the wedding of the century. Her big brother – the man who was a second father to her after their dad passed – is the groom. And Nicole is fighting just to keep her head above water.
She’s surrounded by an aloof bride-to-be, a psychotic mother of the bride, ridiculous bridesmaids, and a town that feels like a parody of Americana. Her own family is perfectly fine with everything – with the exception of her wise-cracking cousin Ella, whose antics only serve to get Nicole even further into trouble. The wedding stress is invading all aspects of her life, including her own relationship. Nicole only wants what’s best for her brother – but what if that involves her brother leaving his fiancée at the altar?
As the wedding day approaches and tensions continue to rise, Nicole is forced to figure out what love, loyalty, and honesty mean – before it’s too late and she loses everyone she loves. TWO BOUNDLESS STARS
Nicole is a supportive sister (at least she's trying to be). Her brother, the man that raised her after her father passed, is getting married. A big wedding is to come, and Nicole is dealing with a crazy bride and all that comes along with a wedding. She must find a way to figure things out before she loses all that is important to her. This book was a quick and easy read. It was humorous in the dislike that Nicole obviously has for Cora, her brother's fiancee and the rest of the wedding in general. Honestly, so much of this book was about being "southern," and I found it quite funny. I'm from the South so I can see the humor in some of it. Honestly, the characters were a bit whiney. A lot of this story was just making fun of Cora and her wedding choices. It was funny at first, but after a while, it got a bit repetitive and annoying. Overall, the story was written well, but it just wasn't what I was expecting, and so it was hard for me to get into.
