You are cordially invited to read Laura Chapman’s new novel, The Marrying Type!
Always the wedding planner, never a bride, Elliot Lynch is famous for orchestrating the splashiest weddings in Charleston, South Carolina. When her father’s sloppy management practices leave them on the brink of bankruptcy, Elliot will do whatever it takes to save the family business. When asked to appear on “The Marrying Type,” a reality TV show about the people behind the scenes as couples exchange I dos, she says yes to the invasion of privacy (and the hefty paycheck that comes with it).
With a camera crew capturing every detail of her life, Elliot faces her most challenging contract yet: planning a wedding where her ex is involved in every part of the process. Add in a lazy assistant, liquor-loving bridesmaid, and rival planner encroaching on her turf, and Elliot’s wedding season goes from high-end to high-stress.
Forced to confront her past, Elliot must live out her troubled present on national TV if she has any hope of saving her future.
My Book Review:
The Marrying Type is an entertaining romantic comedy that follows the trials and tribulations of wedding planner Elliot Lynch.
Author Laura Chapman weaves a sassy tale full of humor and drama that easily draws the reader into Elliot's life as she tries to save her family's wedding business by signing up to appear on The Marrying Type, a wedding reality show. Set in Charleston, SC, Elliot's life is anything but normal: always the wedding planner, never a bride, Elliot's life plays out in front of the nation, and if that's not enough to make a girl go nuts, how about working with her ex-fiance on a wedding, and dealing with crazy brides, bridesmaids, and a rival wedding planner too!
The Marrying Type is a fun, lighthearted, and fast paced story that easily keeps the reader turning the pages to see what would happen next. Author Laura Chapman sure knows how to weave an enjoyable tale that keeps her readers in stitches, you can't help but get caught up in Elliot's roller coaster ride of a life full of crazy wedding dramas and sweet romance, it's simply delightful!
RATING: 5 STARS
