About Beach Wedding Weekend:

You’re invited to a sunny beach town for a witty, heartwarming romance.

When Brody broke up with Paige and went to Europe, he suggested that someday, they’d pick up right where they left off. A hopeless romantic, she believed him.

But when they meet again, Brody’s dating a gorgeous actress.

They’re all going to attend the same wedding, and Paige plans to win Brody back. She even enlists her best friend’s brother, Aiden, to pretend to date her and make her ex jealous. A breezy, charming restaurant owner, Aiden actually avoids serious relationships, but as a fake boyfriend, he’s perfect.

As old friends and exes take part in wedding preparations and enjoy the beauty of the Florida coast, they begin to see themselves—and each other—in a new light.

This summer romance includes a free Hallmark original recipe for BBQ Brisket Tacos with Sunshine Slaw.

I’m at the beach as I write this. It’s only fitting that my first beach read would be about a beach wedding and romance.

Rachel Magee’s Beach Wedding Weekend scores with me. It’s a sweet, enjoyable romance between Paige and Aiden. Paige thought she was in love with Brody who broke off their romance when he left for his work in Europe. When he returns and Paige loses her ability to speak in his presence, Aiden volunteers to help make Brody jealous so Paige can win Brody back in exchange for Paige’s help in sealing a business deal. What neither anticipates is that they might fall in love or recognize that they might already be there in the meantime.

I can testify first hand that this is a wonderful beach read. Here I am at the beach and devoured this book. I love the fun romance between Paige and Aiden who realize, albeit slowly, that maybe they’ve been experiencing love for a long time. I also love that Paige realizes that she’s have one of the best days of her life when she and Aiden are in a boat on the Gulf surrounded by dolphins and that nothing she had experienced with Brody could even come close.

As a nature lover, I appreciated Magee’s awareness of the surrounding environs and her description.

This is a Hallmark romance and I noted that B&N has it listed as a Christian romance, which I typically avoid. This has no religious overtones, but it is a clean romance. It is sweet and just an excellent read without  overly dramatic angst.

If you’re headed on vacation and want something sweet and romantic, I can happily recommend Beach Wedding Weekend.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

About Rachel Magee:

Rachel wrote her first novel when she was twelve and entered it into a contest for young author/illustrators. Unfortunately, the judges weren’t impressed with her stick figures, so she dropped the dream of becoming a world-famous illustrator and stuck to spinning stories. When she’s not busy working on her latest book, she loves to travel with her family and friends. By far, her favorite destination is the beach, which tends to work its way into most of her stories. Between vacations, you can find her at home in The Woodlands, TX with her wonderful husband, their two adventurous kids and a couple of spirited pets.
