REVIEW: 3.5 STARS
I was sent this book to review. My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review.
Have you ever picked up a book and decided you were just not in the mood for it? It is me, not you kind of thing! That is what happened with The Wedding Crasher. At first I thought I was not going to be able to get into this, but I put it down for a week and when I finally picked it back up I am glad I did.
I really enjoyed this one. I will say I am not a huge fan of detective work in stories unless it is done right. This was done pretty well and I found myself interested in everything going on and wanting to know how everything was going to unfold. It was not repetitive like some stories that involve police/investigations.
Like some others mentioned, I also really appreciated the pacing of this story. I had no issue wanting to reach for it once I finally got into the story. I liked the story and the characters.
Overall, I really enjoyed this and the writing. I would love to check out more from the author in the future.
