“Can’t Buy Me Love” is a fantastic prequel to Beth Vogt’s new Destination Wedding series. If the rest of the series is even half as good, I will be happy. Can’t wait to dive into “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” which is waiting it’s turn patiently on my review stack.
The story of Bellamy, a gal from a large, middle-class family who is engaged to Reid who comes from a wealthy, upper-crust background. As Bellamy plans her dream wedding, she stresses over meeting the standards of Reid’s family and accidentally makes a purchase that could put a stop to everything. I loved how Reid’s mom stepped in to set things right and proved that you really can’t buy love.
“Can’t Buy Me Love” is truly a story about love, family, what is truly important, and forgiveness.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
In this e-novella kicking off the brand-new Destination Wedding series, Bellamy, a bride-to-be who dreams of a one-of-a-kind Manhattan wedding, gets caught up in all the planning, and things quickly spin out of control. What is the true cost of an ultimate uptown wedding?
Bellamy grew up in a large, boisterous family. The Hillmans may not have had it all, but Bellamy learned how to stretch a dollar and make it look like she did. Now she’s marrying Reid Stanton, the man of her dreams. While planning their one-of-a-kind Manhattan destination wedding, Bellamy gets caught up in all things Pinterest. It starts out simply enough with a “Save the Date Destination Wedding” board. Then it’s the “Destination Wedding Dresses” and “Invitations” boards. As her ideas multiply, so does the cost of the wedding.
Before she realizes it, all her creative planning has decimated the budget. Can Bellamy make things right, or will the cost of the ultimate wedding be losing the man she loves?
NOTE — the e-novella also includes an excerpt of Crazy Little Thing Called Love, the first novel in the series, which releases June 30, 2015.
