A Beautiful Wedding - Jamie McGuire
"You were right," I said.
Travis pulled back to look at me, curious.
"You were my last first kiss."

Short stories, more often than not, are never enough for me. However, I really enjoyed Beautiful Disaster and when I found this hardcover copy for three bucks, I grabbed it quickly.

It took me a few minutes to remember what had happened in the first book. Jamie McGuire does a pretty good job of filling in all that information, though. I was annoyed at the way a few sentences were worded. It almost felt like the author did a hurry-up job of writing this novella. But, as I read on, I found out that just wasn't the case.

There are a bunch of emotional moments in this story. Whether it was Abby trying to save Travis, Abby speaking of her new family, or America being upset over a very important day in Abby's life.

One thing I didn't understand, though, was when Trent texted Abby telling her that he should have won an Oscar for his statement to the police, Abby tells Travis that it was America and that she was mad. I assumed that meant Abby tried to make it look like America knew about their wedding. However, later on, at the tattoo shop, America calls and is talking to Abby who then tells America about the ceremony. So didn't Travis realize that Abby was lying to him before? Does this come up later?

I don't know, but the last part of the book was really nice and one of my favorite parts was the letter (and I don't want to go into detail about that if you haven't read this book yet).

It was a fast read, and it helped me catch up on the characters. I'll be ready to go when I start the first book in the Maddox Brothers series.

Recommended if you've read Beautiful Disaster or Walking Disaster.
