What it’s about:

A wedding florist finds love and trouble in this delightful new novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Ladies’ Night.

A Savannah florist is about to score the wedding of a lifetime—one that will solidify her career as the go-to-girl for society nuptials. Ironically, Cara Kryzik doesn’t believe in love, even though she creates beautiful flower arrangements to celebrate them. But when the bride goes missing and the wedding is in jeopardy, Cara must find the bride and figure out what she believes in. Maybe love really does exist outside of fairy tales after all.

Told with Mary Kay Andrew’s trademark wit and keen eye for detail, mark your calendars for Save the Date!

My Thoughts:

 

In Mary Kay Andrews’ delightful contemporary romance, Save The Date, the southern charm spills out of the pages. Cara Mia Kryzik’s floral shop is slowly growing, and if her equipment would stop breaking down, she might be able to pay off her outstanding loans. Lining up a few events for Savannah’s elite society would also help!

Through bridezillas, monster {step} mothers-of-the-brides, insubordinate assistants and an unethical competitor, Cara keeps up her spirits and never gives up the fight to be a successful business owner.   I loved this half-glass full, sweet-as-pie heroine whose loyalty and dedication are beyond admirable. Who can’t get behind a character who always takes the high road?

Bert, the shop assistant, may be late to work and take long lunches, but he has an eye for floral design and he is a good friend. At least Cara thought he was a good friend… If nothing else, Bert provides a little levity and girl talk.

Being a floral designer, you naturally attend a lot of weddings, and surprisingly you might end up seeing the same eligible, yet irritating, bachelor at most of them. Now, Jack Finnerty really isn’t all that irritating. He’s well known in the community not only for his restoration of old homes but also for his sexy, southern gentlemanly charm. Between his dog and his perseverance, Cara has no chance but to become “friends” with Jack. Cara’s stubbornly insists on doing everything on her own, which makes Jack’s good intentions less appreciated than hoped. Fortunately, the sage advice of several parental figures set love on the right track again.

Romance, angst, beautiful weddings, humorous pet mix-ups, and all sorts of conflict make Save the Date the perfect fun summer Chick Lit read. It’s like the frothy, fruity drink you want to quench your thirst by the pool.

 

The audiobook is fantastically narrated by Kathleen McInerney
