Contemp Review: The Wedding Party [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "The Wedding Party" by Robyn Carr.

Product Description

After her divorce, Charlene Dugan vowed never to get married again — a promise she has kept for twenty-five years. Until the fateful day she finds herself uttering the well-known phrase — "Let's get married!"

Almost immediately, Charlene's seemingly perfect life begins unraveling at the seams. Daughter Stephanie's own relationship is about to disintegrate, and she might be just a teensy-weensy bit jealous of her mom. And Charlene seems to be spending more time with her ex-husband than with her fiancé, Dennis. What's more confusing is that Dennis doesn't seem to mind too much. In fact, he sees the wedding consultant more often than Charlene does.

The wedding party is now officially out of control. They're calling for rain and the bride has cold feet. This isn't exactly what Charlene had in mind. But maybe it's not too late to finally decide on who and what she really wants.

My Review:

Charlene Dugan is determined never to get married again after her disastrous marriage/divorce which she has kept for twenty-five years.  Then she utters the words "let's get married" to her new boyfriend Dennis.

Her daughter Stephanie's relationship with her boyfriend Grant seems to be on the verge of disintegration and she is jealous of her mom.  She wants to move back home which Charlie isn't too keen about.  Charlie is spending more time with her ex-husband Jake then Dennis her fiancee.  Dennis sees the wedding consultant more than her.

I didn't really like this cheating thing - Dennis didn't break up with Charlie before getting involved with the wedding consultant (Charlie caught them) and Charlie didn't break up with Dennis before falling into bed again with Jake.
