Title: A Beautiful Wedding: A Beautiful Disaster Novella by Jamie McGuire
Published December 10, 2013; Atria Books
Genre: romance novella

First paragraph:
Abby: I could feel it coming: a growing, persistent unease that crept just below my skin. The more I tried to ignore it, the more unbearable it became: an itch that needed to be scratched, a scream bubbling to the surface. My father said the urgent need to run when things were about to go wrong was like a tic, a defense mechanism inherent in the Abernathys. I'd felt it moments before the fire, and I was feeling it now. 
Teaser (ch.9):
My phone buzzed in my purse. I checked it quickly.
Cops just left. Dad's @ Tim's but I told them you guys were in Vegas getting married. I think they f---ing bought it.
Publisher description:
Everything about Abby and Travis’s elopement was top-secret . . . until now. Fans of Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster will get all of their questions answered in this whirlwind tale of the wedding day (and night!).

Would you keep reading?

Thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book for review/feature.

  1. Okay, now I'm intrigued...I especially want to know more about the characters who have the urge to run when things are about to go wrong. A tic? Interesting characterization.

  2. This sounds like a book I'd enjoy, but it seems like I'd better read Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster first!
    My Teaser is from CHRISTMAS CALLING.

  7. Sounds interesting, but I'm not into series, and sounds like I would have to read the other two to enjoy this one. I'm so glad you are enjoying the series. Keep on reading...

  15. Hi Harvee! That's a great teaser. I'm here from Ann's Reading Corner. You left a comment about the teaser Ann posted from my memoir! Just wanted to say thank you for that...and nice to meet you!

  16. Maybe this one is not my cup of tea, On the other hand the little that I know about this series makes it seems a bit different from other books with similar themes.

  17. Evidently, from goodreads reviews, the main character Travis Maddox is quite a guy. I guess it means one should read the previous two books to get the full impact of the stories.
