Save the Date - Allie Spencer
Source: Review copy from Arrow
Family weddings can be hell.
...and, marooned in Italy for her cousin's nuptials, Ailsa can be forgiven for thinking that this one is worse than most. With the bride and groom at loggerheads and the guests in uproar, it is a million miles away from the rest and relaxation she'd been hoping for.
And then suddenly, in the middle of the mayhem, she comes face-to-face with Nick, the man she walked out on just a few months earlier.
How can Ailsa help get the wedding back on track when she and Nick can't stop arguing? But if they do, she might remember why she fell in love with him in the first place - and then there really would be trouble.
Just finished Save The Date, my head is seriously banging. I think I've just found the most exhausting read ever. It was seriously far too much for me. It is drama after drama after drama after drama after drama. It doesn't stop. For me it was too much and I started to drift and be aware that the next chapter was not going to be plain sailing. It's such a shame too because it really has a good overall plot and superb characters. It's extremely witty and dark humoured with sarcastic comments, and I love that which is why I was deflated with the constant drama. Please read it for yourself though, This is my personal preference. I can hand on heart say that I'm probably 1 in 10 who will say it was too much for them. I honestly can't fault the flow of the writing nor the overall story.
If you're looking for non stop action, jam packed pages full of romance, heartbreak and scandal then this is the book for you.
To the people who will question why I've given the book a 4/5 when I said negative things about it. Please remember the overall story and writing deserves the score it got, the 1 point from perfection was obviously only the one issue I had with it.
