Review & Giveaway: An Event to Remember...or Forget by Melissa Baldwin

An Event to Remember Tour

An event to remember or forget An Event to Remember... or Forget
Sienna Harris is a girl with a plan. Her days of slaving away at Carrie’s Classic Events and More are numbered as she is on the brink of launching her own event planning company. Her relationship with Luke Price is headed in the right direction and they are approaching their one-year mark. The future is looking bright and she knows that life could not get any better . . . That is until her perfectly planned world is thrown upside down by the unexpected arrival of someone from Luke’s past. She receives the shock of her life on the night of the biggest event of her career. Sienna will now have to pull it all together without a list or a plan. The question is, can she do it?

My Review: Does anyone else ever have characters they love to hate? I felt like this one had a few and some of them were surprising--not who I expected to hate.  For me, personally, the story was a little hard to get into because it was in first person, present tense. I'm just not used to reading books that way--as though it's happening right at the moment. Once I adjusted, it was fine and I really got into it.

Sienna is a woman who is basically running the event planning company that she works for and has a devil of a boss. She is very high-strung, yet very good at what she does. She has a plan and desperately wants everything to go according to plan and to fall in place just as it should. Nothing ever works out that perfectly, as she soon learns.

Sienna is so put together and smart, yet very clueless and frustrating in some ways. It seems that most of the "love to hate" characters are very close to her and she lets them walk all over her. It was great to see her take a stand and be strong. I loved the friendship that Sienna has with her besties--Abby and Madison. She also has a great working relationship with Craig and it was fun to see the banter.

Content: moderate language; no violence; mild romance. Clean for an older reader.
