The Wedding Charm: The Wedding Whisperer by Susan Hatler {Review}

The Wedding Charm: The Wedding Whisperer
by Susan Hatler
Kindle Edition, 119 pages
Publication: April 13th 2017 by Hatco Publishing

Maid of honor Sarah Carlton hasn’t failed at anything since her high school science project was sabotaged by a relentless competitor. So, she’ll do whatever it takes to make her best friend Jill’s wedding absolutely perfect. That includes taking the next flight out of Sacramento to retrieve the panicked bride’s cherished family wedding charm from her late grandmother’s attic in Atlanta Georgia.

Unfortunately, someone else has offered to come to the bride’s rescue—best man Ben Atkins, the same man who destroyed Sarah’s high school science project all those years ago. Now he wants to one-up her by retrieving the charm first? Sarah refuses to let that happen. The race is on.

When Sarah and Ben arrive in Atlanta, instead of finding the wedding charm there’s a letter from the bride’s grandmother directing the bride and groom to complete a series of tasks in order to prove their commitment to each other. With the wedding only two days away, Sarah and Ben must join forces by pretending to be the bride and groom in order to earn the wedding charm. Should be a cinch. After all, how hard can it be to fake true love for forty-eight hours?


My Review: 5 Stars

Isn't it said that hate and love are closely related feelings? Sarah and Ben have a past that goes back to Kindergarten. Sarah has always had a crush from afar, but Ben seems to tease her and compete with her way too much for her liking. When they both "compete" on a quest to get her best friend's lucky wedding charm before the big day, they're both surprised at how close those two feelings are.

The trickery, quick thinking, and working together, along with a stray dog, Moose, really bring these two to full realization of their feelings. While posing as their friends, the lines are blurred and I couldn't help but smile and laugh at the antics that Ben and Sarah go through. I love the quests they have to complete and how far-fetched some of them seemed. All of them ended up really making me laugh. I also loved the descriptions of Atlanta and the Southern charm. I love the lengths these two go to for their friends--what loyalty. Even though it seems to be full of games, this story brings in a realistic and serious note towards the end, when Sarah is challenged by a friend to keep a promise. Of course, it all results in swoon.

There's something about weddings that really puts the feeling of love into the air and I'm so excited for this whole series!

Content: mild romance (kissing); moments of deception with good intent.
