Who knew you could find the love of your life at the wedding from hell ....
Konigsburg, Book 2
Janie Dupree will do anything to make sure her best friend has the wedding of her dreams, even if it means relinquishing what every bridesmaid covets and never gets - the perfect maid-of-honor dress. Problem is, family drama as tangles as a clump of Texas prickly pear cactus threatens to send the skittish bride hopping aboard the elopement express.
Janie could use a hand, but the best man's "help" is only making things worse.
Pete Toleffson just wants to get through his brother's wedding and back to his county attorney job in Des Moines. He never expected to be the engineer on a wedding train that's derailing straight toward hell. Janie's the kind of girl he'd like to get close to - but her self-induced role as "Miss Fix-It" is as infuriating as it is adorable.
If they can just fend off meddling parents, vindictive in-laws, spiteful ex-boyfriends, and a greyhound named Olive long enough to achieve matrimonial liftoff, maybe they can admit they're head-over-heels in love.
First off, let me just say, this was seriously one of the weddings from hell. Think Murphy's Law plus family drama and you have a near explosion! This book was so funny and the sexual tension, amazing. Janie's character was so much fun to read about. If they had classes in being a witch, she seriously needed to take them. She was a fixer, someone you could rely on to put her own feelings aside to help others. Pete, he was so sexy and adorable. His character was a take charge kind of guy with a seriously funny side to him that he didn't even have to try to work toward. The building relationship between Janie and Pete was scorching hot and absolutely sizzled. For Pete and Janie, love came calling when they least expected it.
Wedding Bell Blues was a laugh out loud funny read with very believable, dramatic characters. I found myself not able to turn the pages fast enough to find out what happened next. It was truly a fascinating and engaging read and I want more. I am so thankful that this is only book 2 in the series and I can look forward to more writing that sparkles with wit and humor.
I have never read any of Ms. Benjamin's work before and found it to be very well written and highly entertaining. The style with which Ms. Benjamin writes is very relatable and intriguing. She definitely writes with the reader in mind and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I will certainly be reading book 1 - Venus in Blue Jeans as soon as possible and any further books in the series will be an automatic add for me. This is a family that I easily fell in love with about and I hope there are many more books to come. I consider Ms. Benjamin's work to be an automatic add to my to be read list. I strongly recommend you pick up this book as it has everything - humor, drama, mystery and a whole lot of sexual tension!
