Jennifer Lopez’s the Wedding Planner meets Nia Vardalos’ My Big Fat Greek Wedding, without the wedding. Wedding planner left at the altar.
I have to start this review with strongly recommending that you consume this book in audiobook format. The banter and humor in this book is lost on the reader unless you can hear it in their accents and with their sarcasm.
It’s a classic enemies to lovers. Story is told from different perspectives and the representation of strong women in Carolina’s family is amazing. Carolina is Brazilian and the sass that comes from her mother, Tias and her girlfriends is laugh out loud funny. ESPECIALLY via audiobook.
This isn’t a heavy thought provoking read, but instead think of it as one of those 90’s Romantic comedy movies you keep coming back to when you are feeling nostalgic.
The audiobook is available for free via Hoopla through your local library.
