My Review: 

I found Kelly Smith's The Wedding was a fantastic novel to spend my time on a gloomy, rainy day. It made me forget all about the dark clouds outside and brought a little brightness into my life for the moment. It was a story of loss, love, and friendship. 
It was great meeting Grace, Piper, Sydney and Rachel. The foursome had a beautiful and special bond with one another. I enjoyed getting to know each one and seeing what would happen to them and what changes they would experienced. I felt as though I was part of their group. I was curious to see which one would be walking down the aisle next. I loved going on this emotional and relatable journey with these women and finding out where they are in the end. It was not hard for me to continuing reading the whole novel in one sitting. I loved every single page.

Five plus stars is what The Wedding deserves. I highly recommend it for fans of adult fiction and contemporary romance will not want to miss it. It is most definitely worth a reading. I would love to read more books like this one from the talented author, Kelly Smith, in the future. I am curious to see what releases she has in store for her characters and readers. 

I received a paperback copy of Kelly Smith's The Wedding from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
