Summary:  Always the wedding planner, never a bride, Elliot Lynch is famous for orchestrating the splashiest weddings in Charleston, South Carolina. When her father’s sloppy management practices leave them on the brink of bankruptcy, Elliot will do whatever it takes to save the family business. When asked to appear on “The Marrying Type,” a reality TV show about the people behind the scenes as couples exchange I dos, she says yes to the invasion of privacy (and the hefty paycheck that comes with it).

With a camera crew capturing every detail of her life, Elliot faces her most challenging contract yet: planning a wedding where her ex is involved in every part of the process. Add in a lazy assistant, liquor-loving bridesmaid, and rival planner encroaching on her turf, and Elliot’s wedding season goes from high-end to high-stress.

Forced to confront her past, Elliot must live out her troubled present on national TV if she has any hope of saving her future.

Review:  I was given an ARC of this novel in exchange for my honest opinion, and I absolutely loved this book. This book tells the story of wedding planner, Elliot Lynch, and the sacrifices she makes for her family's business, Engagements; including starring on a reality show. Along the way, Elliot must plan a wedding for her ex-boyfriend's sister, and he's involved in the entire process. I loved the bond between Elliot and Sadie, and even the strained (at times) bond between Elliot and Eric. Overall, this novel was one of my favorite reads of this year, and I highly recommend this novel!
