Emerson Sinclair, twenty-seven year old hotel heiress, has said yes. With just over a year to plan her extravagant, over the top nuptials to Logan Worthington, it’s all hands on deck with the wedding plans. A Sinclair marrying into the Worthington family is the talk of their small New Hampshire town, and ideas include filming the wedding for a TV segment.
But as the items get checked off the list, plans start to go … not as planned. From not getting a designer dress to a selfish bridesmaid and unaccountable best man, Emerson is afraid her wedding will be more a joke than anything.
When both her mother and sister seemingly begin to lose interest in her wedding plans in favor of their own personal lives, Emerson fears her big day will turn into the forgotten wedding. With the pressure to pull off a beautiful and elegant event that everyone expects from their respectable families, Emerson starts to forget the reason why she is saying I Do in the first place.
But her spirited Grams is there to make sure neither happens. With her help and guidance, Emerson not only has her wedding plans back on track, but she remembers the reason why they are going through the stress of wedding planning – because at the end of it all she gets to marry her true love, and marriage is defined by more than a wedding.
★★★★☆ : Great! I liked this book!
Emerson Sinclair was on cloud nine. Her beloved boyfriend Logan Worthington finally proposed to her (and proposed again, and again, and again). The couple never got tired reliving their moment of bliss. Until wedding preparations started. Everything that Emerson wanted to happen in her wedding, she made sure everything would take place.
But fate was playing tricks on her. Patience of wedding coordinators and dress designers were put to test, arguments ensued, differences emerged, family members who were members of the entourage became difficult to deal with. It looked like her hope for a grand wedding of the century (who was supposed to have a TV coverage, too) was going down the drain. Would she ever say I Do in the end?
I instantly liked the story from page one. Although my right eyebrow was raised when Logan repeatedly proposed to his betrothed heiress, I knew that there was a promise of a beautiful relationship between them. I thought theirs was a match made in heaven. But, hold on to your seats, dear readers, as Emerson and Logan struggled to find their way to everlasting love. The road they had to take wasn’t an easy one. There were a lot of bumps and humps and flat tires along the way. Good thing, there were some magic fairy dust from Grandma that helped make these troubles disappear. Did Grandma use her magic wand? You’ll have to read this book and find out.
I suddenly remembered my own wedding when I finished Up To I Do. It was a garden wedding shared with family and friends. There weren’t so many guests, because we wanted it to be private and solemn. W thought we wouldn’t be able to pull it off. Fortunately, my own fairy godmother was there to help.
And soon, you will believe that there is Forever!
