The Wedding Pearls by Carolyn Brown - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Tessa has always wondered where her clumsiness comes from. She knows she's adopted and she never managed to keep up with her mother's gracefulness and ability to dance. Tessa has a travel agency together with her cousin. She usually books trips for other people, but this time she gets the chance to see something of the country herself. Tessa receives an invitation to travel with her birth mother, grandmother, grandmother's best friend, a suspended teenager and their lawyer Branch. She's never met the family before and instead of slowly getting to know them she's about to spend each hour of the day for an entire month with them, will this be a good plan?

While traveling with two crazy old ladies, a mother with tattoos and plenty of attitude and a teenager who got caught in high school drama with a high price Tessa slowly finds the fiery side of herself. Sparks fly between her and Branch and Tessa's grandmother would like her family's heirloom, beautiful wedding pearls, to finally have their chance to shine again. Tessa has a strong connection with her new family, but the trip isn't only about joy and happiness, it will be an emotional roller coaster she'll never forget. Will it change Tessa's life forever?

The Wedding Pearls is a fantastic original story. I loved every single page of this magical book. Tessa is a kindhearted woman with a lovely caring personality. While traveling with her new family she discovers she also has a fierce and protective side. Her childhood was filled with love and getting to know her biological family only makes that feeling stronger. Tessa adores the crazy side of the ladies she's on a trip with. They're fun, dynamic and their pizzazz knows no bounds. I fell in love with the two fabulous old friends from the beginning as well, reading about them put a huge smile on my face. Their adventures are truly terrific and I had a brilliant time reading about the trip and each destination.

Carolyn Brown has a wonderful heartwarming writing style. Her stories are true gems and each one has found a place in my heart. The Wedding Pearls is an amazing book. The road trip of a lifetime is filled with surprises, there's plenty of mischief, I loved the terrific banter, life lessons and deep wisdom and the ladies' abundance of creative plans made me laugh out loud. There's such a strong bond between the main characters, everything fits and the romance made my heart sing. I love it when a story impresses me so much that it will stay with me for many years and The Wedding Peals definitely falls into that category. There aren't enough superlatives to describe this story. It's an absolute must-read.

Advice

If you love heartwarming stories about friends and family combined with plenty of lovely romance  you don't want to miss The Wedding Pearls.

About Carolyn Brown


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carolyn Brown was born in Texas and raised in southern Oklahoma. These days she and her husband make their home in Davis, Oklahoma, a small town of less than three thousand people where everyone knows everyone, knows what they are doing and with whom, and read the weekly newspaper to see who got caught.

A plaque hangs on her office wall that says I know the voices are not real but they have such great ideas. That is her motto and muse as she goes through the days with quirky characters in her head, telling their stories, one by one, and loving her job.

She has been married almost half a century to a retired English teacher that she calls Mr. B and he does not read her books before they are published because she cannot afford a divorce. They have three grown children.—and enough grandchildren to keep them busy and young.

When Carolyn is not writing she likes to sit in the back yard and watch the two tom cats protect the yard from all kinds of wicked varmints like crickets, other cats, spiders and blue jays.
