    Contemporary Fiction

    The Almost Wife by Jade Beer Driving in to Beirut this morning and recapping the story in this book to my friend she asked me, “How will you write a review for it?” and now I sit here trying to figure out how to write about the owner of a bridal shop meeting, helping and becoming in the lives of three women getting ready for their wedding day. The owner, Helen, is a widow but a woman that truly loved her husband for nearly forty years before he passed on. Her insights, charm and care help each bride that comes into her shop. Now, how to give a review without ruing the story? Three women plan a wedding but only one marries…that is known…it is in the book blurb BUT why? What happens? And, how do their stories impact the reader and the other characters in the book? I told my friend I would mention “family” and how one bride found it, eventually, to be more important than she thought. I would mention that love is more than a wedding dress or the day or anything paid for to make the day special. The communication and inability to communicate what is really important is…important. The bumps in the road one encounters on the way to matrimony and true happiness and how one deals with those bumps can seem insurmountable but…communication and trust and a bit more as one determines who they are and what is ultimately important rings true and is visible throughout this book. This book deals with emotions, love, the process and stress of planning a wedding and also it deals with so much more. This is not an easy to read book with fluff and laughter but one that deals with emotions and family and love and caring and…so much more. Did I enjoy it? Yes – though it did have some dark times Would I read more by this author – Yes, definitely. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC - This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars

    A quality read

    As I started reading this book, the first few chapters were so cumbersome in the author's descriptions of everything, I truly did not think I would be able to continue. But I hung in there and boy, am I glad I did! This book is about 3 very different women preparing for their weddings: Jessie, a bridezilla marrying into a wealthy family; Dolly, a wannabe Brides Magazine featured bride and wedding; and Emily, a woman lucky enough to be marrying her best friend. Each woman sees her upcoming wedding in a different light. The Almost Wife is a riveting story that will make you feel a variety of emotions from disgust, frustration, disappointment, despair and hope. In my opinion, Jessie needed a reality check with a strong gulp of humility while Dolly needed a large dose of reality. But it was Emily's story that moved me to tears at the unfairness of her life's circumstances. This author has written a beautiful book and her characters are well-defined and multidimensional. I rated this book 4 stars out of 5 due to the superfluous descriptions in the early chapters and honestly, skipped over much of the excessive narrative. However, the story is a quality read and worth the investment of time.

    A heart-wrenching story.

    4.5 Stars The Almost Wife is about three women, Jessie, Dolly and Emily, as they are approaching their wedding days. Jessie is the ultimate bridezilla. Her approach to wedding planning truly left me cringing. She is shooting for utter perfection. However, she is a woman who always felt out of place, but her fiancé Adam truly grounds her. Next, there is Dolly. She is truly struggling. First it is her desire to be as slim as possible. It is also her connection with her boyfriend Josh. They truly loved one another at one time, but things have become strained. Then, Dolly has an awful job, with an equally awful boss. Stressed enough about wedding planning, things quickly change for Dolly. Next to mention is Emily. Happy as can be, with fantastic parents, and the absolutely perfect husband-to-be. She is taking her wedding planning in stride. However, some shocking news changes everything. How will she move forward? I was just shocked at how things turned out for her. Our last impressive character to mention is Helen, the bridal shop owner. She is working with these three women and becomes intimately involved with them. Her personal life has taken a serious hit and she herself seeks personal growth. Of the three women seeking for a glorious wedding day, only two will make it up the aisle, and only one will marry. Upon first glance, they are all strangers, however, their lives do intersect. This story is told from several perspectives. The chapters are of perfect length because, as a reader, I was drawn into each of the four women's stories and emotions. Yes, Jessie was over-the-top, but she became someone that I found that, if need be, I could forgive. Then there was Dolly, I really felt for her with her changed circumstances. Sadly, I cried for Emily, more than once. And, who couldn't love Helen? She was going through her own angst, but she was a marvelous support for the brides-to-be. This was a heart-wrenching book, a truly fantastic page-turner, written exceptionally well. I love the fact that the author has experience in the art of wedding planning, thus making the stories work so well. From the descriptions of the dresses, designers and locations, the women and their emotions, well, it was just perfect. Usually, I don't want to put a book as good as this down, but I just had to at times in order to absorb what was happening to the women, whether to yell at one of the characters or to shed tears more than once. If this is how Jade Beer will be writing all of her books, she has just found a new fan. Many thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for an honest review.
