Review: Confessions of a Wedding Planner by Michelle Jo Quinn


Confessions of a Wedding Planner
Michelle Jo Quinn

Bliss #1

Published July 26th 2016

Purchase: Amazon
He may be the best man, but he’s the worst man for her…

Wedding planner, Veronica Soto-Stewart believes everyone deserves a fairy tale–even her ex-boyfriend. Unable to refuse his request, and with the help of Bliss Events motley crew, she finds herself creating the most magical event for the perfect couple.

But nothing is ever perfect…
And not all happy ever afters can be planned…

Levi Laurent can’t believe his luck. Thanks to his best friend’s wedding, he finally has a shot at the woman he’s always wanted–Veronica. From San Francisco to Paris, and back, he pulls out all the stops, so she knows where she really belongs–with him. But Veronica wants nothing to do with the rich, sexy, irresistible playboy.

Can Levi convince Veronica that her perfect happily ever after is closer than she ever realized?

My Review

After reading the blurb, it lead me to believe that Confessions of a Wedding Planner would be told from the alternating POV's of Veronica and Levi. I was halfway through when I resigned myself to the fact that that wasn't going to happen. This greatly disappointed me because it made the novel feel as though it was missing half the story. We never really learn the when and how Levi began having feelings for Veronica, we're just told that it happened at some point before we came alone for the journey.

Confessions of a Wedding Planner is probably one of the cleanest romance novels that I have read, like ever. There's no swearing, no sex scenes, and not even a make-out scene. I mean, there are a couple of kisses between Veronica and Levi, but nothing to get hot and bothered about, and there are a few times when there's nudity, but the only descriptor is 'naked,' so I don't think it would've made much of a difference if they were clothed. I am torn as to whether this is a positive or a negative for the novel... I mean, it's romance, not erotica, but without any real passionate scenes, we are only ever really told of Veronica's feelings rather than being shown them.

This book could really do with a heavy proofread as there are many typos and sentences that could use a restructure. I was ready to let it slide until I realised that this is the second edition of the book. This is really only an issue, I feel, if you are a bit OCD about that kind of stuff - which I am, sadly.

Quinn did a good job with the plotline, though drops the ball somewhat with the excitation. If you're not a fussy reader and like a little romance, then this is a good book for you.
