REVIEW: The Wedding Reject Table (Choc Lit) (Nashville Connections Book 4) by Angela Britnell
Once on the reject table, always on the reject table?
When Maggie Taylor, a cake decorator, and Chad Robertson, a lawyer from Nashville Tennessee, meet at a wedding in Cornwall it’s not under the best circumstances.
They have both been assigned to ‘the reject table’, alongside a toxic collection of grumpy great aunts, bitter divorcees and stuffy organists.
Maggie has grown used to being the reject, although when Chad helps her out of a wedding cake disaster she begins to wonder whether the future could hold more for her.
But will Chad be strong enough to deal with the other problems in Maggie’s life? Because a ruined cake isn’t the only issue she has – not by a long shot.
Dear Ms. Britnell,
It’s summer and weddings are busting out all over the place. And to go along with them come emotional brides, harried staff and a whole host of issues. Here a roguish (in a good way) Nashville lawyer meets and falls for a sweet English cake baker with a lifelong Bridezilla for a sister.
Maggie is frankly stunned that this gorgeous hunk of a Southern drawling man is interested in her but he definitely is. He’s also willing to help her out when she needs it and does much to salvage her new company’s reputation while providing something novel and sure to be talked about during the wedding season.
Chad might have a reputation back home in Tennessee as flirtatious man-on-the-town but he quickly sees Maggie is someone special. He stands up to the previously mentioned bitter divorcee, frosty great aunt and pissy sister for her and presses to see Maggie again. He is, in fact, almost too perfect to be true.
Chad is a lawyer who is used to talking clients into or out of anything and making arguments. He seemingly always has the perfect thing to say and the best way to smooth over a crisis. Soon he’s working his vocal magic helping Maggie deal with her sister’s tantrums and meltdowns – weapons that Emily has used to get her own way for her entire life.
This is a novella so I expect things to have to move quickly but soon it’s all squared away and lifelong behaviors are on the way to being changed for the better. Yes, I’d love to believe that this could actually happen and that shy, retiring Maggie is convinced of her true worth but in reality I think I needed a few more chapters to be sure. It’s all nice and sweet and frothy though. C+
