Book Shelf: A Beautiful Wedding (Beautiful, #2.5) by Jamie McGuire

You know that Abby Abernathy unexpectedly became Mrs. Maddox. But what do you really know?

Why did Abby pop the question?
What secrets were shared before the ceremony?
Where did they spend their wedding night?
Who else knew about it . . . and didn’t tell?

Everything about Abby and Travis’s elopement was top-secret . . . until now. Fans of Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster will get all of their questions answered in this whirlwind tale of the wedding day (and night!)—and as with all good stories, this one will definitely have been worth the wait.

More info on Goodreads.......


A Beautiful Wedding by Jamie McGuire is the tender filled novella that details the events leading up to Abby and Travis's shotgun wedding in Las Vegas and slightly afterwards that fans of the series have been dying to see since McGuire introuduced us to this amazing pair in A Beautiful Disaster!

I have to admit, after reading both A Beautiful Disaster and A Walking Disaster, there was a little part of me that really felt cheated. We went through such an amazingly intense and passionate journey with Abby and Travis, but throughout both books we were never able to fully expierence there joining together as man and wife as this wasn't something McGuire featured heavily in either book.

In A Beautiful Wedding, Jamie McGuire finally allows her fans to experince that magical moment where Abby and Travis tie the knot and boy does she not dissapoint. Whilst this story is bursting with love and devotion, it wouldn't be a Beauitful novel if there wasn't trials for both Abby and Travis to face.

Abby and Travis's relationship has been one difficulty after another; one more obstacle for them to overcome after the last and A Beautiful Wedding is no exception, with McGuire exploring eveything that make these two perfect for one another once more and revisiting exactly what makes their relationship so strong--their ferice love and the dedication they have for one another. These two hold such passion and intensity, but it's the solid love they share that always sets them apart.

Friends and family also join Abby and Travis in this romantic and sweet novella, proving it wouldn't be perfect unless those who love them were involved. Jamie McGuire knows exactly what readers need to see and how to leave them knowing without a doubt Abby and Travis will have their happily ever after. This is one fan who finds herself very satisfied with this lush novella and I have to give McGuire a pat on the back--it couldn't have been more beautiful!

My Recommendation: Fans of this series will not want to miss this
Cover: Not the biggest fan--it could have been better.
Will I read sequel/continue with series: Not sure if there will be any more in this series per say, but whatever Jamie McGuire writes next I'll read, including Trent's story!

  1. I started this one a few weeks ago, but I didn't carry on only because other things came up ASAP. So I must finish it off. Did you see the title for Trent's book has been released. Woot! I am looking forward to his book. Glad you thought this one was beautiful ! Hun don't forget to send me whatever you want me to get signed at the Gold Coast event. I am more than happy to get anything signed for you. We are driving down and staying for 2 nights!!
