“A June Bride” Book Review

Jul 6, 2015 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing Marybeth Whalen’s book, A June Bride. Now I know it isn’t June, but here is A June Bride only 6 days into July!


As is my custom, if I could ask Marybeth one question about A June Bride, it would be — “What made you want to write about ‘home life’ of celebrities?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!


And without further ado, onto Rachel’s Back Talk!


From the Back Cover:

The Rejection Connection hardly sounds like the place to fall in love, but Wynne Hardy walked off the reality-TV set with an engagement ring. And in the whirlwind of publicity and preparation that follows a TV-bride-to-be in her fifteen minutes of fame, Wynne barely has time to consider how she really feels about her new fiancé . . . to say nothing of how she still feels about her ex.

As the wedding plans develop, so too do Wynne’s doubts: Is she in love with Andy? Or is this really about Callum—the ex-boyfriend who sent her onto Rejection Connection in the first place? A nationally televised snub might be the best revenge . . . but is it a good reason to get married?

When Callum resurfaces at the worst possible moment, Wynne can’t help wondering if she’s made a huge mistake. Is her marriage a publicity stunt? And what happens when the cameras stop rolling, and she has a husband she barely knows?

This novella was a short and sweet read. It was easy for me to read in two days, especially with it being divided into three parts. Marybeth’s writing was clear, easy to read, but it could quickly pull me into her story.

Wynne drove me crazy at some points, yet at the same time, I could see her motivation for what she did. She was deeply wounded and just trying to move on with her life. Rushing into a marriage though is not what I would recommend, but by the end of the book, Wynne realizes which man she truly cares for — the one who hurt her or the one who helped her moved on.


Other books by Marybeth I will read next:
