Reading Wednesday - Sister of the Bride by Susan Mallery

This book gets three out of five stars. The writing was great, as with all of Susan Mallery's stories, but the novella format was simply too short to convey a realistic story.

This novella follows Katie, who's spending the week at a hotel in preparation for her sister's wedding. In order to avoid the awkward questions from relatives regarding why she's not in a relationship, her mother sets her up with the son of a friend. Who she remembers as a dorky teenager is now anything but.

The thing that bothered me most about the book was it's abruptness. While it contained many twists and turns (as much as you would expect for a romance anyways), the characters go from relationship level 0 to relationship level 10 in a span of three days. If spread out over months it would have been charming, but in such a condensed period it just felt forced. That being said, I look forward to reading the next full-length book in this series.
