Abby Blackwell runs a successful wedding planning business. She’s delighted when Derrick, her boyfriend of only a few short months proposes. Abby immediately accepts and dreams of the perfect wedding at the Rose Chalet. But, when Derrick with no explanation, pressures her to get married as soon as possible, she has to wonder why and drags her feet.

Derrick Coltrane's future rests on portraying a settled, respectable and married man. All he needs is a wife—now—and Abby fits the bill. She’s successful, smart, gorgeous, and would make the perfect corporate wife. He just needs to convince her to tie-the-knot by the end of the month to close the most important deal of his career.

Hunter Price knows he’s made the biggest mistake of his life. Derrick, a friend from school, hires him to pretend he’s getting married, in an attempt to trick Abby into planning her own whirlwind wedding. Abby is selfless, sweet, tastes like sunshine, and belongs to someone else—and he just kissed her.

Two grooms-to-be—one bride-to-be and one bridesmaid. Which couple will walk down the aisle to happily ever after?

Mini Book Review:

The Wedding Switch is a short fan fiction based off of New York Times Bestselling author Lucy Kevin’s Four Weddings and a Fiasco series. In The Wedding Switch, Abby is a successful wedding planner and she's engaged to Derrick Coltrane, a man unknowingly to her is using her to get a much sought after promotion at work. He needs to be married right away, but Abby's having second thoughts and isn't sure she wants to marry him. So Derrick calls in Hunter Price, to help move things along. At first Hunter wants no part in Derrick's plan, but once he sees Abby's picture he needs to meet her, even if that means accepting Derrick's plan.

The Wedding Switch was a very nice, short romantic read. I really liked Abby and her BFF Alessandra. I hated Derrick for using Abby just to get a promotion. There were many times I wanted to punch him. And Hunter is very sweet and I really liked him. I do think that this book would have been a lot better if it were a full length novel. I would have liked to read about how Abby and Derrick met, Alessandra is a very interesting character that I would have liked to see more of, and I wanted to see more development between Abby and Hunter. I really didn't like the instant love between them. Instant love really only works in paranormal or fantasy books and not in contemporaries.


I gave The Wedding Switch a 3 STAR rating. This is a really nice and sweet romantic read. But I did think that the story would have been better if it were longer. There is so much potential to The Wedding Switch.  And I would have liked more in the romance department between Abby and Hunter, bu not the instant love, it made the ending of the book feel rushed.
