"Desert Wedding" by Penny Kim Book Review

Desert WeddingDesert Wedding by Penny Kim
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The idea behind this book is truly clever.  I love the fact that each chapter begins with wedding advice and/or a special quote relating to weddings.  And the book itself is quite reminiscent of a wedding plan book.  All these things are definitely positive.  In addition to this, there are a few surprises that keep the story moving along.  If you are in a "wedding mood," you may find this book quite fascinating.

But I have to say that this book did not resonate with me like I wished it would have.  I found the characters more two-dimensional than three-dimensional.  I struggled to connect with them.  And while I am not marking the book down in the area of morality, I would have preferred less sex talk (it is very adult in nature), and the profanity did grow tiring.  Both of these things did rob me of some enjoyment I would have otherwise enjoyed.

As to the writing style, it was fairly well-written.  The story was nice and light.  I am sure that the romance of the novel seemed a bit sappy for me, so it just wasn't for me.  However, if you are looking for an easy read that is written in a unique style, this may be what you are looking for!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
