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.

I was a little apprehensive about picking up A Beautiful Wedding especially at it’s original eBook price. When I saw a Facebook feed from McGuire saying they had lowered it to around $3.00 I snagged a copy…I mean it’s Travis we are talking about here. The novella is a decent size coming in at around 160 pages and gives us a dual perspectives.

The story begins in the morning after the fire and explains how Abby ended up being Mrs. Maddox. I was worried there might be a lot of rehashing and nothing fresh or new. I shouldn’t have been worried at all! McGuire brought fresh. There were touching and swoon-worthy moments. She filled in pieces of their story giving it more depth. A Beautiful Wedding revealed Abby’s strength all while showing her fears and love for Travis. Travis is such a romantic.  He loves with everything he has. *swoons*  A few moments regarding his mother made me tear up. Fans will have plenty of opportunity to melt. McGuire succeeded in making me fall for him all over again.

A Beautiful Wedding was heartfelt, romantic and swoon-worthy. Fans of the Beautiful series will not be disappointed.

    I loved this little novella! Great Review Kim! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Travis made me swoon too, from the depth of his love for abby, and I teared up on the parts about his mother. Merry Christmas 🙂

    I am glad that the price came down, even though $3 is a bit for a typical e-book novella nowadays. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed it. 🙂

    • kimbacaffeinate

      At least this is 160 pages..unlike Fracture Me which was 64 pages…LOL

    Great review — I am glad to hear you liked this novella! I’ve been thinking of buying it for my best friend for Xmas; I shared Beautiful Disaster with her earlier this year and she LOVED it, so I am confident she will enjoy this peak into the post-HEA! 🙂

    Enjoy!
    TBQ

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Ooo did she read Walking Disaster? That was my favorite of the series 🙂

      • The_Book_Queen

        Yes! She loved it, too; I loaned her my copies of both, she read them and quickly bought her own copies! I haven’t read Walking yet, but she keeps pushing me to bump it up my TBR pile!

    3.00 ouch that is a bit steep for a novella. Not sure I ever seen one cost so much ;/ but I am glad that you felt it was worth it! I have not met Travis yet but I bought the first book one sale a few months ago, so hopefully.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Ha it was like 9.99 At least it is 160 pages ..a lot of them are under 100 for the same price.

    I have a review coming soon for this one too and I loved it every bit as much as you did. I miss Travis and Abby so this was a wonderful surprise I wasn’t expecting.

  8. Andrea

    I was a little hesitant too, Kim, but really enjoyed this. The whole bit with Travis’s mom definitely brought tears to my eyes.
    Great review!

  9. Georgie

    I’ve been so worried about picking this up. I loved A Beautiful Disaster (and yet to read my copy of Walking disaster) but i’m been “um”ing and “ah”ing over to read then or not, ahh.

    You know what…okay just bought it!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Woot enjoy! Georgie I actually like Walking better than Beautiful. Happy reading 🙂

    I loved this series so I’m definitely interested. My few issues with the series involved Abby’s resistance but if A Beautiful Wedding is super cute and swoon-worthy, I definitely want to read it. I think I might read this one for a read-a-thon some time in the future since it’s pretty short. 😀

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Abby shows us a different side, and yes this would be perfect for a read-a-thon 🙂
