One Sweet Day (Hope Fall's #4.5) by Melanie Shawn

One Sweet Day
One Sweet Day: A Hope Falls Novella

Synopsis:

The honor of your presence is requested at the wedding of Amanda Jacobs and Justin Barnes.

Catch up with the "Fabulous Four" as all the girls come together to celebrate Amanda & Justin's big day!

Review:

After reading a recent Hope Fall's series book I noticed that I hadn't read One Sweet Day yet. I really enjoyed Amanda's story, and the rest of the Fabulous Four, so I was excited to see Amanda get married. Unfortunately this novella just didn't work for me.

This is the story of Amanda and Justin's wedding. All the girls come in for the event and I thought it would be fun to catch up with them all again. The writing in this was just not that good. Really I was reading it thinking did I really like those other books? Were they really better than this was? The girls, their conversations and interactions, were all so stiff and almost robotic. It did not read like a couple of friends talking. It was too stilted for that.

After a while I did go back and read part of Amanda's story again to see if it was the same stiff conversations. It wasn't. In her story it did read like a bunch of friends who hadn't seen each other in a while were just catching up. I'm not sure why this novella was so different writing wise, but it didn't work for me. As much as I wanted to be enjoying the story I just couldn't. The wedding itself was nice, but getting there didn't wasn't much fun to read.
