Where Dreams Come True
You Say It First by Susan Mallery is a delightful fun filled contemporary novel that focuses on love and weddings.
Love is a complicated affair. There are some awkward family dynamics. “She’d been taught that love… had to be earned.” Love should be unconditional in a family but sometimes we try and try but never seem to be good enough. It may not be our ‘fault’ but the ‘fault’ of the person withholding the love due to their background.It is a heavy burden to carry.
There is the question of belonging. Finding out that you are not who you thought you were produces tension within a family.
Love may hurt. Love may fail but surely true love is a risk worth taking?
Every girl has a dream as to what would make the perfect wedding. Within the story, a wedding planner tries to make the perfect day. “You make memories happen.”
We all have dreams and passions. We need to live out our own dreams and not try to fit into the mould others try to impose on us.
You Say It First was a really fun light hearted read that will make your heart sing and leave you smiling.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
A word of caution – there was a bedroom scene with far too much detail for my liking so I just skipped over those pages. It did not detract from my overall enjoyment of the novel.
