The Fairy Tale Bride is the start of a series of connecting stories that surround the upcoming wedding of a local girl turned celebrity. This book, written by Scarlett Wilson, tells the story of Lisa Renee and the new doctor in town Adam Brady. Lisa runs the towns wedding shop and is recovering from the heartache of being a jilted bride and Adam has a secret of his own. The Fairy Tale Bride is a very short story and as such everything felt very rushed. The couple went on just a few dates and then they are declaring their undying love for each other. It just felt like so much had been skipped and information missing from the story. It was hard to connect with the characters because there was very little development of them. I’ve read other novelettes that felt like full stories and so I know that its possible and this one just never reached its mark.
Lisa and Adam were also two frustrating characters who were deliberately obtuse at times. There were also things that happened that just didn’t real for a small town. Not to mention all the cheezy, eye-roll inducing moments. The Fairy Tale Bride is a book that held promise but it just never lived up to it. The writing was ok but nothing spectacular and the only thing it really had going for it was that it was a quick read.
