The Best Laid Wedding Plans by Lynnette Austin

With love in their hearts and crafting the perfect wedding on their minds, the possibilities are endless for the ladies of Lynnette Austin's new Magnolia Brides series.


Jenni Beth Beaumont left her broken heart behind when she took her dream job in Savannah. But after her brother's death, Jenni Beth returns home to help mend her parents' hearts as well as restore their beautiful but crumbling antebellum mansion. New dreams take shape as Jenni Beth sets to work replacing floors and fixing pipes to convert the family homestead into the perfect wedding destination. However, some folks in their small Southern town are determined to see her fail.

Cole Bryson was once the love of Jenni Beth's life, but the charming architectural salvager has plans of his own for the Beaumont family home. As the two butt heads, old turmoil is brought to the surface and Cole and Jenni Beth will have to work through some painful memories and tough realities before they can set their pasts aside and have a second chance at their own happily ever after.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This was a nice, easy-going read for me. I quickly found myself immersed in the story. The characters were interesting and the dynamics between them well written to catch the reader's emotion. I liked that the author kept the depth of emotion with the romance, friendships, and families in the book while easily expressing their joy, grief, and love. Jenni Beth and Cole's romance was definitely rocky, but amusing and entertaining to see unfold. I really liked the other characters as well. Especially Cole's best friend.

I did find that Cole was slightly misrepresented in the beginning of the book. I thought he was a "rogue" character meant to be disliked, but as I read, it quickly became obvious that it was the opposite. While the story isn't a complex one, I found it to be a good book overall and I look forward to the next one.

I would recommend this to any romance fan looking for something nice and easy to read.

The luxury of staying home when the weather turns nasty, of working in PJs and bare feet, and the fact that daydreaming is not only permissible but encouraged, are a few of the reasons middle school teacher Lynnette Austin gave up the classroom to write full-time. Lynnette grew up in Pennsylvania’s Alleghany Mountains, moved to Upstate New York, then to the Rockies in Wyoming. Presently she and her husband divide their time between Southwest Florida’s beaches and Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. A finalist in RWA’s Golden Heart Contest, PASIC’s Book of Your Heart Contest, and Georgia Romance Writers’ Maggie Contest, she’s published five books as Lynnette Hallberg. She’s currently writing as Lynnette Austin. Having grown up in a small town, that’s where her heart takes her—to those quirky small towns where everybody knows everybody...and all their business, for better or worse.
