This is the story about three sisters Jane, Pearl, and Mari who have taken over the wedding business that they have inherited from their family. This book is marketed as a romcom but it focused more on the relationship dynamics between the three sisters instead of the romance aspect.

I think my expectations were gearing up towards a romcom so this may have caused my rating to be a tad lower since Don't you just LOVE the cover of this book?! I think my expectations were gearing up towards a romcom so this may have caused my rating to be a tad lower since I was expecting more romance. I loved the cultural aspect of the sister's Filipino heritage and the wedding planning.
Also, the family dynamics was also very good but I was really wanting more romance. I feel like this was. This one wasn't really that special in my book but I think if you go into it with the mindset its' more of a family dynamic book than a romance you may enjoy it more :. Overall, thank you to Gallery Books and Netgalley for the arc in exchange for an honest review.

A pretty lighthearted family drama about three sisters who own a wedding planning business and discover love around the same time. The two main characters are Marisol and Pearl, the oldest and younger sisters respectively. As an aside and totally a joke, as I am a middle child but in typical fashion, the middle child was left out from having a POV.

If you love stories about weddings and family, definitely add this to your summer reading list! Jan 06, Kristy Harvey rated it it was amazing. Three sisters, one wedding planning business, and a lot of brides This charming, fun, and, at times, deeply poignant, trip down the aisle s is full of romance, family drama and unexpected twists. The de la Rosa women will captivate you from the very first paragraph! May 29, Taryn Pierson rated it it was ok Shelves: poc-author , release , fiction , romance , audio.
I feel a little misled by the blurb characterizing this as a rom-com--to me, it read more like a grind-out-your-issues family drama. It just didn't come off very light or funny, I guess? I listened to the audio version and the narrator had a very serious, weighty delivery, so maybe that was the issue. Also, I wasn't super invested in either of the two central romances--after what felt like hours and hours of listening to the two sisters fight, I didn't like either Mari or Pearl enough to root ve I feel a little misled by the blurb characterizing this as a rom-com--to me, it read more like a grind-out-your-issues family drama.
Also, I wasn't super invested in either of the two central romances--after what felt like hours and hours of listening to the two sisters fight, I didn't like either Mari or Pearl enough to root very hard for them to find love. Just not a fit for me--your mileage may vary, of course!
May 09, Amy rated it really liked it Shelves: netgalley. This follows the de la Rosa sisters right after they take over their parents wedding planning f 3. Pearl is the youngest and was my personal favorite, I felt bad for her as she struggled to prove herself to her sisters and gain more responsibility in their business.
Sisterly relationships are often rife with drama, so there was quite a bit of that here. There was also some light romance but at its heart this really a story about family relationships and the bonds between sisters. Feb 23, Susan Peterson rated it it was amazing.
First of all, I love reading books about sisters, and the relationship between the three sisters in this book, Mari, Jane and Pearl was so complicated and honest. Second of all, I loved the setting of Washington D. I also loved learning about the Filipino culture, something I was not familiar with. Lastly, the romantic elements felt organic and real and not easy All of those elements added up to an endearing, sometimes thorny story that kept me turning pages way past my bedtime!
May 20, Jess rated it liked it Shelves: all , new , romance , romance-contemporary , own-ebook. It was lovely to see so many different types of ceremonies and couples, etc on the page. The family business stuff was hard at times because I absolutely get the dynamic of stubborn siblings clashing and I wanted to knock heads together and obviously you cannot do that to fictional characters.
This was another book that made me very hungry, so you know, beware of that. The first thing that attracted me to this book was the title and the bright cover art! The summary of the book also sounded interesting. Right away one of the things that jumped out of this book was the concept of sisterhood. I loved how different the sisters are. While her story was perhaps a little more limited than the other sisters, I loved it all the same.
I was actually expecting this book to be more of a romantic comedy and it had elements of both romance and comedy but for me this was much more a novel about sisterhood and family than anything else, which actually worked just fine for me. This book definitely reminded me how hard family relationships can sometimes be, but in a light way rather than a book that was overly deep and heavy.
Rather I felt like it gently reminded me of things that were important in families with some humor and romance to break things up. I very much enjoyed reading this one as it brought out a lot to think about without being overly heavy.

I also found that this book was super fast reading. I was able to finish it in a matter of a couple of days but could easily have read it in one or two sittings. If you are looking for something to entertain you on a flight or the beach this summer then you definitely want to pick this one up!

Just call me Mari because she is me. Jan 13, Amy Reichert rated it it was amazing. Jun 04, Ari rated it really liked it. I was so excited to pick up her newest release and though I didn't have a clue what the book was about, I knew I was gonna enjoy whatever Marcelo was about to serve me and spoiler alert: I did! Marisol de la Rosa and her two sisters, Janelyn and Pearl, have recently taken over their parent's wedding shop to continue the family tradition of creating happily ever afters.
But working with family doesn't always go as smoothly as one would hope and working with your sisters, well Especially when not all of you see eye-to-eye but if the de la Rosa sisters want to save the family business from going under, they're gonna have to find a way to work together before everything falls apart.
I adore the concept of this story! Three sisters running a wedding shop together while trying not to murder one another and also trying to find themselves just spoke to me. Also, wedding shenanigans! Who doesn't love some good wedding shenanigans?! This story focus' on two sisters in particular: Marisol and Pearl.
These two have always butted head and now Pearl is trying to go off on her own and create her own wedding business. She wants to be heard and she feels like Marisol isn't listening to anything she has to say. Now, I was totally TeamPearl but at the same time, I understand why Marisol behaved the way that she did.
She was just being overprotective due to experiences in the past and she was also trying not to do anything that would cause further damage to the already struggling business. I enjoyed seeing these two work through their issues and find a way to fix things and realize that family always has your back, even when you're fighting. I will say that I wished Jane had also had a strong story line like her other two sisters did.
Jane plays mediator between Pearl and Marisol and she spends most of her time trying to keep the peace so her side story doesn't really start coming together until we're almost to the end of the book. I wish Marcelo had taken more time to develop Jane's plot line and I also wished we could've seen the outcome for her and her potential love interest.
Speaking of love interests, there is some romance sprinkled throughout this book and I totally shipped all the ships that did set sail by the end of this book! This made my romance loving heart so happy because even though the romances weren't the focus of this story, they did have some good swoony moments that left a smile on my face. Jun 29, Wendy Bunnell rated it it was amazing. This was so cute, I fell in love with the whole de la Rosa family. The sisters were so realistic and relatable. I might have gone crazy in that family, but they made it work.

I loved the behind the scenes look at operating a wedding business with the added drama of three sisters as equal owners on paper, but oldest sis Marisol is definitely in charge, ask anyone. Youngest sis Pearl bristles and aches to spread her wings. So much great introspection and growth. One thing that threw me off just a li This was so cute, I fell in love with the whole de la Rosa family. But she wasn't done there. Jay continued to fess up about the affair, but asked Ashley, "Whose fault is that?
Ashley began to push Jay out of her house. He left, but she called the police and told them there was an altercation and he was an illegal immigrant. But Jay kept insisting that she shouldn't have gone so extreme in calling the police and trying to have him deported. He said nobody knows what his life is like. And that's when he made a telling admission: He said she doesn't get to play God, he can go find somebody else and stay in the United States. Colt and Larissa Larissa went to meet with her lawyer and told him she thinks Colt lied about the events that took place between them that resulted in her second arrest.
She had her arraignment hearing but wouldn't tell Colt or Debbie how it went. Colt said he feels like it's all falling apart and he's losing his mind. Once I push that button, there's no undoing it. I'd rather be alone. With Elizabeth's family, Andrei's father had some wise words about Andrei's temper and inability to let things go.
