Not the Only One: Finding Companionship in Travel Memoirs by Fiona Ellis

As for our personal reading, we are both excited to dive into Beth Kendrick’s The Week Before The Wedding. Beth is one of our favorite authors, and we know we’re in for a treat with this one. It’s the week before Emily McKellips’ wedding, and all of her dreams are about to come true: a stellar career, a gorgeous house, and a surgeon fiancé any woman would die for. But then Ryan, Emily’s first husband from a disastrous starter marriage, shows up. Emily is surprised to discover new sides to both her ex and her fiancé. She thought she had life and love all figured out, but the next seven days might change her mind—and her heart. This is one wedding we can’t wait to attend!
