#Review: An Unexpected Wedding, by @SusanHatler

An Unexpected WeddingTitle: An Unexpected Wedding (Treasured Dreams #5)
Author: Susan Hatler
Rating: 4/5 stars

AN UNEXPECTED WEDDING is a super short and sweet contemporary romance short story (14 pages, 3600 words).

Instead of being an excited bride-to-be, Holly’s frazzled beyond belief as she tries to plan her wedding. Her fiancé, Dave, says whatever she wants works for him, but she can’t get her mom and soon-to-be mother-in-law to so much as agree on a date.

The worst part is that her dad passed away four years ago, and she’s heartbroken he won’t be walking her down the aisle.

Holly begins to accept the wedding is doomed, but then an unexpected surprise reminds her why she’s getting married in the first place.” (description from Goodreads)

Story number five of Susan Hatler’s Treasured Dreams series was released, and I devoured it like all the rest. That’s how much I keep enjoying this series. Yes, each story is on the short side, but I still have a hard time not powering through, enjoying every word, compared to how I read some stories of a similar length.

Hatler has a gift for putting so much story, emotion, and forward movement into small spaces. In An Unexpected Wedding, that’s exactly what the reader gets. The series may is coming to an end soon (there are two more planned, as of now, stories in the coming months), but it’s Holly’s story isn’t losing steam. It’s still pushing forward. Her character is developing more and there’s even more to enjoy from her relationship with Dave.

As usual, I don’t want to discuss the plot itself in this review. I want to allow the reader to discover what unfolds on their own. Just know that as a long-time Hatler fan, and big fan of this series, this fifth story didn’t disappoint in the least. If anything, it raised expectations a bit. (No pressure, Susan.)

  1. Hey Rob. I’m so glad you enjoyed Holly’s newest story. Yay!! One of the challenging things about writing a short story is that EVERY word counts since I’m limited on how many I can use to tell her story and still keep it short and sweet. I’m working on revisions for An Unexpected Joy and can’t wait to share Holly’s latest adventure with you and your readers on the 12th of January. Until then, happy reading!! 🙂
