More About the Author

Stephanie Bond was several years into a corporate computer programming career when an instructor in her night school MBA program remarked she had a flair for writing and encouraged her to submit one of her projects to academic journals. "But," Stephanie says, "all I could think was 'I wonder if I could write a romance novel?' "

She spent every spare moment the next couple of years writing and submitting manuscripts before selling her romantic comedy IRRESISTIBLE? to Harlequin books. After selling ten projects in two years, Stephanie walked away from her corporate career to write commercial fiction full time. To date, she's published over 70 romance and mystery projects with Random House, St. Martin's Press, HarperCollins, Mira Books, and more recently, under her own imprint.

Stephanie's independently published romantic comedy STOP THE WEDDING!, a Kindle bestseller in three languages, is currently in development at The Hallmark Channel for a 2-hour movie.

Stephanie lives in midtown Atlanta and is probably working on a story at this very moment.

I recently finished reading the Love Isn't Blind: A Sweet and Special Romances Collection and I found myself lingering in a quite romantic mood, so I decided to look for another book feeding this urge of mine.
I ended up with "Stop the wedding" and frankly, I'm not disappointed at all.
It's a story about Annabelle Coackley, a young attorney who finds out that her charming and little naïve widow mother has decided to get married again to a rather infamous aged star who has already six other marriages in his past with at least one of them to a lady half his age. It's only natural that Annabelle runs to the rescue of her mother. However the groom-to-be has a son who also runs to the rescue of his father, believing he has once again found a bride in love with his money and not his personality. When the two young saviors meet, things really get messy. Trying to prevent marriage between their parents find themselves falling in love with each other!
The story is rather common and yet the way Stephanie Bonds writes it, is unique. It's funny, romantic and quite entertaining. The characters are witty and vivid, charming and colorful and the plot flows unfettered and solid.
You will laugh, you will be amused and you will be touched.
But most of all you will enjoy every single word of it.
I love it.

Today's selection is light and fun, overall a romantic comedy. So, if you love watching these types of movies, you will love Stephanie Bond's new book Stop the Wedding. Let's meet the characters and what I thought of the book.

Character list:

Annabelle Coakley: Divorce Lawyer, and daughter of the bride.
Clay Castleberry: A Venture Capitalist and son of the groom
Martin Castleberry: the groom, some what a playboy, work on his 6th marriage
Belle Coakley: the Bride, widow
Michaela (aka Mike): friend and sounding board of Annabelle

My thoughts:

You have to view this as if you were watching this unfold on the screen (by the way would be HILARIOUS). With all romantic comedies you have your cast of characters and how they all work together. Annabelle and Clay actually have the same mission: to break their parents apart, but they don't realize they are on the same page. So, the story really focuses on those two trying to sabotage the relationship and call off the wedding. If you are a fan of romantic comedies you know that this never works, and you just have to watch how it all plays out.

In all romantic comedies you have the unlikely couple, which you can guess (at least I hope). If you remember the plot from My Best Friend's Wedding, some what similar to that plot except you have the kids trying to break the wedding. I have to say it's a lot of fun. Plus, you need the friend that says, "this is a bad idea." Do they listen to friend? No, but the friend is always there. Finally for a complete romantic comedy you need the moment where you worry if it will all workout or not (the nail bitting moment). If you are a sap like me, you will start crying at that moment.

I loved this novel of the adult children who conspired together to stop the wedding of her mom and his dad. Not always predictable, the story took some twists and turns until the reader is not only engaged by two love stories in one book, but cheering for the characters, all of whom have someone else's best interests at heart. Very sweet and funny, two adult children love their single parents very much and are looking out for them, yet keeping an open mind as the facts come to light. Well written with great dialogue that moves the plot along at a merry clip.

Lord knows I've been tough on Stephanie Bond in my reviews; both "Our Husband" and "Three Wishes" had promising settings and plots that didn't deliver. "Uben macht der Meister," as they say in German, and Bond's prolific writing has provided the practice needed to make her prose sharp, the story tight, and her characters 3-D. "Wedding" is a clever mix of at least two parallel stories (much better than just a single plot line that has often plodded along in her previous books). As other reviewers have mentioned, there is a mother-daughter dynamic, a father-son dynamic, and then the relationships between the two "grown ups" and a budding love/hate-fest between the two children. It makes for a lot of ripe possibilities that Bond leverages well. The story flows smoothly, with fast moving sentences and nicely described settings. It's madcap, escapism, chic-lit fun. Enjoy if you carve out a few hours for yourself over the holidays.

I was very disappointed in this book. This author needs to get her history straight. She says her mother is in her early 50's, yet makes her sound like she is in her 80's! If this book was written in this decade, why would a 50 year old woman listen to "Big Band" music to relive her youth? Unless of course you call "big bands" Led Zepplin, or The Stones! The mother's youth would have been in the 1970's, not the 1940's. She also said the mother and father danced to an old receiver on top of the fridge. The history in this book was all wrong. I thought an author was suppose to research this type of stuff before writing a book. I also didn't think it was a comedy at all. I doubt I will ever read anything by this author again.
