One Week to the Wedding by Olivia Miles *Stephanie’s Review*


I couldn’t resist a small town romance. I needed a romance after quite a few thrillers. One Week to the Wedding by Olivia Miles was a good break. It was also blurbed for fans of Kristan Higgins so that got my attention. I didn’t find her quite as humorous as Higgins but Miles still gave me an excellent story that left me a little teary eyed.

I really enjoyed watching this story unfold. Kate reminded me a lot of myself in that we both have crazy organized lists and strive to be a perfectionist. To be honest I wasn’t sure how Miles was going to pull off a reconciliation between Kate and Charlotte. Kate was working on Elizabeth and William’s wedding but the focus of the story stayed on Kate working through her broken engagement. Not even the romance detracted much from the overall story line. The ending felt a bit rushed and that stopped this from being a full 5 star read.

I liked Kate quite a bit and thought she was doing a great job working through a traumatic experience. I really wanted to hate Charlotte but from the first chapter told in her point of view, I liked her, flaws and all. Alec and Kate were perfect for each other. I loved watching Alec develop and face emotions better left alone (in his opinion). I kind of felt Elizabeth wasn’t very understanding of Alec’s position. I never got a clear impression if this was because William didn’t inform her of the realities or William wasn’t aware of the impact his leaving would have. The characters of Misty Point were a lot of fun to spend time with. I particularity liked Kate’s cousin Bree. I hope to see more books set in Misty Point.

I am burning to know if Kate and Charlotte’s names were a nod to the royal family! I enjoyed my time in Misty Point and would go back again. I’d like to check in on Alec and Kate and all their family and friends. A small North Eastern coastal town provides such a great setting.
