An Event to Remember…or Forget

22441486Sienna Harris is a girl with a plan. Her days of slaving away at Carrieโ€™s Classic Events and More are numbered as she is on the brink of launching her own event planning company. Her relationship with Luke Price is headed in the right direction and they are approaching their one-year mark. The future is looking bright and she knows that life could not get any better . . . That is until her perfectly planned world is thrown upside down by the unexpected arrival of someone from Lukeโ€™s past.

She receives the shock of her life on the night of the biggest event of her career. Sienna will now have to pull it all together without a list or a plan. The question is, can she do it?

When you have a request from an author on goodreads you can’t help but check out their books and I’m so glad I did. Melissa Bladwin’s debut book, An Event to Remember…or Forget, was adorably charming. It’s the perfect escape into a new world in sunny California. The beginning was a bit difficult to get into but once I did I was completely lost in the story and couldn’t put it down.

The mix of humour and sarcasm makes for a perfectly light and fun read. There’s a number of love and hate characters throughout and a few love to hate, which made it a very realistic view of life, it’s never what we seen and people are all extremely different. I loved Sienna’s friends because they were the perfect comparison to her and all their talk of cookies and baking made me itching to get in the kitchen and make some goodies of my own.

But really this book has to excited and motivated to plan a huge event and mingle in fancy dresses and sliver linens. If you’re looking for an escape from the world then jump into sunny California with Sienna and her friends for a light and enjoyable read. My only regret is that I wasn’t sitting on a beach with a cocktail whilst reading! Can’t wait to dive into the second book next!
