My Thoughts

When I saw that McGuire was coming out with a novella featuring Travis and Abby’s wedding, I was SUPER excited. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it so that I could devour it and I really enjoyed jumping back into the world of Travis and Abby.

A Beautiful Wedding starts off with Abby and Travis in his room after the fire and her thinking about some things that lead to her proposal. Honestly, I was a little surprised and disappointed with what was going through Abby’s head when she decided to ask Travis to marry her. When I was reading this scene in Beautiful Disaster I just assumed that Abby realized just how fragile and short life was and that was what brought about her proposing to Travis, but boy was I wrong.
That was really my biggest let down with this book, everything else I really enjoyed. I don’t know if I can describe why I felt the way I did during this part without giving anything away and since I’m not a big fan of spoilers, I will just say that I was expecting something different when it came to Abby’s reasoning.
I know this review probably seems like I didn’t like this novella at all, but that’s not the case. In fact I really enjoyed it and I actually flew through it, and there were a ton, was quite a few may have been a couple of instances where I cried my eyes out *cough the letter cough* so if you enjoyed the other books in this series, I would definitely recommend for you to pick this novella up.
