The New York Times bestselling romantic comedy series continues…

Snowbound. Sounds so romantic, with visions of cuddling before a roaring fire, hot chocolate spiked with brandy, and a secret elopement.

Wait. What?
My fiancé’s father won’t stop trying to turn our pending wedding into a three-ring media circus so he can get free publicity for his family’s Fortune 500 company. My mother has decided she’s done with All Things Wedding and asks her teacup Chihuahua for mother-of-the-bride advice.
They’ve all gone certifiably mad.
Then the stress from the wedding puts my mother in the hospital, I scream at my future father-in-law in front of a camera crew and the video goes viral, and the romantic wedding that started with Andrew’s grand Pride and Prejudice proposal looks less like Jane Austen and more like Dostoyevsky.
So what do you do when you’re a fixer and you can’t fix something?
You give up on it.
Not on Andrew, silly.

The wedding.Shopping for a CEO’s Wife is the 12th book in Julia Kent’s New York Times bestselling Shopping series. As Shannon and Declan enjoy their newlywed bliss, Andrew’s father wants to exploit Amanda and Andrew’s nuptials, much to Amanda’s chagrin. Can she learn to stand up to her future father-in-law and fight for what’s right? But the real question is: will Spritzy the teacup Chihuahua end up being a flower girl?

Propeller Rating:  3 of 4 Propellers


I received a free copy for an honest review.  It took me about 3 hours to read so it was quick.  I only gave it 3 of 4 propellers for 2 reasons.  The first one being, I really wish I’d been told to read some of the other books in the series.  There were way too many references to things that happened and people that only appeared in other books in the “Shopping” series to leave a lot of holes and what I am assuming funny moments in this one.  The other side is there was some hilarity, but then it would be followed up with ramblings of romantic and deep thoughts from characters reflecting on the previous scene or an interruption in the scene.

Don’t get me wrong, I did like the characters in the book and a few scenes were great.  They got the Happily Ever After, which I’m always a fan of, and there was no cliff hanger.  But I think I would have enjoyed this  a lot more if I’d read the earlier books and then I’d have been privy to the between friends references she makes.  So for future readers, pick up a few of the other novels and read those, then definitely dive into this one.

I thought I would start listing my favorite and least favorite scene for other readers just to see if anyone agrees with me.  So here goes.  My favorite scene is the short throw of her mother’s dog by the paparazzi and the less than elegant catch Andrew makes.  Least favorite the “Tugger” scene, if you read the book, you’ll understand.  Oh and by the way this is not for young adults.  This is forsure an adults only, scenes of nudity and sex involved in this one.  And one more plug for more of her work;  pick Shopping for a CEO book 1 in the series to start off on the right foot.
