Thirty-Four Going on Bride
(Spinster Series Book 3)
by Becky Monson
Thirty-Four Going on Bride is the third and final book in the Spinster Series by Becky Monson. Also available: Thirty-Two Going on Spinster (read my blog post) and Thirty-Three Going on Girlfriend (read my blog post).
For another book by this author, please check out my blog post on Speak Now: or Forever Hold Your Peace.
Julia Dorning is about to lose it. Between her over-the-top wedding that her sister, Anna, took upon herself to create, and the under-staffed popular bakery that she runs, she can barely find time to breathe.
All Julia ever wanted was a quaint wedding on the beach with family and friends. But now Julia has to contend with not only her sister's plans, but those of her future mother-in-law, as well. Not wanting to step on anyone's toes, especially her mother-in-law's, Julia just goes along with it.
She can only take so much, though, and when her newest employee, Kate, makes things harder at the bakery, Julia has to find a way to simplify her life.
Can she do it or will she end up a basket case? Find out how she does it in this hilarious conclusion to the Spinster Series!
"Pick it up, Julia! You can do this!"
I'm in the seventh circle of hell.
"Come on! Let's move faster!" My sister Anna yells over the construction that we're currently passing. As expected, we get a few whoops and whistles tossed at us from the workers. Pity flattery, I'm sure. Well, maybe not for Anna, but certainly for me. There's absolutely nothing attractive about me right now.
To start, I don't know if I've ever sweated this hard in my life. I look like I've taken a shower fully clothed. I'm sticky and perspiring, and it's not even that hot outside. It's a typical day near the end of May in Denver, Colorado. How did I let Anna convince me to do this? Oh that's right, there was no convincing. She forced me. "It'll be good for you," she had said, lying through her devil teeth.
At this point I don't know if my lungs will ever be the same. They actually ache with pain. And then there's the ache in my calves, and really every other part of my body. Whoever thought of running as an extracurricular activity should be shot. A form of torture, yes. Exercise? I'd rather get a tooth pulled without Novocain.
