The Christmas Wedding is my first James Patterson book and I'm happy to say I enjoyed it. It's definitely a story to get you in the Christmas mood with family, snow, weddings and of course love! Although it's a full-length novel this reads like a novella. Each of Gaby's children are introduced and each have situations and struggles that they face that somehow get resolved right at Christmas so there's not much room for development. The romantic element is a little unbelievable--Gaby strings along three potential grooms and they don't seem to mind or question her, hence the three star review. I definitely kept wondering who the groom was going to be and by the end I was glad she chose who she did. However Patterson's ability to weave a story that's centered around true-to-life characters is, I'm sure, one of the reasons why he's a bestselling romance (and suspense!) author.

Be warned, there is strong language throughout but The Christmas Wedding is still a pleasant read just in time for the holidays!

I love books like this! The chapters are short which makes reading it such a pleasure. A fun concept that kind of reminds me of the book that Nicholas Sparks wrote - I think it was called "The Wedding". I loved that book!

I did not enjoy listening to this book. "Gabby" (even her kids call her this name)is getting married , but there is a secret. Who will she marry? Potential grooms abound and even her kids who each have their own drama do not know . Heck the groom doesn't know and won't know until the wedding day . I will sum up : cliched characters, unbelievable situations and boring people. The reading in the audio version is uneven as the speaker attempts to give every character a different voice. Just did not work for me.

Disappointing. Full of cliches. The main character and her Christmas mystery was the most annoying woman I've met in a book. I seriously doubt Patterson wrote any of this drivel.

A very fun book with a bit of romance and suspense. What made the book truly great was getting to know the entire family - the good and the bad, the happy and the sad. A lot happened in this little book, but it read like a much larger novel with a very satisfying finish.

I love anything by James Patterson so I was happy to find this on the available list. However, it's clear that this is not his story...I'm not sure what he had to do with it at all. It's the tale of a women who invites her family to her wedding but no one---not even her suitors---knows who she's going to marry. The author keeps this detail a secret until the very last second, hoping to maintain mystery and intrigue. All in all, it's a fun story but don't expect to be memorably moved. It is what it is!
