Really enjoyed this book. Well-written.

A story about a wedding-cake boutique owner who's about to learn that in love and life, there's no such thing as a dress rehearsal.

I like this author a lot! A good story of a wedding cake designer - she gave up baking long ago - who holds off on so much for "happily ever after". Good friends & subplots.

This was an easy read. But at certain points I felt it dragged a bit.

A cute little read. With only 250 pages, this book was one of the shortest I have read in a while. I was absolutely bummed when I turned the last page. I didn't feel like the story was complete when it ended. I would have loved another 20 pages to make me feel like I was leaving the characters in a good spot. I don't always feel this way - I just wanted to make sure these three ladies were completely happy when I left them! I have read a lot recently where the characters took turns telling their part of the story - it was nice to stay in one character's mind throughout the whole book. With three ladies as best friends at the center of the book, I appreciated it only hearing one voice in the book.

One other personal note - the title Dress Rehearsal. I kept finding myself not understanding why it was given to this story. There is one line where I could see it fitting the story, but I kept wanting to rename the book. I never found one that I fell in love with, but I was never sure if this title really matched with the storyline. This point did not ruin the story, but kept me wondering.
