Summary

After her divorce, Charlene Dugan vowed never to get married again - a promise she has kept for twenty-five years. Until the fateful day she finds herself uttering the well-known phrase - "Let's get married!" Almost immediately, Charlene's seemingly perfect life begins unraveling at the seams. Daughter Stephanie's own relationship is about to disintegrate, and she might be just a teensy-weensy bit jealous of her mom. And Charlene seems to be spending more time with her ex-husband than with her fiancé, Dennis. What's more confusing is that Dennis doesn't seem to mind too much. In fact, he sees the wedding consultant more often than Charlene does. The wedding party is now officially out of control. They're calling for rain and the bride has cold feet. This isn't exactly what Charlene had in mind. But maybe it's not too late to finally decide on who and what she really wants.

Laughed aloud, but lots of insight too

Therese Plummer is an excellent narrator, as always. She has a wide variety of voices, great with both male and female characters. Very straightforward and natural.

Lots of characters, and a very human set of events. Enjoyed the humourous moments, as well as those where characters came to greater self-awareness. Highly recommend this great story. I thought it was one of Robyn Carr's best.

Cheaters and Whiners

While I usually enjoy Ms. Carr's novels, I found The Wedding Party disappointing, particularly since most of the main characters were over 40. I also don't like when the main characters cheat on their significant others, rather than break off their relationships before hopping in bed with other people. As someone questioned: if you will cheat with me, I guess I should wonder if one day you will cheat on me?

Easy read

Pretty good, fast pace book. Not a turn pager, I can't wait to read, book... But enjoyed listening to it while doing something else. Easy to follow

So disappointed

I have read so many of Robyn Carr’s books but was VERY disappointed in this story. There was very little that was enjoyable. The one positive thing was that Therese Plummer narrated this story...the one redeeming value of this entire production!!

Good story

This was an good story and I enjoyed all the different story lines. It makes the story so much more interesting when it doesn’t revolve around just 2 or even 4 characters. In this story we had 10, I believe. And I like that all the characters had some good insights and grew. The main storyline, involving Charlene was the biggest disappointment. Yes, she did finally get some insight and did a little developing, and yes strong women are often just like her, but what a self centered rather rude and oblivious lead character-rather hard to like! But there were several other better characters to root for. An enjoyable read (or listen!) but not riveting. A very solid 4 stars.

Story line

Early on in the book is was almost hard to follow. I struggled to stay interested, but about half way the story line grabbed my attention finally and kept me interested. I have listened to another of Robyn's books and throughly enjoyed them. This one I would have to say is not one of my favorites.

Boring

I have listened to the Virgin River series twice, but couldn't get through 3 chapters. This book was so boring.
