Wedding Tiers & For Better, For Worse

So, anyway last night as a result of various cold meds, I woke up at midnight and couldn’t go back to sleep. So, I read Wedding Tiers by Trisha Ashley and For Better, For Worse by Carole Mathews.

I really like Trisha Ashley books in general and this was no exception. I loved the small village setting. The characters were well designed and I liked how the love triangle played out. I found the reactions of their friends to ┬áJosie and Ben’s breakup was very true to life. Charming book with a likable main character, Josie, a woman who built a life with her teen sweetheart and then had to rebuild it without him.

The second book I read in my insomnia based reading session was For Better, For Worse by Carole Matthews.

Quite enjoyable chick lit. Fast read. The premise of an about to be divorced woman going to be in a wedding is very promising. The writing was fast paced and the story was told from multiple view points which helped to move it along. I have to say I didn’t really like the Jack-Martha-Glen story line, but I think that is my personal issue. I don’t tend to care for the whole “infidelity just happens, everything is okay” kind of stories. I did find Josie and Matt’s story fun to read and well done with all the near misses and the final resolution.

It was sort of funny that in both of the books, the main character’s name was Josie, but that was just by chance not design. Both were fun, romance reads, but if I had to pick one over the other I would definitely go with Wedding Tiers. I just found Trisha Ashley’s Josie more of a person I could relate to and I thought all the story lines in the book were well done
