I'm going to miss the Salo family since Everything But a Wedding finishes Holly Jacobs' trilogy about the family with roots in Hungary, and a business in Erie, Pennsylvania. If you enjoy light, fun romances, try this series, Everything But a Groom, Everything But a Bride, and, the concluding book, Everything But a Wedding.
Vancy Balshade, the matriarch of the Salo family, cursed Bela Salo's family when he failed to show up for their wedding. By the time he showed up late, due to an accident, she had relented, and said she hoped no one in his family had a big beautiful wedding, until the day they realized the wedding wasn't as important as the marriage. However, Vancy has lived with her curse her whole life, watching her children, and then grandchildren, marry, but never in that big, beautiful ceremony.
Her granddaughter, Dori Salo, is her last hope to break the family curse. But, Dori isn't a girly girl, and her heart has been broken before. If she falls for someone, he better be honest with her. So, Bill Hastings doesn't stand a chance with Dori. He's an architect, pretending to be an interior designer because his pregnant cousin begs him to stand in for her when she bids on a job for one of Dori's construction projects. The more Bill gets to know Dori, the more uncomfortable he is with his role as Carter Hastings the fourth.
One way or another, Holly Jacobs must settle the problem of the family curse, since she's ending the series with the romance, Everything But a Wedding. Let's just say, it's a romance. There must be a happy ending. And, Holly Jacobs writes very satisfying romances. Everything But a Wedding won't let down the reader. It's another treat from Jacobs.
