Perfect Weddings had all the elements of a romantic comedy with just enough to make you ponder. I was disheartened at first by Amy’s own wedding fiasco and felt so badly for her that it put me on the right track to want the best for our heroine.
Amy’s transformation to Amy Perfect, expert wedding planner, was glossed over in terms of the process it took to get her there but I didn’t really miss a beat in believing in her new persona. Somehow it seemed fitting that she took that rage, confusion and hurt and turned it into something positive for herself and for others. There are a slew of confusion and hilarious situations in the book, times when Amy needs to navigate bridal tempers and keep shows on the road. All of these were really funny and balanced with her situation with ex Greg’s wedding to the lovely Georgina to create the impression that she was actually managing her business while dealing with her own personal crisis- the juggling was real.
I wish she’d been able to confess to Georgina earlier- that would have made her life much less stressful but on the other hand without Georgina’s wedding Amy would not have met the crushing and yet dashing Ben. The novel would not have had such hopefulness without Ben so we needed Georgina, you see?
While the novel always has a slight tinge of the bittersweet to it there was also the balance of humour which made the pages turn quickly. On the whole the book made me laugh and kept me interested and I liked Renham’s writing immensely.
