Book Review of
The Wedding Veil
The Wedding Veil book by Kristy Woodson Harvey is another book that I would consider a beach read. I wanted to love this book, but in the end, I had really mixed thoughts.
This book as been all over social media this summer. I had never read a book by Kristin Woodson Harvey. I love watching the Friends and Fiction show that she is part of, so when this ebook was on sale I instantly bought it.
This made for a great plane read for me, but I didn’t love this one. It was so unrealistic. I did enjoy the Vanderbilt storyline that was set in the early 1900s, but I could have done without the ghosts and numerology and mysticism that was added in.
The modern-day storyline is what I thought was very unrealistic. A woman, who dropped out of architecture school, ran away from her wedding after finding out the groom cheated on her.
She then goes on her honeymoon alone, where she just happens to sit by a famous architect who is cute and headed to the same vacation destination that she is. They then have a romantic few days and fall in love. They go their separate ways and eventually find their way back to each other.
The third storyline involves the grandma of the modern day character. That storyline was fairly realistic, but just didn’t always seem to fit into the storyline.
I honestly wouldn’t have finished this one if I wouldn’t had been reading it on the plane. It made for a mindless plane read, but I am not sure I would recommend it. If you have read it I would love to hear your thoughts.
