VBT: Review: When Girlfriends Chase Dreams

BLURB: A novel about chasing dreams, for better or worse, and living your love story.

Claire Linley is finally a bride! After nearly ten years with her college freshman sweetheart, Claire is going to become Mrs. Conner Whitley. She's got her bridal magazines, is the biggest Martha Stewart fan, and subscribes to all the major wedding blogs. She's been dreaming of this moment for years! How could planning her dream wedding be anything but perfect?

The easy-going and bubbly type, Claire will obviously have a blast planning, and with her fantastic group of girlfriends-made-bridesmaids she just can't go wrong. Whether it's wedding gown shopping, makeup trials, or cake-tasting, Claire's friends are there in a pinch.

But how big does the pinch get? All Claire wants to do is get married, but at every turn something seems to go awry and she's starting to lose it. How is a girl supposed to remain cool and collected when the pricey dream wedding planner isn't turning out to be so dreamy? When DIY projects and the perfect venue are going up in smoke? How is Claire supposed to marry Conner when the special day that's supposed to join them together, forever, is slowly tearing them apart?

This is the charming story about how sometimes the biggest events in life are defined by the smallest acts of kindness and love. It's a love story about dreaming large, loving deeply, and, in the end, truly having the happiest day of your life, no matter what happens (or doesn't). About what happens when girlfriends chase dreams.


Review: I have been having a blast following this series. I've laughed, cried, yelled, felt the emotions of the characters and have been escaping the world with these fabulous stories.  When Girlfriends Chase Dreams is another one to add to the "keep me smiling" pile!

Weddings are supposed to be this magical happy day. There's a lot of emotions, tears, smiling and memories.   Behind the scenes, during the time it takes to PLAN the wedding is a completely different story.  Well, for Claire, she just wants her dream. No harm done, right?  Umm...yeah, things aren't going quite as well as planned. A day that's going to mark forever could come with a lot of frustration and heartache.

It's one thing after another, and i found myself feeling so much throughout this book.  It's light, but full of moments that bring out feelings.  I'm a fan of Ms. Page's work and will always look for new releases from this fab author!
