When Maggie Taylor, a cake decorator, and Chad Robertson, a lawyer from Nashville Tennessee, meet at a wedding in Cornwall it’s not under the best circumstances.
They have both been assigned to ‘the reject table’, alongside a toxic collection of grumpy great aunts, bitter divorcees and stuffy organists.
Maggie has grown used to being the reject, although when Chad helps her out of a wedding cake disaster she begins to wonder whether the future could hold more for her.
But will Chad be strong enough to deal with the other problems in Maggie’s life? Because a ruined cake isn’t the only issue she has – not by a long shot.
Read on for my thoughts on The Wedding Reject Table. No true spoilers, promise.
What an absolutely delightful novella! Not every bride plans to have the “singles” or otherwise known as the “reject” table – those folks that come by themselves, the cranky old biddy, the sleazy female, the odd male or the grumpy old man — you know, the folks that no one really wants at their table. But hey, it’s the bride’s day and if she wants a “reject” table, she gets it. So American Chad Robertson is going to be heading to that table. Oh, he is far from a grumpy old man, but he is a distant relative who is there by family obligation and no one knows who the heck he is anyway. Maggie Taylor is actually part of the cake and catering professionals. She got her seat because she’s the bride’s best friend – and no one really expected her to be spending anytime seated anyway. Chad has already checked out the lovely Maggie and he definitely finds her to not be reject worthy – he intends to get to know this special lady better.
Chaos soon happens in the kitchen. And Chad will step in to not only help, but in many ways to save the day… all the while pouring on his famous Southern Charm on this English Lady he wants to spend time with. The final insult to the chaos is Maggie’s sister’s scream. It seems Ems’ betrothed decided to break off their engagement via text. Yeah, not classy at all. And, being the drama queen that she is, Ems collapses on the kitchen floor and needs to be carried home.
Chad will pursue Maggie, in spite of a few setbacks. And along the way brothers will reunite, sisters will clear up the past – and two very special people will fall in love.
The Wedding Reject Table is full of emotions. You will sniffle, giggle, laugh out loud, groan and be charmed. Opposites may attract, but soulmates know each other at first glance. This is one story that you will enjoy, no matter what kind of romance you usually read. I recommend this one for simply the feels and the emotions it brings out in us. It’s a delight and now I’m going to go find the first novel in this series.
