You know that Abby Abernathy unexpectedly became Mrs. Maddox. But what do you really know?

Why did Abby pop the question?
What secrets were shared before the ceremony?
Where did they spend their wedding night?
Who else knew about it . . . and didn’t tell?

Everything about Abby and Travis’s elopement was top-secret . . . until now. Fans of Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster will get all of their questions answered in this whirlwind tale of the wedding day (and night!)—and as with all good stories, this one will definitely have been worth the wait

My Thoughts:  Oh how I have missed Travis and Abby.  Beautiful Disaster is one of my all-time favorite books ever and Travis Maddox is one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends.  I just fell in love with him, and with his and Abby's story in Beautiful Disaster, and then enjoyed getting to see things from his point of view in Walking Disaster.  I was so excited to find out that Jamie McGuire was writing A Beautiful Wedding, and have anxiously been waiting to get my hands on it so I could read more of Travis and Abby's story.  A Beautiful Wedding takes place between the ending of the A Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster, and the awesome epilogue that was in Walking Disaster.  We all know they got married and got a glimpse into their lives a number of years down the road, but what happened at the wedding?  Well, hold on to your hats and get ready to find out everything you want to know about the how, why, what, and when regarding the wedding, the events that lead up to it, the reason behind the rush, the wedding night, and even a glimpse into their future.  One of the things I loved most about this novella was the relationship between Abby and Travis. In the previous novels Abby and Travis went through so much drama, pain, facing so many obstacles, the fighting, and separation before they finally got together, but in A Beautiful Wedding we get to see a more mature side of Abby and Travis and the solidity of their commitment as they experience the unselfishness that come with totally giving yourself to another person in love.  I think you will love this side of Travis and Abby.  Don't get me wrong they are still Travis and Abby, and Travis is still the Travis we have all come to know and love, just a more grown up version.  Travis has always rocked my world with his bad boy vibe, his hotness, his swagger, and his intensity, but in A Beautiful Wedding girls, Travis Maddox will make you SWOON big time.  I loved A Beautiful Wedding and the completeness it brought to this timeless love story.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
