Save The Date (Dating Series Book 1)
by Monica Murphy
Caroline Abbott loves her job—helping engaged couples pick out the perfect save the date cards and invitations for their dream wedding. Working at Noteworthy means she has to deal with the occasional bridezilla, but Caroline’s always up for the challenge.
Until one particular bridezilla walks into the stationery store who’s fiancé happens to be the boy Caroline shared her first kiss with. Alexander Wilder is all grown up now, helping run his family’s successful luxury hotel chain, and is somehow even better looking than she remembers.
When Caroline just happens to catch Alex’s fiancée half naked with another man well, of course she has to tell Alex. Of course, he breaks off his engagement.
And of course, the ex-bridezilla has gone completely bonkers.
At least Caroline has her friends to save her from crazy ex-fiancées. But she also has the sudden interest of…Alex? Caroline knows they share a connection, but is he on the rebound? Or after seeing her all these years later, does he really want something more?

So, I finished Save the Date as soon as I got the ARC delivered. Caroline Abbott is a joy, but Alexander Wilder… wow, book boyfriend material here!
Monica Murphy is one author I read without checking the blurb, so I did not know what I was getting myself into. I am really happy that this really turned into an enjoyable read for me.
Caroline works at a Cards stationary, where she meets people ordering cards for any type of announcements. She is a bride whisperer, but that turns out bad when she meets Alex, her brother’s best friend from middle school.
I am not into cheating books, so I did not know how this will turn out since Alex was engaged at the time they reconnected, but he soon finds out that his fiancée is actually cheating on him.
Rekindling old feelings, while visiting Paris how business? Sign me up for more, because this book is the first of the Dating Series. I foresee Caroline’s brother being next, since he’s coming back to his hometown.
