Reading Challenge for 2024

Mariella Jacob was one of the world’s premier bridal designers, but one viral PR disaster later, she’s trying to get her torpedoed career back on track in small-town Magnolia, North Carolina. With a secondhand store and a new business venture helping her friends turn the Wildflower Inn into a wedding venue, Mariella is finally putting at least one mistake behind her. Until that mistake—in the glowering, handsome form of Alex Ralsten—moves to Magnolia too.

Mariella ruined Alex’s wedding by announcing that his starlet bride-to-be was sleeping with Mariella’s fiancé. While he’s furious when they’re forced to work together, there’s no denying Mariella is hardworking, talented…and gorgeous. In fact, though Alex keeps reminding himself that they’re enemies, something deeper is growing…daring them to admit that a rocky past might lead to something unexpectedly wonderful.
I've been loving the series by Major and have to say I couldn't wait for Wedding Season. The whole idea of her ruining not only her business but someone else's wedding intrigued me. I really liked to have a female character that's a mess and has to repair her job. Don't get me wrong what was done to her was unfair and she lost everything because of it even though she wasn't the one who went behind her back to do something wrong. 

Mariella has worked really hard to become the person she wants to be. She's living a quiet life. That perfect life is now in jeopardy with the one man in the world that hates her more than she even hates herself. 

When Alex comes to town her really treats Mariella badly. I know that what she did truly embarrassed him, but she also saved him a life of misery. Plus, she might have acted out badly and handled it all wrong, but she wasn't the one doing the bad thing as it kind of pissed me off that he refused as first to recognize that. 

I was easier to blame someone else for what was his own failings. 

You'll enjoy watching these two works out their past and realize how much they care for each other and how perfect they are together. The road for them isn't easy and it takes a bit for Alex to admit to himself that Mariella might have opened the can of worms but didn't cause it and shouldn't be blamed. By the time you finish the story you'll be so happy for Mariella. She really did deserve a happy ending.
