Wedding of the Season: A Novel


Lauren Edmondson

FROM THE BOOK JACKET: A warm, whip-smart novel about two modern-day society families and the summer wedding that has all of Newport talking...

Despite its beauty, Newport is a place Cass Coventry would prefer to forget. But after an extended absence, she's back in her hometown to celebrate her sister's engagement--even if she's marrying into the family that famously stole the Gilded Age Coventry mansion out from under them a decade ago.

The moment Cass pulls up to the estate, she's in for one surprise after another. The bride-to-be is hiding a big secret. Her mother has royal-wedding aspirations. And, when the date is set for only three months away, a local gossip blog makes the two families its new favorite subject.

It's not long before Cass's weekend in town becomes a full summer of frenzied wedding planning and society drama--but also idyllic sails, starry nights, and a former love. As the grand affair arrives, along with new truths about her family, Cass must finally face her own thorny past in Newport and decide how to honor the Coventry legacy in all its chaotic glory.
