Untangling The Knot is A Must Read

I recently was given a chance to review this amazing book. I have to admit that lately I have gotten away from book reviews because I just have not had the time to read. I regret that because one of things I most enjoy in life is reading. So I am very glad that I was able to take the time to review this book. I absolutely loved it. And it was perfect timing for me. I have been planning my daughter’s quinceneara. Even though it is not a wedding it has a lot of similarities to one. So I can understand the mistakes that Gabrielle makes when she is helping Mandy and Ryan plan their wedding.

Here is a brief summary of the book. Gabriella works at a local Catholic church. Her mother died when she was in high school and she is forced to take care of her father when he is dying. She handles all the festivities for the church for example, weddings, communions, and other holidays. Because of this position she meets and helps Ryan and Mandy plan their wedding. Ryan had lost his first wife to an aneurysm two years before and he thinks he needs to remarry for the sake of his children, Chloe and Peter. Mandy is more about getting married than she is about having an instant family. She sees Ryan’s lifestyle as a step up from her social status. Gabriella can identify with what the children are feeling because of the loss of her mom. What occurs in the planning of the wedding makes Ryan, Mandy, and Gabriella question what the future holds for them.

“I did what?”

Twenty-eight year old Gabriella Bessu is St. Therese’s meticulous wedding ceremony coordinator. So the fact that she has mistakenly signed her newest couple up for an annulment, rather than a wedding, sends her Catholic guilt into overdrive.

But who can blame her? The groom is gorgeous and his two kids tug at Gabriella’s heart in a way that overcomes all her best intentions. Before long she’s in over her head, fixing her mixed-up plans and helping the children and dad come to terms with their haunting grief for the mother and wife they lost years earlier.

Can Gabriella untangle her own fears and accept the messy life that God has handed them?

I have to say that I absolutely loved this book. It is so refreshing to find a romance that is not filled with smut and is based on the Biblical principles of what is right and wrong. This would be a great book for everybody including young adults or teenagers.

  1. Your review really made my day. I am so thrilled that you liked the story and that it was fun to read. I have never been to a quineceara, but I have heard so much about them that I know the similarities are there. It has been a while since I planned my own wedding, so I am glad to know my memory of mix-ups can really happen.

    Thanks so much for hosting me on your lovely blog site. I will look forward to hearing what your readers have to say and will plan to stop by often over the next few days to reply to comments.
