Pete Toleffson, an assistant attorney in Des Moines, has taken some leave time to go to Konigsburg, Texas, as best man at his younger brother, Cal’s, wedding. He has no clue what is all required from the best man.
Janie Dupree is the assistant manager of a bookstore and Docia’s maid of honor. Docia is her best friend and boss. Of late, Janie feels she is the liaison between Docia and Docia’s mother as the wedding day approaches.
Solitary man, Pete, hopes he can find someone one day to be as happy as his brother, Cal. After meeting Janie, he likes the way she smiles. Janie knows there is much to do in planning a wedding and is happy that Docia asked her to be in it. After she meets Pete, something clicks as she works with him on the wedding. Neither thought they would find such a connection that would leave Pete feeling his brain melted after an encounter with Janie. Once the wedding is over, will Pete be able to return to Des Moines when his heart has found a place in Texas?
Wedding Bell Blues is one drama wedding I do not think I would want to be caught in the middle of. Then there were times with the wedding rehearsal that I felt as if I was standing next to the squabbling members. Watching Janie and Pete trying to get the wedding into perspective was an eye-opener. Meg Benjamin creatively spins a wedding tale often leaving this reader, at times, with her mouth open. I agree with Docia about the brownies. The numerous characters are well-rounded, even with all the ups and downs that come with them, not to mention difficult mothers. I loved Pete’s reaction when they considered using the dog to carry the ring.
