A Wedding Invitation by Alice J. Wisler is the story of Samantha Bravencourt’s life—the one she has now and the one she once shared with Carson Brylie when they were both teachers in a refugee camp in the Philippines.
Samantha has tried to leave thoughts of Carson behind and create a life she loves. She has mostly succeeded and has no reason to believe Carson hasn’t done the same thing. Then a wedding invitation from a college friend leads to his reentry into her life, and one of their former students requests their help with a special project.
I enjoyed A Wedding Invitation, although it wasn’t as fast-paced and full of mystery or drama as I was led to believe by the summary. It was slower and sweeter, with events unfolding in the present while parts of the story were revealed through Samantha’s memories of her time in the refugee camp. I don’t regret the time I spent reading the book, but I wouldn’t have chosen it if I hadn’t been misled by the back cover.
That said, if you enjoy sweet romance, a slow pace, and flashbacks, you will love this book. Give it a try!
