My Big Fat Wedding (Italian-style!) meets Modern Family #Giveaway

Posted by Susan B James on 3:00:00 AM with 12 comments

Please welcome Beth Carter who is giving away three ecopies of her latest entry in her wonderful Coconuts series.

Babies At Coconuts

For Fans of My Big Fat Greek Wedding (Italian-style!)

A clash of cultures.
A chaotic wedding.
A surprise baby.
Just another day at Coconuts.

Coordinating the most joyous day of her son’s life should be easy. After all, Suzy is a wedding planner. But a meddling future mother-in-law wasn't on the checklist. A wacky rehearsal dinner, beach wedding, and a baby—not necessarily in that order—ensures bedlam, if not hilarity, among the two head-butting moms. The show must go on, with or without the wedding party.
Hope is adept at counseling students but has given up on dieting and having sleek hair. She has even gotten used to the fact that her adopted father no longer remembers her—until a surprise engagement and a newspaper article leave her in shambles.

Sexy banker Alex conveys totally in control while ignoring the simmering boil of her disastrous relationship. Her marketing rival is her kryptonite, but a disastrous bank event may spell her downfall.

Socialite Cheri Van Buren seems to have the perfect life. The New Yorker deftly juggles celebrity events but is growing concerned about her jet-setting parents’ strained marriage. After competing in a cake-decorating contest, another chef leaves her speechless.

More than a Happy Hour haven, Coconuts is the unknowing guardian of shared secrets, bombshell revelations, a few tears, and joy. Will the best friends ever find happiness? It doesn’t look good.

Note from author: even though Babies at Coconuts is part of a series  it can be read as a stand-alone.

Note from Susan. Babies at Coconuts had been out for five weeks and it's already got 34 reviews with an average of 4.5 Stars. You go, Beth.

Review:5 stars - "...a fantastic read. I haven't read the first two in the series but I did find it an easy read as a standalone. It has just about everything you could want - romance,tears, laughter, ups and downs, hilarity, everything. I was hooked, from the first page to the last. Character development was second to none and each one of them is likable, if not loveable. Loved the story,loved the plot, a great, easy read. Highly recommended
