Southern women's fiction became a lot sassier with the arrival of author Beth Albright, who never misses a chance to honor her native Alabama in her novels. Wedding Belles, the second installment of Albright's Sassy Belles series, is full of women with quintessentially Southern double names like Vivi Ann and Myra Jean. Actress Allison McLemore brings a thick and endearing Southern accent to this entertaining and at times off-the-wall tale of marriage and college football. The audiobook opens with a reference to a trailer park psychic, contains a pregnant bride, and is full of humorous observations like "In the Deep South, women can wring your neck, hug your neck, and bless your heart all in the same day".

Publisher's Summary

The Sassy Belles are back... and this time, wedding bells are ringing!

Seven months pregnant and head over heels in love, Vivi Ann McFadden is busy pulling together the final details for her wedding to Lewis Heart, famous play-by-play announcer for the Crimson Tide. But with two wedding-planners-gone-wild, a psychic giving her advice, and the ceremony happening on the same day as the wildly popular Crimson Tide kickoff game, chaos reigns supreme. Luckily, maid of honor Blake O'Hara Heart is on the job. She'll tackle this wedding if it's the last thing she does!

But not everyone is cheering for the happy couple. News of the upcoming nuptials has brought Lewis' old flame back to Tuscaloosa - and she's got a secret that could mean the end of Lewis' marriage... before it even begins.

Sexy Southern fun... with a hint of magnolia!

This book had good reviews; what am I missing?

Where's the story? Lots of the reviewers described themselves as Southern girls and were tickled with this book. I don't know why they're not insulted by it.
Blake, the main character is a lawyer. Quite an accomplishment, but mention of her career takes a backseat to baby showers, clothes and the wonders of Aquanet. A murder mystery sort of hovers around the edge of the story, but that's gettin in the way of planning a wedding so it gets wrapped up in ScoobyDoo style and we get on with the Fru Fru wedding (the wedding is planned by "A Fru Fru Affair" event planners.)
Here's the worst part. Blake is in a failed marriage with a senatorial candidate. Though they have already decided on divorce, they are keeping it a secret until after the election, and presenting themselves as a happy professional couple. Although Blake says Harry is a lousy husband, he'll be a good Senator. Geeeeez. He's dishonest and a womanizer, is that what this author considers good Senator material? Meanwhile, Blake is having an affair with the lead investigator of the city police department. There is some discussion about not getting caught, but nothing about any ethical dilemma.
I didn't look to see when this book was written. If it weren't for references to cellphones and other technology, I would have assumed it was 1950 something.
My recommendation..save your money. If you like books about Southern women's lives, try some Deborah Smith. You get the idiosyncrasies and charm of Southern life, but her women have made it to the twenty first century.

I just loved it!

Such a fun book. I quickly turned into a Beth Albright fan. As well as Allison McLemore.
The story is light and fun. Made me laugh and think of my friends with different sayings and rationale.

Wedding belles

The sassy belle books are fantastic. They are laugh out loud funny and the characters, perfect. Being a southern girl I can so relate to the characters. I love the way those woman take care of each other and the sense of family commitment, no matter what. Great read!!!!

1. There is cheating yet her friends and family think nothing of it.
2. The h has revenge sex, even though she knows that she should wait.
3. The H still supports her cheating soon to be Ex and considers him the best candidate for the job.
4. Even after he screws her over huge, she still supports him.

If these were different, this would have been a 4-4.5 Star read for me.

Loved it!

Just a light hearted little book! Enjoyed it thoroughly. The narrator was absolutely excellent. I don’t know how she could keep all the characters apart & sounding so different. There were parts that I literally laughed out loud.
I’m looking forward to starting Sleigh Bells, the next book in the series.

Very enjoyable!

Difficult one to review.
I really enjoyed the storyline and characters.
I did however struggled with the heavy Southern accent but that is my issue and does not mean the narrator's performance was bad
