KIRKUS REVIEW

Willa Havisham has always wanted a father, but her mother, Stella, seems destined to always be the wedding planner and never the bride. As Cape Cod’s most sought-after expert on The Big Day, Stella has devised a 12-point plan for assuring a perfect wedding, but something seems to be missing. Losing Willa’s father has made her untouchable, but Willa is determined to break through to her. A touching adventure unfolds as Willa tries to remind her mother of the 13th and most important ingredient, love. A promising love interest, a celebrity wedding and dozens of cherry cordials keep Willa hopeful that her mother might finally find love. This smart and funny fairy tale stays hopeful and enchanting, even as it touches on the more difficult aspects of love. Romantic and real. (Fiction. 8-12)
