Though “wedding season” may be over, we’re never ready to let go of love and romance, especially in our LDS Fiction! Check out these four great novels all centered around one central theme: weddings.

Diamond Rings Are Deadly Things by Rachelle J. Christensen

Adrielle Pyper knows how to plan a wedding. But when her biggest client and best friend is murdered, Adri’s world falls apart. She moves to the posh resort town of Sun Valley, Idaho, and starts from scratch. Thanks to her impeccable taste and unique style, Adri lands two celebrity clients and her business is headed for success–until someone vandalizes the specialty wedding dresses she imported from overseas. Adri must race to uncover the secret hidden within the yards of satin and lace before she becomes the next victim.

Tying the Knot by Josi S. Kilpack, Annette Lyon, Heather B. Moore, and Julie Wright

When Athena Di Jasper accepts dashing bookstore-owner Grey Ronning’s proposal for marriage and they sit down to work out the details of the wedding, they discover it’s a daunting task.  Most of Athena’s family lives in Greece, so Athena and Grey decide there’s only one thing they can do: take a cruise and have a destination wedding in Athens–and with their trademark show of support, the women of the Newport Ladies Book Club are going international with them.

The cruise turns out to be life changing for more than Athena and Grey. Aboard the ship, each book-club lady unfolds a new chapter of her life. In this final installment of the beloved Newport Ladies Book Club series, discover what’s in store for Athena, Ruby, Ilana, Olivia, Victoria, Daisy, Paige, and Shannon. From mending marriages to overcoming addictions, the women of this remarkable group meet their triumphs and tragedies as they always have: together.

Before the Clock Strikes 30 by Aubrey Mace

With wedding festivities swirling around her, the bride’s fortune-telling aunt transfixes young Shannon Fielding. The gypsy woman foresees love in the girl’s future: before her thirtieth year, Shannon will meet the man of her dreams. The promise of romance is absolutely thrilling–it’s almost enough to compensate for the groom’s annoying younger brother…

Shannon has remembered, and loathed, Nathan since their childhood meeting at the wedding reception that set her on a never-ending quest to find her Mr. Right. When Nathan steps back into Shannon’s life, she is forced to reconcile her memory of the obnoxious boy he once was with the endearing man he’s become. Nathan quickly becomes the best friend a girl could ask for–but when their friendship threatens to develop into something more, can Shannon give up the idea of the mysterious soul mate she’s sought for so long?

With the whole world falling apart, what’s a nineteen-year-old divorcee to do? The answer for Sophia is simple: she picks up the pieces of her shattered heart and returns to BYU. Hoping for a clean slate, she embarks on her freshman year–again. But this time, Sophia has a skeleton in her closet, and she’ll go to any length to protect her secret. As she reluctantly navigates a world populated by newly returned missionaries, sweet Suzie Homemakers, and serious students, she finds herself turning more and more to her home teacher, Luke. As their friendship blossoms, will Sophia allow herself to trust again in the hope of a true happy ending?
