Reality Wedding by Laura Heffernan
I received an ecopy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. My library hold for Bachelor Nation by Amy Kaufman came in and I decided to read these books concurrently. I am not an avid fan of The Bachelor/Bachelorette shows but I’ve seen enough to be curious as to what goes on behind the scenes as far as editing etc. There have been rumours through the years about the manipulation of contestants and how the show is scripted. Reality Wedding is the third book in the series and I haven’t read the first two. It would have given me more context for this latest book but it was fine as a stand alone book. This is a funny, light hearted look at a reality wedding with all worst things you have heard about the production of The Bachelor shows thrown in. The writing was good and the main character was likeable as she tries to thwart all the extreme things the producers throw at her for her “reality” wedding. Reading both books at the same time puts the emphasis on how none of this is in fact reality. If anything, Reality Wedding starts to look like all of the plot and craziness in the book could actually happen! If you are a big fan of reality TV this series is for you. If you like a lighthearted read this is also for you. The book is fast paced with a lot of fun characters and situations.
