A Lowcountry Wedding by Mary Alice Monroe #XOXperts


Wedding season has arrived in New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe’s next novel in the “distinct, complex, and endearing” (Charleston Magazine) Lowcountry Summer series, set against the romantic, charming Charleston Lowcountry.

Nothing could be more enchanting than a summer wedding—or two!—in Charleston’s fabled lowcountry. A centuries-old plantation, an avenue of ancient oaks dripping moss, a storied ballroom, a sand dune at sunset…

Yet when a stranger arrives, a long held family secret could silence the bells ringing for the Muir sisters. Scandals surface, family bonds are questioned, and promises are broken and renewed. In A Lowcountry Wedding Monroe delves into the heart of marriage, commitment, and family ties. Huffington Post calls the Lowcountry Summer series “the perfect beach read and a whole lot more.” 


It is wedding season in Charleston and the Lowcountry. And boy, is it a treat. A wonderful beach or a fascinating old plantation….decisions, decisions, decisions. 

These three half sisters, Carson, Harper and Dora, meld so well together and infuse the story with such charm and grace. The complexities of each character and their relationships seem to compliment and bring diversity to this novel. I was enraptured with where this story was going and where it ended. I so hope there is another novel in this series. This was like visiting with old friends.

I do not want to give away a spoiler. Let’s just say, Carson and Harper are coveting each other’s wedding. This brings on some classic turmoil and squabbles, like you can only see in a family. But, it also brings the sisters closer to  each other and strengthens their family bond. 

I fell in love with this series in the first book, The Summer Girls.  I love the setting of the Lowcountry.  I feel like I am there, experiencing the wildlife, the smells and the view. 

To say Mary Alice Monroe does a fantastic job is an understatement. I can relate to each sister and I so want to go visit the Lowcountry. I just want to crawl inside this series and live!

I received this novel as part of Simon and Schusters XOXPERTS.
