Blurb: You know that Abby Abernathy unexpectedly became Mrs. Maddox. But what do you really know?

Why did Abby pop the question?
What secrets were shared before the ceremony?
Where did they spend their wedding night?
Who else knew about it . . . and didn’t tell?

Everything about Abby and Travis’s elopement was top-secret . . . until now. Fans of Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster will get all of their questions answered in this whirlwind tale of the wedding day (and night!)—and as with all good stories, this one will definitely have been worth the wait. 

Beautiful Disaster was pretty epic. And then we had the privilege of Travis’s POV in Walking Disaster – which I liked even better. Now, we get both of them – together and the whole brushed over story of their spur of the moment trip to Vegas…. and obviously the wedding! *EEK!!!*

I see now why it was so emotionless for Abby. I could tell she was holding something back from Travis, he could sense it too. He knows her better than she knows herself. But really reading into the background of the fire – the lives lost and the fear that Abby had of loosing Travis, of him going to jail and blamed for the entire accident. Spending time in prison she knew was the only thing that would keep him away from her and she was bound to do anything to stop it. Even if that meant jumping on a plane and running back to the very state that had just broken them.

I felt sad for her – I felt sad for him. It wasn’t the exciting spontaneous trip everyone should have when they elope. They should be doing for one and only one reason; because they love one another. Not for guilt, not for safety – and that dark cloud looming over their heads was so sad. But really drove the feelings of that horrible night into my mind.

Anyone who is a fan of Abby & Travis will love this book because it gives us more insight into them and their relationship. And let’s face it, we’ve all been going through some pretty big Maddox withdrawal.

    I’ve heard a lot of people think we shouldn’t read beautiful wedding, because it ruins the whole love story of Travis and Pidge. I need help, I’m scared. Someone who has read it,tell me what to do?!


    • lol I can see why someone who hasn’t read it would say that. There is a definite spin on the story I wasn’t expecting. But it made sense to me and it didn’t make me love Trav & Pige any less 🙂
