Grāmatas apraksts no Amazon/Synopsis from Amazon

Immersed in the world of weddings and romance, Lily Lavender grew up believing in brides, grooms and happily-ever-afters. A direct descendent of the British royals, it seemed her destiny and royal birthright to someday assume a position as wedding coordinator in their family-owned wedding chapel business. But when her mother Mimi’s third marriage eventually fails, Lily’s dreams of her own happily-ever-after quickly fade. She’s no longer interested in a life of assisting brides walk down the aisle into a life of disillusionment and possible divorce. Lily turns her back on The Royal Wedding Chapel and leaves Las Vegas to fashion a life of her own. Years later, Lily—now a single mom—discovers her teenage daughter has run off to Las Vegas, lured by Mimi to help run the chapel. Determined to save her daughter from the broken dreams of Sin City and the nonsensical world of which family fairy tales are made, Lily returns to Las Vegas. But nothing prepares Lily for the royal drama which awaits her… or the sins and secrets she stumbles across that threaten to close the chapel and ruin her family forever.

Mana recenzija/My review

Lilijas meita Viktorija jeb vienkārši Tori(17g) vienudien iziet no klases(vasarā pēc pašas un mātes izvēles), un ar mašīnu viena pati aizbraukusi uz Lasvegasu. Pilsēta, no kuras Lilija centusies izvairīties un aizmirst.

Tur Tori vecmamma Elizabete jeb Mimi vada Royal Wedding Chapel. Mimī(tas pats par Tori) kapela nozīmē visu, kaut gan pati precējusies vairāk par vienu reizi. Tajā pašā pilsētā mitinās Tori tēvs Džeks, arī ar viņu Lilijai nav tās pašas siltākās attiecības. Situācija kļūst vēl piņķerētāka, kad uzzinām, ka Džeka tēvs Eds un Mimi agrāk bijuši precēti.

Bet visas nesaskaņas jāaizmirst, jo Elizabeti ķer trieka un attiecīgajā stāvoklī nespējīga vadīt biznesu. Lilija var paļauties uz viņas mūžīgo partneri Frančesku, kura bērnībā bijusi gandrīz vai vairāk kā mamma nekā Elizabete. Ģimenes saitēm liela izturības pārbaude.

Pašai īsti negribot, Lilija tiek ielikta kapelas vadīšanas postenī. Vienlaikus viņa mēģina saprast savu meitu, viņas tēvu un visu kopumā. Kapelai radīta burvīga, karaliska leģenda, bet tas un vēl šis tas stāsta laikā atklājas citādāk. Kamēr Lilija bijusi prom, kapelai nav klājies īpaši spoži. Ir ļauts tai novecot un iestrēgt pagātnē; jāiegulda pūliņi, lai tā atkal spīdētu kā agrāk.

Drusku nepatika frāžu atkārtošanās vai to versija nedaudz pārfrāzēta. Un vispār! Kur tik daudz jūtelības!? Noslēgums tīri tā neko, kaut arī varēja just moralizēšanu.

                                                                                                                                                

Lily’s teenage daughter Victoria or just Tori goes out of her class (on summer) and drives by herself to Las Vegas. To the city from which Lily has tried to avoid and forget.

There lives Tori’s grandmother Elizabeth or just Mimi and she is managing the Royal Wedding Chapel. For her (and also for Tori) the chapel means everything, although she has been married more than once. At the same time Las Vegas is home for Tori’s dad Jack, and with him too Lily doesn’t have the best relationship possible. The situation gets even more complex when the reader finds out that Jack’s father Ed once was married to Mimi.

But they have to put everything aside when Mimi suffers a stroke and is no longer able to work at chapel. Lily can rely on Francesca, Mimi’s partner since forever. She sometimes has been more like a mom for Lily in childhood than Mimi. Family’s strength has to endure a lot.

Not really wanting it Lily finds herself leading the daily life of the chapel. And in the meanwhile she’s trying to understand Tori, her father and everything overall. There’s a wonderful and royal legend for the chapel, but the truth about that and few more things reveal itself during the story. While Lily has been away the Royal Wedding Chapel has lost its charm and elegance, and is in desperate need for refurbishing so it would be like earlier and even better; and not just visually.

A bit too much repetition in phrases or similar version of it slightly different. And anyways, who needs so much feelings! More than enough sentimentality. Still, the ending was ok, with some morality.
