Altared Plans

I recently read Altared Plans by Rebecca Cornish Talley. Here the the description from Amazon.com:
"The perfect day. The perfect marriage. The perfect groom. What could go wrong? Caitlyn has been preparing for her perfect wedding all her life. But when her fiance abandons her at the altar, Caitlyn vows she ll never love again. Going to BYU doesn't make that easy, however, and avoiding all social contact can only last so long. When her bishop calls her to be the mom of her family home evening group, Caitlyn is suddenly thrust into surprising circumstances that leave her flustered the attention of two unwanted suitors. Travis, the FHE dad, has plans to woo Caitlyn by using his cowboy charms while Chase has his own ideas for dating her. Will Travis or Chase change her mind about love? Or will it be deja vu? Follow Caitlyn through all the flirtatious looks, dates, ex-girlfriends, and unexpected surprises. A Window Opens is a light-hearted romance that is sure to please"

MY REVIEW: Maybe I'm just over the whole romance phase of my life but I finding it harder and harder to find a romantic LDS novel that I actually like. This one was just OK and I really do like the main male character Travis but Caitlyn has her own issues. There are a few things she does that had me screaming at the book and just hoping young girls don't think it's OK to lead some poor boy on like she does. Not my favorite but not bad.


  1. Sorry you didn't enjoy it, but thanks for reading it.

  2. Ok, never in a million years would I ever imagine an actual author would read my small blog. That being said, I should have a disclaimer saying any book that ever gets published is infinitely better than anything I could ever write. So I apologize if I came off as hating it, I really didn't. Loved the idea hated the character. I've known someone who lead somebody else on and didn't tell them they weren't interested in getting married to them until it was too late. I just hated that Caitlyn experienced this first hand and then kind of did it to somebody else in the book. Thanks for the reply to my post and I do plan on reading some of your other books!

  3. I felt the same way about the book. It was ok but for the most part I felt it was really choppy and the characters weren't deep enough. I'd like to try another one of her books though and see how it is.
