Reviews - What do customers think about Going to the Chapel (Life, Faith & Getting It Right #19) (Steeple Hill Cafe)?
More than your average chick lit novel Jul 16, 2007
I'm very impressed with "Going to the Chapel." It is my favorite type of book - one that makes me laugh, but also makes me think. The main character, Julia, works at a mortuary. Her family thinks she works at a wedding chapel and her cousin Elaine needs a place to get married. You can see where the humor comes in, right? But Julia learns a lot by working at the mortuary and seeing how families react to the deaths of their loved ones, and what regrets they have. She is also successful at applying what she learns to her life.
Character and plot - the soul of any novel - are both excellent. My one complaint about chick lit is that sometimes it seems a bit light on the plot. Not so here. I wrote a short snippet above, but that doesn't even begin to cover the scope of the plot. The characters are a delight. Both the characters and their relationships to each other are fully developed. One of the most enjoyable parts of the novel is watching them grow and change.
I think there is plenty of room here for a sequel and I would be happy to see one.
