About this item
Book SynopsisOne of BuzzFeed's "Books Coming Out This Summer That You Need to Seriously Read" * One of Bustle's "New Romance Novels to Make Your Spring Reading Even Dreamier Than You Imagined" A charming romantic comedy about three sisters who are struggling to keep the family wedding planning business afloat--all the while trying to write their own happily-ever-afters in the process. All's fair in love and business. The de la Rosa family and their wedding planning business have been creating happily ever afters in the Washington, DC area for years, making even the most difficult bride's day a fairytale. But when their parents announce their retirement, the sisters--Marisol, Janelyn, and Pearl--are determined to take over the business themselves. But the sisters quickly discover that the wedding business isn't all rings and roses. There are brides whose moods can change at the drop of a hat; grooms who want to control every part of the process; and couples who argue until their big day. As emotions run high, the de la Rosa sisters quickly realize one thing: even when disaster strikes--whether it's a wardrobe malfunction or a snowmageddon in the middle of a spring wedding--they'll always have each other. Perfect for fans of the witty and engaging novels of Amy E. Reichert and Susan Mallery, The Key to Happily Ever After is a fresh romantic comedy that celebrates the crucial and profound power of sisterhood.
Review Quotes"Marcelo charms in this feel-good story... The layered plot, which includes a dark period in Mari's past that places roadblock to finding love in the present, and the cast of colorful supporting characters, particularly sassy shop seamstress Amelia, are a treat. Fans of Jill Shalvis and Jane Green will particularly enjoy this."-- "Publishers Weekly" "Marcelo movingly portrays sisters who love each other to death but also drive each other crazy. Give this to readers who like Susan Mallery's portrayal of complicated sisters, or Jasmine Guillory's sweet, food-focused city settings."-- "Booklist" "This sweet family story/romance will appeal to fans of Susan Mallery and RaeAnne Thayne. Especially suitable for public libraries looking for more #ownvoices authors."-- "Library Journal" "The Key to Happily Ever After gave me so many emotions: I loved and cheered for all three sisters, and wanted to shake each of them in turn; I swooned for all of the romance; and I got choked up about their struggles and their victories. But mostly, I loved the de la Rosa sisters so much, and I can't wait for the whole world to love them." --Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal "A beautiful story about the bonds of family and the challenges of love -I was cheering for all the de la Rosa sisters!" --Jennifer Probst, New York Times bestselling author of All or Nothing at All "A charming, fun read. I love these sisters! Clear your calendar--once you start, you won't be able to put down this wonderful story." --Susan Mallery, # 1 New York Times bestselling author of California Girls "This is the most aptly titled romance. A true gem filled with heart, laughs and a cast of delightful characters. I read (and adored) The Key to Happily Ever After in one sitting!" --Nina Bocci, USA Today bestselling author of On the Corner of Love and Hate "Devoted sisters, swoony new loves, and wedding drama--what more could you ask for in a perfect summer read? The Key to Happily Ever After delivers it all with Tif Marcelo's enchanting prose. By the end, you'll want to be a de la Rosa sister, too!"--Amy E. Reichert, author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake "The de la Rosa sisters are much like the flower in their name: delicate and poised but also fiercely strong. As the trio takes over the family wedding planning business, they will need all those traits and more to transform their careers for a new generation. As they forge their paths both together and separately, these three sisters discover that love--like a wedding--is all about timing. Full of wisdom, wit and, of course, wedding gowns, Tif Marcelo's latest charmer proves that, sometimes, The Key to Happily Ever After, comes along when you least expect it. This endearing, deeply poignant trip down the aisle(s) is full of romance, unexpected twists and the perfect helping of family drama."--Kristy Woodson Harvey, author of The Southern Side of Paradise
