Synopsis from Goodreads: Prized and stored away for safekeeping, the timeless ivory wedding dress, with its scooped neck and cleverly fitted bodice, sits gently folded in its box, whispering of Happily Ever Afters. To Kendra, Brianna, and Lauren it's a reminder of what could have been, the promise of a fairy tale, and a friendship torn apart. But as Kendra knows firsthand: it wasn't the dress's fault. Once closer than sisters, Lauren and Bree have grown up and grown apart, allowing broken promises and unfulfilled dreams to destroy their friendship. A successful author, Lauren returns home to the Outer Banks, fianc� in tow, to claim the dress she never thought she'd wear. While Bree, a bookstore owner, grapples with the realities of life after you marry the handsome prince. As the former best friends wrestle with their uncertain futures, they are both certain of one thing: some betrayals can never be forgiven. Now on the eve of her daughter Lauren's wedding, Kendra struggles with a secret she's kept for far too long. And vows to make sure the dress will finally bring Lauren and Bree back together--knowing they'll need each other to survive the coming storm.
My Review: I really enjoyed this book and I know it will be make a fabulous vacation read for this summer! I loved how different Lauren and Bree were but knew each other so well that those difference didn’t matter. I also really enjoyed the relationships in the book and how things developed. I did want the dress to play a little bit of a bigger role. It was there and it had a role, but I wanted more of its history. Or maybe I wanted it to have a slightly more magical aspect. Either way though this was a great read about family, the friends who become family and the struggles to keep our families together. I loved it and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a fun beach read!
