Paige is a cute and quirky character with an amazing sense of humor. She works as a mentor for a large church with an enormous youth group. For the most part things are going well, except for the fact that her boyfriend, Tyler, has been acting a bit weird. Did she do something? Well, other than being caught in an embrace with her ex-boyfriend-- but she explained that. What else can she do?
Her sister, Preslee, and best friend, Layla are both getting married, which lends some fun drama to the story--especially if you love all things Pinterest.
Erynn Mangum writes in a wonderfully humorous style, but manages to shine the light on some of the real problems that young singles face as they navigate the world of dating.
As the mom of two twenty somethings I could relate to Paige's parents hopes and prayers for those special someones their daughters will one day marry.
I feel a Father of the Bride marathon coming on...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
A few things about her:
So, if we were having this conversation in person, we would probably be hanging out at Starbucks or one of the cute coffeehouses in town. I’m nuts about all things coffee, I’m crazy about all things pink and girly, and I love, love, love the Food Network! I’m married to my best friend and the most amazing guy ever, Jon. He is amiable toward coffee, does not like anything pink or girly and tolerates the Food Network. So, we make a good match! In July 2010, we became parents to one of the funniest, cutest, sweetest little guys in the whole world (and nope, we aren’t biased at all!), our Nater-Tot, who is legally known as Nathan. Most days, I’m cleaning up messes, making goofy faces, trying to fit some writing in, and just LOVING the life that God has given me!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Despite her valiant efforts, Paige Alder seems stuck in chaos. Her new job as youth intern keeps her hopping from coffee shop to coffee shop all summer long, but at least she’s loving the one-on-one time she gets to spend with the girls. The unfortunate side-effect is that now, four weeks of laundry fills her apartment. Plus, she barely has time to help her sister and best friend with their weddings! And even worse? Something is definitely wrong between her and Tyler. She apologized for what he thought he saw happen with Luke. Can’t they move past it? Or could there be something he’s not telling her—something that could change everything?
