Wedding planner Tyler Warren left heartbreak behind when she ran away from her small Southern hometown and started a new life in a big city. Years later, she wants to believe in the fairy-tale endings her job promotes, but the clients she meets day after day seem to be more “Crazily Ever After” than “Happily Ever After.”
Meanwhile, her own attempts at romance play out as bizarre comedies rather than love stories, and she’s starting to think Prince Charming either fell off his horse or got eaten by a dragon. When unresolved issues from Tyler’s past complicate things even further, she discovers she may yet have some things to figure out before she can find her own happy ending.
This delightful first book in the Tales Behind the Veils series chronicles Tyler’s wacky misadventures, both personal and professional. Whether she’s getting insane requests from brides or outlandish requests on dates, you’re sure to be charmed and entertained by the Diary of a Single Wedding Planner.

Diary of a Single Wedding Planner is a great read! I really enjoyed reading it and got sucked into the story. I kept wanting to know what happened next. The main character, Tyler, is very likable and down to earth. Her life is closer to the life of real person. I could imagine one of my friends having a life like her’s and behaving like her. I was able to relate to her very well. I like the way the author, Violet Howe, reveals Tyler’s personality and background. You get to know her like you would a friend in real life, except you also get to see her innermost thoughts. I also loved the irony that Tyler is a wedding planner and she helps people who found the love of their life make their wedding day special, but she is single and has many dating disasters while looking for Mr. Right.
The format of Diary of a Single Wedding Planner is unique and really adds to the story. The book isn’t written in traditional chapters. It is written like a diary. It starts in October and goes through January. Each “chapter” is a diary entry, written on different days. Sometimes the days are sequential and sometimes she skips a few days, just like a real diary. It was fun to see what things she thought were important enough to write down and how she would “talk” to herself and rationalize things.
I also enjoyed the other characters in Diary of a Single Wedding Planner. They are really what make the story move forward. I was able to see Tyler’s growth and self discovery as she interacted with Cabe, Dwayne, Lillian, Laura, and other characters. This story was full of funny moments, drama, and romance.
I think that Diary of a Single Wedding Planner is the perfect book for anyone who wants to read a romance but not have to worry about racy sex scenes or bad language. The story wasn’t squeaky clean; it wouldn’t be a love story without a passionate kiss or two. I definitely would read it again and wouldn’t mind there being a sequel.
I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions in this review are 100% my own.
