The Wedding Gift by Kathleen McKenna

Paperback: 254 Pages

Publisher: Bell Bridge Books

ISBN: 978-1-61194-052-7

My Rating: 5/5
Leann wasn't good enough for her upper-crust in-laws, so they gave her the mansion none of them wanted. Years ago, something or someone in the house killed Leann's brother. Will its violent secrets kill her next?

I have to start off by saying WOW! I am totally blown away by Kathleen McKenna's writing in 'The Wedding Gift.' It's such an awesome feeling to find a book that you can relate to, that you love, that you are fully invested in and I've found that in this book. I was in the middle of midterms when I started reading this so it took me a little while to read but I will admit, it did pull me away from studying at times.

This book is about a girl named Leann who is completely conceited and thinks that nothing is ever good enough. She's materialistic in the worst way. Even through all her flaws, I loved Leann's character. She was deep but shallow at the same time. There is such character development and relationship development between characters that you find yourself fully involved in every aspect of it. Leann marries for money...basically. Which ends up being a terrible mistake. This book is all about murder, affairs, broken hearts and strong, strong emotions. Oh, and don't forget about the amazing paranormal aspect as well!

'The Wedding Gift' was simply stunning. I'm still reeling from it. I was so into the book that I stayed up until 3 in the morning reading it last night! It's absolutely amazing and I would recommend it to everyone! This is not a YA title explicitly but it plays out like one. It's like a YA for adults, if that makes sense. Definitely, definitely check out 'The Wedding Gift' by Kathleen McKenna, I promise you will not be disappointed!
