Novels with Nell - The Bride Will Keep Her Name

It seems as though things are working against me when it comes to blog posts this week. From a lack of time to my computer having a mind of its own I am hoping that things will be back to normal from here on out. Usually Novels with Nell posts go live on Wednesday but I didn't want to have y'all wait another week to se Nell's most recent suggestion.

Although Nell and I don't typically agree on book genres, I can occasionally get behind a "chick lit" suggestion. Fortunately, Nell's most recent suggestion combines my love of a plot line with a bit of a thrill with the classic page turning story that comes with chick lit. As I start my list of books to read this summer by the pool I'm hoping to break up some of my other reads with this suggestion!

“Madison Mandelbaum is on top of the world. She’s got a loving — though totally neurotic — family, two fabulous girlfriends, and best of all, she’s head-over-heels in love with Colin Darcy, an investigative reporter for NBC, a distant relation to the Queen, and–most importantly–Maddie’s fiancé. Be careful what you wish for her mother’s always fond of saying, but with Colin on her arm, Maddie is certain that everything will finally go right.

With one week to go before the wedding, Maddie receives an anonymous email that suggests that her fiancé may not be the man she thinks he is. Is this someone’s idea of a pre-wedding joke? Yet as sinister phone calls, text messages, and disturbing clues turn up, all linking Colin to the murder of a sexy callgirl, Maddie realizes that she must get to the bottom of this. Fast.

As the clock counts down towards what was to be the ceremony of her dreams, Maddie’s life is turned into a wild race to find the truth. Between frantic dress fittings, entertaining future in-laws, and putting on a brave face, she and her best friends are propelled into an undercover investigation that plunges them into a seedy underworld of anonymous sex and backroom politics.

As her search brings her ever closer to the knowledge she desperately seeks, Maddie finds her heart being tested in ways she’s never dreamed. Determined to take back her life, she discovers just how far someone in love will go to cover up the truth. And along the way, she stumbles upon a shocking secret she never saw coming.”


  1. Oooh, the description sounds so interesting! Haven't read a chick lit in a while, so this should be good. Thank you for the recommendation! ❤️

    I’m Bryan Roland by name, i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scam everywhere, Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders.

    I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Mr Stephen Williams ( A God fearing man) who lend me a loan of 145,000 Euro under 72 working hours without any stress. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan from this company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them i filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my shock I was given the loan.

    If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact him now via:

    I‘m using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders.

    Thanks you STEPHEN WILLIAMS Loan FIRM for your help
