Diann Hunt's For Better or for Worse ~ Reviewed

For Better or for Worse
By Diann Hunt
Published by Thomas Nelson
ISBN-13: 978-1-59554-195-6


She's a wedding coordinator ... He's a divorce attorney

She begins marriages ... He ends them.

How could these two possibly find common ground?

Wendy Hartline is finally starting to settle into the single life. After a difficult season of grief following her husband's death, she's taken over the family business of coordinating memorable weddings.

Life has become ... comfortable.

Then the charming and incredibly frustrating Marco Amorini opens a legal practice—specializing in divorces next to her wedding chapel and stirs up everything.

Wendy learns that perhaps there is such a thing as second chances in this hilarious story of the pleasures and pains of new love in midlife.


Diann Hunt frosts a three-tiered-wedding-cake of a story with the delectable icing of humor. Poor Wendy not only has to deal with her own love life, her daughter and son-in-law are tossing grenades at each other, and the cake topper is Wendy's son has proposed to Marco's daughter. Not wanting their children to marry too young, Marco and Wendy embark on a scheme to break them up.

I kept my husband awake with my laughing, so For Better or for Worse was banned from the bedroom. Hunt tosses in a couple of twists you won't see coming. What you will see in her characters is your neighbor or perhaps ... a bit of yourself. And you'll laugh all the way through.

Delightful and completely satisfying, For Better or for Worse delivers the expected high caliber book of Diann Hunt. If you enjoy laughter, I highly recommend For Better or for Worse.
