My Thoughts"A Wedding On Primrose Street" is book #7 in the (Life in Icicle Falls) series.What can I sayThis was another fun summer chick-lit book by Ms. Roberts.

Anyone who enjoys a feel-good story with some light-hearted romance will be delighted with this fun "Mind-Candy" [...]

Such fun! Another great read by Sheila Roberts in the lovely small Pacific Northwest town of Icicle Falls! I enjoyed reading about several generations of some of our favorite families in this series. Not many books are written this way, where we can get involved in the lives of a young woman, her mother, AND her grandmother. I think Sheila has a unique perspective on how she writes these books. I highly recommend the entire series, and this is #7, so you've got plenty to keep yourself busy with [...]

A Wedding on Primrose Street is number 7 in the Life in Icicle Falls series and my first read in this series. When I started the book I did not realize it was part of a series and I did not have any trouble at all understanding what was going on. It is a cute little romance, a quick easy read. I liked the characters, loved the town. A place I would very much like to visit.
As usual Sheila writes a magnificent book. I loved the extras at the end!!! I can't wait for the next installment of life in Icicle Falls. :) Sheila draws you into life in Icicle Falls, with characters that make you love them!!
I recently read A Wedding on Primrose Street by Sheila Roberts. This book is the latest in the Life in Icicle Falls Series. (#7, if I’m not mistaken).The story mainly takes place between Seattle, where Anne, mother of the bride and a wedding planner by trade, is attempting to get her daughter Laney, to get on board with planning her wedding in a way that will be “tasteful.“ Anne thinks the perfect setting would be at Primrose Haus in Icicle Falls. Laney and her fiancé, on the other hand, [...]
I really enjoyed this story. It was a wonderful story of love and relationships. Especially the relationships between mothers and daughters. This is the story of four women. Anne is a wedding planner and her daughter Laney is getting married. She realizes as she is planning the wedding that she is becoming one of the Momzilla's that she deals with when planning other weddings. Laney and her fiance just want to get married in Vegas but Anne never had a proper wedding and doesn't want her daughter [...]
Ahhh, Sheila has us in Icicle Falls again. Oh to be there where things are beautiful, quaint, delicious, full of fellowship, and good Chocolate! Of course there's a reason I separated delicious and good chocolate. We see the lovely Primrose Haus and know weddings are coming. There are descriptions of weddings and interactions with people in weddings, including Momzillas. We get to know Anne, Laney, Roberta, Daphne, Hank, Drake personallyoh, and as the song went (tv show) then there's Maude. Shei [...]

A nice addition to the Icicle Falls series. I really enjoyed the build up of the different characters to the primary wedding, but I felt a little cheated nearing the end. We spend weeks and months building up the wedding and then suddenly fast forward to the ending (which you see coming a mile away.)I like the introduction of the new characters to the mountain town and the parts they play in the overall series. I am glad to see multiple sides, one set of characters see the town as charming and t [...]
Another exquisite addition to the Icicle Falls series. It had my attention from the very first page and I simply couldn't put it down. Anne Richardson is a wedding planner, so when her daughter Laney becomes engaged Anne wants the perfect Icicle Falls wedding. Laney, not so much. Roberta Gilbert is the owner of Primrose Haus. The place for weddings and receptions. When Roberta's daughter returns home and wants to become more involved in the business, those receptions take on an interesting new f [...]
I wish I liked this book at all because I love the series and the author but I can't even bring myself to give it 2.5 stars and round to 3. Why? From the get-go I was annoyed with the controlling nature of the motb, Anne. I assume this is realistic but who wants to read 300 pages of a mom being a freaking idiot toward her daughter's wedding? And you can see what's going to happen from pretty early on. I didn't care for Daphne and her attitude. The writing is good, of course, but this is not what [...]

How does a Wedding Planner plan her daughter's wedding? We learn more about Icicle Falls plus a lesson on listening to what your daughter really wants and not what you want for her. The end of the book includes some recipes that I think I will save and also includes some wedding stories of other ladies as they are enjoying the reception. You really need to read on after the recipes!# 7 of Life in Icicle Falls series
A wedding planner has vowed that when it comes to her daughter's wedding she will listen to what the bride wants and not be a momzilla. But as the day gets closer, the bride is having second thoughts about a huge wedding and is talking Vegas. This series is set in the Northwest and is a nice place to visit. Always a romance with a happy ending and lots of couples who enjoy living there.
There's no better place to get married than Icicle Falls. Roberta makes her home into the perfect place to make beautiful wedding memories. Ann a wedding planner from Seattle wants her daughter to have the perfect wedding. Mother daughter relationships are tested. A Wedding On Primrose Street is a great summer read that will have you laughing and loving life in Icicle Falls.
Another cute entry in this series. A mother who is a wedding planner, trying to force her idea of a great wedding on her daughter causing a bit of a problem in their relationship. Actually, this one was not just a nice romance, but was more about mother/daughter relationships. Enjoyable read.
I just really didn't like any of the main characters. Anne and Roberta were annoyingly controlling. Laney was a wimp who could never stand up for herself; even her friends made fun of her bc of it. And Daphne never learned from mistakes; by the age of 30 or 40 or 50 she really should have gotten over the mommy doesn't approve of me bs and taken ownership of her life. Instead she quits her job, moves in with mommy, and mopes around with a terrible victim whoa is me whiny attitude. Just not very l [...]
Originally published at Reading RealityAlthough there are a lot of weddings in this entry into the Life in Icicle Falls series, this one isn’t really a romance. The weddings are all for romances that have already reached their happily ever after, we hope. Or to paraphrase one of the wedding planners, her job is to create a perfect wedding, a perfect marriage is not in her job description. Or capability.Instead of a romance, this story is all about relationships. Specifically, mother/daughter r [...]
It took me a little longer than usual to really get into this book. Once I did, it really got my attention. This is a great story about mother-daughter relationships . Weddings can be a stressful time and often someone becomes a Bride/MomZilla. Wedding preparations really kept things interesting. I really enjoyed this book
Great story about weddings and the life around the bride and groom. I love these types of book which show you a glimpse into the life around weddings. I truly enjoy reading Sheila Roberts books. I will read the next book and have and will recommend them to family and friends.
It took me a bit to get in to the story. Roberta and her daughter reminded mms e so much of my daughter and I.
Enjoyable read. Virtually none of the romance you might expect from this author. More on mother-daughter relationships.
Sweet storyThis was a sweet, though predictable, story. I especially liked the wrap-up at the end, learning the wedding stories of the other couples.
