About The Book
“Shoshana Thompson is 26 years old, miles from home, and engaged to be married into one of Washington D.C.’s wealthiest families. Andrew Walsh, her fiancé, is Shoshana’s vision of the perfect man. Throughout their engagement, she becomes enamored with his privileged lifestyle.
Rumor has it: when you marry a Walsh, you’re set for life. Her socialite sisters-in-law show her how to live in a Walsh-style world, but just as she is starting to get acclimated, this world introduces her to someone who may shake up her perfect wedding plans.
While Shoshana navigates the tricky world of in-laws and societal wedding planning, she desperately tries to ignore her growing feelings for another man. She knows that exploring this love will threaten her existence as a Walsh. But, when she discovers the feelings may not be one-sided, she knows things are about to get a lot more complicated, especially because this man is absolutely off-limits.
As Shoshana learns, the view from the top is not always the clearest.
Becoming Mrs. Walsh is a story of relationships and the richly layered complexity of family, in-laws, and love.”
I received a copy of Becoming Mrs. Walsh by Jessica Gordon in exchange for an honest review.
At first it was a bit difficult to get into the characters but the author, Jessica Gordon, did a good job of developing the their over-the-top personalities and lifestyles and making the underlying issues they were dealing with totally relatable to our lives.
Shoshana’s confusion to define the relationship between herself and the ever distant Drew, even with their impending marriage, was saddening to see, as well as her inner struggle to choose what was important to her. Her growing feelings for Mark and his inner turmoil only causes more confusion for both of them. The choices at the end of were a bit surprising, but the book is leading me to believe that the author may have a sequel in the works?? Let’s hope.
I totally loved this book. Definitely a great read, I would totally recommend it. Jessica Gordon has done a great job in her debut novel, I would absolutely love to read some more from this author.
