Save the Date by Mary Kay Andrews came unexpectedly in the mail, but my mom decided to pick it up when she was here on vacation.  Rather than write a traditional review, I offered to ask her some questions about her reading experience.

Who are the main characters?

Cara, Brook, Jack, Bert, Gordon, Patricia, Cullen Kane, Marie, and Ryan.

Cara is a florist and wedding planner originally from Ohio who moves to Georgia.  She has issues with love after her divorce.

Ryan and Jack are carpenters who restore buildings.  Bert works for Cara in her shop.  Brook is supposed to get married to Harris, but has a bit of cold feet.  Gordon and Patricia and Marie are Brook’s parents.

Does Cara blend in well with Savannah residents?

She seems to fit in with everyone well, and she has a lot of friends.  She also gets a lot of referrals to her flower shop.  She does floral arrangements for weddings, funerals, graduations, etc.

Is it obvious who Cara’s love interest will be?

Yes.  She meets him at his brother Ryan’s wedding.  They hit it off for a bit and then end up going their separate ways, etc.

What’s the theme?

Love has a restorative power.

Overall impression?

Read to see what happens.  5-star reads.

Mom read this one in a couple of days.  Share your thoughts about this one.


  1. I’m expecting this from a giveaway win. Looks like I ‘ll like it 🙂

    • My mom loved it. She read it in a couple of days, and longer books usually take her a week or more to read. She stayed up late to finish this one

  2. I’m reading it now – it’s a fun book!

  3. Mary Kay Andrews books are always fun! I look forward to this one.

    • I knew she would get a kick out of it. Kathy, I won a book of hers from you agres ago and shared it with mom, and she’s been hooked ever since!

  4. I love how your mom always manages to read a few books on vacation!
