Additional Information

MARRYING MISSY is the first novel by the very talented Sarah Elle Emm.

Tate Sullivan is in a fix: her best friend, Missy Martin, is getting married.
With constant criticism from Missy Martin, Buckhead heiress and bride-to-be; stress from her intense nursing job; and a short-temper on the rise from her high powered, attorney husband, Georgia-native, Tate Sullivan is engaged in the ultimate balancing act.

Tate has to cope with sleep-deprived night shifts, her closet nicotine habit, her husband's apparent workaholism, her mother's meddlesome behavior, and her ongoing attempt to educate Missy about not making borderline racist remarks about everyone who doesn’t have money or look like her.

When a collision with a runaway Golden Retriever lands Tate in the arms of the newcomer to Atlanta, Dr. Jackson Greenfield, Tate begins to think her mother has concocted the ultimate scheme. Wedding planning has never been so nerve-racking…or dangerous.

Marrying Missy reveals the complexity of those who are merely planning a wedding, preparing for a marriage, and those who aren't sure what their marriage is—or has become.

Sarah Elle Emm captures the world of wedding planning for a particular Georgia princess, but sublimely reveals all that is so often forgotten in that process–love and marriage. - The Publisher

There are some scenes in this book that will have the little realist in you screaming out "OH PLEASE!" I know because it happened to me repeatedly. The thing is, that this author writes so well and includes such fun humor in this book, that you can't help but like it anyway. There are some exaggerated action scenes in this book that would normally make me cringe, but after catching the general gist of where the story was going, I actually felt they added to it. If you are looking for a no smiles, serious read on important topics, go elsewhere...really don't let the door hit'cha. If you are seeking out a fun read that will make you laugh out loud and nod your head in agreement with the characters internal thoughts, this is the way to go.

What I loved the most about this book was the way the author built characters that were really appealing for the reader. Ever good book needs someone you love easily and someone you hate just as easily. This book really delivers. I have to... Read more
I picked this book out looking for something to read by the pool on a summer afternoon. I wanted something enjoyable and light that could keep me hooked throughout the story, and that's exactly what I got. It's not the type of book I typically go for, but I was looking for the perfect summer beach read, and I think I found it!

After the first chapter, I was absolutely convinced I wasn't going to like it. I couldn't stand the character of Missy, and Tate was a total pushover. It didn't take long for Emm to bring out the nuanced nature of these characters outside their spoiled brat and hopeless idealist archetypes.

This book is brilliantly plotted with a great story arc that kept me hooked and wanting to know what would happen next the entire time (I read it in a single day). I ended up really wanting Tate to create a new, happy life and keeping Missy on the straight tracks. While at first I couldn't explain how Tate could possibly be friends with someone as vapid...

For some reason I thought this would be a wacky fun read, but there were areas that were definitely not lighthearted. At times I didn't know whether to be offended or just see the positives in the book. I definitely rolled my eyes a lot. As for the characters...I liked some of them and disliked just as many.

Meet Tate. Overall, I liked her, but there was definitely a time or two in this book where I sat there completely baffled how she could be so clueless. Tate is a nurse married to an attorney. She is a strong woman, for the most part. She is attractive, loyal, and pretty straight forward....most of the time. Her best friend is Missy. Missy on the other hand is a piece of work. Not completely irredeemable, but damn, she came close. It was amazing that two very different women could be friends. Missy and Tate met in college under extreme circumstances. Since then, they have been steadfast friends. Although Tate did not grow up on the wrong side of the... Read more
