Synopsis: The First I Do – September 15th, 2001 seemingly fit the category of an uneventful day for Maybelle Lloyd and Michael Hawkins, but unbeknownst to them, it was one of the most important days of their lives.
Thirteen years later, the two teenagers are met with the shocking discovery that on that day, they promised before God to be wed till death do they part! Who in their right mind would allow a pair of toddlers to wed? Yet, when they learn it was done with the intent to just be ceremonial for Michael’s terminally ill mother, it begins to click. Somehow, it was legally recognized, and now, the two teens are met with the question, do they honor the promise they made as children, or do they annul it?
Review: This was such a sweet read. The writing was absolutely so sweet and the characters adorable. Absolutely a book you want to read when you’re feeling bad.
My only issue is that there wasn’t much plot wise, but it was a solid, mild romance novel for those who prefer books that aren’t graphic or who prefer “clean” (I hate that term) reads.
Verdict: A sweet book
