Publisher's Summary

Every Hungarian grandma knows that words have power. Nana Salo never meant the words she said in anger to become a family curse, but that's just what happened. Her granddaughter Vancy is just the newest victim. Vancy's fiance has left her at the altar, and now the press is after a hot grandma-curses-granddaughter's-wedding story.

Vancy doesn't believe in the Salo Family Wedding Curse, but when her groom ditches her and the press is hot on her heels, she's not quite so sure anymore. She's hiding out with Matt Wilde, owner of the Everything Wilde landscaping business, helping out with his two newly-inherited nephews as she figures out what to do.

Matt doesn't believe in curses either, but he seems cursed with thoughts of Vancy Salo that he just can't seem to shake.

A hoard of reporters, a guilty grandma, a gaggle of other family members, and two four-year-olds prone to stealing hearts and wreaking havoc: it's not exactly a classic situation for falling in love...but that's just what may be happening for Vancy and Matt.

Lighthearted Romantic Story

This is one of those feel good short romances that is great for an afternoon pick me up. Definitely a fun read but with absolutely no sex. This is my first romance book with a bit of Hungarian culture and I really liked how it played into the story.

Carly did a good job narrating. This was an enjoyable listen.

This was worth the price I paid.

Love it!

Great story from beginning to end. I loved the extended family and how crazy they all seem. I can't wait to hear the rest of the series.

Audio skips like old, scratched records.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I'm only a third of the way through the book. I have to keep going over the chapters again because the audio skips so badly. I am visually impaired, so this is extremely frustrating.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I haven't been able to hear enough to enjoy the book.

What didn’t you like about Carly Robins’s performance?

Words are repeated or skipped throughout the book.

Was Everything but a Groom worth the listening time?

I think the book would be worth reading, but don't purchase the audio.

Any additional comments?

Since Audible posts reviews at its discretion, I'm certain it won't be posted. Too bad, sellers should back their products.

Short but fun.

A sweet romance with entertaining characters, told well by a great narrator. This looks like the start of a fun series.
