GoodReads Summary:
All Faith Harp wants is a quiet life – to take care of her troubled brother, Sam, earn enough money to stop the wolves snapping at her heels, and to keep her past buried as deep as possible. And after years of upheaval, she might have just about managed it: she’s engaged to the gorgeous and successful Perry is holding down a job, and Sam’s latest treatment seems to actually be working this time. But, for Faith, things never seem to stay simple for long. Her domineering mother-in-law-to-be is planning a nightmare wedding, including the wedding dress from hell. And the man who killed her mother is released from prison, sending her brother tumbling back into mental illness. When secretly planning the wedding she really wants, Faith stumbles across a church choir that challenges far more than her ability to hold a tune. She ends up joining the choir, led by the fierce choir-mistress, Hester, who is determined to do whatever it takes to turn the motley crew of women into something spectacular. She also meets Dylan, the church’s vicar, who is different to any man she has ever met before.

My Review:
Faith Harp seems to lead more than one life. At work as a waitress, she's organized and is considered the best there is. She's very much in demand in the temp business. In her personal life, she seems to pick up people without trying. She picked up Marilyn sitting in the HCC meeting. Now Marilyn's her best friend. She and Marilyn pick up the choir when they go to Grace Chapel to see if it would be suitable for Faith's wedding. The women in the choir become very close friends. She meets Dylan, the handyman at the church, who turns out to be more than a handyman. They turn into really good friends, too! 

Then there is the "emergency response" she does for her brother. Her brother has become totally dependent on her with his alcohol and drug addictions. And now her fiance's money for rehab. Sam, her brother, has panic attacks, too. And a new girlfriend named April. And, of course, April and Faith become good friends and April joins the choir.

Sounds like quite a life, right? Well, she is marrying a very rich man. That would be Perry. His mother is Larissa. Larissa and Faith do not become friends, ever. And then there is the Ghost Web. Faith's name for Larissa's wedding gown, which she has given to Faith to wear for her wedding. Faith and the Ghost Web don't become good friends, either. In fact, no one but Larissa and her husband, who will do anything to keep her happy, like the Ghost Web. 

Faith is so busy responding to Sam, being best friends with Marilyn, singing with the choir, keeping track of Sam, and working as a temp waitress for events, that Perry sort of gets lost in the shuffle. A neglected fiance? And then the past rears its ugly head. Who is Rachel?

Grab some ice tea and settle into your chair. This is a great summer read! Maybe you and Faith will become good friends!
