I enjoyed the unique background for this romance. The two main characters are from families that own Las Vegas wedding chapels. And they are right next to each other, and the families are feuding.
The owner of The Rose of Sharon Wedding Chapel is Holly's grandfather. At the beginning of the story, he has just died, and surprisingly has left the chapel to Holly to "save." You see, The Rose of Sharon is about to go bankrupt. So 16-year-old Holly puts everything she has into saving the chapel, with the help of her parents, her brother, and friends.
Holly's grandfather also left her a letter to give to Dax. It turns out Dax is the grandson of the owner of the competing wedding chapel. They slowly get to know each other and begin a romantic relationship behind the backs of their families.
The Chapel Wars is cute. It has some predictable parts, but it's easy to read, and the plot keeps moving. I was intrigued by the business aspects of running a wedding chapel. Something I really hadn't even thought about before.
The Chapel Wars is an entertaining contemporary romance that I'm sure will be very popular among my teen girls.
