An Event to Remember… or Forget

Sienna Harris is a girl with a plan. Her days of slaving away at Carrie’s Classic Events and More are numbered as she is on the brink of launching her own event planning company.

My review: An Event to Remember… or Forget by Melissa Baldwin


An Event to Remember… or Forget by Melissa Baldwin is a romantic comedy or chick lit. Some places the book took me I could see where it was taking me others was a surprise. The ending was a surprise but fit the book and had a good message and attitude. This was a clean read. I liked Sienna and her friends and co-workers for the most part. Some of the characters we were not supposed to like what they did.

Sienna Harris is a event planner. She is almost ready for her to take a risk and start her own company. I like that she is not working on her company while she is still at Carrie's Classic Events. She is waiting till after her biggest event goes off. Sienna has been dating Luke for ten months. Her friends don't like him.

Sienna and Luke are both tempted by different things. It is their choices what to do with the temptations. There always choices to be made about how we will act with good or bad events.

Sienna is making excuses for Luke's behavior with everyone. She ignores the red flags. Everyone had opinions about Sienna's choices. I like how she calls her parents as sounding board. I was rooting for things to go right again in her life.

You get drawn into Sienna Harris life and what is going on with her friends. The cookies her roommate makes made me want to try some.
I would read another book by Melissa Barton in the future.

I received this ebook for free and In return I agreed to give honest review and be part of An Event to Remember or Forget blog tour.

Excerpt #2-

“Sienna, I want you to meet some of my co-workers. Ladies,

this is Sienna Harris. She is the genius behind all of this,” says Abby, coming

toward me.

“Do you have any business cards?” asks the first woman.

“Yes, I do! I am still with Carrie’s Classic Events and

More, but I am launching my own company very soon,” I say as I hand out a few


All of a sudden, I feel like I am being chased by the

paparazzi. They all start talking at once; questions are flying at me from

every direction.

“You work for the Carrie Anderstone?”

“Is it true what they say about her?”

“Does she still run that company?”

“I have heard some crazy stories.”

“I heard she had an affair with the mayor at his son’s

graduation party. Were you at that event? Did you see anything?”

“How much plastic surgery has she really had?”

“Do you get along with her?”

“Where does she travel to so much?”

I’m not sure how to answer their questions. This is not the

first time I’ve been asked all about the sordid details of Carrie’s life. I

quickly decide to handle it in the best way I know how . . . I lie and change

the subject.
