Altared Plans by Rebecca Talley

The perfect day. The perfect marriage. The perfect groom. WHAT COULD GO WRONG?
Caitlyn has been preparing for her perfect wedding all her life. But when her fiancé abandons her at the altar, Caitlyn vows she’ll never love again.
Going to BYU doesn’t make that easy, however, and avoiding all social contact can only last so long. When her bishop calls her to be the “mom” of her family home evening group, Caitlyn is suddenly thrust into surprising circumstances that leave her flustered with the attention of two unwanted suitors.
Travis, the FHE “dad,” has plans to woo Caitlyn by using his cowboy charms, while Chase has his own ideas for dating her. Will Travis or Chase change her mind about love? Or will it be déjà vu?
Follow Caitlyn through all the flirtatious looks, dates, ex-girlfriends, and unexpected surprises. Altared Plans is a light-hearted romance that is sure to please.
Rebecca lives in rural Colorado with cats, a dog, a spoiled horse, goats, and a llama named Tina. She and her husband, Del, are the proud parents of 10 multi-talented and wildly creative children.
She is the author of a children's picture book, Grasshopper Pie (WindRiver 2003), and two LDS novels, Heaven Scent (Cedar Fort 2008) and Altared Plans (Cedar Fort 2009). She has also authored numerous stories and articles for children's magazines.

Have a wonderful Monday,


  1. Talk about an uncomfortable situation!! But if I was ever faced with such a dilemma, I would have to face it head on. I'd have to talk to him face to face, and say my peace. I wouldn't be able to live with myself otherwise.

  2. Depends on what had happened that I ended up not wanting to get married. If had done something to hurt me really bad I would just text him and let him know me and my girlfriends were off on the honeymoon and to have a nice life. But if I was just having second thoughts and he was a good guy I would have to confront him face to face.

  3. Wow, Definitely face to face! How could you go that far, and then not have the decency to? I can't possibly imagine how it would feel to go through either side of a wedding day gone wrong.
    This sounds like a great book, I can't wait to read. I've never seen a trailer for a book, great idea!

  4. I put it on face book.

  5. Also blogged about it.

    and I want my extra point to go to "My son John". Thanks

  6. Kind of a silly question, but fun to think about! I'm such a wimp if I got that far I'd probably end up getting married just out sheer embarrassment! And that is definitely not the thing to do!

  7. I would definitely send my mother!

  8. I would maybe call them and say the way I felt. I would not just leave my mom to do all the dirty work.

  9. I'm terrible at confrontations so I would probably make a phone call!

  10. Ha, Karen, I love it! My mom would probably do it! Especially if they didn't like the person you were marrying.

  11. Ooh, that's hard to say... I think I'd have to visit him.

  12. Thanks, Cami, for featuring my book in your fun giveaway!

    PS It's loosely based on my courtship with my husband (I really did meet my future mother-in-law while wearing a . . . well, you'll just have to read the book to find out) :).

  13. That would be one of the hardest things in the world to do but it would probably be the bravest thing in the world to do as well. I would do it because I would want to see the other person's face. I would need them to see mine as well.

    I am fortunate that I haven't had this happen in my life.

  14. yikes, I would meet him face to face to be fair. Unlike my first dh who called me on the phone the night of my sister's wedding rehearsal and said our marriage was off and he wouldn't be singing at the wedding the next day. I wished he would have come face to face with me.


  15. Oh, Robyn. I am so sorry. I pray you are doing well now.

  16. Thanks, Rebecca for giving your book away. I can't wait to read it and see what you were wearing when you met your future m-i-l!

    You're so right, Suburban prep. Thinking about this has made me very grateful for my husband and our fun and very quick courtship!

  17. I couldn't imagine leaving someone at the altar. I would probably just go through with it and divorce afterwards, lol.

  20. I'm with you Lee-Ann! Thanks for sharing the contest.

  21. Well,I never would do that! But I guess if I did, I would probably have a heart-to-heart with the poor guy.

  22. LOL, Rebecca. I'm just glad to have all of that behind me!

  23. If this would have happened to me I believe I would try to find the courage to confront my man.
