Waiting On Wednesday: The Chapel Wars (Lindsey Leavitt)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Chapel Wars
Title: The Chapel Wars
Author: Lindsey Leavitt
Release Date: May 6, 2014
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Summary (from Goodreads):

Acclaimed author Lindsey Leavitt brings her trademark heart, humor, and romance to her hometown--Vegas.

Sixteen-year-old Holly wants to remember her Grandpa forever, but she’d rather forget what he left her in his will: his wedding chapel on the Las Vegas strip. Whatever happened to gold watches, savings bonds, or some normal inheritance?

And then there's Grandpa's letter. Not only is she running the business with her recently divorced parents, but she needs to make some serious money--fast. Grandpa also insists Holly reach out to Dax, the grandson of her family's mortal enemy and owner of the cheesy chapel next door. No matter how cute Dax is, Holly needs to stay focused: on her group of guy friends, her disjointed family, work, school and... Dax. No wait, not Dax.

Holly’s chapel represents everything she’s ever loved in her past. Dax might be everything she could ever love in the future. But as for right now, there's a wedding chapel to save.

Why I'm Looking Forward To ItThe last wedding I attended was in a small Vegas chapel, and I found the place fascinating. Setting a teen story/romance in one (or, more accurately, two)? Yes, please!

So what book are you waiting on?
