    An idea I have always loved is the whole Message in a Bottle theme. The one where you write a message and put it in the ocean with the hopes that someone will find your message and write back to you. So when I came across this series, I knew I had to read them all. The Beach Bride Series follows twelve women who originally met on Facebook as they all belonged to the same online book group. This part resonated with me as years ago I was a member of a Facebook book group called BA, and recently I got to meet when I attended RT a number of the authors and other members of the group after all these years. Meg is from a small town called Alma and works as a theater director for their hometown. She once had dreams of being an actress on Broadway but decided she didn't want to be burned again. When the women met for the first time as a fun activity, they decided to write a letter describing their perfect man. Meg returns home and forgets about the letter until a phone call from a guy named Elliott. He has found her letter and wants her to come and be the star of his dating reality TV show "One True Love." Meg who is anti- acting refuses, but when he makes an offer to help save her small town theater, she reluctantly accepts. One thing leads to another and Meg finds herself on a Bachelorette-type dating show. Will she find her perfect man amongst the ten contestants or will love throw her a different path and her man be waiting on the sidelines till after the show?Find out in Book #1 Beach Bride Series - Meg by Julie Jarnagin today. A nice cozy Summer romance read.

    This book starts the Beach Brides series. And it starts it out with a bang! The series is about twelve friends who have met online and decide to get together in the Caribbean. While there, they write notes to their perfect heroes, put them in bottles and toss them out to sea. Meg is the first to have her message found.I loved this book! I smiled and laughed through the whole thing. Elliot came into Meg’s life like a force of nature and wouldn’t take no for an answer. I loved the way Meg held her own and made sure she got what she wanted out of the deal. Her reactions to the contestants on the show, and her thoughts about the whole thing were great. She was very real about it all.I really liked Meg! She is so loving and caring. I really admired the depth of her feelings for her family, and also for the people involved with the theater and those in her community.I wasn’t completely sure about Elliot at first. He really came on strong and was very sure of himself. It didn’t take long, though, for me to really like him and start rooting for him to get the girl. Meg really seemed to bring out the best in him, which was so neat to see.This was such a cute story! And written so well! I was drawn in immediately and finished the book in a day. It really did start the series out right! I love the whole idea behind this series! I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the books throughout the summer.I received a copy of the book, which I voluntarily reviewed. I have given my honest opinion.

    I'm enjoying the Beach Bride series. The premise is that twelve online book club friends meet up for vacation in the Caribbean. One night they decide to write letters to their dream man and throw them into the ocean. I have really loved seeing what each heroine thought to write in her letter.Meg's bottle finds itself in the hands of a producer for a reality dating show. His contestant has dropped out, and he sees this as fate. After a lot of persistence, Meg agrees to be on the show. The more she gets to know Elliott (the producer), the more she wishes she had never agreed to do the show, because he's not one of the contestants.This book reminded me of an ABC Family movie that aired around 2004 called I Want to Marry Ryan Banks (later retitled and released to DVD as Reality of Love). Reality TV show: check. Heroine falls for the wrong guy: check. Incredibly cute/cheesy and just makes you sigh with happiness: check.This was a great start to the series, and had me going back to Amazon to check out what bottles were being thrown out next. My other favorite so far is Jenny. Go check them out!Content: clean (some kissing)

    Meg is the first installment to the fun and all new Beach Brides series. I just love how it begins with Meg and Elliot's story. Such a sweet, clean, short read. Looking forward to the rest of the series. 5 stars I received this book from the author, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

    Meg by Julie Jarnagin is the first book in the brand new Beach Brides series which features twelve friends who are all die hard romantic women each with a painful heartbreaking past who, on a dare while drunk, throw one bottle each with a message inside it for their dream hero.Meg as the title suggests is the story of one of these twelve women, Meg Mullen, who works in the community theatre in her small town. The theatre is on the verge of closing due to lack of funds but help comes in the form of Television Producer, Elliot Campbell who finds Meg's bottle with the message and thinking her to be the perfect contestant for his reality show offers her the job. Reluctant but forced by her love for her theatre, she agrees and so begins a fun filled ride towards true love which had me laughing, reaching out for popcorn and ignoring all work as I stayed glued to my couch eagerly turning pages until the end.I am a hopeless romantic and who doesn't love the mystery and romance that a message in a bottle presents! As soon as I read the blurb for this series, I knew I had to read all the books. Despite being part of a series, each book is a standalone novella and can be read separately out of order as I did. I read the second book, Tara first and then jumped to this one.Being a person who doesn't enjoy reality dating shows and refrain from watching any, I loved how Julie Jarnagin easily had me sucked into the pretentious world of such shows where everything is preplanned so as to garner the highest TRP ratings. The writing is witty, engaging and fluid. I enjoyed each second spnet reading this book and will be checking out the other books by Julie Jarnagin.Meg and Elliot's romance is both exciting and so realistic. There are no explicit scenes which makes it a book suitable for all age groups. I loved the emotional appeal and the helpless feeling of knowing that they cant be together and yet craving and unable to stop from seeking each other's company is so beautifully brought out by the author. I didnt like Elliot at first but he slowly won my heart with his heart of gold and love for Meg. A true feel-good romance that will have you feeling the magic of true love, the cool ocean waves lapping at your feet and the warmth of the beach sun right in your drawing room. A perfect getaway from the chaos of every day, I wholeheartedly recommend Meg by Julie Jarnagin to all romance lovers and look forward to reading lots more from the author in the future. 4.5 stars of 5 to it from me.I received an ARC for review and I am very thankful to the author. The above is my honest and unbiased review.

    ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ FOUR-STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ > > Judging a Book by it's Cover < < Sweet, Soft Romantic vibe. Bride has a slightly sad air about her. Synopsis sounds hopeful. > > Looking Deeper < < POV ~> Third-personMeg is struggling to keep the doors to her community's theater open when a TV producer contacts her about her message in a bottle he'd found only weeks after drunkenly tossing it to sea. While she dreamed of it reaching far off shores, the reality is it washed back up onto the same vacation island's beaches. Kind of symbolic for a girl that left small town, Oklahoma with dreams of making it big in NYC, only to wash out and come home one short year later. Now she's become a contestant on his reality dating show, but none of her bachelors are nearly as enticing as the show's producer. Elliot could be sweet and caring one minute, but manipulative and pushy the next. Meg was a sweet, small-town girl, but she held grudges and kept stereotyping Elliot by his career field. Their chemistry was good; interaction and dialogue were entertaining. The secondary cast was on par for their roles. The plot, overall, was enjoyable although the basic storyline has been done but Ms. Jarnagin managed to insert unique elements to freshen up the content. This was my first time reading this author and the pages flowed smoothly. It was a pleasurable read. Given the cropped length of the book, conflicts were resolved quite quickly and without too much fanfare. Predictability was average. The conclusion was satisfactory, implying a HEA is obtained, but no logistics provided. Overall, this series seems to promise some fun, light, and flirty reads perfect for a summer afternoon. .Rating: [G] ~ Score: 4.0 ~ Stars: 4==========================⭐ ⭐ **** Disclosure of Material: I received a copy of this book from the Author/Publisher with the hope that I would voluntarily leave unbiased and unsolicited feedback.

    This is the first book in the Beach Brides series written by a talented group of authors (most of whom are on my “must read” list.Twelve online friends from Romantic Hearts Book Club met for a vacation on Enchanted Island. At the end of their trip, they each threw a message in a bottle into the ocean addressed to their dream hero. Meg’s bottle is the first to be found, right back on the beach on Enchanted Island. Elliot has found Meg’s bottle and believes she is the answer to all of his problems – just not what she was expecting. It turns out that Elliot is a producer for a reality dating show that has just lost its female lead. He believes that Meg is perfect for the role. Meg is beautiful inside and out. Once he convinces her that, by being part of the show, she will be able to garner enough interest to save her beloved theatre, he only has one problem left. He has to find a way to keep his heart out of the equation. This was cute and sweet novella with a charming ending. It was well written with characters you want to see more of down the road. Having now read the first three books in the series, I can’t wait to read the rest of them. The novella length makes them perfect for a one-setting, relaxing read.*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and am voluntarily reviewing it.

    Book 1 of the Beach Brides series is a perfect beginning to a fun, sweetly romantic series.Meg Mullen runs a small community theater which is struggling to survive. Three weeks earlier, she'd taken a vacation to Enchanted Island where, along with some girlfriends, she had tossed a message in a bottle out to sea. She thought it was a silly joke. However, she gets a call from a man claiming to have found her bottle! Elliot Campbell is in crisis mode. The woman his reality TV show has chosen just quit. Now, he needs to find a replacement, and fast. When he finds a bottle with a note inside, he's convinced fate has dealt him a helping hand. Now, he simply has to convince her to come on the show. I enjoyed reading Meg's story. She seemed real and honest to me. She likes the guys she's supposed to be with, but only as friends. Elliot, however, is someone she could have real feelings for if only he weren't a producer and committed to his show. Elliot seemed like a guy in transition. On the one hand, he's got a show to produce and other people's jobs to consider. On the other hand, he's falling in love with Meg, which doesn't fit the narrative of the show. I encourage you to read it and find out what happens to them.Romance - PG - a few kissesLanguage - cleanMy rating - 5 stars.

    Meg (Beach Brides Series #1 )By: Julie JarnaginMeg is book one in the Beach Brides Series by Julie Jarnagin. Twelve authors got together and wrote twelve difference books for Beach Brides Series. All of these can be read as a stand-a-alone with no problems . I have read book one and book two and loved them both. Hoping to get to read the others. The author grabbed me right at the start and I was hooked.I love the story and the characters, both were well written and well developed. There were twelve women who formed an online book club called Romantic Hearts Book Club. All were on vacation in Caribbean Isle and all was dared to write a message and put it in a bottle and throw it into the sea. These women all had two things in common, they were romantic and all had been let down in love. Will all of their bottles be found? Meg’s bottle was found by a television producer. He thinks that Meg is just the women he has been looking for. Is she the right woman for Elliot and what does he have in mind?

    A book club of 12 women got together on the Enchanted Island and one night they decided to put what they felt were the qualities they wanted in their "dream Hero" in a bottle and throw it out to sea.Meg was the first one to hear back from her dream hero in the form of Elliott. He was a television producer and she has sworn that she no longer wanted anything to do with "people in the business" because of how things turned out for her in the past.Elliott comes into her life like a whirlwind. He is a hot television producer who does'nt take no for an answer.I received an Advanced Readers Copy of Meg and am voluntarily leaving this review. I have had the pleasure of being offered several of the stories in this series and I want to tell you if the rest of the series is anything like Meg and Tara then it will be an awesome series. I can't wait for them all to be released. A definite read for anyone who loves romance and believes dreams can come true. Your true "dream hero" is out there you just need a little help finding him sometimes.

    I enjoy anything written by Julie Jarnagin but when I read the synopsis for Meg: Beach Brides Series, I wasn’t sure that would be the case. I don’t usually enjoy reality television or books with it as the background. What a wonderful surprise, I loved it. I now look forward to where the other bottles come ashore in this Beach Brides Series. The story-line pulled me right into the plight of a small-town community theatre then kept me reading as Meg got on the plane to go to Enchanted Island. Never a dull moment in this book. I loved Meg Mullen and her gentle determination as well as Elliot Campbell positive persistent attitude. The plot takes a turn form what the way Elliot first plans but that is the delightfulness of this story. Oklahoma or Enchanted Island, either place is great for a Julie Jarnagin tale. The publisher through Net Galley provided a copy.

    A great way to begin summer! What's more fun than sending a message in a bottle as a "joke" and someone actually finding it??? This new series called Beach Brides looks like a winner! I very much enjoyed the first one about Meg. She's a hard working girl whose dreams of acting in New York fizzled badly so she ran back to her hometown in Oklahoma and has been directing community theater productions there. She's happy doing that until someone finds her message in a bottle that she never thought would be found! Suddenly she finds herself on a reality dating show and she really doesn't like it! I can totally sympathize with her! I would NOT like it either! When she falls for the wrong guy, just see what happens! You'll enjoys this book a lot and it's great summer reading! In fact, take it to the beach with you if that's an option!I highly recommend this fun, summer read!!!!!

    Meg is the first book in the Beach Brides series. Twelve members of the Romantic Hearts Book Club take a vacation to Enchanted Island in the Caribbean. On a dare they each write a message, put it in a bottle, and toss the bottle into the sea. Meg's bottle is found first and she agrees to be on a television show called True Love to help save the theater in tiny Alna, Oklahoma. This is a fun, lighthearted book that will make you laugh.I loved the character of Meg. She is strong and stands by what she believes in. She is also vulnerable from past experiences. You will have to read the book to see if Meg finds her One True Love or if a disaster has washed up on the shore. I received an advance copy of this book and I willingly chose to write an honest review.

    This easy to read message in a bottle book one is a great lead into more good reads.This authors descriptions of characters, places involved in the storyline where well written. I totally enjoyed the tug and pull between Elliot and Meg pulls you into this story. TV shows are stressful and a true heart prevails. So you'll need to read this story to find out what's happened. I'm on to book two can't wait to see what happens with this message in a bottle. What a great storyline for easy summer reads refreshing love stories I love them so much.

    Message in a bottle. Meg has sent one off in the hopes that true love will come calling. What came calling was a producer for a TV show. Elliot needed her to come on his show. She agrees to come on the show with the stipulation that he helps to revive that home town theater. She went on this show to find her true love. She laughed knowing that was never going to happen. But the unexpected happened. Instead of falling for one of the contestants, she fell for the producer. It seems message in a bottle will make for a good TV show. Fun quick read!

    A straightforward sweet romance novella. I really liked the "message in the bottle" concept that carries throughout the series of twelve books - some of the messages were funny, some heartfelt, but each one was unique and a great start to each individual story. With the exception of Ginny Baird, each author in the series is new to me. What initially caught my eye was the beautiful cover art.

    Meg This is the first book in the series of Beach Brides, I enjoyed it very much. I could see it being a Hallmark movie. Meg with some her friends leave a message in a bottle. Elliot finds it and wants her to be in the TV show One True Love. The book did have a couple of places that made me laugh. It was hard to quit reading once I started it. I had the opportunity to read an advanced copy of the book.

    Wishes in a bottle.On an island vacation Meg and her friends wrote their wishes, put them in bottles, and threw them in the ocean. Meg's bottle didn't make it off the island, when it was found by television producer Elliott. Seeing it as fate, he knew she would be perfect for his reality dating show. Against her better judgment Meg agrees to be on the show. Let the fun begin! This is a very good and enjoyable book, a good clean romantic comedy.

    Out of the bottle theme to this delightful series. Twelve friends from the Romantic Hearts Book Club have a Caribbean vacation together and each woman writes a message, places it in a bottle, and casts the bottle into the sea. Living on the shores of Lake Michigan, I can relate to a beach vacation. As an avid reader and book club participant, how fun to have 12 Book Club ladies looking for love. Enjoyable summer read.

    Meg: it was an interesting way of taking the story. Characters were fantastic and worked well together. Elliot was perfect for her and I loved how it ended. I loved that her dream and life was her theater in a small town. I liked that she took chances but really didn't want but it really worked out in the end. The author did a great job of writing it.

    A sweet, squeaky clean read. Unfortunately, this story was too rushed and underdeveloped. It needed to be at least 2/3 longer. Character development was extremely limited and storyline was predictable. A good effort but I wanted more. Okay for a quick read while on the beach or waiting for an appointment but I was happy to borrow it on KU without having to buy.

    Meg & Elliot 3.5 starsBachelorette show gone wrong when Meg falls for Elliot and not a contestant on the show. Novellas are short and sweet and can be read quickly. I like where this is going with the notes in a bottle.
