Sometimes the best man isn’t even in the wedding party.
Gavin Greene is a hopeless romantic. He’s also a professional one: He writes the wedding column for a Pulitzer Prize-winning newspaper, covering spectacular parties from coast to coast. But there’s a thin line between being a hotshot reporter on assignment and being a single guy alone on a Saturday night at someone else’s wedding.
Everything changes on New Year’s Eve when Gavin meets Melinda, a travel writer with enchanting dimples. A moonlit stroll across a Manhattan rooftop seals the deal - until an Aussie with an attitude swoops in and whisks her away before Gavin gets her number.
Gavin crisscrosses New York City to find her again and learns that there’s something worse than losing the woman of his dreams: having to write an article about her wedding.

Like a trip to the dentist!
The Wedding Beat was well written, although, somewhat painful to read...Kind of like a trip to the dentist. The agony...I would have preferred a bandaide being ripped off! At lease the pain would have been short-lived. This poor guy struggled more than he should have. Life is just not that complicated.
I have not listened to Peter Berkrot prior to this. He has a nice voice and I liked his performance.
This was an experience that I would not recommend, and would not revisit.
I really tried
