A winter wedding is what Ella has always dreamed of, especially growing up in Florida, and that is what she is about to get. This is her bridal week, and on New Year's Eve, she and Jay will be married in Williamsburg. Too bad her sister Edy isn't as enthusiastic about it as she is, in fact Edy is almost down right hostile about it. Auld Acquaintances is the story of weddings and family, brothers and sisters, parents and step parents, friends and more. Planning a wedding is stressful, but when it is the first time his family and her family meet, and the first time parents with new spouses are with former spouses, it can become hysterical. Thrown in a historical town and a ghost with a vendetta and you have the makings of a story with so many twists and turns that you will never know what is coming next. Author Adam Zorzi has created a current and modern story that pulls you in and keeps you engaged to the very end.

Auld Acquaintances is part wedding story, part ghost story, part family saga and part holiday story. It has a current feel, even mentioning the wedding dress as being designed by Christian Siriarno, winner of a recent Project Runway season. Author Adam Zorzi does a wonderful job of mixing a historical story about the past of a hotel and the ghost that haunts the place in with a modern wedding and a completely current family dynamic of parents and new spouses and old spouses, siblings and friends that all merge into one cohesive story. Although there is some adult themes between the soon to be married couple, the story overall is pretty clean and appropriate for most readers.
