Summary taken from Goodreads:

After returning home from teaching English at a refugee camp in the Philippines, Samantha Bravencourt enjoys her quiet life working at her mother's clothing boutique in Falls Church, Virginia. When she receives an invitation to a wedding in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, she looks forward to reconnecting with her college friend. Instead her life collides with Carson, a fellow teacher and the man who broke her heart, and a young Amerasian refugee named Lien who needs Samantha and Carson's help to find her mother before Lien's own wedding. When the search for Lien's mother reveals surprising secrets from the past, Samantha must reevaluate her own memories and decide whether to continue to play it safe or take a risk that could change her life.

    The Wedding Invitation begins rather slowly however I recommend sticking with the book.  The novel goes back and forth describing the life of Samantha Bravencourt when she worked as a teacher in the Philippines in 1983 and her present life working in her mother’s clothing boutique.  Samantha receives a wedding invitation to attend the wedding of an old friend, however, things don’t  go as planned.  The wedding takes place in North Carolina the home of her Aunt and where she meets an old boyfriend from her days in the Philippines.  The rest of the story revolves around many enjoyable characters, such as the borders in her Aunt’s home, a couple of her past students, her old boyfriend and her mom.   I recommend reading this book.
