Single, coupled-up or married, this laugh-out-loud summer read is the perfect anecdote for the wedding season!
Rebecca has chosen the most luscious, five tiered, wedding cake. The engagement ring that she has selected is celebrity inspired. The wedding singer is on speed dial. He doesn’t usually do Michael Bolton, but as it’s for a first dance he’ll make an exception. Father Maguire is checking dates for the parish church as we speak. The deposit on the white sand honeymoon is paid for in full on Barry’s card. She has fallen for an ivory lace couture gown that is to die for. The down payment may require her to sell a left kidney, but it will be worth it. Isn’t that why you have two?
There’s one teeny tiny problem. It’s nothing, really. No need to panic! It’s just that Barry has yet to propose. Says he’s not ready! He can be a bit of a kill joy that way. It’s time to face the harsh reality – Rebecca is a bride without a groom!
A witty yet surprisingly poignant romp through the inevitable issues arising from bridezilla moments, especially when these start prior to an engagement…
Rebecca is so hell-bent on marriage that she’s overwhelming her boyfriend, Barry, and the inevitable breaks lead to some hilarious (and some less so) antics on both sides.
Firmly in Barry’s camp (I’ve never understood the whole overboard thing), I still found this funny, realistic and oh-so-lively. Brilliant fun.
I’ve heard of this book a few times. I should check it out.
This definitely sounds like my kind of book – such a good holiday read!
