...Wedding planner and single: what a recipe for office gossip! A funny and entertaining diary of disasters, great for an evening read....

Wedding planner and single: what a recipe for office gossip! Tyler has to combine the the stress of planning a wedding everyday with knowing hers isn’t even on the charts. Her best friend moved across country, her ex dumped her for space and married someone else a month later, and she’s avoiding her family like the plague because her mother is desperate for grandchildren and thinks “available” is the only criteria a man needs. Meanwhile most of her friends’ relationships are falling apart – but they are still desperate to get her into one…

This diary of disasters is absolutely hilarious in places. It is not just the weddings where things go dreadfully awry. Her dating life – the bubble bath fiend, the date who forgot to mention his wife, etc. – is a similar mess. When the man she meets ‘forgetting’ he’s still married is not the worst thing that happens on their date, you know you’re in for a treat. Her cold-blooded British boss is a delight throughout: imagine “The Devil wears Prada” and now imagine the boss from hell likes you…and is still utterly terrifying.

Laugh out loud funny in places, it is a book I read with a smile most of the way through. I got a little annoyed with her when her ex comes back into the picture. Is “Get lost” really so hard to say? Even written from her point of view, what comes across plainly is that when it comes to him, Tyler has no spine and no self-respect (and really needs to learn to stand up to her mother). Still, everyone has their weaknesses, and the rest of the book makes up for it. The ending is predictable from early on, but that doesn’t really harm the story.

This isn’t Bridget Jones’s Diary: it’s funnier, and most of the club enjoyed it, regardless of age or gender. Wry and sensitive observations on people are combined with the farce that weddings can be, and that her love life certainly is. There’s a fair bit of adult humour, and it is not for kids although the older end of YA might enjoy it.

Overall, it’s a funny and entertaining diary of disasters, great for an evening read.

  • The Old Dog and The Doorstep
    If you are a fan of Coward or Wodehouse this will be right up your street.
  • Kung Fu Carp Fishing
    An absolutely hilarious guide to fishing, perhaps useful for fishermen, definitely entertaining to everyone. I fully recommend this. Now I'm going to read it again.
  • The Probability Machine
    A good, relaxing story, although it's very short - a ten minute read for most. It is a coffee-break read but it is a fun one.

I laughed like mad. This was fantastic, and the weddings were great, and so realistic. What a day job, and what a read!

I take it means that it's better then the J-Lo Wedding Planner movie.

*I take it means that it's better then the J-Lo Wedding Planner movie.*It has nothing to do with the movie, aside from two words in the title, and is very, very, funny. Let me put it this way: it is a book with romance that *Reader* recommends.

*Let me put it this way: it is a book with romance that *Reader* recommends.* *Reader* doesn't do romance...it's *that* good?
