TSBF has Lucy, an overplanner who thinks that she can project-manage her way to finding the most suitable mate after being dumped by her live-in lover on Skype (ouch). When her best friend has a destination wedding where the bridal party gathers at a resort for a week, she has her chance. In walks Miles, the complete opposite of what she thinks is ideal -- he's an enormous bear of a man, alpha to the core, but with a reasonableness and a skill with children that makes anyone (except Lucy, of course!) see that he's perfect.
The chemistry is right on pitch, and all the secondary characters are strong. As Lucy tries to make herself like Alex, her "perfect match" that isn't, we see Miles fall deeper for her. An incredibly hot beach sex scene changes everything, and Galway's world is so amazingly tangible that I hope like hell she does a sequel/spinoff/whatever. I laughed out loud so many times while reading, from the comic relief of some of Lucy's friends to Miles' way of dealing with wedding issues (he's the best man).
I think this is an undiscovered jewel of a book and can't stop recommending it to friends.
Lucy's had it with the people she loves abandoning her--first her mom and dad, and then her fiancé Dan. There is no way she's handing over her heart to Miles, even if he is beyond sexy and makes her heart pound right out of her chest. Lucy is convinced that Miles is wrong for her. Fawn and Miles conspire to prove Lucy otherwise.
This friends-caper is hilarious, filled with well-fleshed out characters and loads of poignant moments. Galway hits just the right note, peppering the reader with witty one-liners while placing the characters in unexpected situations. Think new-age wedding ritual where everyone is required to be nude - including the aging in-laws. Yikes!
Gretchen Galway writes clever, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy. I'm telling all my friends!
If that were the only down side to this book, I could look past it. But my biggest annoyance was the relationship with her "friends". Fawn (the model), Krista (the Charlotte), and Betty (the lesbian). Holy cow! How were these women friends. From the time they get together for the wedding it was all catty remarks, jealousy and just down right being MEAN to one another! It was really aggravating. I can see how some friends can act a little bit like that towards one another but honestly it seemed as these women couldn't stand one another. And when they had "moments" of friendship, it fell flat and didn't seem real. That really upset me and I couldn't get past that throughout the book. Maybe that's why I didn't really feel this book as something I could fully invest my interest in. Besides all that, there were just too many unfinished side stories. You're thrown around so much it was almost like following a pinball game. Yes, I said pinball. Just all over the place.
I try to be as upfront and honest in my reviews as possible. This is only my opinion and obviously not the only review. Take it for what it's worth, because there are others out there that found this to be an enjoyable read. I, unfortunately, wasn't one of them.
