Planning a wedding can be a trying experience…
A little prewedding anxiety is normal for every bride, and Manhattan attorney Brooke Miller isn't worried. She's got the loving support of the world's greatest guy, so planning her nuptials should be a piece of cake.
But that was yesterday.
Today, Brooke's landed her first big case and has just discovered that the opposing attorney is none other than her fiancé, Jack. But that's okay. These two professionals aren't going to let a little courtroom sparring get their legal briefs in a bunch.… Right? Wrong! Now Jack's pulling every dirty trick in the law books, and Brooke's starting to suspect that maybe he isn't the man she thought he was. Warring with her fiancé at work and at home, Brooke realizes that she'll have to choose between the case of her life, or actually having a life.
Charming voice, fun characters, crazy scenarios…exactly what I want in my chick-lit.
Brooke takes on her fiancé and his parents, her parents and a few assorted other characters in an attempt to dominate in a legal battle, get what she wants for her wedding gala, and still appear to be a sweet, glowing and enviable bride.
Is that too much to ask? Surely you don’t know Brooke if you think it is.
Reads a bit like a blend of fashion magazine, Idiot’s Guide to a Trial, gossip rag, young Jewish New Yorker’s guide to wedding kosherosity and angsty diary. Fun. Fun. Fun.
