A CATERED AFFAIR
British chick lit at its funniest. Sharp-witted humor with warm, breathing characters keep the story rolling. This unique love story begins with the wedding, and ends with finding love. While you wouldn’t expect a book about being left at the altar to be humorous and lighthearted, Margolis finds a way.
Is there anything more shocking than being left at the altar? Tallulah works on recovering from being jilted in the most heinous of ways while her lesbian sister tries to have a baby, her eccentric mother becomes more impossible and her grandmother is determined to find her a new husband. Along the way, Tallulah learns a lot about herself and her family, and that her idea of the perfect husband wasn’t so perfect, but that a happy ending may still be in her future.
