THE WEDDING PARTY
Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance
Charlene Dugan was happy with her life. She had a job she loved, family and friends that kept her busy, and a boyfriend who fits perfectly into her self-created idyll. Then one day, her mother is found wandering around a parking lot, disoriented. Her daughter, in a typical whining fit, says she doesnt want to end up like Charlene, and her ex-husband accuses her of being afraid of commitment.
Whats a girl to do? She proposes to her boyfriend and sets a course of action that might just bowl her over. Her best friend and maid of honor is being wooed by a much younger man. Her mother is fighting help at every turn and her daughter seems to be self-destructing. To top this off, her groom-to-be seems more interested in planning with the wedding planner than actually being married to her. No wonder her ex-husband is starting to look better and better.
Ms. Carr tells an enjoyable tale. Despite the fact that it takes a while to set up this story, once it gets going theres plenty of fun. (Oct., 384 pp., $5.99)
