If I'm being honest, I can say that the only reason I picked up this book was because there was a pug on the cover. I'm such a sucker. Wedding Girl was so much better than expected, I was shocked! Normally when I crave a good light, chick lit read I'm annoyed when I'm done reading it, because it didn't really scratch the itch and ended up lame. Not the case with this one. So enjoyable.
My rating: 4 stars.
Summary from goodreads:
You’ve Got Mail meets Julie & Julia in the new foodie fiction from the author of Recipe for Disaster.
pastry chef Sophie Bernstein and her sommelier fiancé were set to have
Chicago’s culinary wedding of the year…until the groom eloped with
someone else in a very public debacle, leaving Sophie splashed across
the tabloids—fifty grand in debt on her dream wedding and one-hundred
percent screwed on her dream life. The icing on the cake was when she
lost her job and her home…
Laying low, Sophie moves in with
her grandmother, Bubbles. That way, she can keep Bubbles and her
sweater-wearing pug company and nurse her broken heart. But when Sophie
gets a part-time job at the old-fashioned neighborhood bakery, she finds
herself up to her elbows in dough and reluctantly giving a wedding cake
customer advice on everything from gift bags to guest accommodations.
Before she knows it, she’s an online wedding planner. It’s not mousse
and macarons, but it pays the bills. But with the arrival of unexpected
personal and professional twists, Sophie wonders if she’s really moving
forward—or starting over from scratch...
