REVIEW for Bridesmaids


A thank you goes out to Jane Costello for so kindly sending me her book to review!
TITLE: Bridesmaids
AUTHOR: Jane Costello
GENRE: Chick Lit
RATING: 4 Stars
Nobody does chick lit better than the UK authors! I mean, it is, after all the birth place of Bridget Jones!In Bridesmaids, author Jane Costello hits the spot right on - describing the madness and the overall silliness of weddings, brides, bridesmaids and falling in love.
The opening chapter of this book is hilarious! We have a godzilla bride and a perfect storm of "Murphy's Law" coming together to create a series of funny, funny episodes that had me hooked from the first chapter.We meet Evie who is our commitment phobic bridesmaids - she just does not get what all the fuss is about - but she is about to get a very good idea as she literally bumps into Jack..
As the story develops, we get to know Evie and I started to understand where some of her commitment issues were coming from. Although this book is a definite chick lit (yeah!) it is suprisingly touching and the Jack character is a wonderfuly addition.
Will Evie finally overcome her fear of marriage? and actually stick through a relationship? My lips are sealed.But Bridesmaids is a clever, wonderfully funny book and I am thrilled to have discovered it

I agree with you about the fact that UK authors seem to write chick lit the best. I am always drawn to them. Great review. Another book to add to my to buy pile.

Just seeing the cover makes me think the book would be hilarious.

Tina, you took the words right out of my mouth. Very cute cover! I'm definitely going to get this book. Had I not read your review I'd get it for the cover alone!

Have you seen that show Bridezillas? It is unbelievable that people actually behave like that. However, it is funny and this book sounds to be hilarious as well!
