Ava O’Hara seems to have it all . . . She has a great job, a long-term relationship and the promise of a wedding on the horizon. But her fiancé has other plans, and Ava’s not part of them.
On the big day itself, she’s forced to flee the ruins of her best life. Ava needs help, and fast. Who knew that a trio of old friends, two roguish strangers in an ice-cream van and one handsome French man would turn out to be the best emergency bride squad ever?
A brilliantly funny, wise and warm-hearted story of love, friendship and freedom by BFFs, Caroline and Lisa.
What I liked:
There are some really great humorous parts to this book. It’s a very light read, and super quick. Perfect beach reading, and the ideal accompaniment to your holidays this summer.
You’ll utterly love Ava, Cate and Lauren. Everyone deserves loyal mates like Cate and Lauren, and they’re a girl gang to be reckoned with. You’ll also find solace in them if you and your friends constantly bicker with each other.
What I didn’t like:
I was a little confused by Stefan, the French man, spelling his name in the German style.
I also felt the storyline never really picks up throughout the book, and the pacing is a little slow throughout. It’s a good book, but I felt it dragged a lot.
Out of five:
Three. A good story, some really interesting characters, but a couple of pacing issues out me off a little.
