Maddie Fraser has never been anything other than the girl in the background: golden boy Dan’s little sister, crazy Shona’s minion, workaholic Sebastian’s ex and now she’s also the girl in the middle of her warring best friends. Lauren has announced she’s getting married – just as Sarah’s husband asks her for a divorce. Nothing in Maddie’s career in event organising has prepared her for this particular combo of planning and real pain. The news that her ex is also tying the knot is the final straw. While the magazines say she should be leaning in, all she wants to do is sleep in. But whether she likes it or not, everything is about to change for Maddie. For better or worse, this grown-up bridesmaid is taking centre stage…
I am a huge fan of Lindsey’s work so when I heard there was a new book I immediately preordered it. I read this back in May when it was published but for some reason I never wrote a review.
Maddie has been asked to be her friends bridesmaid and she gives her a journal to complete. The book is written through this journal, like a diary which I rather enjoyed. Maddie is an events organiser and of course Lauren decides to capitalise on that and get Maddie to organise her wedding…except it’s in Maddie’s spare time….for free….
Maddie’s other friend Sarah, also a bridesmaid, is getting divorced and tbh I can’t think of a worse situation to be in. Lauren and Sarah are at opposite ends of the scale and poor Maddie is stuck in the middle trying to keep the peace.
Maddie is also up for promotion at work and does everything she can to prove she should get the job. As well as all of this…Maddie has some love interests which provide some amusing tales in her journal.
This is a great chicklit read that will have you craving for more.
