Maddie and Sally have only one thing in common – they both love the same man!

Beth is a newly single mum with a mystery baby daddy. Surely the father isn’t someone the girls all know?

And then there’s Jane, the glue holding them all together, but being dumped doesn’t make her the happiest bridesmaid…especially with gorgeous flatmate Freddie complicating things.
Will the bride say, ‘I Do!’? Or will her bridesmaids save the day…and find love along the way?
The most hilarious, feel-good rom com of the year

Thank you to Rachel for letting me take part in this tour. and to HarperImpulse for my copy of this book. I loved Zara’s last two books so I was excited to read this book.

Sadly I didn’t enjoy this one as much. There were some really funny bits in this book most of them towards the end of the book. The beginning of this book was good. I found it dipped in the middle but really picked up at the end.

I found the main character rather annoying, to be honest. I wanted to shake her and tell her to ditch her boss, see how perfect Freddie was and that he was quite clearly in love with her. Jane had a habit of taking 2 and 2 and coming up with 5. I found this so frustrating. I just wanted to tell her to stop and listen before assuming things.

I loved Freddie. Freddie is everything you need in a man. He is supportive, kind, caring and just damn well amazing. Freddie was the shining star in this book IMO.

As for the bridesmaids, I loved Maddie. I wanted to give her a big hug and Sal needed putting in her place. I think deep down she might just need to be loved but she does not go about it in the right way

This was an okay read with some funny parts but sadly it wasn’t my favourite book by Zara. I wanted to love this book, I really did but something just didn’t click.
