Nora Dervan is ready for her dream Happy Ever After – a gorgeous wedding with fiancé Harry waiting for her at the altar, surrounded by friends and family. But with her four bridesmaids hiding more secrets than bottles of champagne, her big day is in danger of being remembered for all the wrong reasons!

Four bridesmaids vying to be the chief. Four secrets threatening to overshadow the Bride. Can Bea, Cleo, Daisy and Sarah come together for better, not worse, and help give their friend the wedding day of her dreams?

With her wicked sense of humour and refreshingly honest voice, Erin Lawless brings to the life the romance (and horrors!) of wedding season.

Thank you to HarperImpulse for my copy of this book via Netgalley. This is a wrap up of 4 short stories on these characters. I’m at that age where weddings are the thing. I have 3 this year and 2 hen dos, so this book is perfect for my life right now.

Nora has just got engaged and the story is the build up to the wedding and the day itself. The story is told from the women’s view and its about the four main events, the engagement party, finding the dress, the hen party and the day itself.

There were a lot of characters to get to know. Nora has a big friendship group as does the groom, Harry. Nora picked four bridesmaids, Cleo, Bea, Daisy and Sarah. Cleo was my favourite, especially Drunk Cleo. She was funny and didn’t take herself too seriously.

The Hen do was my favourite part of the book. I loved the fancy dress, the games and the presents. It’s really got me excited for the hen do’s I have this year.

Some of the chapters started with wedding anecdotes which I LOVED! They were so funny.

While there are some love interests in this book it is really a story of friendships.

This book is funny, romantic and real. From what I hear planning a wedding is stressful and Erin really captures all the elements of this process.

I loved Erin’s writing style and will definitely be reading more of her books soon.
