On the morning of her wedding, Lillian White awakes with a hangover from hell, a naked stranger and no recollection of the previous night. As her eyes become focused the panic sets in as the once intimate, romantic Bridal Suite resembles the aftermath of a wild, drunken party. Unread messages flood her inbox from her soon Husband-to-be but with only hours to spare, can she still go through with the wedding?
This is such a a fun and relatable debut from Karen Kelly and I thoroughly enjoyed being part of Lillian White’s journey through friendships, relationships and life in general. It’s a roller coaster journey full of laughs and some real tender moments too.
Lillian is a relatable character and if you don’t identify with her strongly then it’s likely you know a friend or relative who does. Her dilemmas and choices will resonate with a variety of ages. I love that she’s so down to earth, not overly glamorous and a size and shape most women will identify with. Her relationship with her friends is brilliant too. Each of her friends has a different personality and brings something different to the group which heavily reminded me of my own friendship group.
The writing style is light and easy to read which makes this the perfect novel to sit in the garden with, by the pool (if you’re lucky) or to snuggle up in bed with. There are plenty of snort out loud moments throughout and I couldn’t stop reading until I had found out where the journey as heading.
A thoroughly enjoyable and fun read.
