Thought I would read this book about weddings on our 9th wedding anniversary. This is our wedding wall with our Ketubah, Simpsons pic, couples canvas and the one with dates and invitation shadow box.

❓ Do you have any keepsakes that you treasure from your wedding or other important event?

Though this book didn’t start off well for our MC being broken up with the day before her wedding. With the rest of the year full of weddings, she’s attending her friends have created challenges that she has to do at each.

Love good friends that try to distract and cheer you up even in the worst situations. There’s also her mom that’s been embarrassing her since she was young. The challenges were all designed to get her out of her head and to focus on a goal instead of her failed wedding.

The guy she met at the first wedding is in her extended friend group and he is also attending the other weddings. She keeps running into him and at first she was annoyed by him but they have more in common the more often their single selves get placed at the same table. She starts to look forward to him.

I liked the challenges and this was very funny. I love good banter then when it’s an inner monologue. Her slowburn relationship with Jamie was def worth the wait. It would’ve been to soon to start a new relationship right after she was jilted at the altern had to take her time.

Freya Scott is getting married. Her wedding to Matthew, her long-term boyfriend, is the first of eight in her calendar this year, and as someone who prides herself on being meticulously organized, Freya is intent on making it the perfect day to remember.

But when Matthew calls things off hours before they walk down the aisle, Freya’s entire life plan goes up in smoke. Humiliated and heartbroken, the last thing she wants is to attend a summer of other peoples’ nuptials on her own.

Fortunately, her friends have an idea: together they devise a series of outrageous challenges for Freya to complete at each event, designed to distract her from Matthew and what might have been. From getting stuck in an old church bathroom and needing to be rescued by the vicar to making out with a barman at a French chateau, Freya realizes that despite herself, she might just be having fun.

By the time the final wedding arrives, she will discover that the road to a happy ending sometimes has unexpected detours, that “I do” is only the beginning––and that perhaps her own love story isn’t over just yet.

Thank you stmartinspress and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
