    Prized and stored away for safekeeping, the timeless ivory wedding dress, with its scooped neck and cleverly fitted bodice, sits gently folded in its box, whispering of Happily Ever Afters. To Kendra, Brianna, and Lauren it?s a reminder of what could have been, the promise of a fairy...

    I enjoyed this latest novel of Wendy Wax. I liked the author angle, plus the angst of falling out with your best friend. Mother / daughter relationships also feature. All the main characters are flawed, in a very realistic, relatable way. ...

    I've read quite a few of Wendy Wax's books over the last few years and I'm going to tell you, that my personal opinion is that this is the best one to date. It hits all the marks of a great read, from characters with depth and feeling to life issues that we can all see a bit of ourselv...

    A review copy of this book was provided by Berkley Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review. I requested this book on NetGalley mostly because the concept sounded so interesting - it focuses on a wedding dress that has been passed through many generations of weddings and...

    I am a big fan of Wendy Wax?s books. This book fits my unplanned theme of reading wedding related book but isn?t your usual contemporary about a wedding; and of course there isn?t?it is written by Wendy Wax. To be honest, I thought the beginning was a bit slow paced but it d...

    This story of two authors was fascinating. The mechanics and business end of writing books was enlightening. The friendship between them was damaged. Finding their way back was wonderful. Family, romance and life choices all play an important role. I was riveted and didn't put it down ...

    Wow! Couldn't put this one down! So much going on, sometimes that annoys me, but not here. I loved the characters, setting, just everything. I thought the secret she was hiding would be different, but the real secret was better. I'm not into spoilers, so I'll close this with my recom...

    My Ex-Best Friend's Wedding is infinitely better than Best Beach Ever by great leaps and bounds. The characters each have a depth of their own and one they share with each other. Though it may be perceived as simple, My Ex-Best Friend's Wedding is complex and rich, for, through, and...

    This was a nice, if typical, chick lit beach story. I didn't care much for either Bree or Lauren. Lauren was selfish and bitchy and Bree was a dopey pushover . An awful lot of inside the publishing world stuff as well as author's writing processes... My favorites were Kendra and Jake, ...
