bride without a groomSummary:

Single, coupled-up or married, this laugh-out-loud summer read is the perfect anecdote for the wedding season!

Rebecca has chosen the most luscious, five tiered, wedding cake. The engagement ring that she has selected is celebrity inspired. The wedding singer is on speed dial. He doesn’t usually do Michael Bolton, but as it’s for a first dance he’ll make an exception. Father Maguire is checking dates for the parish church as we speak. The deposit on the white sand honeymoon is paid for in full on Barry’s card. She has fallen for an ivory lace couture gown that is to die for. The down payment may require her to sell a left kidney, but it will be worth it. Isn’t that why you have two?

There’s one teeny tiny problem. It’s nothing, really. No need to panic! It’s just that Barry has yet to propose. Says he’s not ready! He can be a bit of a kill joy that way. It’s time to face the harsh reality – Rebecca is a bride without a groom!


I don’t think many books have actually made me laugh out loud, until recently when I received Bride Without A Groom for an honest review.

Rebecca is a blonde haired diva with a giant secret. Well, it’s not really a secret, but it should be. She is obsessed with the idea of getting married. She has been with her boyfriend Barry for about four years and she already has their wedding planned out… and not just via a board on Pinterest. She actually has called wedding venues, picked out a cake, and is half a step away from putting down a deposit on a Vera Wang dress. And she isn’t even engaged.

After being extremely upset that Barry didn’t propose on her birthday, the two get in a huge fight right before he is about to leave on a business trip in Asia. Things get out of hand between him and a coworker there while Rebecca remains in a serious distress at home, taking it out on Chinese food and chocolate. In the end everything winds up happily ever after. I am definitely rooting for a sequel!

The concept of this story was something I wasn’t sure I would mesh with. Don’t get me wrong, I want to get married someday, but girls who are obsessed with getting married annoy me. This story definitely had me laughing. The way Rebecca deals with problems is hysterical. I wish I knew her in real life because I think she would be a riot. This was a quick read for me because I couldn’t get enough of the things she said!
