I thought this was such a cute, heartwarming novel! There’s lovable Lauren, our MC who’s just about to get married when the groom, well, he ghosts her. The story follows Lauren as she navigates life after being left at the altar.
I really enjoyed the characters in this one. Lauren is adorable, and I kind of want to be friends with her. She’s got some family members that drive her up the wall, and I thought they created an interesting side-story dynamic!
This is a romance, but I liked that it’s also about the healing and growth for Lauren. There is room for both in this one! Overall, I would recommend this for readers who want to slip into an easy read that will have them smiling and happy!
Where to Find This Book:
From the author of Husbands and Other Sharp Objects comes a witty, bighearted novel about the happy accidents that lead to love and second chances.
Forty-one years old, the last of her friends to marry, and down to a size 12, Lauren Leo is in her gown and about to tie the knot. There’s just one thing missing: the groom. With one blindsiding text, Lauren is unceremoniously dumped at the altar.
In the aftermath, her mother is an endless well of unsolicited advice (Stay on your diet and freeze your eggs). Her sisters only add to the Great Humiliation: one is planted on Lauren’s couch while the other is too perfect.
Picking her heart up off the floor, Lauren turns to her work in advertising as she gathers courage to move on and plan her next step. She should know by now that nothing in life goes according to plan. What lies ahead is the road to self-acceptance and at long last feeling worthy. With a new way to measure love and success, Lauren chucks her scale—and finds a second chance in the most unexpected place.
