Things are looking up at last for Lizzie Nochols. She has a career she loves in the field of her choice (wedding gown restoration), and the love of her life, Jean-Luc, has finally proposed. Life’s become a dizzying whirl of wedding gown fittings – not necessarily her own – as Lizzy prepares for her dream wedding at her fiance’s chateau in the south of France.
But the dream soon becomes a nightmare as the best man – whom Lizzie might once have accidentally slept with…no, really, just slept – announces his total lack of support for the couple, a sentiment the maid of honor happens to second; Lizzie’s Midwestern family can’t understand why she doesn’t want to have her wedding in the family backyard; her future, oh-so-proper French in-laws seem to be slowly trying to lure the groom away from medical school and back into investment banking; and Lizzie finds herself wondering if her Prince Charming really is as charming as she once believed.Source: back of book
So what was Lizzie thinking getting engaged with Jean-Luc anyway? That is what I kept thinking through the whole book (and apparently all of her friends). In reality, Lizzie completely sucked at listening to her gut! So much so, that I started to really get annoyed with her. And it just got worse as she actually started sleeping with the hottie best friend of the fiance – but she STILL doesn’t want to break it off with him? Even after she realizes she loves someone else?? What – is – her- deal??
Anway, it all ends up good in the end, good enough that I was happy with it!
