Summary from publisher:
R.S.V.P. to the most riotous wedding of the year!
Lucy Jorik’s the daughter of a former U.S. president.
Meg Koranda’s the offspring of legends.
One of them is about to marry Mr. Irresistible—Ted Beaudine—the favorite son of Wynette, Texas.
The other is determined to save her friend from a mess of heartache.
Meg knows breaking up her best friend’s wedding is the right thing to do, but no one else agrees. Faster than Lucy can say “I don’t,” Meg’s the most hated woman in town—and stuck there with a dead car, an empty wallet, and a very angry bridegroom. Broke, stranded, without her famous parents watching her back, Meg believes she can survive by her own wits. After all, what’s the worst that can happen? She’ll lose her heart to Mr. Irresistible?
Not likely. Not likely at all.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips is one of those writers that my Mom and I both love. We pass around her books whenever we get one.
I have read the first books in the Wynette, Texas series before (Fancy Pants and Lady Be Good) and loved them. I was expecting the same level of greatness from this one especially since I remember loving Ted in those books. I loved Meg. She was such a lively character. She was funny, she was vivacious, she had her faults but I loved her in spite of them. I did have some trouble with Ted. He treated Meg like crap. I usually have no problems with that—I like bodice rippers—but he seemed particularly petty. I also didn’t like that he was a complete patsy for the town. He was the golden boy and the dictate his life. I just don’t like that at all.
I liked this book and I enjoyed reading it as I do most of Susan Elizabeth Phillips’ books. It was fun and fast-paced. It also had the same quirky type of humor that I love from books like this. I did have trouble seeing some of my favorite characters (especially Francesca and Emma) being so rude and cruel. I don’t like seeing characters I liked be a part of the mean girls club. I just wanted Ted to tell them to go stuff it but he didn’t. I also wanted to see Meg tell them all to go to hell—but she didn’t.
Overall, this one was okay. I liked it and it was a fun read but there were just some aspects of the book that just niggled.
