The Secret Bridesmaid was my favorite out of all of them.
Love the Virgin River series though!

Fun story about a woman who works as a professional bridesmaid, getting hired by brides to pretend to be their close friends while simultaneously helping to plan their perfect weddings. Filled with so many cute and funny scenes, it‘s just what I needed!

Stayed up way too late finishing this book because
1. I loved so many of the characters
2. The characters I hated, I grew to love
3. The humor flawlessly comes off of the page and that is often hard for writers to achieve.

Problem, not a series but I still need more!

A mini library haul - I‘ve been on a bit of an ebook kick lately - so I returned all my library books that had holds on them - and picked up a couple that were waiting. We are on the final stretch of lockdown in Melbourne - so this might be my last click and collect library experience!

I loved the premise of this rom-com. The fact the your bridesmaid is supposed to support and assist you on your big day is universal but what happens when you don't have a great gal pal to fill the job. Sophie was such a lovable character.

Not really a romance, but enjoyable and funny.

This is exactly as smooshy as it looks. If you're looking for an unusual, unpredictable ending, this is not for you. The thing that makes this book really freaking awesome is that it's hilarious. She comes up with new ridiculous bridezilla situations that will make you laugh out loud. Because sometimes you need that.
