Most people who know me will tell you I don't read chick lit. Out of all genres it is my least favorite. However, there are always exceptions and this book was one of them.
Planning for your "big day" is very stressful. Emma Moon, a lawyer, has doubled the stress by deciding to go on a trip of discovery the week before the wedding. Some of the things Emma learns is very difficult for her. You feel her pain. Trying to find answers to why her family turned out the way it did was something she felt she had to do. She began to have self doubts about her wedding. She didn't want her marriage to resemble her parent's marriage. I'm sure there are many people like myself who will find areas in this story they can relate to. I liked the way the author wrote Emma's character because she felt so real and flawed. That is what made this book so different from most chick lit stories. I know this is why I loved the book so much and definitely recommend it to those friends who love the chick lit genre.
