    Isabella, Mary, and Lauren are going to be bridesmaids in Kristi's wedding. On Sunday after Sunday, at bridal shower after bridal shower, they coo over toasters, eat tiny sandwiches, and drink mimosas. They're all happy for Kristi, but they do have the ups and downs of their own lives to cope with. Isabella is working at a mailing-list company, where she's extremely successful, and wildly unhappy. Mary is in love with a man who may never love any woman as much as he loves his mother. And Lauren, a waitress at a midtown bar, finds herself drawn to a man she's pretty sure she hates.

    Overall

    This book was unlistenable, at least by a middle-aged woman with a brain. I thought I might have accidentally purchased a young adult novel. A discerning tween or teen would agree though that the characters are one-dimensional and the story lines are as thin as dental floss. I managed to hang in through Chapter One, but only because the state law prohibits handling distracting devices while driving. Thankfully, I made it home and was able to put an end to my misery and the interminable and tasteless "so and so dates ugly guys" story line went on to disparage any other unfortunates with imperfect skin, career choices, or body types ("You kissed the 'Wildebeest'? Eeeew.".)

    This book was one of three featured books on Audible's home page in mid-August 2011 as I write this; I'm sorry I trusted the recommendation.
