Publisher's Summary

A wedding dress passed down through generations unravels the tangled threads of three women's lives in a novel of friendship, family, and forgiveness from the USA Today best-selling author of Ten Beach Road.

Prized and stored away for safekeeping, the timeless ivory wedding dress, with its scooped neck and cleverly fitted bodice, sits gently folded in its box, whispering of happily ever afters. To Kendra, Brianna, and Lauren, it’s a reminder of what could have been, the promise of a fairy tale, and a friendship torn apart. But as Kendra knows firsthand: It wasn’t the dress’s fault.

Once closer than sisters, Lauren and Bree have grown up and grown apart, allowing broken promises and unfulfilled dreams to destroy their friendship. A successful author, Lauren returns home to the Outer Banks, fiancé in tow, to claim the dress she never thought she’d wear. Bree, a bookstore owner, grapples with the realities of life after you marry the handsome prince. As the former best friends wrestle with their uncertain futures, they are both certain of one thing: Some betrayals can never be forgiven. 

Now, on the eve of her daughter Lauren’s wedding, Kendra struggles with a secret she’s kept for far too long. She vows to make sure the dress will finally bring Lauren and Bree back together - knowing they'll need each other to survive the coming storm.

Critic Reviews

My Ex-Best Friend's Wedding is Wendy Wax's best book to date. Filled with her trademark witty dialogue and crisp writing, readers will be immersed in a deeply emotional tale of what family really means, and of friendship lost and found. With a gorgeously descriptive setting in Outer Banks, North Carolina, and carefully crafted characters to laugh and cry with, this should be the first book you put in your beach bag this summer.” (Karen White, New York Times best-selling author of Dreams of Falling)

My Ex-Best Friend’s Wedding plumbs the depths of true friendship, the beauty, the pain, and the vulnerability it demands. Wax has crafted a beautifully wrought story that will touch your heart and make you value those in your own life. A must read!” (Susan Crandall, author of The Myth of Perpetual Summer)

Must read

I’ve been following Wendy’s work since Ocean Beach and have been hooked ever since. This book definitely leaves you wanting more. I’m so used to looking forward to more of a story with her that part of me wishes this was a series as well. Check it out. You won’t be sorry

Great audio/read!

Wendy Wax is one of my favorite authors and have lost count of how many I’ve read. I stay current on her new releases. I always enjoy them, but I especially loved this one! While I could not identify with each instance in the book, I could identify with the emotions and relationships portrayed. Great summer read!

light easy read

A little fluffy light easy read perfect for poolside relaxing! Narration was excellent. Also not a ton of characters to keep up with or pay super close attention to.

Perfect “Beach Read”!

I enjoyed the 10 Beach Road series so much I wanted to hear more from Wendy Wax. The story had me wondering what was going to happen next even when I wasn’t listening to it. Kendra, Lauren, and Bree had me thinking how I would have responded to each of the challenges they faced. Grab a cool drink, sit back and read! Highly recommend it!!

Disappointed

The narrators are awful. Could not stand to listen to another chapter. (Except for Brittany Pressley, I wish she narrated the whole book).
