DNF

While I found some amusement occasionally in the dialogue, I got tired of the broad humor. I don't know why authors think it's funny to throw in a crass, sex crazed grandma... it's tiresome and wasn't funny to me in the first 20 times I read it in a book. Add to that the stereotype white trashy inlaws and a cartoonish boring fiancee , and I am done expecting depth or feeling from this book. Finally, the H who woos her comes off as smarmy to me. He constantly tries to seduce her, also trying to entice her to buy a overpriced wedding dress she can't afford while telling her he's not interested himself in a relationship. So, that leaves only one thing he's interested in if she's engaged to someone else and he doesn't want her , and it just comes across as creepy. I am already tired of her inner thoughts ....I'm engaged but why do I keep thinking of blah blah blah.... I am out at chapter 12.

Very sweet, not sugary.

Such a good book... the characters are all so colorful and real, as if they exist off the page in truth. The story has a streak of unbelievability but at the same time is perfectly plausible. There is such depth to each personality and back story that it all works beautifully. I knew these people, all of them.

And the narrators performance was sheer perfection!

Sweet & Stupid

While sweet & mildly entertaining, this book about Candace, a supposedly intelligent business owner, was disappointing. She was ready to marry mamma's boy Barry until she meets sexy Michael. If Candace was that stupid and insecure, she deserved to be miserable.
