    Became obsessed with baking!

    I am one to never finish a book. This is the first book I was able to finish in probably almost 17 years ' only read what was demanded in school ' and absolutly loved it! I love trying to picture the characters with real actors/actresses. I kept coming up with cameron Diaz for Lauren Gallagher. But what was really great about this book was that it helped me find a new interest...baking cakes! It is a great book if you just want to read something that just let's you have time to yourself and not get analytical about it. reading should be fun, not boring, and this one finally helped me see that!

    Dress Rehearsal

    This is a fun new chick lit that anyone who likes a humorous, fast-paced story and engaging characters will enjoy. Can Lauren's cake theory really predict a happy ending for a couple? Will her attempt to save her best friend from the wrong man end up blowing up in her face? Do Lauren and her friends learn that life isn't a Dress Rehearsal? Read and find out. I raced through this book and enjoyed every minute.

    Dress Rehearsal

    This book is about an upscale pastry chef in Boston who specializes in wedding cakes, and just also happens to think she can predict the future of a couple by watching them pick out a cake. But while she thinks she has a 'marital magic eight ball', the story isn't just about her prediction abilities, so much as it looks at three friends at different stages in their lives. Lauren is so over weddings and the hoopla that surrounds them, until she realizes that maybe she's been holding out for something without even realizing it. Her divorced friend Robin (who I loved) is a sarcastic,divorced seminar speaker with a big grudge against the male species, and Paige is the hopeful, if realistic, friend about to get married, although wrongfully so if Lauren is correct. There are lots of things happening in the fast-paced story, and the ending is great. I really enjoyed the author's first book, and this book, while different, should be taken for what it is, a good time hanging out with a whacky trio of friends. And the wonderful cake descriptions will have you running for the nearest bakery
