    Just Ok

    I was very intrigued by this book, as the front said if you love Sophie Kinsella you will love Holly McQueen's new book. The cover was wrong. I do, in fact, love Sophie Kinsella because her books are nothing like this. The book, overall, is just ok. I had no issue with any of the characters except the main one. Instead of rooting for her, I couldn't get over how dumb she was. I like books with a smart antagonist who may have flaws, because she is human, but is not a flat out flake. This was not the case with this book. Though I didn't like the main character, I found the other ones charming. Overall I say if you love Sophie Kinsella then stick to reading her books and not this one.

    Infuriating

    I am a huge fan of chick lit..however, this book was annoying from start to the middle, as i couldn't even stand to finish the book all the way to the end. The main character is an idiot and you find yourself constantly rooting for her to fail.

    Disappointing

    I'm guessing that the publishers of this book were shown two or three promising chapters and on the strength of those chapters offered to publish the book, not realizing that the author would keep writing those same chapters over and over again until she finally threw in a predictable ending.

    The main character could only be described as stupid and self absorbed and the supporting characters were one dimensional.

    The attempt at romance was pathetic. Basically it was a half hearted rip off of the Shopaholic books and it failed miserably. Don't waste your time or money on this one.

    I absolutely loved There Goes the Bride. It was a very "new" style of book to me. The story is told by two people, and one of them is NOT Polly! So there are actually three different stories inter-weaved together. The book alternates between Bella, Polly's sister, and Grace, Polly's best friend.

    Bella is the opposite of Polly. She is a carter, slightly overweight and average height. Polly is perfect in every way. Bella tends to date "losers" and can't have children. Polly is engaged to a "catch," Dev. Grace is more like Polly. Grace is perfect in every way, but in a miserable marriage.

    In There Goes the Bride, will find a great story that unwinds as you read the book, a steamy affair, a bully of a husband (I didn't like Grace's husband), an unbelievable secret, a heroine (loved Bella!) and a hot (but hairy!) Irishman!

    Save your money or buy something else

    I was so frustrated by this book. Isabel, the main character, got herself into one ridiculous situation after another because of stupid assumptions and generally not thinking. It could have been a great book, but the author just did not deliver. I would not read another book by this author based on this book. I know chick lit is light, fun reading, but this? This is to chick lit what low-fat, low sugar cookies are to dessert: totally lacking substance and leaving one wanting more.
