Editorial Reviews

pre-publication review - Laurie Toby Edison
Jane Austen meets the Marx Brothers. Lynne Murray has written a delightful comedy of manners with impeccable politics.
pre-publication review - Sue Ann Jaffarian
From the start you will find yourself cheering for Daria as she overcomes hurdles such as a control-freak sister, his and her stalkers, and her own nagging self doubt, to marry her beloved Oscar. Bride of the Living Dead is a fun read about love, friendship and being true to yourself.

Anyone needing a laugh-out-loud romance full of lovable and real people need look no further.
pre-publication review - Marilyn Wann
In Lynne Murray's fabulous version of romance, lovers find true pleasure in all body sizes and shapes, wedding dresses are altered to fit the happy bride's body (not bride made to fit brocade), and readers feast on smart detail and smarter dialogue. When they make the movie of this book, Renee Zellweger won't need to alter her diet or her weight to get a part and viewers will scream with delight!
online - Fern Ghauri
Reading a Lynne Murray book is like going to a hall in which the very best kind of comedy reigns from morning to night,and your favorite beverages and foods are always available....Women of size and those who believe that beauty and comedy come in all shapes and sizes will embrace Daria and her wonderfully curved voyage toward marrying an adoring man whom she finds hotter than a shining star, and who feels so very much the same about her, her sharp wit and her loveliness of body and mind.
