Overview

McMaster the Disaster series, Book 1

Josephine McMaster is pretty and smart, but very much a klutzy mess. Finally, at 26, she may have actually lost the dreaded ‘McMaster the Disaster’ nickname that has followed her around her whole life.

Josie’s quite content to be single, much to her mother’s disappointment. So when a bizarre contest is announced where a socialite is holding a lottery to pick her bridesmaids (and rake in a little extra cash), she can’t roll her eyes fast enough, even if it does mean meeting Jake Hall, her one and only movie star crush. Obviously, Josie doesn’t enter the bridesmaid lottery, so you can imagine her surprise when her picture pops up among the winners, thanks to Mom. With a little prodding -- okay bribing -- Josie agrees to participate.

The wedding turns into the event of the year, and Josie finds herself in the middle of a paparazzi feeding frenzy, which gets even crazier after Jake Hall takes a special interest in her.

Can Josie handle the pressure in the spotlight? Is it possible she might really have a chance with Jake Hall? And if she’s busy worrying about all that, how in the heck is she going to keep ‘McMaster the Disaster’ from showing up in front of the entire world?

When Josie MacMasters is reluctantly entered into a contest to become one of the bridesmaids of a rich debutante she doesn't realize until too late just how insane the entire process is going to be. With the wedding looming 3 months away she is harassed by papparazi, looked down upon by her peers, and thrown knee deep into a world she'd rather not be a part of. All this becomes a little better when she meets Jake Hall, the object of her one true desire. This story is wonderfully written and fun! It contains just the right balance of humor, real life, and romance. A definite must read for those that love chick-lit and romance! -Kitty Bullard / Great Minds Think Aloud Book Club

I liked the characters in the book a lot. I really enjoyed McMaster the Disaster in fact. Unfortunately I felt like it was plot driven than character driven. Which was a shame because I wanted to know more about Calla, Jennifer, Rebecca and the rest of the bridesmaids. I wanted to know more about Jake than a snapshot. If I had been given more looks into the women (and Mattie) around Josie, I would have loved the book to pieces because of their impact on who she is. The premise was original. I just needed a little more fleshing out of the characters.

I would recommend this book for any fan of romance novels to read this. There were a few grammar issues but over all glad I bought this one. There is no other book like this one.

I think u 12-13 year olds should be ok. It is clean. As long as you dont mind a little kissing here and there. The seens do lead to sex but do not go into detail at all. It is very appropriate.

Entertaining, easy read. Stayed up late to finish it because I had to know how it was going to end. Looks like it will have a sequel, can't wait~

If you are over 30, I think you would have a hard time relating to these characters. I'm not even halfway through the book and I'm loosing my interest. However, a younger audience may relate better to these characters and find the book a lot more enjoyable.

I absolutley loved this book!!! It is a book that you can relate to (especially New Yorkers) because before the lotto, Josie was a normal, nonpopular, non famous person like us. Only when her mother entered her did that change.....and maybe not all fort he worst. Thiswas a great book filled with compassion, love, and humiliation.I adored this book and I think you will too. :)

Maybe it gets better but I haven't found the drive to actually force myself to continue reading to find out.

I blew through this book in one day. It was really funny. I think I laughed out loud about 20 times.

Cliche, Cliche, Cliche.... I wanted to scream in agony by the time I finished this one. The book is riddled with typo's, missing words, and dumb, dumb dialog. The cover says that Astor is a best selling author....gee...maybe I should try that trick on my next book. I don't know who thinks she's best selling...when you give your books away (and that's the only way I would have ever looked at this book)I guess you can say whatever you want. Every character in this book is a cliche - from the bumbling leading lady to her best friend, flamboyantly gay co-worker, to the calculating evil fashion model, to the bumbling, over-chatty, hillbilly country girl. Think of every caricature you've ever seen on TV and you have the characters in this book. Even the 'hot' movie actor doesn't hold up. There is no description of anything in this story--well, except for the exceptional outfits the gay character puts together--and then it's over explained. We have no idea what color hair our leading lady has, what color the movie stars eyes are, or anything...are they fat? Skinny? Tall? Short? Sharp-featured? Round-faced? Give me a break....if you want me to care about a character--tell me what they look like!!!! I want to know everything about these people! Not just how stupid they sound because of the lame dialog. And as for plot - again predictable and mind numbing....wish I had the brain cells back that I just lost. Okay...enough said...needless to say, I won't read the sequels...I will not read another book by Astor...and I would recommend anyone considering this book to take a deep breath and find another book.

The story was ok but the editing, or lack thereof, was awful.  Punctuation, spelling, and grammar errors abound, which makes it hard to focus on the story.

This book started out great, but then I got sick of the main character. The story had everyone concerning themselves with Jo's life and she couldn't find time for any of them. She was critical of her roommate for liking a celebrity that she was secretly in love with. When it came to Jo's male friend, I lost interest in the book. What a flat character! He's gay - we got that. Is there any part of his character that isn't just a stereotype?

I loved this- couldn't put it down- and had to immediately get the other two books in the series. I have read them multiple times and will read them over and over again. Good job Rachel - so funny and ingenious.

This was a fun book to read. There were several typos thru out but didn't take away from the story. I will be buying the next book in the series.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was very interesting, I read it over the labor day weekend and couldn't wait to find out how it was going to end and to my surprise it didn't reveal the story in the direction it was going and in order to find out you will need to read the next book; and since I was so in tuned with the story line because of the way it was written -- just enough to get your adrenaline going; therefore, I bought the next book "Gamble on Engagement. Here I go again.....
