Overview

A hilarious and heartwarming debut novel of big dreams, big days, and even bigger lies. . .

Molly Harrigan has always dreamed of the perfect wedding, she just never thought she'd be in scores of them as the bridesmaid. Now on her thirtieth birthday–after her younger, married sister announces that she's pregnant–Molly's old dream takes on an all-new urgency.

It doesn't help matters that her best friend Brad drops the bomb that he's engaged to his spoiled brat of a girlfriend. Devastated, Molly does what almost no one in the same situation would do. With a giant wedding fund burning a hole in her pocket (courtesy of her late, beloved grandmother), Molly hires a fiancé.

Now armed with the perfect boyfriend, Molly stages a whirlwind courtship, engagement, and grand-ballroom-style wedding. Lying to her friends and family is a small price to pay for cake-tastings, gift registries, and dress fittings. But lying to herself could cost Molly her one chance at true love–with a man whose feet are turning as cold as her own. . .

This was one of the best book I've read in a long time! It had me laughing all the way through && to be honest from the moment I started reading it i couldnt put it down....I was so hooked i finished it in 1 daY!!! This was a great debut book for the author && I hope it wont be the last! She writes the story in a way that you start to love the characters (personally i fell in love with Justin) however the story is great!! I'd recommend this book to any one who loves a great love story!!!!

I can't remember the last time a book actually made me laugh out loud! This book was amazing and I couldn't put it down! I've never really been much into the chick lit genre thats really exploded over the last few years but this one caught my attetnion. I, like the main character, have been one of those gals who has been planning my own wedding since I got my first bridal Barbie doll. Which makes our heroine, Molly, so outrageous is that she resorts to hiring a man(the lovely Justin) to play her boyfriend and then fiancee so she can use her huge wedding fun - courtsey of a late beloved grandmother - to plan her dream wedding at the Plaza Hotel in NYC. While trying to plan her own wedding Molly is trying to deal with a pregnant sister and a beloved little brother who has a big secret to tell the family. The ending is fantastic and perfectly put together - I can't wait to read the next book by this author! Its a wonderful debut!

In high school, Molly Harrigan assumed that by the time she turned thirty, she would be married, own a home and have two kids to raise. Now that she is turning thirty, she remains single, a Manhattan renter, and has no kids to raise. Even worse is the fact she has no prospects as she has no boyfriend. Her younger sister Jamie, married to Bryson, is pregnant her best friend Brad Lawson is engaged to the evil Claire Reilly. There is also Logan. She loves all three of them and wants the best for each, but what about her also getting her desires achieved?---------------------- Though no male to call her own, Molly decides to have at least the wedding she always wanted by hiring an actor Justin to play the groom. He provides a perfect performance as her family and friends adore him especially her brother Logan. When Brad suddenly seems to wants his relationship ended, so does Logan for different reasons still in his role Justin secretly agrees with both men. However, the complications of courtships make it seem inevitable that Molly will say I do to Justin even if it is staged.------------------ This is an amusing chick lit tale starring an incredibly fully developed support cast and a likable lead protagonist who just wants her soulmate to appear. The story line is fun to follow as the complications of the fake courtship makes it increasingly difficult to back out of it especially since everyone loves Justin. Though Claire is a selfish shrew, readers will enjoy the escapades of the extended Harrigan family.-------------------------------- Harriet Klausner

I had the pleasure of reading an ARC copy of this book. It is excellent! It has comedy, romance, friendship, everything you could ask for. This is Kirsten Sawyer's first book and I think she will be having a very long career if she keeps on this path. This book was about a girl who wants to get married but doesnt have a fiance or boyfriend. So she hires a man to pretend to be her fiance so she can throw herself a fabulous wedding. The only problem is, the girl's night and shining armor is right under her nose and she doesnt know it. Will she go through with this sham of a wedding or will she run off with Mr. Right? Read this book to find out! Also if you enjoyed Karyn Bosnak's book 20 Times a Lady, I am sure you will find this similar with the humor and love this one too.
