Livia’s been planning her wedding to Jed for ages. Now, at the venue in beautiful Barcelona, with her dress pressed and the guests all on their way, she’s only left one tiny detail until the last minute: letting the groom know he’s about to get hitched.
But as far as Jed’s concerned, they’ve been bumping along just fine for ten years and even have a baby on the way, so why spoil things with an ‘I do’? Especially when he’d really rather not.
Meanwhile the guests are arriving with plenty of baggage of their own. Fading reality star Liam’s still on the lookout for a plus-one; Rachel’s has refused to come—and dumped her into the bargain; and divorcee Patrick’s date is more of the ‘mid-life crisis’ variety.
But as the ceremony approaches, and with no sign of Jed, there’s only one thing on all of their minds: will there be a bride and groom at the wedding?

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange of my honest opinion. Thank you for the book! I hadn't read anything by Matt Dunn before but after reading this I am looking forward to reading more from him. This book took place in a short time span and and has multiple points of view yet it didn't make it hard to follow along. It starts with Livia proposing to Jed the two were celebrating their 10 year anniversary on what Jed thought was just going to be a romantic trip to recreate when they first met before the baby comes. Jed is surprised by the whole thing especially when she says lets get married this weekend. It turns out Livia has planned an entire wedding including inviting their friends and family who arrive the following day. After that the book takes place that following day showing what all of attendees to the wedding are doing to prepare for the wedding and how they spend their time before wedding site seeing, shopping and hitting on any one around. I really enjoyed how well the author pulled everything together in such a short time period and how it still felt really believable with plenty of action and humor thrown as well as the growth of all the characters. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend to others.
Interesting premise of a woman who surprises her long-time boyfriend with a wedding where all he has to do is show up. However. The promise was not realized for me -- possibly the book is meant for a different audience, not for this reader.
This was an entertaining book. Livia has organized a trip to Barcelona with her long-term boyfriend, Jed, and several friends. It's the tenth anniversary for Livia and Jed, and they are getting married! Everyone knows this is the plan - except Jed, who finds out the night before the ceremony. The story follows that day and the next for Livia, Jed and their guests. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others.
