I enjoyed the book. It started off a little slow, but it sped up. The evil bosses were great!! I cringed everytime I say Margo's name!

When I saw this book, I was really excited. But it just didn't seem to hold my interest, and I felt it was too long. It had a few funny parts, but overall I was relieved when I'd finally finished it.

I related to the character, Libby, in that I too am 'getting older' and am not yet married and while I haven't caught as many bouquets as Libby, I have caught quite a few! But really, I couldn't put this book down! I think that if you liked Bridget Jones's Diary that you would like this book.

In Toronto Libby McIssac is legendary for catching bridal bouquets having caught twelve over the past two decades starting when she was eight. Libby knows she has a tall advantage being six foot five in three inch heels, but even when she does not try she makes the play as every wedding she ahs attended she has caught the bouquet................................... Libby obtains a job at the Ministry of Recreations as a political speechwriter for Minster Clarice Cleary. However, the job stinks as her immediate boss and the Minister barely acknowledge that she breaths and blithely informs her that they will let her know when she can think for herself. The positives are Tim Kennedy, who she met at a wedding when she easily caught the bridal bouquet, and a male friend willing to end the bouquet curse. On the other hand a scandal shakes up the Ministry and people like Libby are considered mass sacrifice fodder................................. Even though the heroine¿s angst is bigger than her basketball physique and can become disruptive, Libby still makes this chick lit pleasurable through her often amusing perspective of the worlds of dating even much shorter males, weddings and politics. The story line is for the most part humorous (think of a penis of a peninsular), but also has a serious undertone involving workplace culpability (the buck stops below management). Readers will enjoy Libby¿s lament just don¿t try to crash the boards against her................................ Harriet Klausner
