Santa Monica graphic designer Ashley Lane has everything going right in her life: a career she loves, a great apartment in a beautiful city, and wonderful friends. But there is just one little hitch: most of her friends are either engaged, married, or expecting, all except for her! It's been ten years since she had a serious relationship like the one she had with her first love Scott. Through the years Ashley has dated, each one starts out wonderful, but after a few dates the relationships seem to fizzle out and comes to a grinding halt. She figures that she just hasn't met the Right One yet, but being single has become a liability and she has begun to feel like an outcast with her inner circle of friends. One day before her thirtieth birthday, her latest boyfriend Brad broke up with her for another woman. Seeking advice, she talks to Ray, her friend and yoga instructor, who says that he has the answer to her problem. He wants her to attend a self-improvement workshop with him that is about the power of believing, visualizing, affirming and living your dreams. She is skeptical but after being pressured by Ray, she decides to follow the methods they were taught and act like she already has found her groom and plan her wedding! What starts out as harmless pretending soon snowballs into full blown wedding preparations that will be held in six weeks. When her friends and family find out about Ashley's plans, they are thrown for a loop and want to know where's the groom? Will Ashley's dreams of finding her groom and having a wedding of her own become a reality, or will it turn out to be just wishful thinking? Where's The Groom? is an entertaining story written in the third person narrative that follows the zany journey Ashley Lane embarks upon when she plans her wedding without having a groom. This is a cute story, but I have to admit that while I did enjoy this story (it was filled with a lot of humor and lighthearted moments), I did think it was a bit too far fetched to be believable, and I found myself rolling my eyes quite a bit. Nonetheless, if you can put reality aside and follow along with the madcap journey that takes Ashley to the altar, it will keep you turning the pages to see if Ashley's dream groom will show up at the wedding! The story is filled with hilarious wedding plan trials and tribulations; some annoying friends and family who I wanted to yell at various times; and a woman who wants what her friends have: to find the right guy to love and be loved in return. Where's The Groom? is a fun romantic comedy that is an easy read. It will tickle your funny bone and give you a HEA ending that everyone craves.

I received this novel from CLP Blog Tours in exchange for my honest review during this tour, and I liked this novel. I thought it was very cute and hilarious. The story begins with the main character, Ashley Lane, being dumped by her boyfriend the day before her 30th birthday. As the story goes along, Ashley allows Ray, her yoga instructor, to talk her into pretending she's found The One and plan her wedding. All hell breaks loose when someone finds her "looking" at wedding invitations and that's how it all begins. It was a little hard for me to get into this novel, but not because of the concept; the author's writing was a little hard for me to grasp, but I absolutely loved the concept. In all honesty, I could completely see myself planning a wedding and not have a groom picked out, so it made me love this story even more. Overall, it ended up being a good story, even though I couldn't get into it at first!
