I normally read book reviews for an author I've never read before. But this book, I ordered based on the premise alone. That was mistake number one. Mistake No. 2 was choosing to read this book, over another, more interesting one. And Mistake No. 3 was continuing to read this book even after the heroine got on my nerves after the 3rd page.

There were so many things wrong with this book. The plot affect of the main character "talking" to the audience was annoying, as was the weak-willed heroine. Weak heroines who REPEATEDLY let themselves get dumped on, then whine about it ... ugh, spare me.

Another thing was the Big Misunderstanding. Not a huge fan of those (especially if it's something that can be cleared up quickly with a face to face) but if they resolve themselves within a chapter or two, fine. The BM here went on until ALMOST THE LAST PAGE! Are you kidding me?

The hero kept talking about how he had never met anyone like the heroine; how she was strong, funny, sassy, and sexy. My book must have been missing all the chapters where she showed THOSE qualities.

And lastly, her hair seemed to be a minor character in and of itself. If you're so put together and want to be taken seriously, get a chemical straightener, invest in a good cut, invest in some awesome product but DO something other than complain on a near constant basis. Diana Ross hair doesn't even look good on Diana Ross!

I had a hard time getting into this book. The heroine kind of rambles on in the beginning, but once I got into it, I enjoyed the book. It's a cute story, been made into a movie, but I've read that the book is better.

There is another book written by the author about the sister of the heroine in this book and I'm looking forward to reading more about these characters.

Interesting and fun, although the heroine is a little too clueless for me. Tries a bit too hard to be madcap and hysterical and falls flat.

Enjoyable, quick read with likeable characters. Similar to the movie The Wedding Planner but still a fun story.

A simple read, decently written but with a rather obvious "surprise" ending.

She creates perfect days... she lives loney nights. Could a wedding planner learn that you just may not be able to plan everything, least of all true love?

This book is great! I watched the movie afterwards and that was also wonderful.

An easy read! Starts out a little slow but gets good 1/3 of the way through. There are 2 more books in the "series" they are about different people in the book

A marriage planner meets a hot guy. Is he the groom to a bride desperate for attention. Only time will tell. A good summer read.
