Wedding vows have never been this personal…
Willow has been living with marriage-shy Charlie for more years than she cares to remember and is old-fashioned enough to want a wedding band and a loads-of-sex honeymoon before stretchmarks and nipple shields.
So when the once-wary Charlie surprisingly goes down on one knee, Willow doesn’t question why her boyfriend is suddenly so keen to rush her into saying “I do”.
The first clue comes as Willow is zipped into her Cinderella dress, the second as she bobs into the wedding car, and the third as the Roller swings towards its fairy-tale destination… leaving a shell-shocked Willow desperately trying to figure out what to do next.
A bride can do anything she wants on her wedding day, but nobody expected her to do this…
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
Willow is a lovely woman, loyal, naive and much too good for her live-in lover Charlie. Charlie is self-absorbed, deceitful and narcissistic. So not a couple destined for happiness, nevertheless Willow wants to marry him.
It’s hard to find redeeming features in most of this story’s main characters, except Willow and Emma. Yet, this story works, following Charlie’s numerous infidelities and the payback he gradually receives is darkly amusing. The plot has many twists, which I guessed, but despite this, the ending is dramatic and satisfying.
Prior to turning her attention to writing, Debbie Viggiano was, for more years than she cares to remember, a legal secretary. She lives with her Italian husband, a rescued pooch from Crete, and a very grumpy cat. Occasionally her adult children return home bringing her much joy… apart from when they want to raid the fridge or eat her secret stash of chocolate.
