I thought, from reading the overview on the back of the book, I could get into this light hearted romp about a newly 30 woman wanting a wedding NOW! Her grandma left Molly a dream wedding fund in her will, and its burning a hole in her pocket. She hires a gay escort and they hatch a whirlwind courtship plan, with the ultimate goal that would end with the "fiancee" leaving her at the altar, because then she could keep the gifts and have her reception. What I thought would be a fun read, turned into a treatise on a self absorbed woman. I found the whole family annoying the way they were written. The writing was almost frantic in trying to show action "and then I had to ..." "I ran over here" ....it was a list of action that was meant to fold you into the frantic life Molly must get ready for her ultimate day the constant droppings of action felt forced. Instead of a gentle telling, it was more like massive ploppings, and I just couldn't get into the story. The best friend story was weird. Of course they're going to get together in the end, but the back and forth, I miss you, can't we see each other, get away you don't understand, I don't need this, dialogue just had me wanting to stop reading the story.I don't have much to recommend the story. I liked the hired fiancee, wish I had one of those in my life. ( )
