No one knows wedding cakes better than the owner of Boston's hottest cake boutique. Lauren Gallagher is a pro at helping brides and grooms pick out the perfect Big Day dessert. She also has a talent for predicting which marriage will last and which is destined to crumble-simply by observing their cake selection process. Her latest prediction, however, is anything but sweet. Unless her marital Magic Eight Ball is off, one of her best friends is about to tie the knot with Mr. Absolutely All Wrong. But while Lauren's trying to prevent a potential mismatch, she's got her own problems-involving an ex-boyfriend, his new fiancée, and the cake of Lauren's dreams.… (more)

Lauren Gallagher, owner of Lauren's Luscious Licks, a wedding cake boutique, believes she has a fool-proof method of determining whether a marriage will last: watching a couple choose a wedding cake. This belief leads her to think that her friend Paige's upcoming marriage is doomed (he wants cupcakes with fish on them, for heaven's sake!), and a book proposal.

While she and her other friend Robin scheme to save Paige from making a big mistake, Lauren's ex-boyfriend Neil and his new fiancee come into her shop, and choose the exact cake she's dreamed of for her own wedding. This convinces Lauren that Neil was The One for her after all, and there's a My Best Friend's Wedding-ish plot with Lauren trying to win him back.

In the meantime, Mr. Right, a divorce attorney, is there in the wings, but Lauren's too caught up in her wedding cake theory to see him.

In addition to the three girlfriends, there's also Lauren's head chef, Maria, who adds both humor and a whack on the head of sanity when needed. ( )

Fairly enjoyable, although I didn't like it quite as much as the author's other book, Bachelorette #1. Fairly predictable plotline, but then again, what else would you expect from chick lit? *grin* ( )
