This was mostly a fun read- very much a chick lit novel!

Julia is 34, and engaged and about to be married to the man of her dreams... and nonetheless, her life is falling apart. Mostly, at age 34, she has not yet learned to say NO to anyone's expectations. This is especially true for her sister, who both wants to plan Julia's wedding as a test for her prospective wedding planner career- AND considers this to be a HUGE favor she is doing for Julia, who herself wants none of it. Julia really needed to make it clear who was doing a favor for whom- and it wasn't Anna for her! And- with nna being such a control freak- I do not see why she was unwilling to make any decisions on her own when Julia just couldn't care.

Similarly, Julia's future MiL has decided opinions about Julia's wedding, which Julia feels required to meet.

Not to mention her fiance being more keen to expand her business than she feels comfortable with, and her reluctance to tell him no.

I guess that, while I can understand why she made the choices she did- it ended up making the book mostly about a protagonist who has failed to develop a spine.

This was frustrating, since the plot and characters were well-done. I just couldn't like Julia much during most of the novel. I sympathized, but didn't enjoy her voice.

It did end better than it began! ( )
