Happy Friday book people!
Super excited to share this review with you! This book was straight up hilarious! I love humor in my books and this book was packed full of it! A huge thank you too Suzy for my invitation to this delightful tour!🌹
A hilarious story full of humor and heart!
This book was just straight up fun! A fun heart warming story guaranteed to make you laugh out loud! All families are dysfunctional, some families are more dysfunctional than others… I loved how this book just laid everything out there on the table…. it reminded me of those days when everything is going wrong so you just have to laugh!
Marcy was a fabulous character who I have a lot in common with… I am divorced, have three kids, and have two close friends that help me get through it all! What I don’t have is a John, although I don’t think I’m ready for that, but he was a really nice guy! So this is the second book featuring Marcy, in the first book her husband cheats on her and she kicks him to the curb, however it can absolutely be read as a standalone… in this book marcy, has moved on… her new boyfriend John wants to take their relationship to a more serious level, her soon to be ex cheating husband Harvey wants her back, and her daughter Amanda is getting married… I love the juxtaposition of the wedding and the divorce… I also love how this book accurately portrayed how insane people can act when planning a wedding…
This book was crammed full of little gems this was my absolute favorite is bread still considered white after it has been toasted? that line still makes me chuckle! Just a wonderful book all about life, love, family, good times, bad times, something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue… marcy is just a tremendously relatable character she could be you, she could be your mom, your sister, your BFF, she is someone you are glad you got to spend some time with!
A story that reminds you no matter how messy life gets never lose sight of your sense of humor! recommend!
*** many thanks to Lake Union for my copy of this book ***
About the Book
A heartwarming, hilarious novel for anyone who has ever had a family, from the author of Lift and Separate.
After a lifetime of marriage, Marcy Hammer is ready to get herself unhitched—just as everyone else in her life is looking for a commitment. Her new boyfriend, Jon, wants to get serious, and her soon-to-be ex-husband, Harvey, is desperate to get back together. When her headstrong daughter announces a secret engagement to Harvey’s attorney, Marcy finds herself planning her daughter’s wedding as she plans her own divorce.
Now with two huge events on the horizon, the indomitable Marcy soon realizes that there’s nothing like a wedding to bring out the worst in everybody. From petty skirmishes over an ever-growing guest list to awkward confrontations with her sticky-fingered new in-laws, pulling off the wedding is going to be a challenge; seeing her divorce through is going to be a trial. And trying to make everyone happy might prove to be impossible—because in the end, Marcy alone must make a choice between something old and something new.
