Sixteen-year-old Delilah Welling never understood why Darcy Strong despised her so much. Especially since their mothers had been friends for a lifetime. So when Delilah is asked to be The Junior Bridesmaid in Darcy's wedding, Delilah is understandably surprised and reluctant to say yes. Upon her mother's insistence, Delilah finally agrees determined to look at the bright side. And there couldn’t be a brighter side than Hugh Rowen, a.k.a. the groom. Delilah has always been in love with Hugh and could never understand what a nice guy like Hugh was doing with a wench like Darcy. Before the wedding, Delilah discovers that the bride-to-be is keeping a torrid secret. Fearful that she will hurt Hugh, she remains silent, going about her Junior Bridesmaid duties as planned. Until... All hell breaks loose during the wedding ceremony. Embarrassed and devastated, Delilah flees the wedding. But not before hurting the love of her life. Twelve years later, Delilah is 28 and living a happy existence in New York. Until one day when she receives a message addressed to JUNIOR? Has Hugh hunted her down twelve years later to exact revenge or is he in New York for a different reason entirely? Either way, twelve years is a long time to wait to find out! ***This is a stand alone novel meant for mature readers over the age of 18 due to mature content and language.***
I watched in the mirror as Angela emerged from the back room waddling in my direction holding a hideous purple cap in her clutches. My eyes squinted unable to believe what I was seeing. It looked like it belonged on a circus monkey.
“Holy shit, is that a parrot?” I breathed as I was figuring the entire saga was about to take a turn for the unbelievably god-awful. That dreadful hat was about to find a home on the top of my head. Parrot and all.
“It’s a blue bird,” the woman answered still coming toward me.
Junior bridesmaid, my ass. I was slowly being turned into a chump. Or maybe it was a chimp.
“God help me,” I closed my eyes and prayed.
This wedding was going to be the death of me.
This book was a breath of fresh air, so different from what I have been reading and I LOVED it!!
The cover says Romantic Comedy and this book was definitely romantic and funny! I am so glad I agreed to review it!
I would give this book Five Amazing Stars!!
Oh my, poor Delilah is one hot mess! The story starts with 16 year old Delilah who is asked to be a junior bridesmaid in a wedding she has no desire to attend because the groom is her crush.. she reluctantly agrees because it makes her mother happy and what happens next is hilarious and heart breaking all at once.
12 years later her doorman hands her a message that throws her life into a tailspin. What was the message and what happens next? Well, you will have to read it yourself to find out. I promise you will not be disappointed!
Amy Baker is a very talented writer. I would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone!
