Bridesmaids

by Jane Costello

Simon & Schuster UK | October 14, 2008 | Trade Paperback

Bridesmaids is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
With less than an hour to go before her best friend, Grace, is to walk down the aisle, Evie is attempting to fulfil her most important bridesmaid role: to deposit the bride at the startline at the appointed time. But with a bride famed for her chaotic sense of time, and the bride''s daughter busy mashing Molton Brown into the expensive hotel carpet, minus underwear, the odds are stacked against her. . .

At least she has her new ''chicken fillet'' boob-enhancers to make her feel special. That is, until these are spotted poking over the top of her dress. So spotted by Jack - the most ruggedly attractive man Evie has ever laid eyes on.

Evie is twenty-seven; a sparkly, down-to-earth journalist. She has never been in love and has started to fret that she never will be. Small wonder, then, that the prospect of being bridesmaid at no less than three impending weddings is one that fills her with trepidation.

Things get worse when Evie learns that Jack is her friend Valentina''s date. Valentina is beautiful, shallow and self-obsessed. Her dates tend to be mirror-images. Which can mean only one thing: Jack can''t possibly be as good as he seems. But as they sit together talking late into the night, Evie finds herself yearning to believe he''s all real.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved this Brit chick lit Nobody does chick lit better than the UK authors! I mean, it is, after all the birth place of Bridget Jones! In Bridesmaids, author Jane Costello hits the spot right on - describing the madness and the overall silliness of weddings, brides, bridesmaids and falling in love. The opening chapter of this book is hilarious! We have a godzilla bride and a perfect storm of "Murphy's Law" coming together to create a series of funny, funny episodes that had me hooked from the first chapter. We meet Evie who is our commitment phobic bridesmaids - she just does not get what all the fuss is about - but she is about to get a very good idea as she literally bumps into Jack.. As the story develops, we get to know Evie and I started to understand where some of her commitment issues were coming from. Although this book is a definite chick lit (yeah!) it is suprisingly touching and the Jack character is a wonderfuly addition. Will Evie finally overcome her fear of marriage? and actually stick through a relationship? My lips are sealed. But Bridesmaids is a clever, wonderfully funny book and I am thrilled to have discovered it.

Read from the Book

Chapter 1 The Forest of Bowland, Lancashire, Saturday, 24 February My best friend is due to get married in fifty-two minutes and the hotel suite looks like day three on the main field at Glastonbury. The room is strewn with random items of wedding paraphernalia - and I include the bride herself in that category. Grace is still in her dressing-gown, with only half of her make-up done. I, meanwhile, have spent the last ten minutes frantically trying to revive the flowers in her hair after she trapped them in the car door coming back from the hairdresser. I give her curls another generous whirl of spray and throw the empty can onto the four-poster bed. ''You''re sure it''s all secure now, Evie?'' she asks, hurriedly applying her mascara in a huge antique mirror. I''ve used enough hairspray to keep Trevor Sorbie in a comfortable retirement, so am reasonably confident. ''Definitely,'' I say. ''It doesn''t look unnatural though, does it?'' she goes on, picking up a tub of bronzing balls. I tentatively touch her curls. They feel like they''re made of fibre-glass. ''Course not,'' I lie, strategically re-positioning bits of foliage over some of the thirty-odd hairgrips. ''Your flowers are perfect. Your hair''s perfect. Everything''s perfect.'' She looks at me, entirely unconvinced. We''re in the bridal suite at the Inn at Whitewell, in the Forest of Bowland, a piece of countryside so beautiful it inspired Tolkien''s Shire in The Lord of the Rings , and so tranquil that the Queen herse
