It's a happy day for everyone except the bridesmaid ...**

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 start-line 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.

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. But then she meets her friend Valentina's date, Jack. 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. Can he?

Full of warmth, fun and laughter, Bridesmaids is a novel to devour!

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.
