Marrying well (with a dose of sibling rivalry)


Well, this was not what I was expecting. Although it may sound like it and even look like it, it’s definitely not your standard chick lit!!

It has dark secrets, unsuitable relationships, conflicts, sibling rivalry, unrequited love and lesbian love affairs. Oh and sex. A bit too much detail of their sexual activity for me (I’m reading it on the tube on the way to work), but that’s probably my only complaint.

A fun tale with celebrity weddings and a bit of an insight into the main characters’ lives. A surprising revelation and the story becomes much deeper.

An interesting read but won’t be for everyone

About this book

Meryl Becker is living a mother’s dream. The oldest of her three beautiful daughters, Meg, is engaged to a wonderful man from one of the country’s most prominent families. Of course, Meryl wants to give Meg the perfect wedding. Who wouldn’t? But when her two younger daughters, Amy and Jo, also become engaged to celebrated bachelors, Meryl has to admit that three weddings is more than she and her husband, Hugh, can realistically afford.

The solution? A triple wedding! At first, it’s a tough sell to the girls, and juggling three sets of future in-laws is a logistical nightmare. But when Hugh loses his teaching job, and Meryl’s aging mother suddenly moves in with them, a triple wedding is the only way to get all three sisters down the aisle. When the grand plan becomes public, the onslaught of media attention adds to Meryl’s mounting pressure. Suddenly, appearances are everything – and she will do whatever it takes to keep the wedding on track as money gets tight, her mother starts acting nutty, and her own thirty year marriage starts to unravel.

In the weeks leading up to the nuptials, secrets are revealed, passions ignite, and surprising revelations show Meryl and her daughters the true meaning of love, marriage and family. Jamie Brenner’s The Wedding Sisters invites readers to the most unpredictable wedding of the year


The Wedding Sisters by Jamie Brenner is published in paperback by St Martin’s Press on 7th June and can be pre-ordered from Amazon.  I received an advance review copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I am obsessed with books.  In fact, I'd rather be reading than doing anything else.   I enjoy trying out new books and new authors; I do like to "mix and match" genres.  I often have access to books before they are published and would welcome the opportunity to review most books... just not horror or sci-fi, please :)

  1. Congratulations to you and your daughter. Yes, probably a bit too close to home with the agonies of venue, dress and pleasing the in-laws!! 👰👗💐🍾💃
