Goodreads:  Ashley, just turning thirty, is stuck with a string of bad dates that keep getting worse. The last of her group of friends to be single, she’s quickly becoming hopeless about finding The One.

When a friend convinces her to attend a new-age workshop on making your dreams come true, she gets onto a roller coaster she can’t get off of. The poignant and hilarious comedy of errors begins. The workshop sweeps through her life like a tornado and turns her reality upside down. She is told: visualize it, and he will come. But Ashley takes it seriously, and before she knows it, she’s planning a wedding. There’s only one problem: there’s no groom.

Things quickly spiral out of control as one misunderstanding after another occurs, and Ashley’s friends and family find out a wedding is happening, and want to know who the groom is. Backed into a corner, she finds herself having to lie, and to make her wedding planning more and more a reality. Things intensify as Ashley chooses her bridesmaids and is caught in a whirlwind of looking for dresses, choosing a venue, finding a band, and everything else. Soon a date is set, invitations are sent out, and there is no backing out!

Kritters Thoughts:  A woman approaching 30 has found herself repeating bad dates and relationships, so after a conversation with her yoga teacher she decides to join him to a life workshop where they are advised to act like their dreams are coming true.  As her dream is to find and marry the One, her yoga teacher decides that planning a wedding will be like acting as if her dreams are coming true.  Queue her crazy friends and family and this book is definitely a fun read.

I loved reading the craziness of the wedding planning with the added addition of the lack of groom and trying to explain it all to her friends and family - it definitely made me laugh out loud a little and remember my craziness of planning and I clearly had a groom in mind! I think this would actually be a perfect read for a bride who is in process of planning to add some hilarity to what can be a stressful time.

Although it may be considered fluff, I like to read these every once in awhile for a quick and cute read, it was definitely entertaining!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
