9780758209962: Getting Married

You are not the first, and you are definitely not the last.
. . .And probably you are not the best.


It's never a good idea to take messages scrawled in bar bathrooms personally. Eva Lockart knows this, really she does. Still, such things tend to take on a weird sort of significance when one is in the throes of a panic attack prompted by irrational jealousy of one's boyfriend's ex-wife. Something that's been happening lately--a lot. . .

Not that Eva has anything to worry about, really. "X" (she has a name, but why dwell on details?) is long gone, and Will loves Eva now--loves her enough, in fact, to want to move in and get married. So, she's got a guy she's crazy about, a thriving business, and "fun" wedding plans to make, including finding an affordable reception site that doesn't have dead animal heads hanging from the walls, a non-poofy dress that adequately corrals her cleavage; and a cake that isn't orange inside. Still, what's a little stress in exchange for wedded bliss? When Eva thinks of all the married people she knows, she's positive that this may turn out to be the biggest mistake of her life because all those "married people" are now either acrimoniously divorced, or seemingly on the brink.

But once the bridal ball is rolling downhill, it's damn near impossible to stop it without getting crushed. And now, the fact that Will's done this once before has Eva running that much faster to make things perfect--and getting herself into more trouble than she ever dreamed possible. . .

About the Author:

Theresa Alan is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who lives in Denver, Colorado. Her novels Who You Know (which spent several weeks on a bookseller's bestseller list), Spur of the Moment, The Girls' Global Guide to Guys, and Girls Who Gossip are all from Kensington's Strapless line; The Dangers of Mistletoe was published in December 2006; and her novella, Santa Unwrapped, can be found in the bestselling anthology Jingle All the Way with Fern Michaels and Linda Lael Miller. Theresa also has novellas in Sex and the Single Witch and I Shaved My Legs for This?! She was named Colorado Romance Writers' Author of the Year for 2004. She is hard at work on her next book.

From Booklist:

Eva didn't think the marriage thing was for her until she met Will. Her parents' troubled marriage didn't exactly set the best example, but when smart, stable, and charming Will proposes, she's willing to put her doubts aside, at first. Soon, though, the pressures of planning a wedding, adjusting to sharing a home, and meeting the demands of her stressful consulting job push her to the brink, and she turns to drugs. This isn't your typical wedding-themed romance. Most chick-lit tomes don't explore such issues as addiction, the long-term effects of divorce, and exactly what constitutes infidelity. That's what sets this novel apart, and Alan tempers the seriousness with doses of humor for a compelling mix. To that, add well-developed characters, interesting subplots, and a satisfying happy ending, and this is a strong effort that will surprise and delight readers. Aleksandra Kostovski
