A hilarious and heartwarming debut novel of big dreams, big days, and even bigger lies. . .
Molly Harrigan has always dreamed of the perfect wedding, she just never thought she'd be in scores of them as the bridesmaid. Now on her thirtieth birthday–after her younger, married sister announces that she's pregnant–Molly's old dream takes on an all-new urgency.
It doesn't help matters that her best friend Brad drops the bomb that he's engaged to his spoiled brat of a girlfriend. Devastated, Molly does what almost no one in the same situation would do. With a giant wedding fund burning a hole in her pocket (courtesy of her late, beloved grandmother), Molly hires a fiancé.
Now armed with the perfect boyfriend, Molly stages a whirlwind courtship, engagement, and grand-ballroom-style wedding. Lying to her friends and family is a small price to pay for cake-tastings, gift registries, and dress fittings. But lying to herself could cost Molly her one chance at true love–with a man whose feet are turning as cold as her own. . .

Sawyer's heroine is a character familiar to most chick-lit readers--the perpetual bridesmaid. This particular singleton decides she is not going to miss out on planning her dream wedding, even if it means buying a groom. Molly hires Justin, a male escort, to play her boyfriend for a year and stage an engagement. She plans an extravagant wedding--Plaza Hotel, Vera Wang gown, and all the other accoutrements, deceiving family and friends. And on the day of her fake wedding, she realizes that she has known "the one" all along. Though the plot is a retread (Sawyer even references the movie Can't Buy Me Love), readers will stick with it just to see how far Molly will take the charade. Molly remains a sympathetic character even though her choices seem implausible. Weddings are a popular subject for romance readers so this book is sure to be popular. Aleksandra Kostovski
