Right time. Right dress. Right man

The author of The Yummy Mummy returns with a sparkling, hilarious look at what happens when you meet the wrong man at the right time.

Two weeks before her wedding, Stevie Jonson, a successful graphic designer in her mid-thirties, has got serious jitters. Is she finally growing up, or compromising horribly In love or in denial By the time Stevie steps into her 1930s vintage wedding dress for the last fitting, her life is coming apart at the seams. Her best friend, Lara, is moving to New York City, fulfilling Stevie's long-held dream of moving there herself; her parents' marriage is heading for the rocks; her teenage crush (The One That Got Away) is back in town, a reminder of everything her fianc isn't; and that niggling little voice in her head is getting louder all the time. As the clock ticks, a shocking secret threatens to bring Stevie's future crashing down around her.

A Bad Bride's Tale is a grown-up love story about marrying, mating, compromising . . . and how love doesn't have a timetable.

From Publishers Weekly:

Williams's infectious romp shows what happens just before a woman surrenders to respectable adulthood—nerve-jangling regret set to the tune of a loudly ticking biological clock. Magazine designer Stevie, 34, is poised to marry boyish and vulnerable Jez. Stevie is both excited and worried she's making the wrong choice when Sam, a photographer she's had a thing for since art school, shows up. But she gets hitched anyway and spends a hilariously horrid honeymoon in Thailand trying to ignore her incompatibility with Jez and avoiding London hipsters Seb and Katy—particularly Katy, who has a history with Stevie and, suddenly, the full attention of Jez. Every couple in the book seems mismatched, and as Sam lingers and serial-dating pal Lara turns a couple of heads, marriage-shaking trouble is in the offing. Williams (Yummy Mummy) fills the book with sharp lines and sharper summations of her characters' ever-changing states of affairs. The novel packs a lot of laughs and delivers a snazzy payoff in the last chapter. Take this one to the beach. (June)
