Bridesmaids by Zara Stoneley #Review #RomCom #BlogTour

Bridesmaids

Meet Rachel, the beautiful bride with BIG plans for the perfect day! The venue is a castle and the dress is designer.  It’s just a shame her husband-to-be is a rat.

Maddie and Sally have only one thing in common – they both love the same man!

Beth is a newly single mum with a mystery baby daddy.  Surely the father isn’t someone the girls all know?

And then there’s Jane, the glue holding them all together, but being dumped doesn’t make her the happiest bridesmaid…especially with gorgeous flatmate Freddie complicating things.

Will the bride say, ‘I Do!’?  Or will her bridesmaids save the day…and find love along the way?

The most hilarious, feel-good rom com of the year!

My Review:

This definitely lives up to its billing as the most hilarious, feel-good rom com of the year as far as I’m concerned – it is simply hilarious!

The whole story is told from Jane’s point of view. Jane isn’t keen on weddings after being dumped on her hen night. That makes things difficult when her best friend, Rachel, announces she’s getting married and wants Jane to be chief bridesmaid. They’ve been friends since their school days and usually share everything but Jane knows a secret about Rachel’s husband to be and can’t decide whether to share it with her friend or not.

The other potential bridesmaids are three other school friends but there are secrets and surprises there, too! Sally has married Maddie’s high school sweetheart, Jack, and Maddie is secretly heartbroken by this. Beth turns down the opportunity to be a bridesmaid as she’s now a single Mum who won’t say who her son’s father is! With secrets, surprises, angst and hilarity, this is a brilliant and fun read with love at its heart. Jane’s predisposition to misinterpret comments and events makes it so easy for her to get things totally wrong, sometimes with consequences that had me laughing out loud.

Get ready for fun, drama, laughs and love in this heartwarming romantic comedy. It has great characters and explores the relationships between them in a manner that will put a smile on your face. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone looking for a highly entertaining story where so much either goes wrong or is misinterpreted with hilarious consequences but works out well in the end.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it – and thoroughly enjoying it!

She writes about friendship, dreams, love, and happy ever afters, and hopes that her tales make you laugh a lot, cry a little, and occasionally say ‘ahhh’.

Zara now lives in a Cheshire village with her family, a lively cockapoo called Harry, and a very bossy (and slightly evil) cat called Saffron.
