Light and Tasty

Wedding Season
Katie Fforde
St. Martin’s Press, 2010

Sarah, a wedding planner who doesn't believe in marriage, must rely on the help of her friends Elsa and Bron if she is going to get through preparing for two weddings on the same day--one for a high-profile celebrity, and the other for her pregnant sister.

This light and easy British novel is a perfect read for the holidays. It’s not deep or demanding, and you can put it down and pick it up later and not have to worry about losing the plot in the meantime. The characters have some conflict, but not much, and everything works out reliably in the end. If you like your chick-lit a little more substantial, this is for you.
