Bridesmaids by Jane Costello

The review for Bridesmaids is brought to you by Guest Reviewer, Nicole.

Four weddings.
Three disgruntled ex-boyfriends.
Two very effective 'chicken fillet' boob-enhancers.
And one gorgeous man...

With less than an hour to go before her best friend is to walk down the aisle, Evie is attempting to fulfil her most important role as bridesmaid: to deposit the bride at the start-line.

Although the odds appear stacked against her, she at least has her new 'chicken fillets' to boost her confidence. Until, that is, they are witnessed popping out of her dress by the dazzlingly handsome Jack.

Evie is 27, a sparkly, down-to-earth journalist who has never been in love and has started to think that she never will be. Small wonder, then, that the prospect of being a bridesmaid at so many impending wedding fills her with utter trepidation.

When Jack starts becoming a regular fixture at the nuptials, however, things really start looking up.

Only between her discovery that he's dating the stunning, self-obsessed Valentina, and an unfortunate incident with a 10- inch vibrator, not everything goes quite as Evie might have hoped...

From the get go Bridesmaids had me laughing.  Although first written in 2008, this book jumped out at me on the bookshelf and also heard from my friends that it had won an award too.

Everyone needs a friend like Evie, she would go above and beyond to make her friends happy and smile. I think a lot of girls would relate to her, her hang ups, confidence and wanting the guy that's already taken.

Jack, Evie's love interest takes a shine to Evie and throughout the book I love the chemistry and banter that they have. Jack seems as if he's too good to be true, even her mum loves him (Evie's mum is an eccentric do-gooder). I particularly like the way Jane Costello, shows just how close Evie and her mum get throughout the book, which finds her opening up to her. 

I loved loved loved this book, so good in fact I had to read it again straight away, not bad really as I couldn't put the book down and read it both times in a day.

Follow Evie on her journey with her university pals, which includes, laughter, tears and drama.
