Book Description

Getting her to the wedding on time is the least of his worries...


Kate Preston just moved to New York, but she has to get back to Seattle in time for her best friend's wedding. Joe Firretti is moving to Seattle, and has to get there in time or risk losing his new job. But fate's got a sense of humor.


Kate goes from rubbing elbows on a plane with a gorgeous but irritating strange (doggone armrest hog) to sharing one travel disaster after another with him on four wheels. Joe thought he had his future figured out, but sometimes fates has to knock you over the head pretty hard before you see what opportunity is standing in front of you...in a really god-awful poufy bridesmaid dress.


Praise for Julia London:


"London knows how to keep pages turning...winningly fresh and funny."—Publishers Weekly


"London's ability to draw real-life characters and settings is superb...her characters cope with life's curveball's and keep on trucking."—RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ stars

3.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Romp! October 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This novella was a lovely way to pass the afternoon. It is a mixture of Plane, Trains, and Automobiles and When Harry Met Sally but this Harry and Sally don't wait 20 years to get together.

This is a sweet fun romance that is a little madcap and a lot charming. The heroine is a great with a self-deprecating sense of humor and the hero knows a good thing when he sees it.

I would have liked it better if the ending was more developed and I would have liked a bit more of an epilogue as well but all in all fun stuff.

I was given this book for my honest review. So there you have it.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars for The Bridesmaid November 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I recieved The Bridesmaid as an ARC for an honest review, which did not sway my thoughts of this book whatsoever. I would give this book a 4.5. The first few chapters started off a little sluggish for me, but once Kate and Joe got off the plane in Dallas things picked up and I absolutely fell in love with both characters and their story.

They start off heading to Seattle for completely different reasons - Kate to visit home for a wedding and Joe to relocate for his dream job. Their lives converge on the plane as they embark on a journey, both physical and emotional, as they try to beat the odds that seem to be stacked against them by the travel gods to make it to Seattle on time. I loved how Joe was almost immediately so open with himself about how he felt about Kate. And, I adored Kate's wacky personality. I won't spoil the ending but I will say it was great! I would have enjoyed an epilogue though to see where the future led them. Hopefully, since this is a novella there is a sequel in the works that will clue us in.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read for a rainy afternoon..... October 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed reading The Bridesmaid. Who amongst us has not had to wear a dreaded bridesmaid dress that, while detested for simply existing, we protected at all costs simply to make our friends/family happy? Seriously though, the characters were likeable and sweet, even humorous considering their cross country adventure. While a bit predictable, it was sweet. Definitely a good read on a rainy afternoon.
