I liked this book. The story line was pretty predictable but the story itself was pretty entertaining and kept me busy reading for a while.

I received a copy of Eat, Drink, and Be Married in exchange for an honest review. I've been having a lot of fun reading books that focus on weddings, as I am in the midst of planning my own. I definitely related with Hannah, the bride, who has become a bit of a bridezilla as her wedding day draws closer. I get the stress! Hannah is also dealing with not having her mother, who has passed away, there for the biggest day of her life. She does have her girlfriends rallying around her, but each woman is dealing with her own issue. There is Nina, who is pregnant and while her husband is ecstatic over the baby news, Nina is struggling with her own motherly issues. Zoe is refusing to admit she is in love with best friend Graham, and Kate is trying to find who she was before an abusive relationship sucked her soul. Through all their own issues and the stress of Hannah's wedding, the friends come together in an ending fit for chick lit!

I liked this book and each of the girls. I thought their stories were touched on enough but didn't feel like anyone got the shaft, and I got to know each character equally. I enjoy books that focus on great friendships between woman, and this book did just that. Why I am not giving the book four stars is because I didn't understand some of the writing. It was almost like this was written as a screenplay. For example, instead of saying something like "Zoe was angry again with what he was saying," it was written as "Angry again." I didn't quite get the clipped descriptions in a novel, and that was a bit distracting for me throughout. But other than that, a fun chick lit novel that I enjoyed reading.
**3.5 stars**

If you like chick-lit then Rebecca Bloom's book, Eat, Drink and Be Married will keep you entertained from Chapter One to the end credits. The writing is fast paced and funny, and as you would expect when three old college room-mates fly in to trip down the aisle behind their gal pal, Hannah, when she promises to love, honour and maybe obey - the emotional stakes are higher than a kite.

As with all long term friendships, stuff happened along the way; stuff that might be better kept in the box labeled `things-we-don't-discuss'. Events from the past do get an airing though, and at times it seems as if they might cause Nina, Kate and Zoe to bury the past, forget Hannah's trip down the aisle and trip back home pronto.

The four college room-mates all have issues that need to be faced: Zoe, masks her inner fragility with a self confident exterior, Nina's child within is begging for a little loving maintenance before she is ready to give sustenance to another, Kate, has to solve the problem of who she really is or wants to be, and Hannah, the bride-to-be, is haunted by an event from the past.

There's a diverse mix of subsidiary characters who wander in and out of the story, alternately helping or hampering the best friends as they struggle to come to terms with life past and present; particularly the fork in the road marked `how to overcome the past and move on'. The author sticks to the chick-lit genre by keeping the tone of the book light and fast moving. Rebecca Bloom demonstrates considerable writing skill in juggling both the plot points and the characters in a realistic and engaging manner. The dialogue is snappy with creative use of modern language.

I hate the term "chick-lit" so I immediately become wary of anything that might be labeled as such but this book was so well-written and heartwarming, I finished it in two nights! The friendships feel real and the character develpment is strong. I'm excited to read her other books. Thumbs up.
