Format: Paperback
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.

What better way to get four old college room mates and best friends together then with a wedding? Hannah is about to say I do, with Nina, Kate and Zoe flying in to support their friend's nuptials. However, the past wasn't always a tidy place to be as memories flood back in all the friends. Will these women be able to walk down the aisle in support of Hannah or will the old times be too much to bare? Find out in, Eat, Drink and Be Married by Rebecca Bloom.

This book was an excellent chic-lit read. I found the characters realistically written, with just enough humour thrown in. I also found myself rooting for Hannah with a tear in my eye. Eat, drink and Be Married is a must-have for any home library - a book you will want to read over and over again.

Format: Paperback
There is nothing like having good friends that you can trust and count on. In this story, four such friends are getting together for a wedding. All of them are hiding a part of themselves from each other, even though it seems they are very close. My favorite character is Zoe because she seems to be the most real person, someone who you could hang around with and actually like. It's a light hearted chick lit book that has some true to life events.

I received a copy to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

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.
