The premise--getting dumped by the groom at the last minute--is believable. So too, is the idea of not forfeiting the cost of the honeymoon. And the down-to-earth maid of honor who tries to help the bride cope is realistic. But, from that point on, all bets are off. THERE IS NO SPOILER. I won't tell you more of the plot. That would be as mean as snatching the bouquet from the gal next to you.
Orsoff's use of dialogue is excellent. Thoughts and conversations flow easily. Settings and descriptions are well-painted, giving the reader enough to understand the author's intent. The plot points drive the story's engine without allowing any of the chapters to drag. And the back story is brief, without belaboring the essential facts. If that weren't enough, who wouldn't identify with the protagonist; that poor bride!
This one's a light read; as sassy as that adorable flower girl who sticks out her tongue as the photographer snaps her picture.
And it IS very funny. Funny in a slapstick, corny way but funny nonetheless.
Lizzie Mancini is jilted at the alter the day before her wedding by her live in boyfriend of 5 years. He says he's not ready for marriage so Lizzie decides to not cry about it and go on her honeymoon anyway. May as well right? It's paid for and instead of going back to the apartment they share she may as well go on a vacation because after getting dumped before her wedding she needs it.
At the airport with her friend Jane seeing her off, Lizzie is approached by the slick looking Michael, a fellow passenger on his way to Belize. He gets her talking and Lizzie being too friendly for her own good tells him her story. Michael volunteers to pose as her husband so she won't stick out lonely at her couples only hotel. Jane sees Michael's gold chain, slicked back hair and feels uneasy right off. Lizzie is TOO friendly for her own good and agrees.
Of course, as the cover shows, Michael ends up dead and Lizzie is the prime suspect. Seems Michael was an artifact smuggler and involved in local Belize drug cartels.
Between too many characters, Lizzie being a ditzy, trust friend Jane coming to the rescue with her spy gear and money at her disposal, scuba potential love interest Jack and a host of other characters from Michael's drug dealing family to corrupt police and...a turtle, Ms. Orsoff starts weaving a convoluted mystery.
This book IS funny because Lizzie is so ditzy sometimes and Jane is a wannabe PI spy so they have some zany moments but the mystery just gets more and more confusing to where you're AT the end and it's still not solved, 5 new character are introduced and you can't keep up. The mystery is unrealistic and the procedures following Lizzie's arrest and escape from jail so she can find the killer on her own but it's a light read if you're in the mood for a laugh at some corny people.
Overall, DON'T go into it wanting to solve the mystery because it will just give you a headache trying to keep up. Just laugh and read because there are some funny one-liners here. It's overall forgettable as a whole but you'll remember one of two funny moments.
Lizzy has just been jilted the night before her wedding, when her fiance comes clean with her and confesses that he's really not the marrying type. He's about taken everything when he leaves her standing in the apartment all alone. Lizzy is mad, but not really that broken hearted like she thought she'd be. She decides to go on the honeymoon alone, since it's already paid for anyhow. At the Airport she runs into a man named Micheal, who her friend Jane immediately labels a dangerous drug dealer. After they talk a little more on the plane, Lizzy agrees to let him pretend to be her husband for the trip. The two of them however, will not be sharing the same room or the same hotel. While on the honeymoon, Lizzy meets a delicious hunk of a man by the name of Jack. Now she just has to find a way to get rid of Micheal. They stage a big blow up on the beach and Micheal storms out, saying that he wants a divorce. Later the night Micheal is found dead on the beach, and Lizzy is prime suspect. Lizzy doesn't know what to do, because every time she opens her mouth, she keeps digging a bigger & bigger hole. With her one and only phone call, she calls her friend Jane. When Jane shows up things get even worse.
