Amanda's Wedding by Jenny Colgan

Amanda’s Wedding by Jenny Colgan: yet another “zany chick” book. I just can’t seem to get away from them.

Anyway, this book is the story of Mel and Fran and their so-called “friend” (we all have them - the people that you’re nice to but secretly can’t stand) Amanda. Amanda is rich and snobby and getting married to a super nice guy that Mel had a crush on in college, Fraser. With several willing accomplices including the groom’s brother, they set out to stop Amanda’s wedding.

For whatever reason, I enjoyed this book much more than most of the books in this genre that I’ve been reading lately. I enjoyed the characters, the situations they got themselves into, and really wanted to find out what was going to happen in the end, especially after a few key events unfolded. It definitely stands out in the genre, so if you’re looking for a book like this, this one’s a good one to choose.
