the fretter returns

     Amazingly enough,  the phone is still not ringing and email is all ads...  I will confess to devouring many romances in my misspent life-gothics, bodice-rippers, chick lit, you name it but my patience has ebbed in recent years.  HOWEVER, I have a hot one for you-Bride of the Living Dead by Lynne Murray.  Guaranteed feel-good reading...
     This book is everyday life at its most irritating, funny and wonderful.  The cast of characters leaves nothing out.  Even the most unlikeable, or the others being unlikeable, are completely believable and you become absorbed into the plot.
     You have Daria and Oscar, who meet and fall in love.  Then friends of both that anyone would kill for.  Then two dysfunctional families, including a control freak sister and a crazy uncle.  Then a REALLY crazy ex-wife.
     The plot centers on Daria and Oscars wedding and the planning thereof and includes ALL the zaniness you would expect.  I won't give away any more-just read it!
