I loved this book, it was funny, light, cheesy, a great chick lit read and I enjoyed it so much I bought the other two books in the series and read them all back to back.

I think most of us can identify with the main character Josie in terms of the disaster elements of the book, and then wish we were here in the romance side of the book.

I think this would make an hilarious film.

If you're looking for Shakespeare this ain't it, but if you want a feel good, light hearted rom-com well read on. Personally I liked it, the easiness of the story cheered me up. It's funny and sweet because most of us have that over bearing mother that wants to set us up with one hair brained scheme or another.

The story focuses on Josephine McMaster (Josie for short) who has an off the reservations mother, that wants to see her married, because by her standards married = happy. Josie is pretty chill/laid back and when she along with everyone in the country hear about Bridesmaid Lotto contest thrown by a rich girl and her rich fiance, who happens to be related to Jake Hall [the books Chris Evans, if you don't know who he is google him because you're missing out], she doesn't care and won't enter much to everyone's shock. But mommy dearest decides to enter Josie and well, it is Josie's book so she wins one of the coveted spots. The story ensues and shenanigans bring and the drama of a bitchy backstabbing roommate make for a good fun read.

Obviously, Josie and Jake hit it off and end the book as a couple. A lot of people felt the book was too superficial and the characters were not well developed and argued this was not a romance, which like I said at the beginning this is a PG-13 rom-com.

I dithered between a 2 and a 3 for this book. On the plus side, it is a great concept and a lovely quick read for a rainy Sunday afternoon when I was trying to avoid housework.

On the negative side...there are spelling errors littered throughout, especially words like of/off, which grated, and words repeated within sentences. The writing is fairly basic with the author TELLING us how everyone is feeling or what they are doing, rather than SHOWING us, and it was very much...then they did this and then they did that. The characters are cliched and you're reminded of Bridget Jones, Shopaholic and The Devil wears Prada, amongst others...and speaking of characters, I reached the end with little clue as to what any of them look like, other than 'gorgeous' or 'disgusting' (and the latter seemed to be solely based on his big teeth with braces). I found the diary bits boring, skipping most of them, and the nickname 'McMaster the disaster', no longer seemed relevant.

Despite my harsh critique I'll probably buy the next book, at a good price, in the hope that the author's writing (and editing) skills have improved with experience, as the story concept is good and she has potential. Would make a great 'chick flick'!

The stars are given for the plot idea and little else. I will confess to skipping entirely the diary entries, I just wasn't interested.

With the chick-lit genre you know pretty much in advance how the plot will roll with the only difference being the choice of spanner the writer throws in the spokes so how the story progresses is not a problem; no, it's the characters and the lack of substance and continuity.

The characters were one dimensional with very little in the way of redeeming features, ie, I had no idea Josie and Calla had been friends since school until the end of the book. Of course it may have been mentioned in a diary segment...
It seemed they had been assigned their chick-lit roles and anything not supporting that got stripped away.

You'd expect the competition for the affections of Jake Hall would have been prime source material for loads of conflict and humour but there was none except for unexplained dirty looks.

I won't be continuing with this series.

I had'nt read this author before, but as it was free thought why not! It was thoroughly enjoyable. After a hard day at work, when all was done I started to read.
I loved Josie and her friends and laughted a lot as I am a clumsy person too. As normal I couldnt sleep so sat reading till three in the morning to finish the book.
Today I downloaded Gamble on Engagement and can't wait to see what happens, the baking will have to wait!!!!

If you want a light easy funny read with and ending that makes you want to read on this is for you.

Will definately recommend it to my friends and will watch out for the other Rachel Aster books.
Sometimes all you need is a book to make you feel good and laugh and your stress is halved.

So glad I tried Rachel out.

Wow. And not a good wow.
Chick lit going on and on and on about shoes and clothes and shopping and more clothes and more shopping and accessories and more clothes shopping and oh my god it's all fabulous. Oh I forgot about all the paparazzi.
*shudders*
A friend of mine said it's funny and great and I should give it a try.
The only reason I finished it (and I'm surprised I did) was because I was trying to find *something* I liked.
I didn't like the lead character. She was shallow and vain. The lead man -- what was the point of him even being in the book? There were zero sparks in the few times he actually made an appearance.
About the only person I liked was the token gay guy for the straight girl.
Yeah. I won't be going for any other books.
