Welcome to the world of wedding planners! Cara Lockwood's debut novel I DO (BUT I DONT) is a hilarious romp of a book that isn't very serious on plot line but is fun to read. Lauren Crandell is a wedding planner, and she tells her stories about the botched weddings, the crazy weddings, and the outlandish weddings, including the two where she meets super gorgeous hunk fireman Nick Corona.
Her dilemma occurs when she feels the sparks flying between herself and Nick, but after meeting several times by accident, and finding that they both seem to have a mutual attraction, she finds out later that he is the groom of one of her brides. What is a girl to do?
Read along as Lauren works on some of these crazy weddings, figures out her own love life, deals with an aggressive boss and her aggressive cat Whiskers. As far as chick-lit is concerned, I don't feel there is anything special about this book. The narrator, Lauren, tends to get a bit chatty on occasion, but the story is fun and this book is a great summer read. This reader recommends I DO (BUT I DON'T).
The story is humorous and cute, and Nick is a very sexy hero. What I found annoying was the constant mention of Lauren's unruly hair. Okay already - uncle, we understand, it has a mind of its own... I liked the pacing of the story and since it's told from Lauren's point of view, we get to find out what's going on right along with Lauren (though I'm sure many a reader saw the truth coming from a mile away).
