From the Back Cover
R.S.V.P. to the most riotous wedding of the year . . .
Lucy Jorik is the daughter of a former United States president.
Meg Koranda is the offspring of legends.
One of them is about to marry Mr. Irresistible--Ted Beaudine--the favorite son of Wynette, Texas. The other is not happy about it and is determined to save her friend from a mess of heartache.
But even though Meg knows that breaking up her best friend's wedding is the right thing to do, no one else seems to agree. Faster than Lucy can say "I don't," Meg becomes the most hated woman in town--a town she's stuck in with a dead car, an empty wallet, and a very angry bridegroom. Broke, stranded, and without her famous parents at her back, Meg is sure she can survive on her own wits. What's the worst that can happen? Lose her heart to the one and only Mr. Irresistible? Not likely. Not likely at all . . .--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition. See all Product description

There are so many bad romance novels. So many romantic novelists whose work is curate's egg. This is not true so far as I have found with the work of Mrs Philips (I am five novels in). Mrs Philips writes sure fire, engrossing, high quality romantic fantasy. As this is just what I am in the mood for I can not recommend her more to those of similar tastes.
Here we have a lovable heroine. A handsome and clever leading man. Both flawed and funny enough to be likable and not flat and insufferable as many romantic characters are.
At the start of the novel he is to marry heroines best friend at the end the heroine (with best pal as bridesmaid). Set in the grooms parochial home town there is judgement all around for the protagonists but it all comes right in the end. This sounds like a nauseating daytime film but in SEP's hands it is a charming and readable fantasy.
If taking a break from reality is your thing then I would highly recommend doing it with a SEP. This is a good example of her genre. Give it a bash.
The fact that Megs parents are famous/rich, never made her being destitute really believable, contrary too heroines in previous SEP-books.
But one big pre; reading about all these characters from previous books, made me re-read their stories again (Lady be Good, Fancy Pants, First Lady). Great stories, better than this one! Maybe because they also had other lovestory's in it, besides the love story of the main characters.
When the book arrived at my door, i thought YES! its finally here and i can get cracker lacking in reading it. I have always loved reading Susan Elizabeth Phillips books especially the chicago star series, so it was highly unlikely that i be disappointed with her new one right..? Wrong!
i thought the character of Ted and other side characters were very one dimentional. They were too plain and boring. The plot line dragged trimendiously and became unexciting in some aspects of the plot. Also for the first time ever i could actually put the book down without the urge to pick it up. It was like the author was just writing to fill the pages. I execpted there to be more growth in the storyline before anything happened between the two main leads.
However, having said that i did enjoy reading about Meg and able to explore her mind throughtout the book. There were times when the book evoked emotion in me but this remained low.
Overall, if you are a fan of Susan Elizabeth Phillips then i would say read this however i would recommened another one of her books of you aren't.
Although I don't personally rate this book as one of my all time favourites, I still couldn't wait to pick it up again and again to finish the story, and I will definitely read it again and again.
I loved the character of Meg because of her tenacity and grit, and think other people have missed the whole point of the story. Surely Meg actually prevented Ted and Lucy from ruining their lives as they may have done if they had married? The small minded (to begin with) characters in the book assumed that Meg had wanted to destroy Ted and Lucy's relationship out of spite, which when you read the WHOLE book, you understand that Meg knows her friend so well that she only wants the best for her.
Anyway, this is definitely worth reading, and I can't wait for Lucy's story.
