getting spliced - the manhattan way.
on 28 June 2004
Our heroine, Becky Bloomwood, has finally snared the man of her dreams, the handsome and successful Luke Brandon. Together they live in New York and are about to get married. The only trouble is that Becky has somehow got herself into the position of having not one, but TWO weddings looming on the horizon, one in the States and one in England, both scheduled for the same day! On top of that she has the prospective mother-in-law from hell, Elinor Sherman, to contend with. This is a funny, and at times, very moving book. The unspeakable stresses of getting married are captured beautifully here. Anyone who has ever got spliced will sympathise with Becky wanting to reach for the vodka bottle every time somebody mentions the word "wedding" in the weeks running up to it! This is also a fun insight into the whole unreal world of planning a New York society wedding, where you're judged by how many stores you've got your wedding list registered at, and where wedding cakes start off at a 1000 dollars a time! This is cool chick lit of the highest order, recommended.
