The subject material was good, but the author wrote mostly about herself instead of Grace Kelly. It seemed she was more taken with the fact that she herself was one of the Bridesmaids and therefore went on and on about her own life. I found it somewhat offensive.

I've read this before, but after learning it was no longer in print, I found it at a used bookstore and bought it! Such a good look into the wedding of Princess Grace and who she was before the wedding.

I realized after I started this that I'm not interested in Grace Kelly's bridesmaids and that the author had only a superficial relationship with her. I couldn't finish.
