A different fiction-chick-lit read. Tried not to be, but come on, with a title like that, do you ever think a dude is going to pick this up? Plus, check out the cover. I don't think so! Even though most of the characters, some were men, but weak men, men who loooooved their mothers. No thanks. The whole thing takes place at a wedding and each chapter is told from a different point of view of a different single. So a different layout, which was kind of nice, but there were too many characters for my taste. I couldn't keep anyone straight for most of the book. Or forgot about them until they turned up later and then I had to take a moment to remember who they were and their back story. I did like how they all intertwined a lot though. That was probably my favorite part. But the amount couldn't make up for it. An okay read, but could have been tighter.
