Read in July, 2012

A breezy romantic comedy with strong political undertones about a gay wedding planner in New York City and his newspaper columnist boyfriend. They stir up a huge protest movement by suggesting that gay men who service the wedding industry should stop doing so until there is marriage equality in the United States. They also call for a gay boycott of marriage ceremonies and receptions. Political conviction is put to the test when the columnist's brother and the wedding planner's sister announce they will be married. Do the activists stick to their guns and boycott their own family celebration? The suspense and the humor in the book will keep most readers happily turning pages. A good example of how a 'frothy' romance can introduce serious subject matter without any loss of entertainment value.
