(2007)
(Revenge of the Wedding Planner)
A novel by

 
 
"It was all such a holy mess. And Bill was being so decent
about it, really. He was being his usual loving and understanding self.
Patting me on the head for trying so hard, and failing miserably. I
couldn't stand it. It was like Dad's shocking death and Julie's mad affair
and even Mary's baby were all my fault, but he was still going to be nice
about it because he loved me. That made me so angry, I couldn't breathe.
None of it was my fault, none of it."

Mags Grimsdale is a "post-Goth" 39-year-old, happily married to Bill. She's
a mother of four and works as PA to the ultra-glamorous Julie, owner of
Dream Weddings. The two women are best friends as well as colleagues but
their relationship is tested to its limits when Julie embarks on a
passionate affair with a barman from Galway, who is twelve years her junior
and a dead ringer for the actor, Sean Bean.

Then the biggest wedding that Julie and Mags have ever dealt with goes
disastrously wrong, when Julie's toyboy lover, Jay O'Hanlon, trades her in
for a celebrity French model. Bill is almost killed in the fallout and
Julie is arrested for assault in the middle of the "Vampires & Rock Chicks"
themed marquee. Will Julie and Mags ever be friends again, and can Dream
Weddings rise from the ashes?
