Can this wedding be saved?

Up-and-coming floral designer Cara Kryzik is about to score the wedding of a lifetime--one that will solidify her career as the go-to-girl for Savannah society nuptials. The only problem is, life seems to be conspiring against her. Cara's implacable father, "The Colonel", doesn't believe in Cara's business savvy and is about to call in his twenty-thousand-dollar loan. Then, on the morning that someone steals her dog, Cara's refrigerator goes on the blink, turning twelve thousand dollars' worth of gorgeous blooms into road kill. And if that's not enough, the dog-napper, Jack Finnerty, turns up at her latest wedding and then mysteriously leaves her stranded on the dance floor.

All this turmoil will be solved if Cara can pull off the lavish Trappnell-Strayhorn wedding. The payday will solve all her problems--even the looming problem of a celebrated florist named Cullen Keane who is moving into her turf from Charleston. But the wedding is in six weeks, the bride is acting strangely (even for a bride) and the stepmother of the bride is becoming Cara's biggest headache. What Cara needs is to focus, but that's not easy when Jack is turning up at every wedding in Savannah (the man seems to know everybody), with Cara in his sights and seduction on his mind.

When Brooke Trappnell spirals into a shocking crisis and the wedding is in jeopardy, Cara must come to the rescue and figure out what she really believes in. Is it love? Is it her own strength? In the end, for everyone, "Save the Date" has more meanings than one. Told with Mary Kay Andrews's trademark wit and keen eye for detail, Save the Date is one you won't want to miss.

In my fledgling quest to read at least one book from every fiction shelf at the library, I was compelled to select between Mary Kay Andrews and V.C. Andrews, a choice I did not relish, but Mary Kay ultimately won out (as I am no longer thirteen, ha!). I rarely read "chick lit," and while I had every intention of giving 'Save the Date' the benefit of the doubt, regarding it as an escape/holiday read, this was difficult: soooooo many mentions of what people look like and what they are wearing every time they enter a scene, including name brands; characters behaving falsely solely to further the plot; and female antagonists stereotyped by having had plastic surgery and wearing expensive clothing/too much makeup. Though the writing was marginally edgier than I had expected, by the time I reached the conclusion I'd become too irritated and exhausted by all of the tropes of the genre to have enjoyed the experience much.

Excellent book that shares the life of a florist and the challenges of booking weddings. Of course there is a delightful love story and problems and dogs and holds your interest the whole way through, I have enjoyed each book she writes. Light and easy read for the beach.
