The Blurb

Robin and Ellie have been best friends since childhood. They’ve been through everything together, from Robin coming out to the death of Ellie’s dad. But when Ellie asks Robin to be her maid of honour, Robin is reluctant.

It’s not that Robin isn’t happy for Ellie, she just hates everything about weddings and marriage – plus the guy Ellie’s engaged to. There’s also the matter of the crazy (not to mention dangerous) wedding rituals that couples are resorting to in the hope of securing a lifetime of happiness.

Despite her misgivings, Robin finally says yes. But as the wedding day approaches, she gets the feeling that everyone in the bridal party is out to get her. And it seems Ellie is willing to do anything for the perfect day. After all, marriage is about sacrifice…

The Review

Hehehehehe. I have not stopped laughing at this book since I finished it. So Happy For You is the tale of the modern bride and how wedding warfare can damage long lasting friendships.

This is the story of Robin who has been asked by Ellie (her best friend of forever) to be the Maid of Honour at Ellie’s upcoming wedding. The only problem (well not the only problem – the first of many, many problems) is that Robin doesn’t believe in marriage. She is against it on a fundamental level. Ultimately, Robin agrees to do it for the love of her best friend. However, when strange  and deadly things start happening during the wedding party Robin begins to question whether she should be involved in the wedding at all.

So Happy for You was such a genuine surprise. I laughed, I cried out in shock and I tore through the pages to find out what happened next. It truly was a hilarious wedding romp that would make anyone question whether a wedding correlates with the sanctity of marriage and maybe, just maybe think again before throwing a massive nuptials ceremony…or accepting the responsibility of being the Maid of Honour.
