The Secret Bridesmaid

St. Martin’s Griffin. May 2021. 400p. ISBN 9781250817747. $30.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Dressing up like Chewbacca for a Star Wars wedding or dyeing her hair to match the rest of the bridal party is par for the course for Sophie Breeze; it makes her the perfect bridesmaid in every situation and the perfect undercover plant at the weddings of her clients. Problem solving and dealing with all of the minutiae of weddings is Sophies forte and she’s turned it into her perfect job—that is, until she meets her biggest challenge ever: Lady Cordelia Swann. The stubborn bride-to-be is dead set against Sophie’s help and turns every item on the wedding to-do list into an impossible and hilarious hurdle. Reunite Oasis and borrow the crown jewels? That should be easy. The one bright spot in the farce is the bride’s older brother, who appreciates Sophie’s quirky sense of humor and seemingly unending devotion to his difficult sister. But when chaos ensues and the upcoming wedding seems to be imploding from within, Sophie finds both her job and her heart on the line, for a bride who has truly put her through her paces.
VERDICT Fans of Bridget Jones’s Diary or Four Weddings and a Funeral will love this quirky, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy with heart.
