- In "Eat, Drink and Be Married" (Self/iuniverse), author Rebecca Bloom
has blended just the right amount of hilarious dialogue that women savor when in the company of their best friends, with the right amount of tender moments shared during life's special events, to create a page-turning story that is chick lit at its finest!
When college girlfriends Kate, Nina and Zoë take a break from their busy schedules on opposite coasts to join their former roommate Hannah for her wedding in Lake Tahoe, they not only bring suitcases packed with 'what-not-to-wear' bridesmaid dresses, but baggage of a more emotional kind. Supported by a variety of eclectic characters determined to wreak havoc on their carefully organized lives, each woman is forced to come to terms with her past before she walks down the aisle.
Zoë must learn how to reveal a vulnerability that lies beneath her bravado before she can finally open her heart; Kate needs to reclaim her identity before she can regain her strut, and Nina must heal her own inner child so she can provide for another. And we can't forget Hannah, the bride, who needs to release a ghost in order to recover her spirit.
It takes a bottle of booze, a host of laughs, a hankie or two worth of tears, and 72 hours in the presence of those who know and love them the most to make the perfect recipe for four women to "Eat, Drink, and Be Married."
