A wedding dress passed down through generations unravels the tangled threads of three women's lives in a novel of friendship, family, and forgiveness from the USA Today bestselling author of Ten Beach Road.
Prized and stored away for safekeeping, the timeless ivory wedding dress, with its scooped neck and cleverly fitted bodice, sits gently folded in its box, whispering of Happily Ever Afters. To Kendra, Brianna, and Lauren it's a reminder of what could have been, the promise of a fairy tale, and a friendship torn apart. But as Kendra knows firsthand: it wasn't the dress's fault.
Once closer than sisters, Lauren and Bree have grown up and grown apart, allowing broken promises and unfulfilled dreams to destroy their friendship. A successful author, Lauren returns home to the Outer Banks, fianc� in tow, to claim the dress she never thought she'd wear. While Bree, a bookstore owner, grapples with the realities of life after you marry the handsome prince. As the former best friends wrestle with their uncertain futures, they are both certain of one thing: some betrayals can never be forgiven.
Now on the eve of her daughter Lauren's wedding, Kendra struggles with a secret she's kept for far too long. And vows to make sure the dress will finally bring Lauren and Bree back together--knowing they'll need each other to survive the coming storm.
My Review Of
My Ex-Best Friend’s Wedding
I quickly slipped into a world of ex-best friends, a small picturesque beach town and a book of secrets and forgiveness. Lauren, a very successful author, Bree a would be author and book store owner and Kendra, mother to Lauren and mother like to Bree.
Lauren and Bree have not really spoken in decades, ever since Bree backed out last minute on a lifetime dream of moving to New York City with Lauren where they both would become successful authors. Lauren has never forgiven Bree and Bree holds her own grudge against Lauren.
When Lauren becomes engaged to Spencer, the perfect man in my opinion, Lauren heads back home to the Outer Banks with Spencer.
What awaits Lauren is a huge surprise about her past and some truths about her friendship with Bree. I inhaled this book and pictured each and every scene in my mind.The characters really seemed so lifelike that I hated for this book to end!
I was rooting for Lauren and Bree to become friends again and for Kendra to come to terms with a past that she left behind long ago. Bree seemed to struggle in so many areas of her life and Lauren needed to come to terms with a betrayal so deep I felt that they could really use each other to lean on.
I loved this book, the characters , the setting and the story line. I honestly feel like I made a whole new set of friends!I quickly slipped into a world of ex-best friends, a small picturesque beach town and a book of secrets and forgiveness. Click To Tweet
