Skinny Bitch Gets Hitched is another book in the Skinny Bitch series. (I had previously reviewed Skinny Bitch In Love.) The book starts with Clementine Cooper running her own restaurant and making a cake for the wedding of a relative of her boyfriend’s. While she is at his place working on the cake, she finds an engagement ring and thinks that Zach is going to propose to her. When she sees a different proposal at the wedding, with the ring she thought was hers, she gets upset and goes to her kitchen to bake. However, as the title suggests, Zach does later propose to Clem. The rest of the book is following her meeting Zach’s family and planning the wedding.
On top of the wedding planning, she is also waiting for a New York Times reporter to come to the restaurant and check out her food and hopefully get a mention in the Sunday Travel section. Her future mother-in-law is all about planning the wedding but seems to be coming up with all sorts of ideas that Clem wants nothing to do with. It seems that she barely has time to breathe and then she decides that she is going to open up another restaurant as well. Meanwhile, Zach’s Aunt sends her a marriage bucket list and she and her roomie Sara (also newly engaged) decide to try and complete them all! Whew. Just trying to remember all that tired me out – and I’m sure there’s some I’m missing!
I really enjoyed this book and the author’s writing style. It was a quick and easy read and an enjoyable story, despite all the stress our main character is under! There are a lot of different characters in this book – some new and some old and I found that the author did a great job telling us about each of them so that we feel like we know them and their relationships with the other characters. Put aside half a day and you’ll have no problem reading this chick-lit book in one sitting!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING VEGAN, SOMETHING BLUE . . .
For the second time in just a few short months, Clementine Cooper’s professional reputation hinges on one restaurant review. Clementine’s No Crap Café is poised to score the Holy Grail of publicity—a mention in the New York Times Sunday travel section—if Clem’s veggietastic lasagna can bowl over the food critic.
Clem has no time for distractions. Or surprises. But when her meat-eating millionaire boyfriend Zach Jeffries shocks her with a sweet and romantic marriage proposal, of course she says yes! Now she has to plan the most important menu of her life while fending off her domineering future mother-in-law’s extravagant plans for the wedding.
As if there wasn’t enough on her plate, Clem decides to open a second restaurant on her parents’ farm—Clem’s No Crap Outpost— against Zach’s advice. Just when she needs his support the most, Zach grows distant. The only person who really seems to understand is Clem’s friend and biggest competition, the cute vegan chef Alexander Orr. Putting out fires in the kitchen is easy—but in her relationship? Suddenly, her time with Alexander feels . . . hotter . . . than usual, and Clem starts to wonder if the charming carnivore she’s engaged to is really the man she should spend her life with.
