Author Amber Laura has outdone herself with this incredible, fun novel about Charlie’s heroic attempt to plan her sister’s wedding.
Right from the start the reader is drawn into Charlie’s thoughts and feelings and despite the fact that she isn’t always entirely honest with herself, one mostly gets to know her weaknesses, her pain, her hopes and her fears through her interactions with other people.
I loved the witty dialogues supplemented by Charlie’s thoughts.
I loved the humorous note underlying the whole story – even at those points where Charlie opens up to Kantor, the creator of the mouthwatering almond cake (I demand a slice as recompensation for having to read about this heavenly cake without ever getting any!) and finally admits to her weak side (which made me cry while I was still smiling).
