When the perfect man for you finally proposes, the next thing is to plan a wedding. No easy task but for Emma in The Wedding Bluff by Lilly Bartlett, it’s a doozy. You see her fiancé comes from a rich family. Filthy rich with a mansion and everything that goes with it. Her soon-to-be family wants to have a wedding they and all their marvelously wealthy friends would appreciate. Emma’s family is low on the money side—very, very low. And, her parents won’t accept any money from anyone. So Emma and her fiancé, Daniel, must figure out a way to merge the two worlds into one happy wedding party. Thus the wedding bluff. They–especially Emma—give a perfect wedding that both sides of the family will talk about for years.

What a funny read The Wedding Bluff by Lilly Bartlett is! Just the idea of planning a wedding that mingles the very rich and the not very rich into one occasion is enough to cause stress and lots of laughter. Imagine a bridesmaid named Uncle Barbara. Great writing provides wonderful characterization to the point of the reader thinking it’s their family in the story. I laughed and laughed and was amazed at Ms. Bartlett’s ability to create some hilarious ideas and plan an amazing wedding in the story to boot. Ms. Bartlett kept me guessing all the way through how the characters would work out the problem. The Wedding Bluff is a quick read and highly enjoyable. I recommend it with five thumbs up!
