Cool Novel To Read: For The Love Of Friends

Debut Novel by Sara Goodman Confino!

Wedding Season

In my lifetime, I have been in five weddings total. Unlike the main character Lily Weiss in, For The Love Of Friends those weddings were spaced out over a year apart each. Being in one wedding can be stressful (AND EXPENSIVE!) however, being in five weddings in six weeks sounds like a legit nightmare.

Honestly, the idea truly makes me want to vomit in my mouth.

For The Love Of Friends

Lily, is a 32-year-old, single (gasp!) professional who is a talented writer (an underutilized talent at her full-time job with a science foundation) with a big family, a nosy mother, and too many friends. Most importantly, the protagonist in this novel is a well-rounded character, that I would love to be friends with. Lily, is genuinely happy for all the couples she will be helping down the aisle; however the stress of five weddings in six weeks takes its toll on this professional bridesmaid.  She uses these overwhelming situation(s) as an opportunity to vent anonymously online with a blog titled, “Bridesmania.”

“Bridesmania,” is Lily’s platform to vent about mean girl bridesmaids, the expenses incurred during all wedding related preparation and events, body shaming retail staff, and out-of-control anxious brides-to-be. This debut novel is a fun story with comedic elements that blends seamlessly into the drama as it unfolds before our eyes.

The heart of this story is a romance, however it’s not in the way you’d expect. This slow burn love story isn’t the main focus of this novel, but a perfect addition to the overall plot. A nice cake topper if you will!
