Review: The One With The Wedding Dress (bridesmaids part 2) by Erin Lawless

Nora Dervan is ready for her Happy Ever After. With her darling Harry waiting at the altar, and all her family and friends around her. She is certain that her special day will not be forgotten/will be one to remember…

But with her four bridesmaids hiding more secrets, than bottles of champagne. Will her big day be remembered for all the right reasons?

Bea has barely gotten past the fact that her two best friends are dating, and now they’re engaged, whilst cupid’s arrow points in a forbidden direction for Cleo. She is so distracted by her off limits, hot new colleague that she has forgotten Daisy, who has been left dreading the singles table. There’s more romance in the cheesy pick- up lines than Sarah’s own marriage, which hasn’t turned out as she hoped it would be.

Review: I have been waiting for the second installment in this series for what seems like ages now and, let me tell you, I was not disappointed. I devoured this whole lovely second part in one sitting, laughing and even reading aloud bits I found hilariously funny to my poor fiancĂ©e! I loved getting back into the lives of Nora, Bea, Cleo, Daisy and Sarah, and of course their accompanying love interests! I am now officially BFFs with all of them I feel I know them so well. If the first part in this series was about setting the scene and showing us what each character was going through this was about getting to know them even more and of course, finding out more about the wedding! 

This of course is the hunt for the wedding dress, but it is so much more than that. Of course a trip that involves trains hire cars, a dodgy pub and a B&B is going to be fraught with great stories, but we get to learn so much more about these girls in this installment. We get to meet Nora's mother and really find out what this relationship is. We learn about possible tensions in the group and a few secrets about some of these bridesmaids finally come to the surface. 

Of course the major thing from the last installment was possible new couples being formed and we get a little insight into those relationships in this episode, just a tantalising amount. I was hoping there would be some sort of resolution but I'm kind of glad there's nothing set in stone as yet because that will just keep me wanting more until the next in the series in released-when is that please?

As last time, this whole 100 page is one succinct little book of its own, despite that fact that is is part of a series, there's definitely a build up and some massive climaxes and you're left feeling comforted but still wanting more, just like a book should be! It's great that it is so short but frustrating that I'll now have to wait for the next part-noooo! I loved this, read both parts now and then join me int he wait for this fab author to fill our greedy book-loving hands with part 3!
