  • Friendship and family

    Best friends who have a falling out when one continues to live her dreams and one stays behind. They lose touch, they think the other has it all, and then they find out the truth about what happens when they parted ways. Circumstances bring them back together and they start to open up to each other, learn about their past and current lives, and open their hearts to what they each lost when they stopped being friends. Bree and Lauren are high school graduates when they part and now as adults, they are brought back together in a time of their lives when they are both fighting to keep their happiness. It only makes sense that they lean on each other, reconnect, and help each other out in this time of upheaval and drama. I loved watching them walk carefully around each other, seeing the figure out if the other is willing to accept their apology, and if they would be able to accept the apology. My Ex-Best Friends Wedding is a wonderful story about the power of female friendship, family, and forgiveness. Wendy Wax has written an amazing story with powerful messages, friendships, and family.

  • A perfect book to read at the beach

    My Ex-Best Friend’s Wedding is about forgiveness, friendship and family. I thought the story was easy to read with realistic characters and situations. I enjoyed Wendy Wax’s beautiful descriptions of the Outer Banks which brought this rugged coastline alive for me. I like the idea of a wedding dress that is worn by generations of women. It may be altered, but it never loses that special fairytale quality. Wendy Wax has a conversational writing style which makes the book relaxing and easy to read. The point-of-view alternates between Kendra, Lauren and Brianna. This allows readers to see the various situations from each woman’s perspective. The women were complex characters whose emotions leaped from the pages. I wish Spencer had been as developed. I felt he was neglected though he comes across as a warm, loving and interesting man. We see how mistakes and miscommunication affect relationships. I do want readers to know that the story contains foul language and intimate situations. I liked the one of my favorite books was recommended for one of Brianna’s patrons (Discovery of Witches) plus the television show Say Yes to the Dress (they even visit Kleinfeld’s). It was interesting to learn more about a writer’s life. Their work does not end when they finish the book (edits, publicity, marketing). My Ex-Best Friend’s Wedding is a light relaxing story that is the perfect book to read at the beach, beside a pool or next to a lake.

  • Not really a funny book...

    This isn't a funny book. But if it was, it would take away alot from the storyline. I absolutely loved this book! I feel like I lived the whole story with characters!

  • An endearing story

    The theme of forgiveness runs through Wendy Wax's "My Ex-Best Friend's Wedding". Lauren, a 40 year old writer living in New York, has been estranged from her childhood best friend Brianna for 20 years and rarely returns to her hometown. Newly engaged, Lauren and her fiance travel to Lauren's hometown for him to meet her mother Kendra. When a long kept secret of Kendra's is revealed, Lauren's life is shaken to the core. Several experiences cause Lauren to evaluate personal relationships, and in the book ends on a happy note. While this is a light read, it is also povides some thought-provoking moments. An enjoyable read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
