Big, beautiful and rebellious, film critic Daria MacClellan is most comfortable in a monster movie poster T-shirt and blue jeans. Yet when family drama hijacks her engagement, she’s trapped into a formal wedding with her perfectionist, anorexic sister planning the whole thing. Daria adores her fiancé, but her wedding seems to be spiraling into a horror film. Will the spectre of a picture perfect wedding turn her into the Bride of the Living Dead?Author Lynne Murray has a fresh voice that will draw you into Daria’s life. Daria’s family and friends are unique and different, yet at the same time you’ll swear they could be your family, extended family and crazy college pals. You’ll be happy you don’t have Daria’s life, even as you envy her spunk, self-confidence, friends, and love of life (and her family, extended family and crazy pals).
It doesn’t matter whether you’re young, old, skinny or not-so-skinny, out-going or shy, you’ll get along with Daria and she’ll put you on the wedding invitation list. If they can pull off this wedding, it’ll make a great video, maybe even a movie. Luckily or maybe not so luckily, Daria’s friend is a videographer and is taping every little detail, the bad, the good and the relatives.
If you’re a fan of romantic comedies, you’ll probably like Bride of the Living Dead by Lynne Murray. In fact, you might want to pick up a copy and read it, then come back here to talk to Lynne. She’ll be on Straight From Hel on June 17th.
FTC Disclaimer: Peggy Elam sent this book without a request for a review, although I’m sure she hoped for one. I, however, felt no obligation to write one, but write one I did. She did include a note to let me know this was an ARC and therefore had a few errors which had been corrected in the final version. ARC errors don’t bother me. I skim right over them when I read for pleasure, and this was a novel I read with pleasure.
