June 2014 Book of the Month.

Three school friends from the age of nine, two boys, Ben and Robert, one girl, Maddy, are each other’s ‘best friends’ through thick and thin and so they grow up.  The book opens with Maddy walking down the aisle to marry Robert but admitting  that if the best man, Ben, were to raise his head and say ‘marry me instead’ she probably would.  The rest of the book takes us through those years from 9 to 26 from all three points of view, but mostly from Maddy and Ben trying to come to terms with their love.  Robert’s input appears to be a diary-like entry.   All the way through you wonder if Maddy will say ‘I do’ to Robert.

Sarah Broadhurst

You're the One That I Want Synopsis

Maddy, dressed in white, stands at the back of the church. At the end of the aisle is Rob - the man she's about to marry. Next to Rob is Ben - best man and the best friend any two people ever had. And that's the problem. Because if it wasn't Rob waiting for her at the altar, there's a strong chance it would be Ben. Loyal and sensitive Ben has always kept his feelings to himself, but if he turned round and told Maddy she was making a mistake, would she listen[unk] And would he be right? Best friends since childhood, Maddy, Ben and Rob thought their bond was unbreakable. But love changes everything. Maddy has a choice to make but will she choose wisely? Her heart, and the hearts of the two best men she knows, depend on it...
