LoveReading View on Double Wedding

I can never understand how anyone could possibly wish to share such a special day as a wedding, even with your supposedly best friend.  Patricia Scanlon seems to feel the same for anything that can go wrong in the scenario in this bittersweet book, does, some of it very unexpected, making this warm, eventful read a little bit different.  She has that magic Irish charm, well worth trying.
Comparisons: Maeve Binchy, Danielle Steel, Cathy Kelly.

Double Wedding Synopsis

Jessica and Carol, two childhood friends, are both engaged to be married. Secretly afraid her fiancé is going to chicken out, Carol is insisting on a double wedding.   Jessica is appalled at the idea: she doesn't want to share the happiest day of her life with whining Carol and her womanising boyfriend. Unfortunately for her, she has a very soft heart and is easily persuaded to agree. Then her mother goes ballistic. This is not what she wants for her precious daughter!
 

Carol’s parents are separated and at loggerheads. Neither wants the other to be there. Who will win that war? Nadine, Carol's younger sister, is wild and disruptive and drinks like a fish – hardly the ideal wedding guest.

Will Carol's family come to blows? Will her fiancé do a runner? Will they make it to the altar? And can Jessica and Carol's friendship survive a Double Wedding?
