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.
