“Funny, smart, and an excellent writer, Rachel Eddey gives Jen Lancaster a run for her money as she races with sarcastic wit and whine all the way up to the altar. … She holds her own, though, with her own style, a little bit sweet and a little bit sassy. She paints one vivid satirical vignette after another … Completely hilarious.”
