I first read this book maybe… 16 (?) years ago and loved it, couldn’t get enough of the characters and their quirks. Happy to say that all these years later and nothing had changed.

What a fun read! Genuinely one of the most laugh out loud hilarious books I have ever read. The characters were wild, the plot so unbelievable and fun that it almost becomes believable. I was determined to add a copy of this to my library and I’m so glad I did.

Something about Cranky Agnes and Shane, about Carpenter and LL, all the characters thrown in throughout. It really did feel like one big dysfunctional family planning a disaster of a wedding with wild flamingos and hitmen. 10/10 I absolutely adore this book.
