Review: The Best Girl by Emma Harrison
You Are Cordially Invited . . .
to your brother's wedding where he will marry rich, famous Marni Shay, at the River Lodge, the most elite resort in Colorado, the state you chose to go to college in so you could escape your family, except they'll all be there. Enjoy ten fun-filled days of avoiding your mother, who still thinks you're not girly enough; planning your brother's bachelor party, because you are his best man, er, girl; and, oh yeah, trying not to drool all over Hot Connor, who happens to be in your English seminar and work at the River Lodge. Put your best foot forward, and . . .
Don't miss the most joyous celebration of the year!
I enjoyed reading about all the wedding prep and the strong bond between the main character and her brother. Despite all this, I was very frustrated with the main character. She feels as though she has to change herself to be likeable, and the whole relationship between her and Connor is based on lies. The story is still interesting, though, and I didn’t hate it.
The Best Girl by Emma Harrison is one to pick up if you are looking for a quick winter themed read. It has an interesting concept and the story is lots of fun.
