A Catered Affair
Author: Sue Margolis
Publisher: NAL Trade
Publication Date: August 2nd 2011
When Tallulah gets jilted at the altar, she gets very drunk and starts making passes at the male wedding guests. She even propositions the caterer. But in the next few weeks, reality comes crashing down around her. Her difficult mother becomes more impossible than ever. Her lesbian sister starts trying to have a baby. Nana Ida gets busy matchmaking. What Tallulah is about to discover is that happiness doesn't always come in the form of the perfect doctor- and that sometimes real love doesn't require a catered affair.
A Catered Affair is more character driven then plot driven, and that's great when you like the characters, which I did. We get to know Tallulah in the beginning while she is planning her wedding to her fiance. When she gets jilted she takes the time to evaluate her life, and herself. Tallulah changes as the book progress for the better.
I just fell into the life of Tallulah, her renewed independence and new relationships. A Catered Affair put a smile on my face.
