Y’all get a three-for-one review post today! I recently picked up Jenny Holiday’s Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series and devoured the books.
What a fun series! I needed something to take me away from the recent stresses of my life and these three books did just that. The series follows a group of friends who are bridesmaids in each other’s weddings. Each friend has a distinct personality which I love. Some writers tend to write the same characters repeatedly, just plopping them in different scenarios and calling it a new book. But that’s not the case with Jenny Holiday. Each heroine was individual and had different struggles they had to overcome.
While all of the books were wonderful, I think my favorite of the series was Three Little Words. I loved that the obstacles were realistic and how much fun Gia and Bennett had together. How they supported and cared for each other as people so early on when it wasn’t romantic yet. They were just honestly good and compassionate characters and I really loved that.
If you’re looking for a fun read that will let you escape, I definitely recommend checking out this series.
I received a free copy of One and Only and Three Little Words from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
MEET THE AUTHOR: Jenny Holiday
Jenny Holiday started writing in fourth grade, when her awesome hippie teacher, between sessions of Pete Seeger singing and anti-nuclear power plant letter writing, gave the kids notebooks and told them to write stories. Most of Jenny’s featured poltergeist, alien invasions, or serial killers who managed to murder everyone except her and her mom. She showed early promise as a romance writer, though, because nearly every story had a happy ending: fictional Jenny woke up to find that the story had been a dream, and that her best friend, father, and sister had not, in fact, been axe-murdered.
From then on, she was always writing, often in her diary, where she liked to decorate her declarations of existential angst with nail polish teardrops. Eventually she channelled her penchant for scribbling into a more useful format. After picking up a PhD in urban geography, she became a professional writer, spending many years promoting research at a major university, which allowed her to become an armchair astronomer/historian/particle physicist, depending on the day. Eventually, she decided to try her hand again at happy endings—minus the bloodbaths. You can follow her on twitter at @jennyholi or visit her on the web at jennyholiday.com.
