Someone Else's Wedding by Tamar Cohen

Someone Else's WeddingSomeone Else's Wedding by Tamar Cohen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WOW what a journey.

What a web we can weave when we first set out to deceive. The thing is, Fran was deceiving herself as well as those around her.

Fran struggled with her past, the things she thought she had dealt with, the things that remained hidden, but blasted to the fore thought of her mind..........when she didn't want it to be there.

Fran was a person you could very much relate to. It could have been you, it could have been me.

Many times we think we have 'dealt' with something when wham! it comes backs to haunt you, and as much as Fran was trying to struggle on in the 'now' the past kept creeping up on her.

The layout of this book was very unique. In each chapter it took an hour of the wedding, what Fran's thoughts were, what was happening around her, life in general, it was awesome to read such a book at this, I didn't get much done the day I read it, I was hooked from start to finish.

Now....this is not Fran's wedding, this is a wedding she is attending! It's such a fantastic read I can't urge you enough to read this for yourself.

As for the ending, I thought it was straight forward, OH NO IT WASN'T, WOW, love it

Mr & Mrs Max Irving request the company of:

Mrs Fran Friedman, mourning her empty nest, her lost baby, the galloping years, and a disastrous haircut.

Mr Saul Friedman, runner of marathons, avoider of conflicts and increasingly distant husband

The two Misses Friedman, Pip and Katy, one pining over the man she can't have, the other trying to shake off the man she no longer wants

At the marriage of their son James Irving, forbidden object of inappropriate and troubling desire

For thirty-six hours of secrets and lies, painted-on-smiles and potential ruin. And drinks, plenty of drinks.

There's nothing like a wedding for stirring up the past. As Fran negotiates her way from Saturday morning to Sunday evening she is forced to confront things she's long thought buried, sending shockwaves through her family, and to make decisions about the future that will have far-reaching consequences for them all.
