    Revenge of the Wedding Planner is the story of Mags Grimsdale, a 40 something woman who works at Dream Weddings, a small wedding planning business run by her best friend Julia Sultana But Mags isn t your average 40 something mother of four she s a goth with long black hair, has gargoyles in her house and is keeping a secret or two Julia sends Mags life into disarray when she dumps her latest boyfriend, can Mags keep it all together her family, friendship and of course, Dream Weddings The plot sounded pretty interesting to me, and was pretty good to start with Mags was quite a fun character to read, and her first person narrative made very pleasant reading, which stumbled along, describing well Mags life and her thoughts as well However, that s really where the good things about this book ended for me All of the other character in the book perhaps apart from Mags husband Bill were all hideous they were whiny, selfish, rude and generally not very nice people Julia was the worst offender, and you have to wonder why Mags would still stay friends with someone who treats her like that She was very selfish and quite a user towards Mags Her background is explained quite extensively I must add by Mags early on in the book, but this didn t make me any sympathetic to her, quite the opposite actually I think it was supposed to evoke sympathy from the reader, but just didn t from me.We also get to...

    Synopsis Mags and Julie are partners at Dream Weddings, catering for the over the top and sometimes downright bizarre requirements of Belfast s brides and grooms to be They rub along well but are as different as chalk and cheese Mags is married to the love of her life, has four kids and a complicated extended family Julie is impossibly glamorous, and doesn t remotely believe in love or marriage When Julie embarks on a life crisis, running away from her live in lover and throwing herself in to a hair raisingly sexy fling with Jay, it is Mags who is left to pick up the pieces When Julie eventually comes back, she brings Jay with her, and that is where the real trouble starts Add to the mix Dream Weddings most high profile celebrity clients yet, and the biggest, most ambitious wedding they have ever organised, and the fireworks really beginThis is the second Sharon Owen novel I have read and like The Teahouse on Mulberry Street, I enjoyed it and thought it was an OK chick lit book The narrator is Mags a woman who is happily married, a goth and an assistant wedding planner Her associate manager is Julie, who seems to be having a mid life crisis Although this takes her to South Ireland where she forgets about her boyfriend and hooks up with a worker at the spa From there, she starts to lead a double life, leaving Mags to do most of the work in regar...

    Revenge of the Wedding Planner was a rather quick, and in parts also amusing book, although some characters were just plainly unlikeable Julie, Alexander, Emma It was quite refreshing to read about a 40 something lady, who is...

    I just loved this book I thought it was brilliant The first thing that caught me was the main character Mags She was really interesting, being a goth in her early years and still not really shaking it when older. and the fact that her husband was a punk Her house seemed really cool to me, guitars on the walls, a MASSIVE record collection and a room that had a stone gargoyle and gothic candle sticks some at 5 feet tall It made me decide that when i have a house of my own it will always have a biscuit jar fully stocked with chocolate biscuits The fact that the book was based in Belfast in my home country of Ireland made it a bit of a comfort, as i could relate to some of the slang she was using and the ulster fry and cups of tae The story itself was so funny i thought, with Julies crazy parents and her relationships with guys, mags family antics suc...

    This is a really enjoyable wee book As with all of Sharon Owen s books, I get a buzz from reading a book based in Belfast and I enjoyed the we snippets of Northern Irish humourI gave the book four stars, but would actually liked to have given it three and a half As much as I enjoyed it, I didn t really enjoy it just as much as the other books by Sharon Owens that I have read The narrating character, Mags, really frustrated me She was a real wimpy, pathetic sort of door mat I just want...

    This book is a great light read, with a bit of laughingeven during the sad times There were times that I would get distracted by things outside of the cover, but with this book it didnt matter Which is prob what I needed Margs is Julie s PA for her business Dream Weddings , the story is told from Margs POV and is almost like reading someones though...

    I enjoyed Sharon Owens first three books, set in different streets of Belfast, very much they are all written with a lovely light touch and full of quirky, unusual characters.This comic novel about two friends who work as wedding planners is again set in Belfast, but I don t think it works as well it s a strange mixture of farce, jet black humour and satire and the sort of cosy ish humour in the first three books, and to me it doesn t all really gel I ll still rea...

    Something about the narration of this book made me think of Monty Python skits in which they play old English biddies I ran across a review that said the narrator speaks in the kind of Nordie Mockney that s so reminiscent of transvestites in cosy cardies the only word of that I understand...
