Seven months pregnant and head over heels in love, Vivi Ann McFadden is busy pulling together the final details for her wedding to Lewis Heart, famous play-by-play announcer for the Crimson Tide. But with two wedding-planners-gone-wild, a psychic giving her advice, and the ceremony happening on the same day as the wildly popular Crimson Tide kickoff game, chaos reigns supreme. Luckily, maid of honor Blake O'Hara Heart is on the job. She'll tackle this wedding if it's the last thing she does!
But not everyone is cheering for the happy couple. News of the upcoming nuptials has brought Lewis' old flame back to Tuscaloosa - and she's got a secret that could mean the end of Lewis' marriage... before it even begins.
Sexy Southern fun... with a hint of magnolia!

This book had good reviews; what am I missing?
Where's the story? Lots of the reviewers described themselves as Southern girls and were tickled with this book. I don't know why they're not insulted by it.
Blake, the main character is a lawyer. Quite an accomplishment, but mention of her career takes a backseat to baby showers, clothes and the wonders of Aquanet. A murder mystery sort of hovers around the edge of the story, but that's gettin in the way of planning a wedding so it gets wrapped up in ScoobyDoo style and we get on with the Fru Fru wedding (the wedding is planned by "A Fru Fru Affair" event planners.)
Here's the worst part. Blake is in a failed marriage with a senatorial candidate. Though they have already decided on divorce, they are keeping it a secret until after the election, and presenting themselves as a happy professional couple. Although Blake says Harry is a lousy husband, he'll be a good Senator. Geeeeez. He's dishonest and a womanizer, is that what this author considers good Senator material? Meanwhile, Blake is having an affair with the lead investigator of the city police department. There is some discussion about not getting caught, but nothing about any ethical dilemma.
I didn't look to see when this book was written. If it weren't for references to cellphones and other technology, I would have assumed it was 1950 something.
My recommendation..save your money. If you like books about Southern women's lives, try some Deborah Smith. You get the idiosyncrasies and charm of Southern life, but her women have made it to the twenty first century.

The sassy belle books are fantastic. They are laugh out loud funny and the characters, perfect. Being a southern girl I can so relate to the characters. I love the way those woman take care of each other and the sense of family commitment, no matter what. Great read!!!!
