Eat, Drink, and Be Married

Eat, Drink, and Be Married
A novel by Rebecca Bloom

When college friends Kate, Nina and Zoë take holiday from their busy schedules on opposite coasts to join their former roommate, Hannah, for her wedding in Lake Tahoe, they not only bring suitcases packed with what-not-to-wear bridesmaid dresses, but baggage of a more emotional kind.

Supported by a variety of eclectic characters determined to wreck havoc on their carefully organized lives, each woman is forced to come to terms with her past before she walks down the aisle. Zoë must learn how to reveal a vulnerability beneath her bravado before she can finally open her heart. Kate needs to reclaim her identity before she can regain her strut. Nina must heal her own inner child so she can provide for another. Hannah needs to release a ghost in order to recover her spirit.

A bottle of booze, a host of laughs, a hankie or two worth of tears, and seventy-two hours among those who know and love them the most is the perfect recipe for four women to Eat, Drink, and Be Married.

Have I Got a Guy For You

Twenty-six fresh and talented female writers wittingly revisit nightmarish blind dates they’d sooner forget – although their mothers won’t let them - in the uproarious new anthology edited by Alix Strauss, HAVE I GOT A GUY FOR YOU: What Really Happens When Mom Fixes You Up (Adams Media; $19.95 Hardcover; April 2008). Hailing from diverse backgrounds, each woman shares a common connection – determined mothers who will stop at nothing to get them down the aisle and over the threshold, even if they have to find the grooms themselves.

HAVE I GOT A GUY FOR YOU introduces readers to an army of possible suitors from the too short to the too tall, to the too vain and the too hopeless with each one seeming all too familiar. Then there’s the “successful musical actor” who shows up for a date at Starbucks with only a dollar, but is dressed to the nines in all black leather and the seemingly perfect lawyer turned non-profit executive, who complains of a sore throat and ends up spouting a never-ending monologue about past girlfriends over cocktails – and tea (no honey to be had in a Manhattan martini lounge). Typically reserved for comedic effect in our favorite sitcoms or chick flicks, these dates come to life with the help of a handful of meddling mothers.
