My Mini Thoughts

Daphne is a bigger girl who has made her mark as an Instagram Influencer.  She is more confident in her own skin than she has ever been, but it wasn’t always like that.  Growing up Daphne met Drue who was everything she wasn’t.  Beautiful, skinny, and very rich.  There were times while reading that I wanted to throw my hands up in the air because it didn’t matter how badly Drue treated Daphne, Daphne always forgave her until one night it went too far.  Years later Drue is engaged and has no friends to stand by her side.  Shocking! So of course Daphne says yes. Of course the wedding of the year can’t go down without a lot of drama and additional characters that are produced from that drama.

There is so much I want to say about this book.  It’s about so much more than friendship and being thankful for what you have in life.  There is a mystery thrown in and I loved it!  I also really enjoyed Daphne’s journey.  She has grown so much since the first time she met Drue.  I don’t know if I have ever read a more likable character.  I will say this book was longer than it needed to be.  I get the mystery needed to be solved, but it could have happened with less pages.

This one is available now!

Goodreads Synopsis

Six years after the fight that ended their friendship, Daphne Berg is shocked when Drue Cavanaugh walks back into her life, looking as lovely and successful as ever, with a massive favor to ask. Daphne hasn’t spoken one word to Drue in all this time—she doesn’t even hate-follow her ex-best friend on social media—so when Drue asks if she will be her maid-of-honor at the society wedding of the summer, Daphne is rightfully speechless.

Drue was always the one who had everything—except the ability to hold onto friends. Meanwhile, Daphne’s no longer the same self-effacing sidekick she was back in high school. She’s built a life that she loves, including a growing career as a plus-size Instagram influencer. Letting glamorous, seductive Drue back into her life is risky, but it comes with an invitation to spend a weekend in a waterfront Cape Cod mansion. When Drue begs and pleads and dangles the prospect of cute single guys, Daphne finds herself powerless as ever to resist her friend’s siren song.
