Overview

Despite being cursed with a boy's name, Kevin "Vi" Connelly is seriously female and a committed romantic. The affliction hit at the tender age of six when she was handed a basket of flower petals and ensnared by the "marry-tale." The thrill, the attention, the big white dress--it's the Best Day of Your Life, and it's seriously addictive. But at twenty-seven, with a closetful of pricey bridesmaid dresses she'll never wear again, a trunkful of embarrassing memories, and an empty bank account from paying for it all, the illusion of matrimony as the Answer to Everything begins to fray. As her friends' choices don't provide answers, and her family confuses her more, Vi faces off against her eminently untrustworthy boyfriend and the veracity of the BDOYL.

Eleven weddings in eighteen months would send any sane woman either over the edge or scurrying for the altar. But as reality separates from illusion, Vi learns that letting go of someone else's story to write your own may be harder than buying the myth, but just might help her make the right choices for herself.

Reichs is the daughter of bestselling thriller writer Kathy Reichs, and her cute romantic comedy debut makes BDOYL syndrome—imagining your wedding day as the “Best Day of Your Life”—scarily palpable. A 20-something Washington, D.C., wine buyer, “Vi” Connelly (née Kevin—her parents expected a boy) embarks on an excruciating, crushingly expensive odyssey: she attends more weddings than you can count on two hands in less than two years, all the while searching for the love of her life, and mooning over her lost first love Caleb Carter. Fans of Meg Cabot's 27 Dresses will find that Reichs rewards those patient enough to sit through all the toasts, and Vi's Web store purchases allow for some comic e-mail–based retail moments.
