Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Sometimes tying the knot gets complicated. Whip-smart, heartfelt and joyful, Alison Rose Greenberg's Bad Luck Bridesmaid is a celebration of complicated women and a power-anthem to live your truth. It's official: Zoey Marks is the cursed bridesmaid that no engagement can survive. Ten years, three empire waist dresses, and ZERO brides have walked down the aisle. After strike three, Zoey is left wondering if her own ambivalence towards marriage has rubbed off on those she loves. And when her building distrust of matrimony culminates in turning down a proposal from her perfect All-American boyfriend, Rylan Harper III, she and Rylan are both left heartbroken, leaving Zoey to wonder: what is it exactly about tying the knot that makes her want to run in the opposite direction? Enter Hannah Green: Zoey's best friend, who announces that she's marrying a guy she just met (cue eye roll). At a castle. In gorgeous, romantic Ireland, where Rylan will be in attendance, and Zoey will be a bridesmaid. It'll be fine. Okay, the woman definition of fine (NOT FINE). Determined to turn her luck around, Zoey accepts her role and vows to get Hannah down the aisle-all the while praying her best friend's wedded bliss will allow her to embrace marriage and get Rylan back. But as the weekend goes on, Zoey is plagued with more questions than answers. Can you be a free spirit, yet still want a certain future? Can you have love and be loved on your terms? And how DO you wrangle a bossy falcon into doing your bidding?"-- Provided by publisher.

    Is Zoey Marks cursed, or is the curse on the friends who ask her to be their bridesmaid? After two friends' weddings go down in flames, Zoey isn't looking for romance, but it finds her when her lifelong best friend, Hannah, introduces her to her cousin Rylan. As the relationship deepens and strengthens, Zoey starts thinking she will marry Rylan, until their bad break-up after she endures a third wedding disaster as a bridesmaid. When Hannah announces that she's getting married in a mere three weeks at a thirteenth-century castle in Ireland and wants only Zoey as her bridesmaid, Zoey vows to do whatever it takes to keep the curse from ruining this wedding. But Rylan is bringing a plus one, the sole groomsman is dead set on saving his brother from the perils of marriage, and there's falconry and boating to get through. Laugh-out-loud funny in places and heart-rending serious in others, Greenberg's debut is a unique romance strong on friendships and the importance of being true to oneself that also explores an alternate route to a different happily-ever-after.
