c) Finish her final year of law school and nab a coveted NYC big law job
d) Win over the guy of her dreams

Easy, right? From engagement parties to rehearsal dinners, readers will root for Liv as she balances her schemes, dreams, and double maid-of-honor duties.

Why Zibby Loves It

Wedding Issues has all the elements of a delicious read: smart writing, a central juicy conflict, divided loyalties, and, a love interest. But it was the deeper message that resonated the most for me: how do we learn to assert our needs while trying to make everyone else happy? When is time for ourselves and how do we get there? Elle Evans’s characters are funny, bright, and oh-so-entertaining. I know readers like me will tear through it!!
