I Take You by Eliza Kennedy
Brilliantly executed and endlessly funny, this page-turning debut showcases one of the most winning, irrepressible voices since Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones.
I’m getting married.
It’s a disaster.
Meet Lily Wilder—New Yorker, lawyer and bride-to-be. She has a dream job, great friends, a family full of charismatic and loving women, and a total catch of a fiancé.
Also? She has no business getting married.
Lily’s fiancé Will is a brilliant, handsome archaeologist. Lily is sassy, impulsive, fond of a good drink (or five) and completely incapable of being faithful to just one man. Lily likes Will, but does she love him? Will loves Lily, but does he really know her? As the wedding approaches, Lily’s nights—and mornings, and afternoons—of booze, laughter and questionable decisions become a growing reminder that the happiest day of her life might turn out to be her worst mistake yet.
Bridget Jones’s Diary meets Where’d You Go, Bernadette in this joyous and ribald debut, introducing a self-assured protagonist whose choices raise fresh questions about gender politics, monogamy and the true meaning of fidelity.
