Review

Named as “One of the 25 Best Books of Summer 2021” by Frolic

“An appealing debut with depth and heart that fans of Jennifer Weiner will enjoy.” Library Journal

“Whether you’ve been a bridesmaid a dozen times or somehow avoided the whole mess, For the Love of Friends is not to be missed. Funny and touching, Sara Goodman Confino has created a story that’s as wild as a good bachelorette party and as romantic as a first dance. I gobbled it up like wedding cake!” ―Kelly Harms, Washington Post bestselling author of The Overdue Life of Amy Byler

“When Lily Weiss agrees to be a bridesmaid in five weddings over six weeks, she finds herself and her bank account stretched to the breaking point in this hilarious novel filled with bridal meltdowns, handsome and obnoxious groomsmen, meddling mamas, wayyyyy too much Spanx, and one supposed-to-be-anonymous blog that allows Lily to vent. Sara Goodman Confino hits every note just right, with pitch-perfect dialogue and a healthy, fun dose of snark, along with plenty of love and warmth. A laugh-out-loud read.” ―Maddie Dawson, Washington Post bestselling author of Matchmaking for Beginners

For the Love of Friends is a delightful escape from reality―27 Dresses meets Mean Girls. The perfect mix of hilarious, outrageous, and thoughtful, with a deeply relatable heroine. An unputdownable must-read!” ―Suzy Krause, bestselling author of Sorry I Missed You

“Amid a flurry of ‘I dos,’ bridesmaid Lily Weiss navigates five weddings in six weeks―her saving grace the Bridesmania blog she writes exposing the high stakes and high costs of wedding culture for those in the throes and woes of love. With Lily’s love life woven throughout, our bighearted heroine’s misguided attempts at bridesmaid wizardry will engage readers invited to attend this rollicking―and at times emotionally bruising―march down multiple aisles. Say yes to this story about self-reflection, forgiveness, and, ultimately, courageous leaps of faith, written with wit and razor-sharp truth. A real gem of a bridesmaid tale!” ―Julie Valerie, bestselling author of Holly Banks Full of Angst and The Peculiar Fate of Holly Banks --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Publisher

Do you love the movies Bridesmaids, 27 Dresses, or Mean Girls? If you answered yes to any (or all, like me), then Sara Goodman Confino has a treat in store for you with this charming, snarky, laugh-out-loud read.

Lily Weiss finds herself in a tough predicament when she agrees to be a bridesmaid in five weddings over one summer, especially considering two are for her younger siblings. Unsure of how to pay for the expenses, and needing an outlet for the frustrations that come along with any wedding (let alone five), Lily starts an anonymous blog to let it all out. Sure, she may embellish a little as the likes start rolling in, but all of the stories are based in truth, and anyway, nobody knows who is writing the blog. Or, at least, Lily hopes nobody ever figures it out. Add to that a quirky (but mostly well-intentioned) family, a boring job, and a not-so-boring-but-totally-off-limits new love interest, and Lily’s about to find herself in for one wild summer.

So if you are looking for a delightful and hilarious tale about friendship, new love, and self-discovery, all rolled up with way too much tulle, then I strongly encourage you to say “I do” to For the Love of Friends.
