A novel about a jilted bride who's about to discover that not marrying the wrong man can sometimes lead you to the right one.

When Tallulah gets jilted at the altar, she gets very drunk and starts making passes at the male wedding guests. She even propositions the caterer. But in the next few weeks, reality comes crashing down around her. Her difficult mother becomes more impossible than ever. Her lesbian sister starts trying to have a baby. Nana Ida gets busy matchmaking. What Tallulah is about to discover is that happiness doesn't always come in the form of the perfect doctor- and that sometimes real love doesn't require a catered affair.

A little bit different than your standard Brit lit in that the characters that fall in love actually spend quite a bit of time developing their relationship throughout the book. The book doesn't immediately start with the fiancé's abandonment at the alter, there's a bit of build up which adds something nice to the story. Overall, though, you do end up just thinking "just pick the right guy already."
