Maddy, dressed in white, stands at the back of the church. At the end of the aisle is Rob - the man she's about to marry. Next to Rob is Ben - best man and the best friend any two people ever had. And that's the problem. Because if it wasn't Rob waiting for her at the altar, there's a strong chance it would be Ben. Loyal and sensitive Ben has always kept his feelings to himself, but if he turned round and told Maddy she was making a mistake, would she listen? And would he be right? Best friends since childhood, Maddy, Ben, and Rob thought their bond was unbreakable. But love changes everything. Maddy has a choice to make but will she choose wisely? Her heart, and the hearts of the two best men she knows, depend on it...
My Review:This book left my head spinning! There was so much emotion flying around all the time, I simply didn't stand a chance at keeping a level head. I was sucked right into it all with the strength of the emotions and the pace of it. Initially, the pace is slower with the three kids being young and becoming friends. Then a parent leaves and the friends fill the gap. One boy has a girlfriend while the other two build a tighter friendship bond. Tensions build among the trio. By the time they get into university, the pace is a killer. Page after page, emotion upon emotion. And Ms. Fletcher never quite lets you go before she's dangling the beginning of another story in front of you. As this is only her second book, I'd say Giovanna Fletcher has quite a career ahead of her if she continues to turn out stories of this quality. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go buy her first book.
