Synopsis from Goodreads:

The Eighties are dead! And maybe a bridesmaid too. At the dawn of the Nineties, six recent college grads reunite for a hometown wedding. On the eve of the ceremony, the bride's stepsister sleeps with the groom and then overdoses on pills. Tying the knot without a hitch? Not likely, for this crew.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

This story was definitely well written and edited. Erickson’s straightforward writing style put everything in front of you in plain language. I found that this story jumps around a lot, especially while getting started. Even further into the story the same thing occurred. There was just nothing that fully drew me into the story itself. Anytime I started to get interested the story would jump around again and I’d be popped back out of my immersion.

I appreciated how you got to know the characters of this tale on many levels. You got to know them in the past and present, alone and as a group. It was intriguing to see the interrelationships between them. I may not have agreed with what the characters did or said, but the way that they were developed allowed you to see where they were coming from at every point in time.
