Mating Rituals of the
North American Wasp
by Lauren Lipton
You know with a title like that
you're in for a fun ride.
This is definitely perfect for light summer reading by the pool or at the beach, and with that cute cover...(have I ever mentioned my covetess nature when it comes to cover art?) you can probably even find a swimsuit or beach bag that matches!
In the style of "What Happens in Vegas", Peggy Adams makes a bachlorette party trip to Sin City, and wakes up in a strange room next to a strange man. She hightails it out of there only to be contacted by him after arriving back home in NYC to discover she married him.
Luke Sedgwick is the last of the New Ninevah, Ct Sedgwick's, a family known in New England as WASP royalty. His suggestion to Peggy that they get an immediate annulment is met with wholehearted aggreement, until Luke's slightly cracked Aunt Abigail finds out about the marriage.
Aunt Abby's been bent on finding someone to produce an heir to the Sedgwick line for years and makes Luke and Peggy an offer they can't refuse. She offers them the option of selling the family estate, which is worth millions, is they stay married for one year. Mayhem ensues in the form of Peggy trying to fit in and entertaining New Englands WASPy families on the weekends, while keeping the marriage a secret and running her business in NYC during the week.
It's a fun book, with a lot of laughs and a sweet romantic love story and the wit and characters keep it from being typical.
I will probably pass this one on to the book group at Goodreads.com.
