Publisher's Summary

Two sisters in love with the same man - one engaged to him and the other about to sabotage the wedding - struggle to reconcile in this delicious novel from the best-selling author of The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Café.

The Harrington sisters have never gotten along. Sara is a type A, career-focused event planner, and her younger sister, Mariel, is the opposite: bohemian, semi-employed, and recently engaged. When Sara's mother lures her back to Connecticut under false pretenses, she is perturbed to discover Mariel waiting for her, eager to reconcile their relationship - and get some help with the final arrangements before her big day. The two sisters haven't spoken since the night Sara realized something was going on between Mariel and Sara's boyfriend, Carter Pryce. And now Mariel is about to marry Carter, the man she stole from Sara, the man Sara still loves.

When Mariel asks Sara to stand in for a bridesmaid who has to cancel at the last minute, Sara realizes it's the perfect cover to unravel the nuptials and win Carter back. Sara begins to slowly sabotage Mariel's picture-perfect wedding, but when she crosses paths with David Cole, he challenges her self-image as the jilted second fiddle to her spotlight-stealing sister. Will Sara realize what a bridesmaid-zilla she's become in time to fix the damage before Mariel's big day? 

Funny, soulful, and as sweet as buttercream, The Wedding Thief is the perfect summer listen.

Critic Reviews

"If you've ever wanted to sabotage a wedding - and who hasn't? - you should definitely read this book. In fact you should read it anyway, because it's funny, smart and highly entertaining." (Dave Barry)

"Wedding planning is almost always fraught with minefields, but this wedding takes the cake. Sara Harrington, the story's protagonist/event planner, could definitely use a few etiquette lessons. But then, so could her sister. Mary Simses' engaging, lively book takes the reader on a wild ride toward a wedding like no other." (Peggy Post, author and spokesperson, the Emily Post Institute)

"If you're attracted to the title The Wedding Thief, you'll absolutely love this book. It delivers a great sister vs sister story that overflows with warmth and especially humor. Mary Simses is one of our best new storytellers." (James Patterson)

Only good for a mindless road trip

This book works okay for a road trip with very little to look at, but boy, is it brainless trash. The characters are unrealistic (either one-dimensional or totally unbelievable). All of the men seem weirdly unconditionally attracted to the ditzy, arrogant, self-flattering and selfish main character, and all the women MUST have something against her. I thought for the first seven chapters that it was being narrated by iPhone’s Siry.

A fun read

A fun quick read that helps pass a rainy day. It followed a story line I haven't read before. A nice change.

Overall Great Book

While this book went slow at places, it was an overall great book. This was the first book I’ve read by this author and it will not be my last. She kept my interest throughout the book and through most of the book I was wanting it to go faster.
I enjoyed her characters and could definitely feel close to them. I found myself yelling at the characters and for the characters. For me that is my benchmark of a truly exceptional book.
