Goodreads blurb:

Sassy book blogger-turned-author, Kim Long, thought her life couldn’t get any pinker when she received a two-book publishing deal and a marriage proposal in the same night. The wedding plans are coming together seamlessly, from the catering to the flowers to her much-coveted appointment at the exclusive and world famous Kleinfeld Bridal. Her debut novel is flying off the shelves to celebrated reviews, and her second book is practically writing itself.
If only the above wasn’t a big fat lie.
If only Kim could drown out the conflicting opinions of her overzealous bridal party, most notably, her sister and future sister-in-law, who haven’t stopped bickering since day one. 
If only everyone would adore her first book—or she’d take Nicholas’s advice and stop reading reviews—she might not second guess every new word she writes. 
If only Nicholas’s past would remain there rather than threaten their future. 
The pressure is on, the clock is ticking, and in walks Hannah Marshak. 
Will the former “mean girl” lend a helping hand or make things worse? Will Kim ever write “The End” on her sophomore novel? And, will she and Nicholas make it down the aisle to say those two precious words: I do? 
We’ll never tell. So, put on your reading glasses, fill your champagne flute/cup of tea and prepare to laugh with (and sometimes at) Kim as she rewrites her happy ending until it’s worthy of five pink champagne flutes.

As the third book in the Blogger Girl series, Bridal Girl had a lot to live up to, but Meredith knocked this one out of the park.  I loved the first two books, but I absolutely adored this one.  I am so attached to these characters, and getting to spend more time with them while reading this book was like catching up with an old friend you haven't seen in a while.  

As the title implies, Kim and Nicholas are planning their wedding, and with that comes all of the stress and anxiety that (I hear) is typical for planning the perfect wedding.  On top of that, she's struggling to finish her next novel.  

One of my favorite parts of this series is that the main character's life isn't perfect.  She has flaws, as do the supporting characters, and they all have their own problems.  It's refreshing to read a book where the main character isn't presented as perfect with a picture-perfect life.  

Another of my favorite things about this series is the humor.  Bridal Girl is laugh-out-loud funny!  

With excellent pacing, wonderful character development, and captivating writing, Bridal Girl is a smart, hilarious, and ultimately sweet addition to the Blogger Girl series.
