Not a big diversion, just okay. ( )

I thought this one was OK, but there were a lot of things that bothered me. Plot points with potential that were introduced were dropped. I didn't find any of the characters believable and the main character was a bit annoying. The moral of the story, even people that seem to have it all have problems, was a hammered into the reader without any subtlety. I was hoping that the main character's confidence would grow throughout the book, but once the mystery portion of the story a lot of that was dropped too. Overall, it was a quick read that passed the time on a summer day, but I could have been more. ( )

Daphne is a plus-size social media influencer, but still suffers from self-doubt and a badly managed "fix up" her sometimes friend Drue foisted on her. Years later, Drue emerges looking for bridesmaids and because of the social media splash, Daphne agrees. But then the bride is found drowned in a hot tub the morning of the wedding and Daphne is a suspect. Daphne and her new friend, who happens to be Drue's half-brother and her roommate solve the case.

Weiner’s Mrs. Everything was one of my top 10 books for 2019 so when this book came up as an audio book on sale, I grabbed it. What a mistake! I guess th3e author has a contract demanding a book a year, because with this volume she’s retreated from writing for grown-ups and gives us a story full of vapid characters, an unbelievable plot, and way too much product placement.

The heroine, Daphne Berg, is a plus sized Instagram influencer putting up a brave face of being comfortable with her body, yet full of self-loathing. She’s had a co-dependent friendship with beautiful and wealthy Drue Cavanaugh since high school. A fight during their college years separated the two young women who haven’t spoken in years. Yet when Drue reappears and asks Daphne to be the maid of honor in her wedding she gratefully accepts. Seriously? Then throw in a murder, a hunky guy who falls for Daphne and a dysfunctional family and you have the makings of a mess. Tis is ten hours of my life I’ll never get back. ( )

My book log tells me that I've read four other novels by Jennifer Weiner. This time I was looking for a book that was light, chick-lit, happy, maybe a "beach" read. The first half of this novel was just that, then BAM! Right in the middle, there is a twist and it suddenly becomes a mystery. I purposely had not read any reviews and I am glad I didn't.

The location is Cape Cod, in June, with preparations being made for a summer society wedding between the daughter of a wealthy business owner and a TV celebrity. The protagonist is the maid-of-honor, Daphne, whose weight has always been a problem for her. She has no self-esteem and her weight alone could have been a "character" since it was mentioned constantly throughout the novel. There are several side stories which were just okay but all tied into the premise.

During the second half, the mystery part, I found it unrealistic to have such a bumbling police detective that Daphne and two friends had to take over the investigation.

This is not easy to review because of spoilers. You will read about the many sides of friendships, family feuds, and forgiveness. There are many lessons to be learned about the pitfalls of on-line living. Very little, if any, bad language which was refreshing. But there is a sex scene, in a hot tub no less, that certainly was not necessary. Sex can be implicated but these details were over-the-top. ( )

Nobody heard him, the dead man,
But still he lay moaning:
I was much further out than you thought 
And not waving but drowning.

Poor chap, he always loved larking
And now he's dead
It must have been too cold for him his heart gave way,
They said.

Oh, no no no, it was too cold always
(Still the dead one lay moaning)
I was much too far out all my life
And not waving bit drowning.

---"Not Waving but Drowning" by Stevie Smith
