In Queen of Babble Gets Hitched ($22.95, William Morrow), Lizzie Nichols has finally fulfilled her goals.

But as she prepares for her dream wedding at her fiancé's family estate in France, Lizzie finds herself questioning if her Prince Charming is really the man of her dreams.

Nine college friends reunite for what looks like an idyllic wedding at a seaside Maine estate in The Romantics ($23.95, St. Martin's Press). But buried tensions come to the surface when the groom goes missing the night before the wedding day. Maine was a natural setting for author (and mystery junkie) Galt Niederhoffer, who feels the shoreline of Connecticut would be an ideal location for her own wedding. "We would begin the weekend with a clambake in an old barn and ask everyone to bring a song, a poem or something to share with the group about love."

If you liked 27 Dresses, you'll love The Best Day of Someone Else's Life ($13.95, Avon). At twenty-seven, perpetual bridesmaid Vi Connelly's life becomes a whirl wind of bouquets, brides and bachelorette parties when she participates in eleven weddings in eighteen months. Author Kerry Reichs imbues her debut novel with a hilarious wit and realism born of long experience. "I served in two weddings before I was seven—cue tacky, poufy 1970s flower girl garb," she says. "I've attended over fifty weddings in the last decade, serving as a maid of honor five times, a bridesmaid five times and a reader twice." —Kathryn Papanek
