Blog Tour - The Mating Rituals of the North American WASP by


Welcome to the Blog tour for Mating Rituals of the North American WASP,
by Lauren Lipton
Miriam from Hachette is our organizer and provided review copies. Thank you!


About the book:
After arguing with her live-in boyfriend about his inability to commit, Peggy Adams flies to a friend's bachelorette party in Las Vegas, and wakes up next to a man she can't remember. Hung-over and miserable, she sneaks out of the sleeping man's hotel room and returns home to New York, where her boyfriend apologizes for the fight and gives her a Tiffany box containing a pre-engagement ring. Not what she expected, but close enough! The next day she receives a phone call from the Las Vegas one-night stand, Luke, claiming she's already married to him¬-and he faxes her the license for proof! Both are ready for an annulment, until Peggy arrives in quaint New Nineveh, CT, where Luke cares for his Great Aunt, and the old woman makes Peggy an offer she can't refuse.

My Review:

I had fun with this book! Great fun and light summer reading. I think the whole premise of waking up in Vegas married to a stranger sets the stage for a lot of fun. Talk about your Bachelorette party suprise of a lifetime! I had fun with the stereo-types of the WASP's through out the book. The characters are likable and the story weaves back and forth from New York to Connecticut leaving Peggy in a sense with a man in every town and then some. Aunt Abigal is a little bonus spark in the book and I found the parts with her in it cute and zesty! This is just a great book to grab and throw into your backpack, or beach bag and have fun with.

Check out some of the blog tour participants. (This is just a random grabful... there are a these and a bunch more so check them out today for reviews and giveaways!)
