When your bestie is marrying a guy she barely knows, can you save her from the cult before it's too late?

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

Natalie is living proof that love is a scam. 

 

She's traumatised by her parents' failed marriage and overwhelmed by her grandmother's expectations of good Lebanese girls — marriage, motherhood and exceptional tabouli-making skills. 

 

When her best friend decides to get hitched to a guy in the motherland, Nat's not exactly thrilled by the mammoth task before her: juggling cultural traditions, extra bridesmaid dresses and super-judgemental relatives. 

 

And to top it off there's the annoyingly good-looking best man and his constant need to mansplain all of the things. 

 

Natalie is in for the trip of her life. But can she save her friend from the cult of romance, without falling in love herself?
