When her younger brother marries on her twenty-ninth birthday, food addict Sara Friedman drunkenly vows to three hundred wedding guests to find and marry her soul mate within the year.
After her humiliating toast becomes a YouTube sensation, she permits a national morning show to chronicle her search. With the help of best friend, Missy, she plunges head first into the shallow end of the dating pool.
Her journey leads her to question the true meaning of soul mates, as she decides between fulfilling her vow to marry before her thirtieth birthday and following her heart’s desire. But before she can make the biggest decision of her life, Sara must begin to take her first steps toward recovery from her addiction to food.
I started and finished this book in a matter of days. I was intrigued by the concept of finding love and getting married all within a year. I loved how we, the readers, went along the journey of self discovery with Sara and how we were able to learn to love her while she learned to love herself.
The secret kisser at the very beginning of the story kept me interested. I had to know who loved her so much that they would keep their identity secret. About half way through, I thought I had it all figured out. I was so happy to see Sara find true love and know what a real relationship is.
Both humorous and serious, this book has a bit for everyone. I learned about the Jewish faith, learned about overeating, and learned about love. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a good read, with more substance than just a romance!
