Confetti Confidential: They Do, I Don't by Susan Murphy

6:30 pm 2 Comments A+ a-



How can you be a part of a couple's big day when your own love life is crumbling? Her once happy life in tatters thanks to a cheating husband, lacklustre career and a wrinkling face, Viv no longer believes in love and happiness. In fact, she hates them both. The problem is that as a marriage celebrant, gleeful love is what she has to deal with every day. With 10 hilarious and tragic weddings (and a funeral) to get through before she can give up being a celebrant, can she prove that love and happiness are the pathetic hopes of the naive, or will fate intervene and show her that what she secretly craves could be right in front of her? 


Hey! Here's my review.

Ten weddings and a funeral. 

Viv is a marriage celebrant and after her own marriage falls apart, becomes disillusioned with the idea of marriage. She honors the weddings she has already committed to and we get to meet a variety of interesting characters. 

Is it too late for Viv to work things out with her husband or is there a new love on her horizon? 

I liked Viv and her sisters. The romance plot was balanced out with other deeper issues so wasn't too light and fluffy. A debut novel by an Australian author. It was not full of Australian references, which may help it feel more universally relatable.

Here is Susan Murphy's blog. She is still coming to grips with the idea that she is a published author....and all the work that comes with that!
