    Originally posted at: http://www.longandshortreviews.blogsp...Always the wedding planner but never a bride. That doesn't sound quite right. Being a wedding planner should be a truly rewarding career. Who wouldn't love spending each day helping create the "Big Day" for couples everywhere? At least that's what Cassie wants to believe. Until recently, Cassie has never seen it as anything but something she was really good at and enjoyed doing. And if she's able to make a living while she was at it, than it's two birds with one stone. Adding a relationship to her already hectic life could bring her to her breaking point. The only thing more exciting would be if a blast from her past sent her straight over the edge! When an old flame, Kevin, comes out of the woodwork, he tempts Cassie to reconnect and question why they ended things all those years ago. Kevin wants her to believe that he has grown up/changed but the mixed signals he keeps sending is slowly driving Cassie crazy. Cassie gives new meaning to "analyze 'til you're paralyzed". Could he be for real this time, or is he just using her as a filling while waiting for the next best thing to come along?Then there's Nick. He's a new guy in town, and newly single. Nick has a past too, and has no problem keeping secrets from Cassie all while trying to get to know her better. Don't judge Nick too harshly just yet. Cassie could teach him a thing or two about telling lies. With a group of four friends, lots of emails and texts over her love life, Cassie may just find that she is better as a solo instead of adding a plus one to her date book. This was a cute story that showed how every girl needs a great group of friends to help her go from girlhood to finally becoming an adult. And when that doesn’t always work, late nights with a bottle of wine can make any situation easier to understand. Okay maybe not, but it made for some pretty funny scenes. I really enjoyed this work. The characters were realistic and the story line itself was unique and kept me interested up until the last page. The only thing that I wish was that Wendy Chen would have finished out the last scene between Cassie and her friends and not left such a cliff hanger. Not once did I find the story lagging or forced. If some light chick-lit is what you're in the mood for, Wendy Chen's debut novel should fit the bill nicely.

    Review also posted on my blog: The Book BarbiesA cute cover, a cute summary and a cuter story. Wendy Chen delivered awesomeness! For myself, I'm not a fan of weddings. I don't think I will ever have wedding even if I get married because I don't like being the center of attention and like a certain character in this book believes, I do not support the ridiculous amount of money that goes into a day that most people won't even appreciate. I will never force anyone against weddings though and with that being said, I loved the portrayal of the wedding business in this book! Wendy Chen made me actually like weddings! All the cake, fabric and flowers talk was terrific.I was recently in New York City for the first time ever and let me tell you, it won't be my last! I absolutely loved it and it's truly a city that's a world on it's own. So I appreciated the NYC setting here and from my short stay at The City, I would day Chen did a fantastic job portraying it! Along with these factors, a realistic, fun cast and a entertaining story this book was the perfect fun-weekend read! More then once the characters had me laughing out loud and I would have to say, this is one of the more realistic adult contemporaries I have read. Even though I didn't support some of Cass's actions at some parts, I actually liked them! They were realistic, and I'm all for realistic! Also it wasn't just Cass's but all the characters in this book were true their generation.This is was definitely a pleasant surprise of a book, it left a big grin on my face at the end and I can see myself rereading in the future. I will definitely be picking up Wendy Chen's next book because Lair's Guide To True Love had it all! An enjoyable main character and lovely group of friends, an annoying family that we can't help but love and a story of realistic romance, friendship, embracing one's identity and a hero that's so real and loveable, I wanted to grab him straight out the page! (or screen since I did read this as an e-book)Rating: 4 hearts~ if you're looking for a book to keep you engrossed and entertained, this one is for you!-thank you&come again.

    Cassandra is a successful woman having her own business. There is nothing to be ashamed off. So why so many lies? She reminded me a little bit of Julia Roberts in the movie Runaway Bride. Everyone of her three husbands-to-be liked different eggs. Julia’s character didn’t know what kind of eggs she liked, so she lied, telling the gay what he wants to hear.Having two boyfriends at the same time, not so good. Why do you wanna go back to a gay who cheated on you? I understand that Kevin is known territory, but he might cheat Cass again. And why starting a new relationship based on lies? How can I expect from him to trust me ever again? This is me, this is who I am, take it or leave it. After all, Nick is a great gay. He was burned in the past, and now it’s harder for him to trust women.I figured out one thing: Cassandra is afraid of changes. She would rather go back to something not so good, but familiar, like Kevin, than try something new, like Nick.There were moments when I laughed aloud, but there were also moments when I thought : “Oh my God, what is she doing???” She acts very mature when it comes to her work, when she has to calm down the bride in panic, when she has to change the wedding plan in very last minute. But when it comes to her personal life, she acts like a child.There were many other things about Cass that I really liked. I agree with her opinion about being a parent; who is ready for children, who is not. I agree with her about many other things. Relationships with her sister and her mother are really strong. She is also excellent friend. And her friends are great. Cassie's profession is also adorable.Any girl or woman can connect with the weddings she plans. Overall, this is enjoyable book.

    I received a copy of Liar’s Guide to True Love in exchange for an honest review. Summary:Wedding planner Cassandra Hanley is in the business of making other people's dreams come true. But for some reason, whenever she meets a potential mate of her own, she finds herself telling little (and not so little) white lies. She's not trying to sabotage her relationships on purpose: as a people pleaser, she just naturally tells men what she thinks they want to hear. When Cassandra meets Nick, she's determined to be herself this time—until she learns he abhors weddings. So she recasts herself as an advertising exec, and now she's scrambling to cover up the lie...with more lies. Into the tangled web wanders Cassandra's college sweetheart, Kevin. Kevin, the one man who knows the real Cassandra, and loves her anyway. Could he have been The One all along? Torn between the past and the present, Cassandra is about to learn that you can't plan the perfect life the way you can plan the perfect wedding. My Review:What a fabulous book! I used to intern with a wedding planner years ago, and I find a lot fun reading books about weddings and wedding planners and what they go through. Cassandra absolutely cracked me up with all her little white lies. I didn’t think she was a pathological liar by any means, she just really wanted to fit it and please the men she went out with. The love triangle between Nick the wedding hater and Cassandra’s ex-boyfriend Kevin was very intriguing. This is a very humorous book with a lot of depth, and I think chick lit fans would enjoy this one!** 4.5 stars**

    Originally posted at http://its-raining-books.blogspot.com...I didn’t think I would enjoy this book as much as I did. As you follow the heroine through the story plot, you also follow her three friends, her family and ex-boyfriend. You get to know them all so well that, as you read, it is as though you are watching a movie. The author's descriptive writing showed me everything so clearly. It is a delightful story and fun to read. I gulped it down in one long sitting (it's not a short book -- but I couldn't put it down).The main theme is, of course, relationships. Not only hers, but the others in the story. Her problem is that she lies constantly to make herself what she thinks the hero wants her to be. I giggled and laughed as I read about her misadventures as she tried to get herself out of the dilemma she caused.The story is not as predictable as you might think, and so I had to keep reading to find out if she ended up with who I knew was Mr. Right. I also wanted her friends to end up with their own Mr. Right. You will have to read it to find out how it ended.I thoroughly enjoyed this story and hope the author releases something again soon. She made me a fan with this delightful tale. I'd highly recommend it to all readers, especially to women who didn’t marry early in life, of those looking again in their 30’s. Lots of fun.

    **Thank You Netgalley for the opportunity to review this book**Liar's Guide to True Love was everything I'd hoped it would be and more! I was looking for a fluffy, chick-lit/romantic read and I got that! Wendy Chen's debut novel starts out a bit slow, taking two or three chapters to really get going. But once it does, you are in for a fun ride!As much as I loved the romantic aspect of this, Cass's choice between history and the hot new guy, I also loved how well we get to know her family and friends. Her relationship with her mother is very realistic, as is the plotline that involves her younger sister and brother in law. One part I loved the most about this book though? The wedding planning aspect! Perhaps because I began my internet love affair with a wedding planning message board, but no matter what the reason? It was fun to watch several weddings and their planning! Was this book a bit predictable? Yes. Was I frustrated with Cass and the fact that she lied about her job? Yes. But, in the end? It was a great ride and ending definitely left this open for a sequel! I look forward to reading more from Wendy Chen in the future! And if you are looking for a good, quick, fluffy read? Grab The Liar's Guide to true Love!

    What I come to learn from this book is that we all should always be true to ourselves instead of going around lying to everyone and try to be what we’re not as at the end of the day, whatever lies you told will be out of the bag. It’s hard to be true to yourself and be yourself in this superficial world as there are many judgmental hypocrites out there who more often than not, judge you for your appearance and financial status.Being a people pleaser is hard. You can’t please everyoneand you might as well do something that will make yourself happy. And that’s something each and every one of us should take note of and keep reminding ourselves every day.This book is insightful, and a wondeful read. Pure delight if you enjoy good humour and a good love story.I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received an ARC of this book from Carina Press via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review for this book.

    Not only was I in suspense over who she would choose, I enjoyed walking down memory lane with all of the NYC institutions that are a part of this book. I can't wait for the next book by this author.

    My Blog: www.hsiauwei.comPublish Date: 07/12/2011My ReviewThe story is about Cassandra, who due to her work and remark from Nick decided to tell a lie; that she is an ads executive rather than a wedding planner. And at the same time, Kevin, her ex contacted her. Being a normal girl, she goes with the flow of seeing both of them. And as anticipated, the lies caught up. Nick found out her profession and walk out of their relationship. And now, it is up to Cass to mend their relationship.The book contained many story of bridezilla and groomzillas which i have fun reading and the author have relayed the message brilliantly. I can even relate some of the story to my real experience in handling my own wedding ;) Off all the characters in the book, i dislikes Kevin's character. He was in and out of scene but i couldnt tell what he want from Cass .. even till the ending, i still couldnt find his true intention in being back to Cass' life.

    I loved the title, the idea of this story, and Cass. I loved that it felt like she was sharing a dirty little secret with me by telling me about her life. The problem, even with all the things that I loved, was that I had to stuggle to get through it. Whatever I am reading has to catch my attention and hold it right off the bat, or most times I want even waste the time to finish it. I have so many books that I want to read that if within the first few pages or first few chapters I am not totally involved I give up. That is how I felt trying to read this book, I had to make myself get through and I hate that feeling like I am struggling to comprehend.It's not for me, but someone else may thing otherwise.

    I liked this book. I was immediately drawn in because I used to work in the wedding industry as a floral designer and wedding planner. I enjoyed reliving the parts of my ex-career that I loved. :) The storyline was good and I was wondering how it would end. The main character seemed to change and learn form her mistakes.But the book almost felt half novel, half wedding planning guide. Seemed as if some of it could have been toned back. And it seemed as if there was a lot of product and brand name mentions, plus many mentions of restaurants and stores etc in NYC, and as someone who doesn't live there, I didn't really get those references. And I'm not sure, but did we ever find out what the ex wanted with her???

    This book started off a little slow to me. Took me a while to get interested in it. But when I did it was good. It threw me off the ending... Didn't expect that!
