Max is turning forty. All he wants for his birthday is for his six oldest friends to come to France to eat, dance, drink and laugh for one weekend. And to finally declare his secret, undying love for his best friend, Helen. Juliette gave up her dream of owning an acclaimed Parisian restaurant to return to her tiny coastal village and nurse her aging parents. But she finds her home much changed, even the boulangerie where she first learned to love baking has fallen upon hard times. Now, as she tries to find her way to a new future, Max's birthday weekend may just provide the new beginning Juliette is wishing for...but at whose cost? A French Wedding is a novel filled with love, lies, fights, friendship and feasts, which reads like a love triangle between The Big Chill, Chocolat and Les Petits Mouchoirs ( Little White Lies ) that will become your favourite ensemble cast love story.

The book's surprise ending made it worth my while to endure a tedious plot.

Who leaves a thriving restaurant to be with her ailing mother but says barely a word about the mother's passing or the father's subsequent care-giver-fatigue fatal illness?

What happened during the life-altering trip to rehab?

Who takes a trip to a lavish beach cottage but visits the beach only once?

Instead the author plodded through a series of booze and drug soaked nights and weekends without revealing much about why the characters needed so desperately to imbibe mind-altering substances. The ending gave me whiplash, and I wish the author had invested more in the characters' evolution and transformation.
