“Something Borrowed”, by Emily Griffin

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

Read it, or save your time?  An oldie but a goodie.  Terrible expression but it’s true and I couldn’t come up with anything more original.

What’s it about?  Darcy and Rachel are polar opposites but have been best friends since grade school.  Darcy is an enigmatic party girl who loves attention. Rachel, now a successful attorney at an NYC firm, is quiet, thoughtful, and believes in following the rules.  Rachel has always been happy to sit back and let Darcy shine in the spotlight, but when on her thirtieth birthday she drunkenly admits to Dacry’s fiancee that she has feelings for him, feelings he reciprocates, the fragile balance of their friendship is tested.

Will Rachel for once throw all caution to the wind and put herself first?  Is friendship, albeit a lopsided one, more important than romance at all costs, or should true love prevail?

Reviewer’s Note:  The movie, starring Kate Hudson (one of my favs), Ginnifer Goodwin, John Krasinski, and Colin Egglesfield, is the type of movie you can watch over and over again with your friends, so def watch it after you read the book.
