Girlfriends' Cyber Circuit: Melissa Senate

QUESTIONS TO ASK BEFORE MARRYING already sounds pretty good to me and the fact that it is written by bestselling author Melissa Senate doesn't hurt either. In fact, it sounds as though it ought to be handed out at wedding expos, though nobody at those events wants to deter anyone, I'm sure. You're not already married, are you? might be one. As soon as I read Melissa's book, I will know if that is on the list. Great title, though, and hats off--veils off--to Melissa. Here's a little more scoop:

A very popular New York Times article lists fifteen questions couples should ask (or wish they had) before marrying. Ruby Miller and her fiancé, Tom Truby, have questions 1 to 14 almost covered. It's question 15 that has the Maine schoolteacher stumped: Is their relationship strong enough to withstand challenges?

Challenges like…Ruby's twin sister, Stella. The professional muse, flirt and face reader thinks Ruby is playing it safe. And that the future Mrs. Ruby Truby will die of boredom before her first anniversary or her thirtieth birthday, whichever comes first.

Challenges like…sexy maverick teacher Nick McDermott, Ruby's secret longtime crush, who confesses his feelings for her at her own engagement party.

But before Ruby can plan the wedding that may never be, Stella announces she's pregnant by a one-night stand whose name might be Jake (or James? Maybe Jason?) and who lives somewhere under the glittering lights of Las Vegas. Ruby and Stella hit the road to find him—with a lot more than fifteen questions.

And after three thousand miles, a stowaway relative and hitchhiking teen lovebirds bound for an Elvis wedding chapel, the Miller sisters might get some answers.

“Senate’s prose is fresh and lively.” –The Boston Globe
