Take an instantly recognizable social dilemma--attending a wedding alone--add a good laugh (and maybe a cry), and meet The Singles , the warm and witty debut by Boston Globe "Love Letters" columnist Meredith Goldstein.

Beth "Bee" Evans's first vow as a bride is that everyone on her list be invited to bring a guest to her lavish, Chesapeake Bay nuptials. When Hannah, Vicki, Rob, Joe, and Nancy one by one decline Bee's generous offer, the frustrated bride dubs them the "Singles," adrift on her seating chart as well as in life.

Told from multiple perspectives, but all of the narrators showed up for the wedding alone, despite the bride's instructions. A quick, fun read.

Easy reading. Five people's perspective of attending a wedding. Some get drunk. Some have a one night stand. Some get a chance at romance. If you are like me, you find weddings to be really long and boring anyhow.
