Remember last month when I said I needed some light fluff to relax during a particularly stressful time? The Wedding Date was the book I needed. It’s a lovely romantic comedy in book form that was sweet and talked about food a lot.
The central romance is between two hard-working professionals – a black woman who is the Chief of Staff to the Berkeley mayor and a white man who is a new doctor down in LA. They have a meet cute in a stuck elevator, and everything goes from there. The tension comes mainly from their busy careers and the idea that their relationship isn’t ever serious, despite them both wanting it to be.
It wasn’t earth-shattering, but it was a goddamn delight. Recommended.
