The Substitute: The Wedding Pact #1
This is the first book in The Wedding Pact Series by the USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank. Denise has done a wonderful job with the character depiction of Megan who is unable to face her mother, her mother Nicole (a.k.a Knickers) who is a combination of a stepford wife and Hitler and lastly Megan's two friends Blair and Libby who are both poles apart in nature. Megan's grandmother brings wonderful laughs to the story with her eccentric and fun loving behavior. Denise deserves recognition for her well written situations and good story.
