Eileen Rendahl

The latest chick-lit romp by Davis author Eileen Rendahl begins where most romance novels end, at the heroine’s wedding. It’s a nice Jewish affair at the Winters Opera House, but before her fiancé can break the glass, Chloe Sachs is in her pickup putting as much distance as possible between her and her “special day.” Rendahl asks practical questions of her runaway bride: Who returns the gifts? What should you do when your ex takes someone else on your non-refundable honeymoon? And how hard is it to get a mocha in a wedding dress when you left your jeans in the reception hall? The novel, Rendahl’s fourth, is her best to date—displaying a talent for creating warmly connected characters and a new determination to tackle emotionally difficult terrain without sacrificing her breezy style.
