A people-pleasing bridesmaid-for-hire falls for the crushable new lesbian in town. Will she finally find her happily ever after-and her own voice? ONE OF BUZZFEED' SMOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF 2022Amy, a semicloseted queer baker and bartender in mid-2010s Oklahoma, has spent a lifetime putting other people' s needs before her own. Until, that is, she hits it off with Charley, a brilliant, attractive engineer who' s just moved to Tulsa. Suddenly, Amy' s found something-someone-she actually wants. Her tight-knit group of chosen family is thrilled she' s finally moving on from her ex. Mostly, though, they want Amy to find a way to show up for love-and life-as her authentic self. But when a one-off gig subbing in for a bridesmaid turns into a full-time business-thanks to Amy' s baking talents, crafting skills, and years watching rom-coms and Say Yes to the Dress-her deep desire to please kicks into overdrive, at her own expense. It' s not until Amy' s precarious balancing act strains her relationships to the breaking point that she must decide what it looks like to be true to herself-and if she has the courage to try.
