Lily Wilder is a lawyer, a workaholic, and the last person on Earth that should be getting married. Her moral compass is spotty at best and her fiancé, Will, is way out of her league. One week before the wedding she’s having second thoughts and her parents aren’t convinced wedded bliss is for her. To make matters worse, she is being blackmailed by her soon-to- be mother-in-law, and the biggest case in her short career is looming over her head. This hysterical tale of pre-wedding blunders, missteps, and love is sure to have you in stitches. Eliza Kennedy’s I Take You puts a new spin on cold-feet that you won’t be able to put down!
Meet Lily Wilder: New Yorker, lawyer extraordinaire, blushing bride. And totally incapable of being faithful to one man. Lily's fiance Will is a brilliant, handsome archaeologist. Lily is sassy, impulsive, fond of a good drink (or five) and has no business getting married. Lily likes Will, but does she love him? Will loves Lily, but does he know her? As the wedding approaches, Lily's nights--and mornings, and afternoons--of booze, laughter and questionable decisions become a growing reminder that the happiest day of her life might turn out to be her worst mistake yet. Unapologetically sexy with the ribald humor of Bridesmaids, this joyously provocative debut introduces a self-assured protagonist you won't soon forget.
