Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin

From the back of the book:

Meet Rachel White, a young attorney living and working in Manhattan. Rachel has always been the consummate good girl - until her thirtieth birthday, when her best friend Darcy throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in be with Darcy's fiance. Although she wakes up determined to put the one-night fling behind her, Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for the one guy she should run from.

I really liked this book. Emily Giffin brings to the reader a wonderful group of characters the reader can definitely relate to. In fact, the book is all about the characters and is never bogged down with extraneous descriptions of the scenery or location. It's simply a story about relationships and how intertwined they can become. Whether you view them as honest or dysfunctional or just plain wrong, this book will make you cry, laugh and yell out loud. Be sure there are no interruptions when you begin reading this novel. You'll not want to put it down until you find out how it turns out.
