In Jenny Meszaros' debut novel, Bliss Chase, Eleanor's determined to get married and she's not going to let the simple fact that she has yet to find a groom stand in her way. The summary says: "A wedding is a joining together of two souls: a bride and her bridal gown - at least according to wedding dress, and highly opinionated narrator Radiance, who tells the story of jilted bride, and hopeless romantic, Eleanor Wishaw. She has a wedding date, a dream venue and even a fairytale dress. The only thing she does not have ... is a groom. Follow Eleanor as she begins to hunt down a husband in time for her wedding day, stumbling across the many perils of her plan, often against the advice of her incredulous friends. But take heart, she is not alone, as Radiance completes this determined duo in a race against the calendar. As Eleanor battles the dating field, Radiance hangs ever more tightly in the hope that Eleanor can snag a man in time. Their quest takes them first out on to the town and then on to the lazy shores of the Caribbean, ahead of their destination wedding. Together can they at last chase down wedding bliss? And if they do, will Eleanor ever really learn that the true meaning of love does not always come in the form of a wedding?" (CF)
