What’s a guy to do when the woman who can’t say NO finally does say it…to his proposal? Become a big man and join the FBI, of course! Fast forward five years and Nora is helping to plan the wedding of her tyrannical boss and equally tyrannical Bridezilla Kennedy, who also slept with her ex-almost fiancé Camden, whose proposal she turned down and who happens to be the best man to her Maid of Honor in said wedding. Phew! You might think Nora agreed to help plan Kennedy's wedding as some twisted form of revenge, which would be awesome, but Sandra Sookoo does a great job of showing just how incapable Nora is of telling people NO. And that alone should tell you exactly why she said no to Camden, even though we find that out pretty early into Operation Wedding Crash.

You might think that a story about a thirty-something woman playing Maid of Honor in the wedding of a woman who slept with her man, while he was still her man, while said cheater is the best man would be maudlin but Operation Wedding Crash is surprisingly funny and fun. When Nora and Camden get together and form a pact to subtly stop the wedding, the fun reaches a whole new level. What Sandra Sookoo does so well with this story is illustrate the evolution of Camden and Nora as people, and later as former lovers. While their flirting comes naturally and most of their interactions are so organic that it isn’t a stretch to see them as a couple, Nora has a sufficient amount of skepticism about Camden’s motives for wanting her back and that makes everything about them that much better! As one would expect, Kennedy has no redeeming qualities but as with any good romance, she gets her comeuppance but good!
