Cynical or smart?
I can't decide. The latest Sweet Potato Queen book is called The Sweet Potato Queens' Wedding Planner/Divorce Guide. Sounded pretty horrible to me until I read the entire AP article, which offered two insightful quotes by author Jill Conner Browne: "If you read both ends of it and you pay attention, you can avoid whichever end of it you want to avoid. If just reading about a wedding scares you, you should run for the hills;" and "Weddings take on lives of their own. They really have nothing to do with marriage. Five minutes after the wedding you are no longer the bride. You are just a wife married to that husband and it is one of the ruder awakenings that the universe has to offer."
