...And so does a lot of drama in our May romance round-up

The Best Day of Someone Else's Life Kerry Reichs . Avon , $13.95 paper (464p) ISBN 978-0-06-143857-8

Reichs is the daughter of bestselling thriller writer Kathy Reichs, and her cute romantic comedy debut makes BDOYL syndrome—imagining your wedding day as the “Best Day of Your Life”—scarily palpable. A 20-something Washington, D.C., wine buyer, “Vi” Connelly (née Kevin—her parents expected a boy) embarks on an excruciating, crushingly expensive odyssey: she attends more weddings than you can count on two hands in less than two years, all the while searching for the love of her life, and mooning over her lost first love Caleb Carter. Fans of Meg Cabot's 27 Dresses will find that Reichs rewards those patient enough to sit through all the toasts, and Vi's Web store purchases allow for some comic e-mail–based retail moments. (May)
