SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING VEGAN, SOMETHING BLUE 
 
For the second time in just a few short months, Clementine Cooper’s professional reputation hinges on one restaurant review. Clementine’s No Crap Café is poised to score the Holy Grail of publicity—a mention in the New York Times Sunday travel section—if Clem’s veggietastic lasagna can bowl over the food critic.Clem has no time for distractions. Or surprises. But when her meat-eating millionaire boyfriend Zach Jeffries shocks her with a sweet and romantic marriage proposal, of course she says yes!
 
 
Now she has to plan the most important menu of her life while fending off her domineering future mother-in-law’s extravagant plans for the wedding.As if there wasn’t enough on her plate, Clem decides to open a second restaurant on her parents’ farm—Clem’s No Crap Outpost— against Zach’s advice. Just when she needs his support the most, Zach grows distant. The only person who really seems to understand is Clem’s friend and biggest competition, the cute vegan chef Alexander Orr. Putting out fires in the kitchen is easy—but in her relationship?
 
 
Suddenly, her time with Alexander feels . . . hotter . . . than usual, and Clem starts to wonder if the charming carnivore she’s engaged to is really the man she should spend her life with.
 
 

My Review 

 
A special thank you Gallery Books and NetGalley for an ARC  in exchange for an honest review.
 
As a huge fan of Skinny Bitch (loved Skinny Bitch: A No-Nonsense, Tough-Love Guide for Savvy Girls Who Want to Stop Eating Crap and Start Looking Fabulous and also, Skinny Bitch in Love, was so excited about Kim’s latest Skinny Bitch Gets Hitched with more dishes, menus, plus more. 

Skinny Bitch Gets Hitched did not disappoint and exceeded my expectations - another winner! As usual, Kim knows Chick Lit and her humor, wit, and sass is totally awesome! As a faithful vegan foodie, myself (for years), cannot image eating all the crap some people eat – I do not want to even be around it. The vegan dishes were a huge draw for me, combined with drama surrounding restaurants, foods, weddings, and quirky family and friends.

From Kim’s last book, the saga continues with Clem after the reality show cook off, as she wins the capital for her new vegan restaurant – Clementine’s No Crap Café with her side kick Sara (who also gets engages to her boyfriend Joe). 

Kim tackles the familiar, something old, something new, blue and vegan, as Clem’s No Crap Café is highly successful and riding on a restaurant review which can make or break her success.

When her meat-eating millionaire boyfriend Zach (cannot even image dating a non-vegan) surprises her with a marriage proposal she says yes, and begins making all sorts of wedding plans and encounters all the interference from not so welcome family members.

Then, Zach's eccentric old aunt gives Clementine the family earrings and a List of Important Things to Do before Getting Married. Of course, Clem and Sara are challenged to try them all. 

During the middle of all the drama, Clem wants to open a second restaurant on her parent’s farm and of course Zach is not in favor of this move. As another vegan chef Alexander moves in to offer Clem support in the kitchen and out, as she begins questioning her relationship and future.

I loved the sexy LA setting, and strong fiery Clementine, always passionate full of love with food and her endless ideas. Of course, the eccentric aunt, wedding planner, and the evil mother in law, and friends were a riot. Full of drama and fun with wedding plans, as emotions run high. 

Would recommend to anyone who loves Kim’s classy no-nonsense writing style. (I have purchased her books for many of my nieces and girlfriends). With her well rounded collection of books, she knows chick topics (from vegan cooking, dating, guys, career, goals, marriage, motherhood, being healthy, beauty, and styling)…and holds nothing back. I look forward to reading some of the vegan cookbooks I missed along the way!
