Queerly Beloved, by Susie Dumond

Staff Pick

This is an LGBTQ rom-com that will have you saying “I do!” in no time. Just fired and head-over-heels with the sexy new engineer in town, Amy lands an unlikely job as a bridesmaid-for-hire. When everything goes wrong on someone’s big day, she makes it all go right. But, sadly, Amy can’t quite make things go right for herself, especially as a queer woman in Tulsa, OK, prohibited from walking down the aisle herself. Dumond combines sharp characterization with extreme comic verve and a smart take on love and marriage. It’s as warm, tasty, and intoxicating as one of Amy’s fresh-baked strawberry champagne cupcakes. (Recipe included on the back of the book!)
