Tom is a successful man in the field of financial banking. He is charming and works very hard to succeed. The only thing he needs to complete his life is to find the perfect woman for him. When he proposes to Jen, his girlfriend of two years, he believes his life has turned for the best. However, his omission of not telling Jen everything about his past comes to bite him in the behind when his ex-wife shows up at their wedding reception. Tom thinks it should be no big deal that he did not tell Jen everything, but when Jen hits him between the eyes with a divorce, he realizes he made a huge mistake. Will Tom convince Jen that he was wrong and sincerely wants to stay married to the only woman he has ever loved? Or will things get so out of hand, that he can not take a chance with Jen again?
FIT TO BE TIED is an interesting contemporary tale about Jen and Tom’s wedding and the after-effects of what can happen when someone’s feelings get hurt. Ms. Kendall pens a dramatic saga that had me in peals of laughter in the beginning from all the horrible things that went wrong on the wedding day. Tom is a sexy man who gets put through the ringer by his new bride. I felt sorry for him, but then cheered him on when things started getting messy in the divorce. Jen was whiny, fickle and psychotic at best. I really liked her in the beginning and felt for her when she was lied to on purpose, but she did not grow as a likeable character because of her desire to break up the relationship instead of trying to fix it. The vivid imagery was very well-written and it felt like I was sitting there watching everything going on.
