SEATING ARRANGEMENTSMost weddings I’ve attended have utterly bored me, so I don’t normally have much interest in wedding-related novels, either. But Maggie Shipstead’s Seating Arrangements is a fun, summery romp that also maintains an edge of plausibility as it carves through a family ensconced in WASP society. The characters are well-drawn, the dialogue is often brisk and humorous, and it captures more than one point of view effectively.

In short: a good beach read.
