A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Her Brother's Shotgun Wedding is the story of Evelyn Dunleavy, her close knit circle of family and city-dwelling friends, and the chaos that ensues when her oldest sibling, Michael, announces that he is getting married. In London, where he now lives, to the girlfriend no one really knows. And by the way...she's pregnant.

The rest of the story follows Evie over to London for a few months as the official family delegate charged with getting to know her soon to be sister-in-law. It certainly doesn't hurt that because of his cramped living quarters her brother has lined up a room for her in the apartment of one of his groomsmen, Nate, that Evie feels an instant attraction to...despite his love of the music group ABBA, or the fact that he chooses curries over pizza. It doesn't help that Michael still considers his sister to be off-limits from the advances of his friends.

She comes to the quick conclusion that wedding planning can be stressful no matter which side of the Pond you hail from, and it's always more fun to have your best friends around you for a bachelorette party, especially when the bride-to-be is seven months pregnant.


Noreen Riley graduated from the University of Scranton with a B.A. in English and a Business minor. After working for several years in New York City for some large investment banks, she left to raise her first son. One son quickly became three. She had always loved writing and decided to stop imagining finishing a novel and to actually do it. Trying to do so while raising three young boys proved to be a challenge she met by writing much of her book in the middle of the night. The dark shadows under her eyes were so prominent during that time frame that two people actually commented on them! She now resides in New Jersey with her husband and three boys.
