Not her best, but still an entertaining read.

When former Mean Girl Drue comes back into Daphne Berg's life bearing apologies and begging Daphne to be the Maid of Honor at her upcoming wedding, Daphne yields, partly as a gesture of foregiveness and partly because explosure at this major social event will enhance her on-line career as a social influencer.

Halfway through, Weiner switches genres, and the book becomes a murder mystery heavily dependent on inconsistent characterization and a crushing number of coincidences.
