Every wedding has its small disasters — bad catering, cash bars, lecherous uncles on the dance floor. But Tess and Gabe’s backyard nuptials have a bona fide whopper: an uninvited guest who really won’t forever hold her peace. The gas-masked ”terrorist of love” who bursts into their ceremony arrives in her own wedding dress with a military-grade arsenal and a serious vendetta. But against whom? Hostage situations are an odd vehicle for social satire, and Zeidner’s tone sometimes falters. It’s her insight into — and keen sympathy for — human foibles that supplies Love Bomb’s biggest impact. B+
