When her old boyfriend Ben reappears and reminds her of their pact to get married if they were both still single at thirty, Lottie jumps at the chance. But not everyone is thrilled with Lottie and Ben's rushed marriage, and family and friends are determined to intervene. Will Lottie and Ben have a wedding night to remember ... or one to forget?
The best way to review Sophie Kinsella's newest book, Wedding Night, is to start with an analogy. Sophie Kinsella is to "chick literature" as Jennifer Anniston is to "Romantic Comedy Films". And, this latest book is the equivalent of a romantic comedy film where you can imagine the main character as Jennifer Aniston starring alongside Reese Witherspoon and Bradley Cooper. If you are looking to curl up with a light-hearted, fast-paced, and funny book then this is a book I recommend.
This new book features two sisters, Lottie and Fliss. Lottie has a history of making "unfortunate choices" following bad breakups and after she breaks up with her longtime boyfriend she reconnects with an old flame, Ben. Within days Lottie and Ben have decided to get married right away and honeymoon in Greece. Fliss doesn't want to see Lottie make this mistake and decides to travel to Greece to stop Lottie and Ben from consumating their marriage. As with any Sophie Kinsella book, the characters are flawed, but endearing. They are silly and inept but you will laugh along with this book. So curl up with some popcorn and indulge yourself in this romantic comedy chick-lit book!
