My book for this month is Wedding Night, the latest novel by Sophie Kinsella, best known for her Shopaholic novels.
I’ve just finished reading this book and I have to say it wasn’t Kinsella’s best work but it was a fun, light read with all the usual silliness that is common with Kinsella’s characters.
The story is written from the perspective of two sisters, Lottie and Fliss. Lottie is the romantic while Fliss is the more practical, older sister.
Lottie’s long-term boyfriend, refuses to commit to marriage so when her old boyfriend Ben reappears and reminds her of their pact to get married if they were both still single at thirty, she jumps at the chance. Fliss doesn’t approve of this hasty decision and sets out to ‘save’ her sister by sabotaging her honeymoon.
The book is comedic and a great choice for reading at the beach seeing as it’s set in Greece. If you’re a Kinsella fan, don’t expect too much except the usual comedy romance.
