Wedding Night

Summary: (Taken from Goodreads)

Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose during lunch at one of London’s fanciest restaurants. But when his big question involves a trip abroad, not a trip down the aisle, she’s completely crushed. So when Ben, an old flame, calls her out of the blue and reminds Lottie of their pact to get married if they were both still single at thirty, she jumps at the chance. No formal dates—just a quick march to the altar and a honeymoon on Ikonos, the sun-drenched Greek island where they first met years ago.
Their family and friends are horrified. Fliss, Lottie’s older sister, knows that Lottie can be impulsive—but surely this is her worst decision yet. And Ben’s colleague Lorcan fears that this hasty marriage will ruin his friend’s career. To keep Lottie and Ben from making a terrible mistake, Fliss concocts an elaborate scheme to sabotage their wedding night. As she and Lorcan jet off to Ikonos in pursuit, Lottie and Ben are in for a honeymoon to remember, for better . . . or worse.

My Review:

I had originally picked this book up because it was Ms. Kinsella's newest book. I have never disliked a book by her, and this time was no different. It was a typical Sophie Kinsella book, full of romance, likable characters, a fluffy storyline and fun content.

The book started off with Lottie and her dinner date with Richard. Immediately  I was drawn into the storyline with the fact that she had bought him a ring. She was funny, and I felt bad for her when the proposal she was expecting was a huge flop. 

Shortly after Lottie's breakup occurs, we are introduced to her sister Fliss, who is just as hilarious as her sister. Her sister is having her own problems with her divorce and raising her son. Even though she is preoccupied with her jerk of an ex-husband, she still has her sister's back through the break-up.

When Lottie receives a note from an old flame of hers, she decides to meet up with him eventually. Ben wants to reconnect, and marriage is brought up. Although Lorcan and Fliss do whatever they can, Ben and Lottie are married.

Fliss' next plan is to stop them from consummating their marriage so an annulment is possible. This starts the train of hilariously horrible events that stop the newly married couple from enjoying their wedding night.

Overall, the book was pretty funny. I do have to say that it became a bit far fetched that some of the things would happen. The ending was a tad predictable, but good.

Rating: 4 stars.
This book has some mentioning of sexual activity. It's not very graphic doesn't really describe much at all.
