Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Bestselling author Kinsella (Confessions of a Shopaholic) offers a departure from standard chick-lit — and shopping — with her latest. Charlotte 'Lottie' Graveney is positive her boyfriend Richard is about to pop the question over lunch — but when he confesses the topic he wanted to speak about was air miles, she's out of there. When her gap-year boyfriend Ben suddenly returns to her life and immediately proposes, Lottie jumps at the chance. Felicity 'Fliss' Graveney, Lottie's sister, is significantly less excited. Fliss, who is going through her own divorce, knows her sister's impulsiveness well — so when Ben and Lottie head to a five-star resort in Greece for their honeymoon, Fliss uses her connections as editor of a travel magazine to try to prevent the pair from consummating their marriage so that Lottie might be convinced into an annulment. Alternatively told from the points of view of Lottie and Fliss, the story meanders (especially when a minor character interjects without much reason to) before delivering a surprise ending, but Kinsella fans will be charmed.

Synopsis:

The new novel from #1 bestselling author Sophie Kinsella!

Lottie is tired of long-term boyfriends who don’t want to commit to marriage. 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. There will be no dates and no engagement — just a straight wedding march to the altar! Next comes the honeymoon on the Greek island where they first met. 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?

Praise for Wedding Night

 

“[A] fun novel that’s as light and bubbly as a glass of wedding champagne.”—USA Today

“Author of the popular Shopaholic series, [Sophie] Kinsella has again created a fast-paced, hilarious comedy filled with bubbly banter and a charming cast of characters. The lovers (more self-deluded than star-crossed) are delightfully flawed, and the rivals are sweetly vulnerable. Bright, bouncy, engaging and perfect for filming.”—Kirkus Reviews

 

“There’s plenty of silly fun to be had in this charming comedy of errors.”—Booklist

 

“Kinsella fans will be charmed.”—Publishers Weekly

Sophie Kinsella's "Wedding Night," is a laugh a minute riot. The plot appears seriou,s opening with a proposal that didn't materialize, leading to what appears to be heartbreak. However what ensues is just hilarious. Lottie who is mistaken that Richard is going to propose to her, makes some dramatic decisions and this leads to her sister, Fliss and a friend Lorcan to take some disastrous steps. Kinsella uses double entendre to such advantage that I was laughing till my sides split throughout. 12 hours after I finished the book, I'm still grinning ear to ear when I think about it!
