WEDDING NIGHT by Sophie Kinsella

WEDDING NIGHT

KIRKUS REVIEW

Convinced that Richard is finally going to propose to her—after all, he has been dropping fairly obvious hints about a “big question”—Lottie has dolled herself up and begun fantasizing in Technicolor. But then, he doesn’t. What’s a girl to do?

As soon as Lottie claims she’s going back to school for her master’s degree, her sister, Fliss, knows exactly what Lottie will do, because she’s heard that line far too often. Lottie is going to do something rash, and Fliss will have to pick up the pieces. But Fliss doesn’t really have time to mend Lottie’s broken heart or spackle over the sure-to-be-unfortunate results of her reckless behavior, since she is currently trying to keep her job while engaged in an annoying divorce. Her estranged husband has metamorphosed into a self-righteous jerk who keeps trying to change the divorce agreement and drops their son Noah with her the very night of the hotel-industry awards ceremony, which she has not only arranged, but also will host. If only she could have had Noah without ever having married Daniel. So it’s understandable that Fliss cannot prevent Lottie from impulsively marrying Ben, her old flame, and jetting off to the Greek island of their youthful adventures. With the help of Lorcan, Ben’s business partner, who’s rather aghast at Ben’s precipitous departure, Fliss begins to orchestrate obstacles to Ben’s consummating the marriage. Author of the popular Shopaholic series, Kinsella (I’ve Got Your Number, 2012, etc.) 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.
