Book Review / Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella

 #1 New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella returns with her trademark blend of sparkling wit and playful romance in this page-turning story of a wedding to remember—and a honeymoon to forget.

Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose, but then his big question involves a trip abroad—not a trip down the aisle. Completely crushed, Lottie reconnects with an old flame, and they decide to take drastic action. No dates, no moving in together, they’ll just get married . . . right now. Her sister, Fliss, thinks Lottie is making a terrible mistake, and will do anything to stop her. But Lottie is determined to say “I do,” for better, or for worse.

 What I loved about this story...    As I always expect and hope with a Sophie Kinsella novel, you have a main character who gets into a situation they have trouble getting out of and watching them try and get out of it is just the funniest thing ever.  With this story, for me, you have two main characters.  First you have Lottie who instead of being proposed to by her boyfriend ends up breaking up with him because he won't who then gets in contact with her first boyfriend and they agree to marry within a matter of minutes of getting together again.  What could go wrong there?!  You then have Fliss who is Lottie's sister.  She is in the process of getting divorced and from what I can see is not taking it very well.  She finds out about Lottie's decision to marry and takes it into her own hands to try and stop her by whatever means necessary.   I really enjoyed finding out what happens next...

What I didn't like about this story...  Honestly, it was nothing in paricular but I just found that I didn't laugh out loud like I usually do with most of Sophie Kinsella's novels and just could not get into the story, but that may speak more about my reading mood at the time rather than the actual story.  I also didn't particularly warm to the character of Ben who seemed like a flaky character and Lottie should have seen that had she not have been on the rebound.  The way things unroll at the end with Lottie and Ben seemed to me to happen quickly and with little emotion.  I would have loved to have seen the same amount of drama that was in the start of the book with the end for these two characters.
