Wedding Night - Sophie Kinsella (2013)

Lottie just lost the best thing in her life after her boyfriend's "big question" turns out to be about a trip rather than a proposal as she was expecting. The fact that they've been together for years and he hasn't even talked about marriage makes Lottie decide their future is bleak so she decides to break up with him and then ends up doing something her sister, Fliss, would call an "unfortunate choice" to quell her pain. Ben, handsome, rugged and extremely rich, was Lottie's fling years ago while in Greece, so when he shows up out of the blue and proposes, how can a girl say no? Luckily for Lottie, there are people in her life who don't want her to make the biggest mistake ever, including Fliss who is entwined in a never-ending divorce battle. But will they save Lottie in time or is she destined to regret the worst "unfortunate choice" she's ever made for the rest of her life? Written from both Lottie and Fliss' point of view, this novel is a bit different than Kinsella novels of past. It's good, don't get me wrong, but not as good as her prior stand-alone novels. Either way, it's still a fun and humorous story that will leave you thinking the next time you want to do something crazy after a break-up. (AS)

Sophie Kinsella is back in 2013, with a new novel, and it's not a Shopaholic one as rumoured. The summary of Wedding Night says: "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?" Wedding Night is out in May.
