Wedding Night - Sophie Kinsella

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.


This was another fun romantic comedy, this time told from the perspectives of two very different sisters.


Fliss, the older sibling, has kind of acted as a mother figure to Lottie for years. She's going through a messy divorce which turns into another comic point despite being so draining and depressing for her. So when she sees her sister heading towards quick marriage and possible divorce, she tries her best to stop it.


To my surprise, this book wasn't at all predictable. At no point was I certain how Lottie's love life was going to work out. I enjoyed her revisiting scenes that were prominent to her when she was younger.


My favourite characters were the predictable ones--Fliss and Lorcan, Ben's best man, had a very tense hate/lust relationship that amused me.


The extents that Fliss goes to in order to keep Lottie's marriage from being consummated shaking my head with pure amusement.


Fliss's seven-year-old son Noah also provides some comedy. My favourite moment was when he collected the key cards of a bunch of hotel guests as he wanted credit cards for his new wallet, leaving Fliss to figure out who twenty identical cards belong to. Him talking about putting the "sausage in the cupcake" was also entertaining.

This was my second Kinsella book, and it did not disappoint. Though there was less depth to this one, I enjoyed it immensely and I'm excited for more.
