Wedding Night, Sophie Kinsella

Wedding-Night-coverI love Sophie Kinsella despite the fact that she can be a hit or miss. Her hits are just that good (for me). Wedding Night, her 2013 release, is unfortunately a miss.

Older sis Fliss always looks after Lottie, and when Lottie breaks up with her long-time boyfriend, Richard, she is ready for one of Lottieā€™s Unfortunate Choices; rash decisions Lottie always makes after a break-up (like a bad tattoo, or joining a cult). But even Fliss is surprised when Lottie elopes with an old beau, and she is determined to prevent them from consummating the marriage, which would disallow the possibility of an annulment. Fliss teams up with best man, Lorcan, and together with Richard, who is now determined to win Lottie back, and her son, Noah, they plan to break up the marriage, traveling to the Honeymoon destination Ikonos, and teaming up with hotel staff to create the worst honeymoon ever.

So the book is a little insane, and there is not much else to redeem it. The comedy fell flat and the romance was far from compelling. Rarely do I have so little good to say about a book, but it’s looking like this will be a pretty short review. I’m always baffled by the roller coaster of Kinsella’s works. Her 2012 release, I’ve Got Your Number is one of my favourites of Kinsella’s, and of the entire chick lit genre. Wedding Night was far too easy to put down, and a burden to finish.
