Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella: Review
I am a huge fan of Sophie Kinsella and her fun, witty novels. So when she released Wedding Night, it wasn't a question as to if I would read it, but when. I just finished reading it a couple weeks ago and wanted to share my thoughts on the book, plus my favorite parts. And I think you can probably guess that I absolutely loved it, just like every one of her other books! So, without any further waiting, let's get started with this review!
First off, the main characters in all of Kinsella's stories are always so unique, quirky and utterly enjoyable. So when she introduces Lottie and Fliss, sisters and best friends, you can't help but adore them both. Then, in comes our other supporting roles including Lottie's boyfriend/ex-boyfriend Richard, her maybe soon-to-be groom Ben and his business-minded pal, Lorcan. The relationships and plot lines twist, tangle and eventually smooth but not without all the intriguing drama in between.
Lottie, who is determined to get married and have kids and grow old, thinks her long-term boyfriend, Richard is going to propose at a special dinner that they are having. But when he doesn't, she gets upset and storms out of the restaurant and out of the relationship all together. Enter Ben, an old flame from her late teenage years. The romance is rekindled over a reuniting conversation and the next thing you know that same night, they're engaged!
Fliss, Lottie's sister, is adamant on breaking the pair up because things are moving much to fast. She persuades Ben's long-time business partner and friend Lorcan to work together with her in order to save the business, and both of their lives. But Ben and Lottie have eloped and impossible to catch. Will they be able to stop the duo, or will outside forces be too strong to fight? The future is completely unpredictable.
Sophie Kinsella has many other novels just as intriguing as Wedding Night. Here are a few of her latest books, which I also highly recommend.
