#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.

Sophie Kinsella is the author of the best-selling "Shopaholic" series. Her main character, Becky Bloomwood, is found in all five Shopaholic books. "Confessions of a Shopaholic" was released as a major motion picture in 2009. Madeleine Wickham (nee Townley) is this author's real name. She was educated at Putney High School and New College, Oxford, England. She worked as a financial journalist before writing fiction. Her title Wedding Night made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2013.
When the love of Lottie's life gives her a vacation instead of an engagement ring, she breaks up with him in typical dramatic Lottie style. Days later, her college boyfriend Ben makes an appearance, and the two quickly decide to we'd. Meanwhile, Lottie's sister Fliss and Ben's best friend Lorcan frantically try to derail the wedding night while they fight their own growing attraction. Never fear: in the end-after international flights, bribery, blackmail, and disaster-all the characters end up discovering true love and learning a bit about themselves in the process.
Verdict: Kinsella continues to delight in creating quirky characters and over-the-top situations, and this title is a perfect choice for those craving a great escape.

Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose during lunch at one of London's fanciest restaurants. But when his big question involves a trip abroad, not a trip down the aisle, she's completely crushed. So when Ben, an old flame, calls her out of the blue and reminds Lottie of their pact to get married if they were both still single at thirty, she jumps at the chance. No formal dates--just a quick march to the altar and a honeymoon on Ikonos, the sun-drenched Greek island where they first met years ago.
Their family and friends are horrified. Fliss, Lottie's older sister, knows that Lottie can be impulsive--but surely this is her worst decision yet. And Ben's colleague Lorcan fears that this hasty marriage will ruin his friend's career. To keep Lottie and Ben from making a terrible mistake, Fliss concocts an elaborate scheme to sabotage their wedding night. As she and Lorcan jet off to Ikonos in pursuit, Lottie and Ben are in for a honeymoon to remember, for better... or worse.
