“Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose during lunch at one of London’s fanciest restaurants 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."
I was so ecstatic when I found out that she will be releasing a book 26th of April. Wedding Night. I knew, deep in my sucker for chick-lit heart that it is going to be like the rest, that I would feel that scrumptious dessert like feeling again.
Let me get to the things I loved about it first. The plot may seem like a single story based on Lottie, but it's not. It also include her sister's, Fliss. I like the fact that she tackled upon a different kind of approach. I also loved that the quirkiness of the characters were there. Fun!
Yet, there are things I found a little to bland, like it lacked the "swoony" part. I only said "awww" a couple of times. Also, I would have loved it if the locations she used actually existed. I tried googling 'The Amba Hotel' in Ikonos, but nada! It would have been nice to see pictures of it.
Nevertheless, I still like Sophie's writing, maybe not really in this novel, but... ;)
