Book Description

My Perfect Wedding is the sequel to International Bestselling Novel Fourteen Days Later.

WARNING! This book contains screwball comedy, quirky characters, and farcical situations...

Helen Grey is finally getting everything she wants. She's about to have the perfect dream wedding and begin an exciting new life abroad on the sunny Mediterranean island of Cyprus. But living the dream isn't all it's cracked up to be.

After a mix-up at the airport, Helen finds herself drawn into the midst of an elaborate plot to steal an ancient statue and assassinate a local businessman. And as if that wasn't bad enough, her wedding dress is AWOL, the statue seems to be cursed, and Helen is wanted by the police.

With the big day rapidly approaching, a roller-coaster of mishaps, misunderstandings, and disasters threatens to turn the newlyweds into nearlyweds.

Can Helen prevent an assassination, save the statue, and have the perfect wedding? Or will the day to remember turn into one she'd rather forget?

Sibel Hodge has dual British/Turkish Cypriot nationality, dividing her time between Hertfordshire and North Cyprus. She is a qualified personal trainer, sports and massage therapist, and writes freelance feature articles on health, fitness, and various lifetyle subjects. Prior to this, she also worked for Hertfordshire Constabulary for ten years. 

Her first novel, Fourteen Days Later, was short listed for the Harry Bowling Prize 2008 and received a highly commended by the Yeovil Literary Prize 2009. It is a romantic comedy with a unique infusion of British and Turkish Cypriot culture. Written in a similar style to Catherine Alliott and Marian Keyes, Fourteen Days Later is My Big Fat Greek Wedding meets Bridget Jones. My Perfect Wedding is the sequel to Fourteen Days Later, although it can be read as a standalone novel.
The Fashion Police is her second novel and was a runner up in the Chapter One Promotions Novel Competition 2010 and nominated for Best Novel with Strong Romantic Elements 2010 by The Romance Reviews. It is a screwball comedy-mystery, combining murder and mayhem with romance and chick-lit, and the first in a series featuring feisty, larger-than-life insurance investigator, Amber Fox. Written in a similar style to Janet Evanovich and Myron Bolitar, The Fashion Police is Stephanie Plum meets Harlan Coben. Be Careful What You Wish For is the second Amber Fox mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and True Commentary on Life! January 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
My Perfect Weeding by Sibel Hodge jumps right into the story from the first page. Active words keeps the reader turning the pages. Told in first person, from the beginning, I wanted to know more about this "Karem" and how she felt about him.

Dialogue is refreshing and very real. The way Hodge weaves dialogue into the story feels very natural, not forced like with some authors. She even has a few comedic scenes and lines to keep the reader engaged. I laughed out loud on some occasions. "Mr. Potato Head," need I say more?

In this laugh-out loud, real to the bone, commentary on what being married is like, I felt like I got to the know the two main characters very well and learn a thing or two about relationships.

With an atmosphere in Nicosia, there is plenty to draw from to keep the reader visually stimulated, and united with interesting dialogue, this novel was fun and hard to put down.

We often think life will be perfect if only....but his story is a real-life kick in the butt, revealing that life is never perfect. A bumpy ride, full of ups and downs, this story was very enjoyable.

I recommend this to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-Stop Fun March 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved My Perfect Wedding. Main character Helen Grey has moved to Cypress with her fiancé, Kalem. The fun starts right away when the two are detained at the airport because Helen has played a joke on Kalem. Once things get sorted out, they are on their way to their wedding and the adventure of a lifetime. Helen uncovers an assassination plot that includes the theft of a priceless bust of Cleopatra. Complications threaten to not only cost Helen her perfect wedding, but land her in jail.

Helen is funny and witty and I laughed out loud at some of her one-liners. This a screwball comedy of a book, so the main plot with the criminals and the way Helen tries to prevent the crime, while implausible, don't detract at all from the story. They are part of the fun. Think Lucy and Ethel or Laverne and Shirley over the top madness. One of my favorite scenes from My Perfect Wedding occurs when Helen pretends to be a hooker to stop the bad guy. Very funny.

Ms. Hodge has a very readable style and a knack for good storytelling. She also did a great job describing the setting. By the end of the book she had me ready to book a vacation to Cypress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast, Furious and Fabulous! July 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading 14 Days Later, I fell in love with Helen so I was excited to start reading My Perfect Wedding. And it was fast, furious, funny and fabulously fun! It was a little over the top, but that's why I enjoyed it so much. The wacky predicaments Helen found herself in and all the colorful characters only added to its appeal. And Kalem's parents were a riot! I wished there was more of them!
My Perfect Wedding was satisfying, action packed, hilarious and well . . . a perfect sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hysterically funny, as expected. September 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is technically the sequel to Fourteen Days Later but could be read as a standalone book. This time around Helen is on her way to Northern Cyprus with Kamen for a few days of rest and relaxation before her dream wedding. Only for Helen (being somewhat of a magnet for bad luck) it doesn't quite go to plan and it just gets worse from there...

This was hysterically funny. Helen once again lurches from one disaster to another, somehow finding herself in the process. It was lovely to be reacquainted with familiar characters. Once again the story rocketed along, and with the vivid descriptions of Northern Cyprus, I felt like I was there with them. It was a real page turner and I read almost all of it in one day. The ending was fabulous and just perfect for the story.

If you have read Fourteen Days Later you will love this. Even if you haven't you will love this. It is a nice light funny read that no one can help but to enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars My Perfect Wedding March 15, 2011
By BigAl
Format:Kindle Edition
I found the main character, Helen, an endearing, yet at times frustrating (even infuriating) character. She's a smart and successful woman, yet she continually makes shortsighted and obviously incorrect decisions. In addition, her luck is so terrible that even somewhat harmless thing still backfire. Helen and her fiancé haven't made it on their plane in the first chapter before security is detaining them as suspected terrorists due to a couple practical jokes gone wrong.

The other main characters also add spice to the story. Helen's fiancé, Kaleem, alternates between a foil for Helen's questionable actions and a partner in crime. Kaleem's uncle appears to be a Mediterranean Redneck, but eventually showed I'd underestimated him. Kaleem's parents are sick in their hotel room most of the book, yet provide an ongoing joke regarding the number of condoms they're using. We've got a few villains, some friends of the couple-to-be, and even some celebrities round out what would be described as an ensemble cast were this a TV show.

After the airport episode, things continue going downhill for Helen. There is mystery, suspense, a touch of terror, and plenty of chances to shake your head and laugh while saying, "Helen, what are you thinking?"

How you'll react to My Perfect Wedding is largely dependent on your sense of humor. If you prefer something sly and subtle that sneaks up on you this might sometimes seem too over-the-top. For many of us, it's full of laughs.
