The book is written primarily in the POV of two sisters. Lottie and Fliss. Lottie is the flighty younger sister who gets herself into crazy situations because she makes terrible choices when she's depressed about being dumped. Fliss is the older more responsible sister who is more of a control freak and is going through a bitter divorce.
The story flip flops between the two POV's as Lottie dumps her boyfriend because he didn't propose to her. So she decides to marry an old flame that she has just reconnected with and it's only been two weeks since she broke up with her ex-boyfriend. Fliss comes in and tries to stop her sister from a horrible future. It's a bit of a crazy story with a lot going on and of course hilarity ensues because I did laugh out loud several times while reading the book.
Overall, I thought the story was okay. I really did not like Lottie at all. I could not warm up to her character. She was annoying and stupid and completely blinded by her thoughts and actions. It just got on my nerves. I actually really liked the story of Fliss and what she goes through on this journey to help save her sister. Fliss of course makes some terrible decisions of her own but she was more likable and more relate-able as a character.
When I first started reading the book, it took me a few minutes to realize that the chapters were changing, with some being a narrative by Lottie, and some being a narrative by her sister, Fliss. I didn't see much difference between the thought processes of the 2 characters, and Kinsella's attempt to differentiate their personalities is weak.
I feel as if Kinsella was under time pressure to write another book, and threw this one together quickly. The story line is so far-fetched and ridiculous, not to mention predictable. I hope that Kinsella's next book will be more like her earlier stories, which were fun to read.
