Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Kinsella’s latest romantic romp revolves around two sisters with very different notions about love. Impulsive Lottie is expecting her boyfriend, Richard, to propose to her; she’s floored when he instead suggests a vacation using his frequent-flier miles. When Richard balks at the idea of marriage, Lottie breaks up with him. She runs straight into the arms of an old flame, Ben, with whom she spent a magical summer at the age of 18 on the island of Ikonos. Ben is more than ready to rekindle their relationship and walk down the aisle with her. When Lottie’s practical older sister, Fliss, gets wind of her plan to marry Ben, Fliss is determined to stop the nuptials. Ben’s coworker Lorcan seems equally opposed to the wedding, and Fliss thinks they’re set, until Lottie and Ben have a hasty ceremony and jet to Ikonos. Fliss decides she has to sabotage the honeymoon in the hopes of getting Lottie to see that she’s making a huge mistake. There’s plenty of silly fun to be had in this charming comedy of errors. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The kicky new romantic comedy by #1 New York Times best-selling Kinsella of Shopaholic fame will be supported by a major multimedia promotional campaign. --Kristine Huntley

Review

“Sophie Kinsella is beloved by millions—her books are properly mood-altering. Wedding Night is funny, fast, and farcical. I loved it.”—JoJo Moyes, bestselling author of Me Before You

“[A] fun novel that’s as light and bubbly as a glass of wedding champagne.”USA Today
 
“Filled with laugh-out-loud moments, this is Sophie Kinsella at her wittiest. . . . An engrossing novel.”Bookreporter
 
“You won’t be able to stop reading. . . . The narrative gallops along with humorous scenes and great one-liners.”The Daily Mail
 
“A fast-paced, hilarious comedy [with] a charming cast of characters.”—Kirkus Reviews

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am a total fan of Kinsella's books. My favorite was "Can You Keep A Secret?" and my least favorite was "Mini Shopaholic."
That being said, I am like a kid on Christmas Eve when I know a new Kinsella book is out. So perhaps all that exciting build up contributed to the fact that after I read Wedding Night, I was a bit disappointed.
It is typical Kinsella (every single protagonist could be Lucy from I Love Lucy)- but that's the charm of a Kinsella book!
Wedding Night follows the same outline - Lottie is the typical Kinsella character; always finds herself in mishaps. But...for some reason, her character's complete denial and over thinking made me not completely adore her character like I usually do a Kinsella character.
Then we have the character of Fliss - Lottie's older sister. Wedding Night goes back and forth between Lottie's viewpoint and Fliss's viewpoint - and when reading Fliss's viewpoint - it's more or less just rehashing what already happened to Lottie - which makes this book drag (it kills me to say anything negative about a Kinsella book!).
And it's long. Almost 500 pages. This would be fine if Wedding Night is a page turner, but for me, I never found myself saying "OMG, what's going to happen next?"
A bit disappointing - like flat champagne.
My advice: If you're a die hard Kinsella fan and aren't pinching your pennies - go ahead and buy it (I'd still advise you to look for a sale price, I don't believe it's worth the list price of 26.00$)
If you're watching your money - you can safely wait for paperback - or better yet, borrow it.
I'm being generous with the 4 star rating. It was more than "ok" but I certainly didn't love it like I did most of her other books. (And it kills me to admit that!)
Love you Sophie! Thank you for so many years of entertainment! You're very appreciated! Keep On Writing!

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've been a fan of Sophie Kinsella's work for a long time and I'm always glad to see her bring out a new book. I was pretty excited to be able to get her new novel, Wedding Night, from Amazon Vine. Unfortunately I can't say that it's her best work. It reminded me of a situation comedy TV program where everything that happens is based on misunderstandings and the stupidity of the characters, and after a while I just want to scream, "Why are all of you so idiotic?!" and change the channel.

This new book features two sisters, Lottie and Fliss, neither of whom have much self-awareness (although this is typical of Kinsella's heroines, they usually have a few redeeming qualities to balance the airheadedness). As the book opens, Lottie's expecting the big proposal from her boyfriend Richard and Fliss is still recovering from a difficult divorce. Fliss is used to having to pick up the pieces whenever Lottie gets herself into a mess, and, not surprisingly, Lottie gets herself into a huge mess in this book. Both sisters end up learning a lot about themselves, and the pieces more or less get put back together.

I think what didn't work for me in this book was the extremely silly, farcical situations the characters are forced into - without going into spoilers, some of what Fliss does in the name of saving Lottie from her misadventures is ridiculous and unrealistic even for a romantic comedy (another reviewer's comparison to Lucy is apt), where you have to suspend your disbelief a little. I did laugh at times, but by the end I felt that women of Lottie and Fliss' ages (early 30s) should be a little smarter, especially Fliss, who seems to have a responsible job and is a parent to a 7-year-old.

Usually Sophie Kinsella books are light and funny. This one reads like a terrible romantic comedy. I didn't laugh once only cringed.

This is a hard book to review because I wanted to like it so much because I generally like books by this author but it fell disastrously flat for me and I am so sad because her last novel "I've Got Your Number" I actually ended up liking a lot! After my mess last year, I had to make sure I was judging this book on it's own qualities and not my love for the author ;)

I think what the biggest problem is for me with this novel is that there really isn't a single character that isn't an idiot. I mean, we are all idiots in some form but this book has them in spades. Most of Kinsella's books revolve around the one heroine that is a dingbat and gets themselves into one scrape after another while around her is a slew of pragmatic people. This book is a bunch of hair brained idiots and you don't feel yourself rooting for anyone because they are all morons! Lottie rushes into a marriage on the heels of a breakup, Fliss makes one bad decision after another trying to keep her sister from getting married, Ben doesn't seem to have more than an iota of a redeeming quality in him, Lorcan is probably the best of the lot but he has issues himself and even Richard you want to smack a time or two. The only character I was cheering for was Noah, the compulsive liar! That's NOT good.

I really, really, really was looking forward to a fun dip in the silly book pool with this novel but even as a lighthearted beach read I can't recommend it. I finished it, so there is that. There are way too many better books out there to spend ones time enjoying.
