STORY: 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.
REVIEW: Now in her mid-30’s, Lottie has been with Richard for a couple of years. They get along, have fun and today and she is sure he has asked her out for a special lunch to actually propose. She is so excited but when he asks her another question instead, she is floored! She was sure he was going to propose. Utterly furious, she walks out of the restaurant and literally into the arms of an old flame from many years back. Ben remembers all of the wonderful times during the gap-year summer they spent on the island of Ikonos.
They had promised one another that if they had not married by the age of 30, they would marry each other….so they do and head back to Ikonos for their honeymoon. However, Lottie’s sister, Fliss, currently going through a nasty divorce or her own, does not want to see her little sister make a big mistake. Also opposed to the marriage is Lorcan, Ben’s old friend and manager of Ben’s huge company. Knowing that they have made a huge mistake, Fliss and Lorcan then plot to sabotage Lottie and Ben’s wedding night.
Once again, Sophie Kinsella has masterfully put together a wonderful comedy of errors that promises to keep you laughing and turning the pages. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel!
