Baker & Taylor
Having rashly agreed ten years earlier to a marriage of convenience with her gay friend's partner to secure his citizenship, Milly hides the truth about her married status from her wealthy and serious fiancâe until four days before her wedding.

McMillan Palgrave
At the age of eighteen, in that first golden Oxford summer, Milly was up for anything. Rupert and his American lover, Allan, were an important part of her new, exciting life, so when Rupert suggested to her that she and Allan should get married to keep Allan in the country, Milly didn’t hesitate.

Ten years later, Milly is a very different person and engaged to Simon—who is wealthy, serious, and believes her to be perfect. Milly’s secret history is locked away so securely she has almost persuaded herself that it doesn’t exist—until, only four days before her elaborate wedding. To have and to hold takes on a whole new meaning when one bride’s past catches up with her and bring the present crashing down.

With her trademark style of keen insight, and razor sharp wit, Madeleine Wickham introduces her fanatical fan-base, plus a host of new readers to a fresh and irresistible heroine in The Wedding Girl.

I love Sophie Kinsella books so I was eager to read this one, as it was her earlier writing before she became Sophie Kinsella. I enjoyed this novel. It is not as funny and light-hearted as her well-known novels from later on, but it was still really good. I liked all the characters and was interested in each of their storylines. I liked the way she merged the storylines together; there were a lot of different characters in this book, but not so many that it was confusing. Overall, It was an easy read and enjoyable.

Like many people I am a huge Sophie Kinsella fan and this was the first novel I have read by Madeleine writing as herself. I had to leave my preconceived expectations at the door and take it at face value. It has a unique plotline and definitely kept my interest as I found myself rooting for the main character but I was disappointed that this was a serious novel, unlike the Kinsella ones that often make me laugh out loud. Once I got that concept though, I enjoyed it as a quick holiday read.

Enjoyed this one more than Cocktails for Three (got into it much faster) and couldn't bring myself to put it down. This was one I started over an afternoon and put down at 2 am. Not as over-the-top outrageously funny as when she writes as Sophie Kinsella, but I still really liked this one.

No accounting for taste. I liked this one every bit as much as "Twenties Girl" and "Undomestic Goddess." Very sweet and touching.

Enjoyable, but the book felt a little rushed. It all takes place in the space of less than a week and character development and depth was weak because of that.

This is not one of this author's best novels, but it still has her trademark humor and honesty. Her characters are always real with absurd but somehow realistic situations in a manner that deals with the emotions of the entire cast. It's very appealing. A good winter read. :)

I just don't enjoy Wickham's novels as much as her novels written as Sophie Kinsella. It's somewhat entertaining, but somehow disappointing.
