#1 New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella returns with her trademark blend of sparkling wit and playful romance in this page-turning story of a wedding to remember—and a honeymoon to forget.

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.

I always enjoy Sophie Kinsella's novels, and this was no exception. The memorable characters and intriguing plot truly make Lottie and Ben’s Wedding Night a novel to remember.

I noticed people on the train were looking at me oddly - then I realized I was openly laughing and snickering, I just couldn't help myself. She writes the voices of both main characters so distinctly and humorously.

A fun book to read as most of hers are. Very easy light reading.

I'm not usually a reader of chik-lit but I really enjoyed this book.

Amazon had mixed reviews some people thought this was one of the worst stories Sophie Kinsella has told. If it's one of her worsts then I hope to be surprised by her bests :)

Sophie Kinsella's books are basically romantic comedy movies you'll actually want to watch. This one may not be as good as I've Got Your Number but it was still a pretty enjoyable read. All I'm saying is that was a honeymoon from hell!

Patron reviews from the Adult Summer Game: "Not very well written. I have found a lot of the other ones by this author a lot lighter and funnier. Lots of little details that were ignored and that didn't make sense."

"A fun novel that's light and entertaining."

This romance novel by Sophie Kinsella was hilarious, charming, and a real page-turner. Some say the best part of romance is the desire (yet to be fulfilled), and this book is chock full of exactly that. The well-meaning sister of the bride does everything in her power to keep the newlyweds of this hasty, rebound relationship from consummating their marriage. I can't wait to see the movie! (Just as Confessions of a Shopaholic became a major motion picture.) It will be a great romantic comedy!

Kinda cute but almost all the characters annoyed me.

This was a perfect light read. I really had a good laugh reading this one. Definitely recommend it.

I have read quite a few of Kinsella's novels to take a fun break from more serious reading. I am finding that the plots are getting more and more implausible and repetitive. The book had its moments, but nowhere near as fun as the original Shopaholic books.

" I've spent fifteen years chasing pale imitations of you, and now I'm back here with the original I should never have let go. My life has been darkness without you and now I want to switch on the light. Will you do me the honor of marrying me ? Please ? " - Ben's drunken proposal to Lottie upon reuniting after 15 years

Told in alternating viewpoints, the story opens as Lottie and her boyfriend Richard are having a "special" lunch at a swanky restaurant. Lottie, after hearing Richard has a big question to ask her, thinks that he is planning to propose to her. So, Lottie is absolutely crushed when Richard reveals that his question was about what kind of trip the two of them should plan with his air miles. She breaks up with him when he does not seem interested in marrying her. Much to the astonishment of her older sister Fliss, Lottie quickly rebounds and accepts a marriage proposal from an old flame named Ben. As Lottie and Ben travel to Ikonos, Greece for their wedding night, they are secretly followed by Fliss, Richard, and Ben’s business partner Lorcan who also thinks the impromptu marriage is a bad idea.
