Fans of Kinsella’s previous novels, including her famous Shopaholic series, will certainly enjoy her latest starring quirky, impulsive, fiercely independent and lovable female characters. You’ll laugh as you root for everything to work out in the end. The author splits her narrative, giving this particular novel an excitingly new and fresh take.
After Lottie’s boyfriend doesn’t propose to her like she expects him to, she is completely crushed. So when Ben, an old flame, calls out of the blue and reminds her of a pact they made to get married if they were both still single at 30, she jumps at the chance. They go for a quick march to the altar, then off to a honeymoon on Ikonos, the Greek island where they met 15 years ago. Their friends and family are horrified. Lottie’s older sister, Fliss, and Ben’s colleague, Lorcan, scheme to sabotage their wedding night. As Fliss and Lorcan jet off to Ikonos in hot pursuit, Lottie and Ben are in for a honeymoon they’ll never forget, no matter how hard they try. (DIAL, Jun., 446 pp., $26.00)
