Publisher's Summary

At eighteen, Milly was up for anything. So when a friend asked her to marry him just so that he could stay in England, she didn't hesitate. To make it seem real she dressed up in wedding finery and posed on the steps of the registry office for photographs. Now, ten years later, Milly is a very different person. Engaged to Simon - who is good-looking, wealthy and adores her - she is about to have the biggest and most elaborate wedding imaginable, all masterminded by her mother. Nobody knows about her first marriage, so it's almost as though it never happened - isn't it? But with only four days to go, it looks as though Milly's past is going to catch up with her. Can she sort things out before her fairytale wedding collapses around her? How can she tell Simon? And worse still, how can she tell her mother ...?

Sophie Kinsella - but not as you know her

Having discovered the Sophie Kinsella books by accident during a rainy holiday, I quickly went through the titles published under her own name. This left me in a position where I would either have to wait for her next effort, or try the earlier books published by the same author under the name Madeleine Wickham. Not being a great fan of "girly" books, I'd hoped that I'd enjoyed them as much as I'd had Sophie's Shopaholic series, but although I found "The Wedding Girl" a reasonably good book, with an occasional hint of what was to come once Sophie Kinsella found her unique writing style, it is much more what you'd expect of the "girly book" genre. I'd rate it a fair effort by an author writing to the standard formula for the genre, but it lacks the wit, imagination and humour which are the hallmark of the Sophie Kinsella books and which make, for example, the Shopaholic series so readable. If you like books by authors like Katie Fford, you'll probably enjoy "The Wedding Girl" as well, but if Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series and books like "Twenties Girl" is your cup of tea, you may find that "The Wedding Girl" falls slightly short of your expectations.

Nice chic lit.

I bought this because I like the narrator and she didn't disappoint. Story was good. Deals with homosexuality and marriage break up.
