Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose during lunch at one of London’s fanciest restaurants. But when his big question involves a trip abroad, not a trip down the aisle, she’s completely crushed. So when Ben, an old flame, calls her out of the blue and reminds Lottie of their pact to get married if they were both still single at 30, she jumps at the chance. No formal dates - just a quick march to the altar and a honeymoon on Ikonos, the sun-drenched Greek island where they first met years ago.
Their family and friends are horrified. Fliss, Lottie’s older sister, knows that Lottie can be impulsive - but surely this is her worst decision yet. And Ben’s colleague Lorcan fears that this hasty marriage will ruin his friend’s career. To keep Lottie and Ben from making a terrible mistake, Fliss concocts an elaborate scheme to sabotage their wedding night. As she and Lorcan jet off to Ikonos in pursuit, Lottie and Ben are in for a honeymoon to remember, for better...or worse.

Hilarious, farcical (in a good way), and sweet
So many! I would say when Ben and Lottie keep brainstorming new ways to solve the hotel dilemma. So many hilarious moments ensue.
I would have to say my favorite scene was when Ben approaches the couple on the beach! Especially when the man thinks it's a scam to charge up the phone bill. I cried from laughing so hard!
The most moving moment was the romantic moment at the end which I won't describe since I don't want to ruin the book for anyone.
By far the funniest Sophie Kinsella book. It deserves a higher overall Audible rating in my opinion! I laughed out loud throughout and was in tears from the laughter most of the time. Amazing performances by Jayne Entwistle and Fiona Hardingham. They really brought the characters of Lottie and Fliss, respectively, to life.
I am a big fan of Sophie Kinsella's work, but this book was extremely disappointing. It lacked her usual finesse and wit I've come to love in her other books. Also, the narration missed the mark. Going back and forth between two narrators who are voicing the same characters while sounding vastly different was off putting for me.
I loved this audio book and the author/actors performance. I truly only have one negative thing and that is the last few sentences. Such a great story through and through the ending could have been better
I am an elementary teacher. I love to cycle, swim and walk my dog. I enjoy quilting when I can sit still. I'm learning to Scuba Dive.
It's incredible how many voices the reader created! Just amazing! Sophie Kinsella is so fun to read! This is just an excellent book all around!
Thought this would be a fun summer read/listen, but found the story to be really slow to get into and then ending very fast, despite the harried nature of the story. The characters are - for the most part - very unlikeable. The performance doesn't help - they come across as very whiny. I kept listening until I finished the book, which ends abruptly in a tightly wrapped up package despite taking several chapters to even start at the impossible plot.
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I was hesitant because of all the bad reviews but I'm glad I went for it anyway. It's a fun read, a bit preposterous but you come to expect that with Sophie K books. The narration was good, I enjoyed it while driving and being at the gym. A little too much profanity for my taste but overall I liked it. My favorite of all time book is I've got your number so not close to that but still enjoyable
