Publisher's Summary

In Isobel's Wedding from number one best-selling author Sheila O'Flanagan, Isobel faces every bride-to-be's worst nightmare. Not to be missed by fans of Freya North and Veronica Henry. 

Four hundred and twenty pearls hand sewn onto the wedding dress. The Mediterranean honeymoon booked for months. A pile of presents bigger than Everest. And her lovely Tim, the most perfect bridegroom a girl could wish for. 

Except, two weeks before the wedding, he changes his mind...Isobel's wedding is off. 

Her world in tatters, Isobel turns to Spain, a new job, a new life and as many men as she can decently manage. Including the very appealing Nico, with whom, she feels, there could be a long-term future. But part of Isobel knows that she will have to go back home someday. And that, despite all that's happened since she left, she still has unfinished business....

Isobel's Wedding

Isobel's Wedding. For a start got caught this is an old book maybe 15 or more years old. It is not a new book from the author. Realised I had already read it after a few paragraphs. Narrator is excellent. Story initially is interesting then you go through many chapters where Isobel goes on how much she loves her ex fiancee. She moves to Spain has some one night stands and goes back and forth with deciding what she wants until you have had enough. Then the story ends up with an ending that is not satisfying. You listen for 16 hours and then after all the carry on you have to assume the outcome. I like an epilogue so you actually know exactly what is supposed to happen. Not saying anymore so not to spoil it for anyone who reads it. It is so annoying the way after a new chapter starts some authors are writing for instance about painters or something nothing to do with story.
You need to be careful as some books are being rereleased with a different cover Jill Mansell a good example.

Old fashioned and outdated

I had assumed that the release date on the site was the date of publication - no! This was actually published in the last century; back in the day when no one had a mobile phone, had heard of the internet and smoked in pubs etc etc etc, so it was hard to get into a story that doesn’t reflect the social norms of today.

Not likeable

Really disappointed with this book. The main character isn’t very likeable. I kept waiting for some redeeming qualities but they never came. The ending was also disappointing. I really like Sheila O’Flanagans books but not this one sadly.

Bored

Did not like main character and really struggled to listen to the whole book. Not a Cathy Kelly.

Totally frustrating....

Such a frustratingly annoying story. Making decisions is not our heroine's strong suit.
I just wanted to punch her in the face sometimes. Kept going to see how the ending turned out
and it was similarly indecisive.

Pointless

I usually love this authors books but this one is very disappointing. The characters were weak and there was basically no story. Not recommended

Isobel - are you sure that’s your name?

I usually love this author.

Isobel, the main character, cannot decide on anything. I hope she’s not based on anyone because she makes me furious and if I met her in real life we could never be friends. I hung on to the end because I thought it would get better even though I had lost a lot of interest half way through. I wish I had tapped out around the 5hr mark and taken up cross stitch because I would have gotten more out of that.

Ho Hum

Sheila O’Flanagan has long been a favourite author of mine. But this book was awful. It’s like she did not write it at all. Storyline was extremely weak, far too many filler words.

predictable storyline.... little dissapointed...

the whole plot was very predictable and the main character was so childish. I didn't enjoy it as much as I normally enjoy Sheila's books...

Disappointing

One of my favorite authors and my absolute favorite narrator...WHAT HAPPENED ? Such an excruciating storyline. I didn't like any of the characters, particularly the lead character, such an annoying, pathetic woman. The relationships were awful too. I just kept rolling my eyes the whole way through. There was not enough character development and the end was the only good thing about this story. I won't give up on this author though, as I have enjoyed many of her books, I don't know what happened here !

Long, predictable, good narrator

Not sure why I persevered with this. Predictable, some parts of the story had too much detail, other bits glossed over. A main character who almost had me liking her buy mostly made me frustrated.

Why the hell I persevered is beyond me!

Utter crap. Predictable and cheesy. Don’t waste your time or money. I think I must be deranged for perseveringly with it. The only reason I have given one star is because I had to rate it
