The Wedding Girl, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


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...?

Review by

I quite liked this book. It definitely wasn't nearly as good as any of her Kinsella books but it was still good- very different to what I expected it to be like. It started off fairly slow and the writing was really dull and stiff but once I got into it, I really started to enjoy it. <br/><br/>Milly is a likable enough character and I could definitely empathize with her. Simon was a lot harder to like because of how he was portrayed at the beginning but by the end, I thought he was actually a pretty decent person. The story itself was fun and silly while also managing to be meaningful and deal with some darker issues, such as Rupert and Allan's story. I wasn't a huge fan of the inconsistent change of point of view but it worked well at getting everybody's story in. <br/><br/>There were a few twists that I really didn't see coming although the actual ending was pretty predictable given the genre. Overall, I liked it and would be interested in reading some more of her Wickham books.
