Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose, but then his big question involves a trip abroad—not a trip down the aisle. Completely crushed, Lottie reconnects with an old flame, and they decide to take drastic action. No dates, no moving in together, they’ll just get married . . . right now. Her sister, Fliss, thinks Lottie is making a terrible mistake, and will do anything to stop her. But Lottie is determined to say “I do,” for better, or for worse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, true and worth the read I'm really glad I decided to buy this book and bring it with me to read on vacation! It started off a little plain, but a third-way through the book I could not stop reading. I loved all the small unexpected twists in the storyline! Kinsella writes the book intelligently and plays with the reader's minds on which of the sister's sides to take, Lottie's or Fliss'. The chapters shift perspectives between the two sisters which allows the reader to see things from both sides. Amazing! These two sisters are relatable, crazy but caring and incredibly funny. I loved this book so much that I had to make sure not to read it all on the beach so that I can enjoy my long flight back home by reading! The only reason why I wouldn't give it 5 stars is because I would have liked the ending to be a bit more grand than it was! But still worth the read! :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Ending Update to last review. Disappointing ending. Was anticipating a good ending - but was flat and didn't flow with the rest of the story.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Sophie kinsella book to date... Loved her previous books for a light enjoyable read. This book was terrible. Characters were not described with any depth and the story doesn't really even make sense. I usually finish her books in a couple days. This one I had to force myself to finish just to see if there was a point. There wasn't......

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Breezy Easy Read Story is a easy quick read. Characters have more of an edge and depth then other books from the same author. Not as funny or light hearted as Shopaholic series but a good read with engaging characters.

Read from the Book

Twenty Days Earlier1LottieI’ve bought him an engagement ring. Was that a mistake?I mean, it’s not a girly ring. It’s a plain band with a tiny diamond in it, which the guy in the shop talked me into. If Richard doesn’t like the diamond, he can always turn it round.Or not wear it at all. Keep it on his nightstand or in a box or whatever.Or I could take it back and never mention it. Actually, I’m losing confidence in this ring by the minute, but I just felt bad that he wouldn’t have anything. Men don’t get the greatest deal out of a proposal. They have to set up the occasion, they have to get down on one knee, they have to ask the question, and they have to buy a ring. And what do we have to do? Say “yes.”Or “no,” obviously.I wonder what proportion of marriage proposals end in a “yes” and what proportion end in a “no”? I open my mouth automatically to share this thought with Richard—then hastily close it again. Idiot.“Sorry?” Richard glances up.“Nothing!” I beam. “Just . . . great menu!”I wonder if he’s bought a ring already. I don’t mind, either way. On the one hand, it’s fabulously romantic if he has. On the other hand, it’s fabulously romantic to choose one together.It’s a win-win.I sip my water and smile lovingly at Richard. We’re sitting at a corner table overlooking the river. It’s a new restaurant on the Strand, just up from the Savoy. All black-and-white marble and vintage chandeliers and button-back chairs in pale gray. It’s elegant but not showy. The perfect place for
