Summary

Does a bride-to-be ever know for certain that she's chosen the right man?

Ellie Andrews is finally getting married. Or she will be if she drinks enough champagne to pluck up the courage for her trip down the aisle.

The problem is that after months spent bickering over menus and table placements, Ellie's never felt more distant from the man she's supposed to be spending the rest of her life with. As last-minute nerves take hold, a night of soul-searching sees Ellie reflecting back on old flames in a bid to reassure herself she's making the right decision. There's Rupert - adoring but dull; Jay - the teenage crush; Marcus - sexy but toxic; and Xander - a true friend. But as the sun rises and the ceremony looms ever closer, Ellie is still unsure if she's doing the right thing.

Then an unexpected encounter turns her world upside down. Should she take a chance? Or should she stick with the choices she's made? As Ellie makes her way to the church, only one question remains: who will be waiting for her at the altar?

Irritating and unsatisfactory...

...with a confusing final chapter - timelines jumping about all over the place - and an annoying flake for a heroine...

Enjoyable but predictable

I don’t want to ruin this for anyone but if you are hoping for a love story where the leading lady picks a man who’s actually good for her rather than a man she imagines might be the one if they just have a chance to get together, you will be disappointed, could have been a great story but needed a twist not a predictable yawn

unusual

I enjoyed it overall.....got a bit confused as it's told from different points in the main characters life....so was never quite sure who the plot was about next....but an enjoyable listen

Terrible drivel from a bodyshaming author

Just as a size 12 is not fat, a plot is not an optional thing you can jump in and out of having. Trash from someone who should reconsider their career choice.

Size 12 is fat?? really??

This book is full of unrealistic scenarios. The main one being why on earth is she having 2nd thoughts about marrying her Mr Right.

Plus anyone who thinks that a size 12 is chubby and has fat issues is doing absolutely nothing for women's body confidence issues!! The continuous topic of her size being inadequate made me so angry!

Amuzing story

Enjoyed listening to this story. Did find it very predictable but funny. There us a continuity error towards the last couple of chapters. Good light summer read.

Cute, fun descriptive writing style

Listening to the audiobook sometimes I wouldn’t know if a new chapter was current or past. But funny writing style reminded me of Sophie Kinsella /shopaholic series. A light read in between my more serious books 😃

Boring and unlikable heroine; frustrating

I wouldn't recommend this book because the heroine is a directionless wimp who allows herself to be denigrated and bullied by her mother and four older sisters.

The other reason I hated this book is because it takes the listener a while to realize you are going back and forth from the present to he past, even though the past sounds like the present. This is especially confusing at the end when you're waiting for the book to end and find out who she's going to marry already and she STILL can't make up her mind!

The bravest thing she does in the entire book is say no to a marriage proposal. From there the book gets worse as she dates an MP, unwittingly gets trapped up a tree, continues her crush on a longtime friend and then when something happens that he can't be with her, she starts a whirlwind romance with the nicest rock star on he planet.

Seriously, I kept waiting and waiting for the book to end just so I could stop the torture.
