September 20, 2009 The Wedding Girl by Madeleine Wickham
I've usually found the books she writes as Madeleine Wickham to have less obnoxious main character than those she writes as Sophie Kinsella. This is the case again with this book, but only by a little bit.
I was a bit frustrated at the "la la la, this isn't happening" approach to the problem by the main character, even as she panics about it. I found the older sister's quandary and mystery surrounding her situation much more interesting. The mother was completely unlikable until the very end. I enjoyed how each part of the main story, tracking down the first husband, was unraveled, catching up with the characters where they are now. However, the ending felt rushed and tacked on after all the lead up. Still enjoy the first book I read under this name the best - funny how that happens!
