THE WEDDING GIRL: A GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE WEDDING GIRL
SOPHIE KINSELLA WRITING AS
MADELEINE WICKHAM

ABOUT THE BOOK:
At the age of eighteen, in that first golden Oxford summer, Milly was up for anything. Rupert and his American lover, Allan, were an important part of her new, exciting life, so when Rupert suggested to her that she and Allan should get married to keep Allan in the country, Milly didn’t hesitate.

Ten years later, Milly is a very different person and engaged to Simon—who is wealthy, serious, and believes her to be perfect. Milly’s secret history is locked away so securely she has almost persuaded herself that it doesn’t exist—until, only four days before her elaborate wedding. To have and to hold takes on a whole new meaning when one bride’s past catches up with her and bring the present crashing down.

With her trademark style of keen insight, and razor sharp wit, Madeleine Wickham introduces her fanatical fan-base, plus a host of new readers to a fresh and irresistible heroine in The Wedding Girl.

I am sure this novel would be fascinating, but not so sure it is a genre that would interest me. So if my name is picked please pass on the second name drawn. I couldn't help my self ... I had to write a comment! Isn't it interesting in fiction and also in real life how secrets will not stay under lock and key. I can't find a quicker way for a secret to be unleashed than running for a public office. All your secrets will take flight like a covey of quail. LOL GREAT review!

I love Sophie Kinsella!!! I have read everything she has written under that name and have slowly started to read the books under her real name.

The Wedding Girl has been on my list for a while. I hope I win it!

I didn't know that she wrote under an assumed name. Very interesting. I would love the book because it sounds like just plain fun.

Christa said...

The Wedding Girl seems like such a laid back, fun read (right up my alley!). We have this crazy situation where the main character marries her friends lover to keep him in the country and then years later it comes back to haunt her (it seems). I would love to find out how everyone finds out about her past and how it effects her future.
