The Wedding Girl

I had no idea until a couple of weeks ago that Sophie Kinsella wrote books under her real name: Madeline Wickham. I noticed on Amazon that books my Wickham were suggestions for people who liked Kinsella and Jennifer Weiner, so I looked into her and realized she and Kinsella were one and the same! I immediately headed to the library and checked out
The Wedding Girl. This was written before the Shopaholic series, and the writing feels a little less polished. However, I really liked this book and was surprised by the ending, which usually doesn't happen this type of novel. Wickham is still quite funny here, just as she is in the Shopaholic series. It's a fast read and will keep you entertained. It's light and fluffy, but at the same time it's more serious than the Shopaholic books. If you're a fan of Kinsella, I would definitely suggest checking this out!
