One wedding. No funeral. One unqualified catastrophe.

Dominic was the little white lie 30-and-still-unwed Sophy Metcalfe told to soothe her nagging mother. But now her perfect sister Belinda is tying the knot and Sophy's going to have to produce the charming, successful ideal boyfriend she invented, since the genuine article vanished after a single, resoundingly unsuccessful evening.

Desperate, she hires a male escort sight unseen to get her through the Nuptials from Hell. But the trouble with white lies is they tend to multiply, especially at a gala disaster filled with new intrigues and old flames. And the trouble with Josh, her hired date, is he's kind of cute, in a rugged, too sexy for his own good way. And then there's the biggest trouble of all, because every wedding day is followed by a night. And, of course, a morning after. Download and start listening now!

    " Alright written, would be fine if not for all the rampant internalized misogyny, boy delirium and weight obsession. I couldn't like or relate to the main character, no matter how hard I tried, because she was so horrible to other women and hard on herself in a way that came across as insignificant and self-righteous. The writer also insists on having every single female character have broken up with their exes because the guys cheated on them -- which comes across as a case of "women become unlikable if they break up with men unless they've done something unforgivable." Which they are not. The love interest is appealing enough, though at one point I started feeling bad for him because Sophy was so full of hatred, even if he wasn't aware of it. The book also walked around the potential taboo-ness of the premise by [SPOILER] having it turn out Josh was only working as an escort as a favor to a friend who ran the company Sophy called up, and didn't actually work as an escort at all [/SPOILER], which I get, I do, but which is also an enormous cop-out. (And I thought The Wedding Date, which is very loosely based on this, pulled it off, so clearly it's not an impossible plot point to handle.) Anyway, really don't recommend this book. Would go as far as to anti-recommending it, even. "

    " I remember being pretty entertained by this when I read it, but that was 8 years ago. Definitely chick lit, but it was pretty funny, and the writing wasn't bad. (I do remember for sure that it was ten times better than the movie they made from it, The Wedding Date. That movie was lifeless.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista Sagli | 1/23/2014

    " Funny and interesting to read a British author. Story line is funny but at some point it goes to far and you wonder when it will come to a close. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany L. | 1/21/2014

    " Funny story about a 30 year old girl who lies to her parents that she has a boyfriend and she goes so far as to make up all this information about him. When it comes time for her sisters wedding they expect him to be there and so she hires someone from an escort service. Her attitude throughout and the funny stuff that happens makes it a cute book. "

    " Way better than the movie that abuses it!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 1/19/2014

    " Oh my goodness gracious I could not put this book down!! It was awesome! The main character, Sohpy, was great! She made me laugh out loud and she was a very relatable character. She seemed the average girl whom I could definitely be good friends with! (If she were real!) This is the book that the movie "The Wedding Date" is based on but I would have to say the book is much different but in an absolute great way! Overall a fabulous read with romance and laugh out loud qualities! A definite five star read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 1/15/2014

    " I think that I like this book so much because it was made into a movie that I love. "

    " I quite enjoyed it , very easy to read, chick lit, ended very abruptly tho! "

    " much better than the movie The Wedding Date, very funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christi | 1/3/2014

    " kooky British chick lit - a little too contrived but cute "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracey | 1/3/2014

    " A nice if somewhat uneventful book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi | 1/1/2014

    " This book got on my nerves at first. This chick has a pity party through the whole book. It was very annoying but of course she finally figures things out and gets over herself. It's a fast easy read if you can get past the whole 'woe is me' parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Maxwell | 12/17/2013

    " This was such a fun read! Still remember it after all of these years and SOO much better than the movie! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen Crowell | 12/17/2013

    " Rockin' chick lit! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chasity | 11/29/2013

    " The movie "The Wedding Date" with Deborah Messing is based off of this book. There were lots of differences between them but I loved them both. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 11/19/2013

    " This book was so fun to read! It's hilarious and I love it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne Macartney | 10/4/2013

    " Funny, lighthearted stuff with that wry British sense of humor. Young Brit who hires a guy to pose as her boyfriend for a wedding. Well done and different than the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 5/14/2013

    " The book is soooooo much better than the movie. Very witty in an English, Bridget Jones sort of way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daphy Daphy | 5/12/2013

    " Really funny and good book. Recommended by Anna. I loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Niki Paul | 4/24/2013

    " This was a funny, space filler while I scoured the bookstores for something new to read. Got a few chuckles in, but not much else. The movie (The Wedding Date) is VERY loosely based on the book.... like barely. The movie is highly reccommended. The book is only reccomended if you are bored.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg | 4/12/2013

    " This was a bit of fluff, but funny with believable characters. It's often nice to read a book with a lead character you would definitely be friends with, even if you would go about being complete idiots together. 3.5 stars "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauriecz | 8/27/2012

    " I loved this book, it really made me laugh and I enjoyed that. I heard they were making it into a movie and I will see that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 7/6/2012

    " This is the book that the movie, The Wedding Date was based off of. Loved the movie and the book was just as good if not better. I laughed out loud numerous times. And finished it in less than a week. It's a good pool book or Chick Lit as Vanessa would say. :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 1/3/2012

    " Very enjoyable quick summer read. "

    " Really cute brit chicklit, turned into movie "wedding date" "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julie | 4/15/2011

    " This book was made into the film The Wedding Date. That someone read this book and thought it would make a good movie is astonishing. The book is disjointed, poorly written, unfunny, and seems to go on forever. Avoid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lizz | 4/12/2011

    " Love the British humor, but you may get lost in translation. This book is absolutely nothing like the movie, The Wedding Date, so don't expect any similarities. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/20/2011

    " Great comedy-of-errors! I might not have known the movie Wedding Date was based on this if I hadn't read it here. The premise is the same (girl hires escort for her sister's wedding), but other than that they are quite different. I found it funny and entertaining chick-lit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 2/14/2011

    " Das perfekte Buch, um zwei Tage halbkrank im Bett oder auf dem Sofa zu verbringen. Und um Meilen besser als die Verfilmung!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 2/7/2011

    " Funny story just to giggle with! It is fun to ocmpare the book to the movie (of which I really enjoyed the movie) Adult reading: langugage not appropriate for readers who do not like curse words. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fiona | 1/29/2011

    " I quite enjoyed it , very easy to read, chick lit, ended very abruptly tho! "

    " Mencoba baca chicklit....
    Dikirimi teman sepuluh judul... hahaha. Baru satu ini yang dibaca tuntas. Lainnya, cuma beberapa halaman depan, tengah, dan belakang.
    Gak tahaaaan... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexandria | 1/9/2011

    " Good book, very cute story. But slow to start off, but it picked up about halfway through! Lovely! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 10/12/2010

    " Took a little time to get accustomed to the British slang. Otherwise, I thought it was quite humorous and recommend it. "

    " I loved this book, it really made me laugh and I enjoyed that. I heard they were making it into a movie and I will see that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 9/9/2010

    " Definite chick-lit! But I like that, so it's okay. The movie "Wedding Date" (Debra Messing) is based on this book. Language warning. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandy | 8/3/2010

    " This is the book that the movie wedding date came from... but the book is so much better!!! hands down one of my favourite british chick lit authors. fun, romantic, sassy... great read every single time!!! "
