The Wedding Girl by Madeleine Wickham

Front Flap: From the author of the internationally bestselling Sophie Kinsella novels, Madeleine Wickham's The Wedding Girl is a delighted comedy about a secret that becomes the ultimate wedding crasher! At the age of eighteen, in that first golden Oxford summer, Milly was up for anything. Now, ten years later, she is a very different person. Engaged to a man who is wealthy, serious, and believes her to be perfect, she is facing the biggest and most elaborate wedding imaginable. But one small episode from the past has the power to completely derail her carefully planned nuptials. Milly has locked away this history so securely that she has almost persuaded herself it doesn't exist- until, when only four days to go, her secret catches up with her... And when "I do" gives you deja vu, it could be a problem. Wow, that was sooo good and gossipy and secret-y and intense! Ha. Every character that entered in just had like new juicy secrets or something wrong with them or I dunno but it was def really good! With Milly she is such a sweet girl. The thing I don't understand is why she's acting like she isn't herself, but in the end it's ok since she ends up actually getting married! Because the photographer, Alexander was like a boy who picked up something and then he recognized her. Everyone thought he told the guy who was going to marry them but it was actually her godmother who thought the marriage was a bad idea! I was sooo like omg nooo when Milly was about go in the car with her godmother, like Isobel run! and then her sister ends up being pregnant and by guess who, Simon's dad! And Simon is Milly's ex-fiance then fiance again then husband! And his dad, Harry, is like a millionaire! And then her mother, Olivia, was like obssessed with the wedding! I hope my mom won't get like that but I doubt she will. But it was so beautiful at the end when she was walking down the aisle, it's amazing1 :] But Madeleine has such a great mind, and so many secrets, I totally forgot even to mention that she was married to that guy 10 years ago and she got in contact with Rupert, the guy he loved and they ended up breaking up like 2 months after the marriage and rupert just found out that Allan died and that told his wife, then Rupert told Milly. I know that was very confusing, but hey I like telling it in my type of crazy tell everything at once and be everywhere way! :] But it was a good book and I'm excited and look forward to reading more of her books as Madeleine Wickham instead of Sophie Kinsella. hehe
