Description

Problem is, two other people are planning her wedding: Becky’s overjoyed mother—who has been waiting forever to host a backyard wedding, with the bride resplendent in Mum’s frilly old gown; and her high-society soon-to-be mother-in-law—who insists on a glamorous, all-expenses-paid affair at the Plaza.

I stare at the statement in puzzlement, wrinkling my brow and trying to think – and then suddenly, the truth dawns on me. But when the must-have celebrity obstetrician Becky’s been so desperate to see turns out to be Luke’s glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky’s perfect world starts to crumble. The Guy seems intelligent and rational, so why he would hitch himself to a financial disaster in Prada heels is beyond me. And at the last minute, now I remember, I decided to pay on credit and keep all that handy cash for myself.

Dust Jackets are not guaranteed and when still present, they will have various degrees of tear and damage.

Well this book is a masterclass in light-comedy tongue-firmly-in-cheek modern woman storytelling, I kid you not! Things are looking cheerier than ever, until Becky’s parents announce they’re moving to ultra-trendy Shoreditch—unable to resist the draw of craft beer and smashed avocados—and ask Becky if she’ll host this year. That is, until Luke announces he’s moving to New York for business—and he asks Becky to go with him!This is my third Kinsella book, and so far the women are always complete idiotic dip-shits that only barely manage to bumble through their careers while managing to make an ass of themselves at every turn.

But I’m always reaching for a Sophie Kinsella’s book when I feel down, she’s just so good at making you feel good! She got herself in completely avoidable positions and then would spend years trying to get herself out of them. This book had me smiling from the beginning to the end, and if Becky felt a little bit too dumb or too flawed at the beginning, I thought her character development was top notch and, by the end of the book, she felt even more human and relatable. I adjusted my expectations and thought it would be one of those rare instances where the movie is better than the book, but I loved them equally but in different ways! The Tennis Party was immediately hailed as a success by critics and the public alike and became a top ten bestseller.The site's consensus reads: "This middling romantic comedy underutilizes a talented cast and delivers muddled messages on materialism and conspicuous consumption.
