My Big Fake Wedding by Jessica Hatch – book tour | AD
I love an easy read chick lit so when Bookature was looking for readers to jump on the book tour for My Big Fake Wedding by Jessica Hatch, I knew that it would be a great summer read. I wasn’t disappointed!
When I entered a lottery to win a free wedding, I had no idea that I was about to be cheated on, and unceremoniously dumped, by my ex-boyfriend. So when I win, there’s just one teeny tiny problem… I have no one to walk down the aisle with. All I need to do now is find a husband. Simple, right?
My closest friend Oliver, an old-fashioned romantic, thinks I’m crazy. He snorts when I show him my colour-coded binder, packed with step-by-step instructions for my Husband Hunt. And when he reads my to-do list, he laughs so much his green eyes fill with tears.
Step 1: Figure out what men want
Step 2: Research the best bars for romantic first dates
Step 3: FIND A HUSBAND
Despite following my list to the letter, something happens that the binder could never have predicted. After months of fantasising about this exact moment, I have a tequila-fuelled kiss with my long-term office crush Andrew. But just when I think I’ve found my soon-to-be husband, my ex-boyfriend declares his undying love for me, and Oliver stops returning my calls when I need him the most…
With my wedding day getting ever closer, I’m starting to realise that the only thing more complicated than finding a husband on a deadline, is finding the right one.
WHAT I THOUGHT
I got exactly what I wanted in the pages of My Big Fake Wedding. Great characters and a lot of fun. I managed to fly through it’s pages in a day which is no easy feat for a full time working mama with two young kids in the summer holidays! It was so much fun though and such an easy read.
I did struggle with Beatrice at times as her behaviour towards her friends at times left a bitter taste in the mouth. But that’s also what makes My Big Fake Wedding so great too, as a single event unleashes a whole lot of crazy that started to roll out of control. Something that you could see Bea realised at the time, but seemed powerless to stop. Her character so often being at odds with her behaviour. Though don’t we all behave a little irrational at times?
That’s what makes Bea such a good character though, as despite her faults she owns them and FINALLY grows up.
My Big Fake Wedding us a great easy summer read.
