The Ashworth sisters couldn’t be more different. Becky is focused, driven and about to marry her lovely fiancé, Daniel Balfour. Lizzie, on the other hand, bounces from one temp job to another, keeps falling for the wrong man and is a whirlwind of chaos in Becky’s otherwise well-ordered life. But they love each other fiercely and the Ashworth way has always been family comes first. As preparations for Becky and Daniel’s wedding get underway, it soon becomes clear that the Ashworth way is not the Balfour way. Daniel’s family have never thought Becky was good enough for him but he loves her and that’s always been enough for the happy couple. But when Lizzie gets caught in the crossfire between Becky and the Balfours, Becky and Lizzie find themselves drifting apart at a time when they need each other the most. Will they be able to repair the damage before Becky walks down the aisle?
‘My Sister’s Wedding’ is another delicious book by Vicky Pattison, hailed as her best book to date, this book is filled with sass and attitude about sibling love.
Becky is a successful book editor, completely in love with her long term boyfriend, Daniel so when he proposes to her, she’s delighted even though she’s not overly impressed with his snobby parents and bitchy socialite sister, Nicola. But as news spreads of their upcoming nuptials, Becky finds herself the centre of attention with paparazzi following her every step and suddenly everyone wants a piece of her. And as Becky finds her life coming together with a successful career and a new fiancée, her younger sister’s Lizzie’s is unravelling with no job, sleeping on her best friends sofa and hated by the public, Lizzie is delighted that her older sister is getting married but can’t help feeling left out.
I really enjoyed this book, combine ‘Made In Chelsea’ and ‘Geordie Shore’ and this book is the end result. The story is primarily seen through the eyes of both Becky and Lizzie and both perspectives made for entertaining reading.
I loved both leading ladies and both of them had characteristics that were quite similar to Vicky herself. Where, Becky is strong willed and opinionated, she is fiercely protective of her younger sister, Lizzie is wild, independent and with quick wit. They compliment each other so well and majority of their scenes together are hilarious and warm hearted, as Becky is not only the older sister but a maternal figure as the sisters mother left them.
Warm hearted and fun from the very beginning, this book was an easy read that flowed at a lovely pace. Wittily and cleverly written, Vicky writes honestly about the consequences of being a reality star, the following photographers, the jealousy and the loss of independence, she writes frankly with each positivity, there is negativity.
An engaging and enjoyable read, ‘My Sister’s Wedding’ is a witty and romantic tale that was another great story from Vicky Pattison.
