My sisters wedding. By Vicky Pattison.
For better or worse, two families are about to become one . . .
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?

This book was a breath of fresh air!
My sisters wedding is told from the perspectives of both sisters, Becky, and Lizzie, with a little of Nicole's perspective thrown in. This is something that worries me going into a new book but in this book it worked perfectly. Each sister had their own distinctive personality and I never get confused as to who's perspective I was reading.
Its not your usual chick lit love triangle, it's a really gripping, fast moving, fun story.
I loved Becky and Lizzie equally, they are both completely different but their relationship is wonderful.
The other characters are all well written, they are more than just props, I felt like we got to know them all, just enough.
There's so much going on in this book, and yet Vicky Pattison keeps the story moving effortlessly.
The dialogue is fresh and honest, the storyline is the right side of far fetched, it all felt believable, from the working class girl marrying the rich boy from the family of socialites, which of course attracts the attention of the press, to Lizzie finding her dream job through her love of instagram, and the bitchy family member being taken down a peg or two.
I haven't got a bad word to say about this book. I loved it. Absolutely loved it.
I'm not particularly a fan of the term chick lit, because I feel it takes something away from a genre that can and does produce great books. My sisters wedding is chick lit done exceptionally well.
My sisters wedding is a perfect summer read and I'm giving it a very well deserved 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
