4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect summer read, 28 Jun 2013

This review is from: Save the Date (Paperback)
This book was a total breath of fresh air for my ongoing reading slump situation. I had been reading pretty serious books but didn't realise it until I found myself chuckling at the opening chapter of Save The Date.

This chick-lit novel falls firmly in the humour range and while there is plenty of romance and yes even a bit of 'action' this is a light funny story which crams a lot into it's pages. I mean it never lets the pace down one little bit, never mind Ailsa needing a holiday by the end of it I felt like I needed a break at the end.

The basic premise is Ailsa is recovering from a bad breakup and when she receives an invitation for an all expenses paid trip to Italy for her cousin's wedding she goes (after a bit of persuading). Every character is so ridiculous they are completely believable! You do get a pompous uncle, a hysterical-bride-to-be, the sleazy best man and even the ex that makes you think twice. For me this made the novel more enjoyable. Usually I don't like cringeworthy-humour and often find in chick-lit novels that the heroine is painfully self-deprecating but it wasn't the case here, I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.

I'd recommend this as the ideal summer read whether you are heading off on holiday, going away for a family wedding or just dodging the rain at home (as I was). I'll definitely read more by Allie Spencer and I'm hoping that this book has set me up for a great summer of reading!
