I found this book a great light read for holidays or a lazy sunday.
another easy summer read
Double Wedding was a bit of a disappointment to me. The first thing I discovered is that I like chick-lit best when the story is about a girl looking for love, not when it's about couples that are already formed. The storyline wasn't bad however, which is why I kept reading, even though there were moments I had no idea where all of this was going. Pages and pages of rambling bickering start to get old after a few chapters, making the 600 pages entirely too long. I should also add that about half ...more

Enjoyable - even from someone who is not into weddings and wedding themed stories! Patricia Scanlans books are always light and readable and the Irish slang always gives me a bit of a laugh. All the "wagons" and "ones" and being in a type of "humor" - very colorful!
I actually couldn't stand Carol through most of this, I hate to admit I was hoping things would go bad for her at the end because she was such an awful person. Jessie is written as virtually a saint, maybe too good to be true, as was

Pushy and a bit self-centered Carol gets her best (and only) friend Jessica talked into doing a double wedding, although both parties have quite a different idea of what an ideal wedding should be like. But Carol is too afraid her boyfriend Gary might chicken out on her if she can get him up the aisle as fast as possible.

Nice Irish chick-lit, where a couple of incidents take place before the final big day arrives - which of course also presents some surprises. Of course Jessy is the good girl in

I have a bit of a soft spot for irish chick lit. The characters are usually very down to earth with a freshness about them. This was rather similiar to Marilyn Keyes with its theme of alcoholism but not quite as funny or insightfull. Having said that this was a very pleasent read, I zipped through it, it was written in a very straightforward style and I personally liked the few little religious touches.

Listened to this as an audio book. It was well read and some parts of the book were very good.... But it just seed to go on and on. I persevered but not entirely sure it was worth the effort.
