The Wedding Date
One little white lie.
When Samantha Jenkins is asked to be the maid of honour at her best friend’s wedding, she couldn’t be happier. There are just three problems…
1) Sam’s ex-boyfriend, Liam, will be the best man.
2) His new girlfriend is pregnant.
3) Sam might have told people she has a new man when she doesn’t (see points 1 and 2 above)
So, Sam does the ...more

The drinks are green. I’m never quite sure that anything I eat or drink should be green. Apart from M&Ms.
She giggles in what I can only describe as a flirtatious manner and I could swear she’s got a bum wiggle going on as she heads back towards the front door. Bum wiggles should be banned for all mothers, at least when their daughters are there. Particularly if the wiggle is for the benefit of their daughters’ boyfriends. Honestly, it’s indecent, even if he isn’t a proper ...more
Ok there are differences between the film and the book as you would hope being completely different but there was that sense of familiarity with the thoughts that Sam was having throughout.
Putting all that to one ...more
The story follows Samantha (or Sam, but definitely not Sammy!) who has been asked to be the made of honour at her best friends wedding. The only problem is, the best ...more
I have to admit that at first, I was a little bit wary about the concept of this book. I mean, we have all seen the film ‘The Wedding Date’ with Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney, right? Plus, having read multiple books with a wedding date at the forefront of its storyline, I couldn’t help but wonder what was going to be different about Zara Stoneley’s interpretation of the theme seeing as it has been done multiple ...more
Well, it was a valiant effort, and I made it to 62% before I threw my Kindle across the room and finally accepted defeat.

The writing is more like a journal entry than an actual point of view. There's not much to describe the characters, the views or what they were wearing. I only remember kilt. Sam, the MC kept on and on about knees. And there I was thinking, was the kilt short? I mean, the guy can get a kilt that cover his knees right? And they do wear long socks right?
The premise was interesting. Sam got dumped. She had to attend a wedding as the best ...more
I absolutely loved the story from start to finish, thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all of the characters and I completely fell in love with Jake and the adorable cute Harry.
Given the concept of the story, I was worried that it would be predictable and I was intrigued to see how it would all play out. However I need not have been worried as the story was in no way predictable at all. The author ...more
This was a laugh a minute read and kept me turning the pages! I love Zara Stoneley books but this was by far her best yet. I totally related to main character Sam and all her dilemmas and confidence issues... and what can I say about the stunning hero? It really was full of fun, softer romantic moments, a few sizzling hot ones and a gorgeous pooch called Harry! Highly recommended!
I adored this novel. I laughed from the first to the last page (there is a scene with horses that is particularly hilarious) and I loved all the characters, or at least the good ones. I really liked the character of Sam. She is loyal, funny, a good friend, and ...more
Not asking much, am I (ahem!)
Well, I’ve ...more

I've really enjoyed this entertaining, lovely story that has a lot of giggling provoking scenes that kept me engaged from start to end.
Sam is a single girl who has to take part to her best friend's wedding celebration in the Scottish Highlands.She has to spend seven days with all her friends and family but she doesn't want their pity because her ex boyfriend and his new girlfriend are among the guests too so she hires an actor as her new boyfriend.
Jack easily succeds charming every woman in the
This book was a total delight and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
The way that Sam and Jake make this pretend boyfriend thing work, is just charming, it really is. On top of that, Jake has a really cute (but slightly naughty!) dog, just to add to the picture. And ...more
Born in a small village in the UK, she wanted to be a female James Herriot, a spy, or an author when she grew up. After many (many) years, and many different jobs, her dream of writing a bestseller came true.
She writes about friendship, dreams, love, and happy ever afters, and hopes that her tales make you laugh a lot, cry a ...more
