9780006531760: Amanda's Wedding

A deliciously warm and hilarious romp of a novel set in twenty-something heartland. Amanda's old schoolfriends can't believe it when the social-climbing queen of preen, Satan's very own PR girl, pulls off the ultimate publicity stunt in getting herself engaged to a Scottish laird. Who cares that Fraser McConnald has worn the same pair of Converse trainers for the last three years and that his castle is a pile of rubble with one calor gas heater - she'll be titled! Something Must Be Done. Gentle, decent Fraser is clearly ignorant of her wiles, and Mel and Fran, still smarting from the memory of all the mean things Amanda put them through in their days at Portmount Comprehensive, set out to sabotage this mismatch of the century. So between fighting off the attentions of a love-crazed accountant, keeping Fran's deadly manoeuvres with the opposite sex under control and trying to win her own war of love with the elusive but gorgeous Alex, Mel finds herself attending a wild Scottish stag night, a hen night from hell, and preparing for a wedding that's everything you'd wish on your worst enemy.

About the Author:

Jenny Colgan is Scottish born and bred, but currently lives and works in London, where, for the last few years, she has worked as a stand up comedienne in Notting Hill and the West End, writing her own material.

From AudioFile:

When snooty rich girl Amanda tells 20-something Melanie and her buddy Fran that she's marrying Frasier McConnel, laird of a run-down Scottish castle and an extremely sweet man, they know they must prevent the wedding. A series of barbed encounters, many of them drunken, ensues as Melanie, Fran, and Frasier's brother, Angus, attempt to forestall the nuptials. Tanya Eby reads in a high, squeaky, little-girl voice that is annoying, but not necessarily out of character. The men all have deep, gravelly voices, Scots included; the women are difficult to differentiate. Most amazing are the switches from smooth narrative to stilted phrasing complete with halts in unnatural places, which complement the inarticulate dialogue. Aside from the foul language and sharp British humor, the story is a predictable romance packed with humiliation, cruel humor, and a happy ending.
