Review of Wedlocked by Bonnie Trachtenberg

Wedlocked opens on Rebecca and Craig’s wedding day, a lavish, no expense spared celebration in a castle.

Normally dubbed as the happiest day of your life, but not for Rebecca. Instead, it is the moment where she realizes she has just made a big mistake. Just as Rebecca drops this bombshell, the author then takes us back through Rebecca’s path from New York to Hollywood and Italy. The descriptions of these places, particularly Italy are so vibrant that you feel you’re really there with the characters. I really enjoyed seeing Rebecca’s life before the wedding as I thought it helped readers get to know Rebecca.

The plot is fast paced and I found it kept me wanting to read more. There are also quite a few surprises that kept me guessing for a while. I particularly liked the way that Rebecca’s family is so central to the plot. Trachtenberg is an engaging writer and makes the reader feel like part of the storyline.

This is a great book with strong, likeable characters and almost like a modern day fairytale. I read this on a cold evening in front of the fire and I just could not put it down. Recommended for romance and chick lit fans.
