She goes on several dates, one worse than the other without any luck. She eventually find [...]

    2. This is technically 3.5 stars. This is my second Jennifer Joyce. I loved The beginner's guide to salad a lot more than this but this book was a good read nonetheless! I loved the initial dating disasters and man was it funny - I snorted out laughing with snappy one liners and sarcastic quips in more than one ocassion. What i Do have a problem with is convoluted lies used a plot device and this book from the intermission point had a lot of them and it sort of took the shine away from what could h [...]

    3. 4.5The Wedding Date is a fab romantic comedy – quick-witted, refreshing and a purely fun read. Delilah (cue bursting into Plain White T’s song) is not over her ex, Ben, no matter how much she tries to convince everyone otherwise. But when she’s invited to an old friend’s wedding and discovers Ben will be attending, very much loved up with someone else, she’s desperate to prove just how much she’s moved on. The only trouble is, she doesn’t have a plus one, but having lied (one of ma [...]

    4. Review first posted on my blog: 'A Spoonful of Happy Endings': spoonfulofhappyendingsspoTwenty-something Delilah James can't get her ex-boyfriend Ben out of her head and really wants to get him back. However, when she discovers he has already moved on by getting engaged to someone else, Delilah is determined to prove to the world that she has forgotten all about Ben as well. She needs to find a handsome date to a friend's wedding where Ben will be the best man, and luckily her two best friends R [...]

    5. 4.5 StarsThe Wedding Date is another really enjoyable and entertaining story by Jennifer Joyce. If you don't like large webs of lies then this may not be the story for you, as it did get a bit confusing at one point, trying to remember who was aware of which lies that Delilah couldn't help but tell. It all started with one small omission of fact, where Delilah implies she has got over her ex of 9 months and is also moving on and dating again. And somehow she is persuaded to bring the new man as [...]

    6. *3.5 StarsFor more reviews like this, check out my blog, Musings of Madjy.This was a cute story that reminded me a lot of stories by Sophie Kinsella and Lindsey Kelk. Lighthearted and funny, with a relatable heroine that you can't help but like. The storytelling first-person perspective was quirky and felt like you were listening to a friend, which isn't your usual style for a romance and added something fun. As did the sprinkling of pop culture references (Westlife, McFly/McBusted, and Dawson's [...]

    7. The Wedding Date by Jennifer Joyce is hilariously sweet. A young woman is stuck living with her parents not because she hasn't tried planning to move out on her own. In fact, she has tried several timesy with each plan failing on her. But Jennifer Joyce has created a spunky tough female who doesn't give upeven when things look bad. From falling down on one's face with a scrapped knee to getting to late work because of a hangover to lying about being muggedd then to have the only man she thought [...]

    8. I enjoyed this, a simple chick lit story where Delilah needs a date to show off at her friend's wedding in order to prove she's over the ex boyfriend who will be there.I loved the friendship she has with best friends Lauren and Ryan and the ways they try to help her out with her wedding problem of needing a date. Though the storyline itself has been done before this still had its unique style and twists to keep it fresh.Starting each chapter with a text conversation between characters was differ [...]

    9. The Wedding Date by Jennifer Joyce was a lighthearted funny read. It is the first book that i have read by Jennifer Joyce and i was not disappointed.I really enjoyed all the Characters of the book, especially Delilah. She was easy to love and relatable.I found The Wedding Date to be thoroughly enjoyable. It was a light hearted romantic comedy that held my interest until the very end. Another great book by Carina UK who i was lucky enough to receive a copy from via Netgalley in exchange for an ho [...]

    10. The Wedding Date is the first of Jennifer Joyce's books that I have read. It proved to be a lovely easy read full of laugh out loud moments providing the reader with a feel good atmosphere. This book is definitely a romantic comedy as the balance between the humour and love is nicely achieved. I hate using the term chick lit but this book does fall into that category and to be honest there really is nothing wrong with that. Sometimes you just needed that nice easy read which will take your mind [...]

    11. The Wedding Date was recommended to me by a friend and I'm so thankful for that! Such a fun, light read about dating, jealousy, friendship and family that anyone can relate to if they're interested. While it's basically a story we've all heard before, I still think this is a great book to bring on your next vacation.

    12. This book was soooo adorable. I didn't want to put it down. It's cute and sweet and I did cringe at some of Delilah's decisions but it's what made the story interesting. I want to know what happened with Vincent though??? Why was that date so bad. Anyways the book was still cute and adorable.

    13. Ah, weddings! They can be stressful can’t they? I mean, you need to ensure you’re looking your best, preened to perfection from head to toe with every single thing organised. Plus there is the added stress of invitations. Without those, nobody would turn up, obviously, but then you have to painstakingly sit there and work out who you’re going to the wedding with…… Oh, no, sorry, I’m not on about the stresses for the bride!! The bride will be with her husband! I was on about who would [...]

    14. Originally posted on This Chick Reads *Copy provided by publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review* Jennifer Joyce is the author of 5 works, 4 of which (including this one) I've read and greatly enjoyed. Her books are light, fun and giggle inducing and I was pretty sure The Wedding Date would be no exception. However, I have to admit despite being familiar with Jennifer's writing, I honestly didn't expect to enjoy this book so much. Even if I had any expectations, it definitely exc [...]

    15. I liked the sound of the book so very much, and as it is by Jennifer Joyce, I was sure that I am for a treat - I read her "The Mince Pie Mix - Up" last year and enjoyed it totally, and I can remember that Jennifer's writing style was exceptionally funny and warm, so without hesitation I hit the "Request" button and was looking forward to starting reading this novel.The idea of the plot is simple, but it is often the simplest things that works best, right? So Delilah claims she's over her ex - bo [...]

    16. Originally posted on: albainbookland/2016/04Before picking this book, I had already read some of Jennifer Joyce's previous work so I knew that I was in for a fun lighthearted book. And I was not wrong, The Wedding Date certainly delivers what it promises: lots of laughs, quite a big web of lies with hilarious consequences, a good pinch of romance and best friends who are worth their weight in gold. The story revolves around Delilah (I know what you are thinking, "hey there Delilah" and all that, [...]

    17. I absolutely cracked up reading about poor Delilah James and her dating woes because I've been there and done that. I've done the disastrous set-ups and the even more disastrous online dating. (Here's a hint : when someone says they have an "athletic build" and a "competitive nature," they may be under the impression that actually eating all-you-can-eat at a buffet is a sport and a man claiming to be 5'7" is quite likely to be 5'4".) Luckily for me, I stumbled on Tom and 10+ years and one awes [...]

    18. I don’t think I need to remind you how much I loved A beginners guide to salad (see gush here) and so I was very excited to read this. Although it didn’t make quite the impact A Beginners Guide did, I really enjoyed it. We meet Delilah James, aged twenty four, who, as you see above, has six months to find a date for her friend’s wedding. Fairly early on in the book I remembered Ms. Joyce’s easy, warm style of writing and smile out loud comedy and I was happy out.In fact, some of the come [...]

    19. *Book provided by the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*I was very excited when I saw Jennifer Joyce had another book to be published. The title f this book sounds great and so does the blurb.The story follows Delilah, who is still heartbroken over Ben. He has long moved in though, he is actually about to propose to his new girlfriend, they are stating a family. When Delilah is invited to a wedding, where Ben will definitely be there, she is determined tontake a date with h [...]

    20. Around 3.5 stars. This book was a roller-coaster. At the beginning I didn't like it much because it's told in a first person PoV and the main character, Delilah, is constantly breaking the fourth wall with comments like "let me tell you dear reader" or "more on this later" Thankfully the annoying behaviour doesn't last long. Delilah got dumped by the love of her life nine months ago and now has to see him again for her friend's wedding. Little does she know that Ben-the-Ex has not only moved on [...]

    21. Delilah is twenty four and having a horrific time . She was dumped by the man she thought she loved -Ben- nine months before. Delilah still hoped he would come back to her but actually he is already engaged to another woman who is pregnant by him. So Delilah has a friend named Francesca that she has been friends with since the were six, They weren’t really that close any more but stayed in contact with each other. Francesca was marrying Jeremy and Francesca wanted to let Delilah know Ben was t [...]

    22. The way you are introduced to Delilah is great, it's fun and you get a real insight into her character. You didn't instantly know everything about her from the first couple of pages which I quite liked. Her two best friends are also a good addition to the book. As I was reading I felt like I was drawn into their inner circle. I especially loved the text messages that were at start of every chapter they were always fun to read.I thought the plot moved at a good pace there weren't really any slow [...]

    23. Delilah is invited to her friend's wedding and discovers that her ex, Ben, will be there. She then has to find a date for the wedding to show that she has "moved on". The book then follows her sometimes hilarious attempts at finding a date. She tries the local barman, her sister's friend, online dating, a friend of her best friend Ryan - and even Ryan himself, despite his snobbish mother! It is quite a long book and I felt at times, it was too convoluted and could have been shortened a bit - hen [...]

    24. Thanks to the the author and publisher for this advanced copy on netgalley to review honestly.This is a hilarious light-hearted look at the perils of dating and young friendships! I loved the text message headers of the chapters, most were hilarious anecdotes for the chapter ahead, this was a really great idea.I found the main character Delilah sweet and funny but a bit immature (probably because she's a lot younger than myself) and she is still on the path of making mistakes and is truly awful [...]

    25. Light hearted, fun and slightly predictable, the wedding date features a dumped girl, her ghastly ex (though she doesn't quite see that yet), her two best friends and a cast of caricatures in the office (including the hunky chap, obvs)An enjoyable story which kept me interested but was sometimes lacking in vavavvoom. MetLineReader rating 3.5* My thanks to Carina UK for an advance review copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    26. This was a cute story. I liked Deliah and really liked Adam, but there was just nothing spectacular about it. It just kind of went along a predictable path. No exciting twist pair events. It just kind of was. Which is why it took me so long to actually finish its. There was nothing drawing me back in or really compelling me to finish it.**I received a copy from Netgalley Nd the publisher in exchange for a review**

    27. I was give an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest and independent review. Essentially a romantic. comedy about moving on after the end of a relationship. A little bit farcical in places but made me smirk rather than giggle out loud, but then I would never normally choose this genre. After reading lots of serious and quite intense books I felt like some lighthearted relief. So it did the job. 3***

    28. I got an advanced copy from net gallery. This book is full of good friends and humorous situations. This was a fun read and perfect for summertime. It was light hearted and had a great ending. Oh how one little lie can spin out for control
