Katy and Ben's friends Abby and "Braindead" are getting married. When Katy agrees to stand in for the mother of the groom, she isn't expecting the bombshell he drops during his speech. Braindead he reveals to all the guests at the reception that Katy once had a one-night stand with her old flame, Mathew, while they were both in other relationships. Mathew's wife, Alison is none too pleased, nor does the pregnant Katy appreciate having her dirty laundry aired in public. Katy and her group of friends try to manage the fallout while another wedding looms on the horizon. Can Braindead be trusted to say the right thing this time, or at least keep his foolish mouth shut?
No-One Ever Has Sex at a Wedding is the fourth book in the "No-one Ever Has Sex..." series by Tracy Bloom. It's a light romantic comedy that follows a group of friends and their complicated, intertwined relationships. In book four, Katy and Ben are expecting another baby, Daniel and Gabriel are head over heels, and Lena and Ian's love is blooming. However, things are not looking good for Mathew, whose wife, Alison, has thrown him out after learning that he slept with Katy while he and Alison were trying for a baby. It is up to his friends to try and help him salvage the situation. We also meet Erica, Braindead's supermodel sister, whose perfect figure and newfound friendship with Daniel drive the ever practical Katy mad with jealousy.
If you haven't read at least some of the previous books and don't know who all these people are, this book will make very little sense to you. Heck, I've read all four books and I still had trouble keeping all the characters straight at times. There's also a lot of switching between different people's points of view, which can get a little confusing. However, if you've come this far with the series you'll probably enjoy this book. There are plenty of laughs and a few tender moments of reflection on love and what makes a good marriage, and a ridiculous, over the top romantic gesture- classic Tracy Bloom. No-One Ever Has Sex at a Wedding is a cheery romantic comedy that will appeal to fans of the series. If you haven't read the earlier books but like the sound of it, try beginning with No-One Ever Has Sex on a Tuesday.
