Say “I do” to Scotland’s wedding of the year!
Wedding bells are finally ringing for Rory and Zoe! But setting a date and saying yes to the dress is a lot more complicated when their mothers are mortal enemies and Rory’s stepfather is a Hollywood star with a death wish.
And if their family’s weren’t complicated enough, their friends are determined to make the bachelor and bachelorette parties ones they will remember forever – or desperately try to forget…
A castle, a cast of thousands, a superstar who’s lost the plot, and an unlikely stripper. Can Rory and Zoe unravel the tangles in time to tie the knot, or is eloping the only answer?
Get your glad rags on and hold onto your hats as it’s time to unleash matrimonial madness!
Wedding Games is a steamy, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, with a guaranteed happy ever after and all your favourite characters from the Kinloch series.

Oh my gosh, this story was probably one of the funniest of the whole series! It was a shorter novella sized story, but I did finish it in one day, almost one sitting. I was even laughing out loud while I was sitting in the chair getting a pedicure. Between the hen night antics, and the stag night craziness, I almost could not stop laughing. I guess I didn’t remember Rory’s friend Charlie being quite as hilarious as he was in this story, but oh my gosh, sooooo funny what he added to the wedding as the best man. Honestly all the characters were in rare form with the jokes and craziness. There was the eccentric Hollywood star Brad who had married Rory’s mom, who did both help out with the tension between Rory and Zoe’s moms, but also created a bit of an issue with going out into nature with Zoe’s dad and getting lost/stuck, and then there was his speech/turn as the person in charge of all the wedding speeches. Zoe’s mom and Morag got up to quite a bit of craziness whenever they’d start drinking.
I could go on and on, but really if you like to laugh, this is the book for you. Some funny British vs. American term jokes, like a spotted dick line or two. It was also good to maybe get a tiny peek at the characters that I think make up the author’s next series.
Loved this “ending” to this series!
