My Review: This is the first book in this series that I’ve read and while I enjoyed it I think I would have got a lot more from it had I read the previous books first. If you’re interested in the series I would suggest starting at the beginning.
I found the story took a while to get going but I think that may be because I wasn’t familiar with the characters as once I became more familiar with them and their various roles, the story became easier to follow. There’s a lot of detail and discussion about weddings as you would expect and I feel now that I know a lot of the pitfalls of weddings and a few of the things that can go wrong.
I wasn’t sure about Milla or Nic at the beginning and it took time for me to warm to them. It’s not that I didn’t like Nic but I found him frustrating, he seemed to want to plan a wedding but not make any decisions about it. However the star of the show for me has to be the location. The Cornish coast, the beaches and the sea and also the many wedding venue options that were visited were amazing. The descriptions of walking on the beach in the breezy sunshine made me want to head off there immediately.
I think if you’ve read the previous books you’ll enjoy this one but if you’ve not I would suggest starting with book one. It’s definitely an immersive experience of weddings, I just feel I would have preferred some previous knowledge of the characters.
About the author:
I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines, and lots of heart. Writing is fab, because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. I live in a cottage up a mountain road in Derbyshire, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos. Happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things french. When I’m not on facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be walking, or gardening. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.
