A Wedding At Christmas By Chrissie Manby

This title will be released on November 19, 2015.

 

What comes to mind when you picture a wedding at Christmas? A gorgeous white dress accessorised with a thick velvet cape… bridesmaids in red velvet too? An arch of Christmas greenery: holly and ivy and boughs of fir. Candles and fairy lights. Snow!

Chelsea Benson has just twelve weeks to organise her perfect winter wedding. Her family and friends pitch in to help, but sisterly squabbling, issues with money and an Ice-Queen mother-in-law soon threaten Chelsea’s plans for her big day. And that’s without the firework fiasco…

Rescuing Chelsea’s dream of a proper family wedding might just take all the magic of Christmas..

My Thoughts:

I loved catching up with the Benson family again, there are lots of laughs in this book but also some sad times. I felt rather Christmassy reading this book as it is now not too long till Christmas, I loved the fact the story centred around Chelsea and how she has to cope with his family and his late wife’s family, I did really feel for her at some points. I love Jack and Lily’s relationship and how much mischief they can get in to when they are together. All in all a brilliant Christmas read.

Bride without a Groom By Amy Lynch

Bride without a Groom By Amy Lynch

Single, coupled-up or married, this laugh-out-loud summer read is the perfect anecdote for the wedding season!

Rebecca has chosen the most luscious, five tiered, wedding cake. The engagement ring that she has selected is celebrity inspired. The wedding singer is on speed dial. He doesn’t usually do Michael Bolton, but as it’s for a first dance he’ll make an exception. Father Maguire is checking dates for the parish church as we speak. The deposit on the white sand honeymoon is paid for in full on Barry’s card. She has fallen for an ivory lace couture gown that is to die for. The down payment may require her to sell a left kidney, but it will be worth it. Isn’t that why you have two?

There’s one teeny tiny problem. It’s nothing, really. No need to panic! It’s just that Barry has yet to propose. Says he’s not ready! He can be a bit of a kill joy that way. It’s time to face the harsh reality – Rebecca is a bride without a groom!

My Thoughts:

This is such a funny read, I couldn’t stop laughing. I loved Rebecca as she is likeable but really funny too. This is a nice easy read that you can just pick up and put down. I would recommend it as a holiday read, I got engaged to my partner at Christmas and I know I would definitely not be anything like Rebecca, even though it was funny to see what she gets up to, I look forward to a quiet and intimate wedding but I did really enjoy this book.

For Better, For Worse By Carole Matthews

For Better, For Worse By Carole Matthews

For-Better-For-Worse_250x379Josie Flynn is in New York for the wedding of her American cousin Martha. Having just been through a messy divorce, she isn’t really in the wedding spirit, especially when she thinks Martha is about to marry the wrong man – and Josie isn’t afraid to tell her so.

Which is all very noble – until Josie meets Matt Jarvis and appears to be about to fall for the wrong man herself. Add to that the return of her ex-husband, an old flame and a dubious boyband and it looks like it’s going to be quite a wedding…

My Thoughts:

I absolutely love Carole Matthews books. She is one of my favourite authors and I cannot get enough of her books. This book had me laughing on nearly every page it literally is that good. Once I started this book I found it very hard to put down. I must of read it in a day and a half. I loved the storyline and the characters were brilliant as they always are in Carole’s books. I would strongly recommend anyone who has never read any of her books to give at least one a try, I just know you will fall in love. Im looking forward to reading Carole Matthews next book.
