Love at the Little Wedding Shop by the Sea St Aidan: a cosy Cornish village where friendships are made for life and it’s always cocktail hour somewhere...
Return to your favourite little wedding shop by the sea for love,laughter and a romance to sweep you off your feet!It’s the most romantic day of the year but the girls aren’t just gearing up for Valentine’s Day and a busy wedding season ahead, it’s also the 10 year anniversary of their beloved shop!Jess is planning the party of the decade and with the champagne and cocktails flowing, sparks are going to fly... and not just from the fireworks display.
What did I think about it...
The wedding planners of The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea approach their busy wedding season with lively enthusiasm, especially as they are celebrating their tenth anniversary. The celebrations party is a huge success and everyone seems to be having a good time but as with as with life, not everything is going to run smoothly.
Milla is newly arrived back in St Aidan, a place she grew up in, but her return is marred by some pretty dastardly goings on between her best friend and business partner, Phoebe, and her now ex-fiancé, Ben. Whilst Milla’s back story is somewhat sad, she does have bag loads of personality and a penchant for getting into difficulty, however, her self esteem has taken something of a battering and through the course of this lovely ‘feel good’ story we see Milla grow in confidence. Her role as wedding planner gets her into all sorts of odd situations but it is her connection with the handsome and charismatic Nic where the story really comes alive.
The whole complex world of wedding planning is done really well, from the cakes, to the dress, the wedding fairs and venues, it’s all a mysterious minefield which, to be fair, causes Milla a whole heap of trouble, but it's all done with great good humour and the author has a lovely way of bringing everything together in a lively way.
I haven't read any of the previous books four books in this series and whilst it would probably have been helpful to know a little more about some of the characters, overall I read this quite comfortably as a standalone. I loved the fun aspect of the story, along with a few sad bits, the bright and cheery book cover, and the rather sweet picture of the dog, the importance of which you'll have to find out by reading Love at the Little Wedding Shop for yourself😊
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.
