Delphine is at a wedding when the shocking news comes. Suddenly her life changes for ever.
Delphine has worked hard for her success and she knows she’s got everything she wants. But not everyone agrees. Her opinionated family aren’t convinced that living alone with no plans to ‘settle down’ could possibly make her truly happy, and no one appreciates it when she drops everything, day or night, whenever her boss Conrad calls. Yet Delphine wouldn’t change a thing. And when Conrad makes her a surprise offer, it’s clear that her hard work is going to pay off.
A few short days later, Delphine’s life is unrecognisable. The man who once broke her heart has suddenly reappeared, and a shocking tragedy turns her world on its head.
Delphine must rethink everything that matters to her, and to those around her, and decide, once and for all, if love, family and a little compromise should come before career, security and independence... and if she’s prepared to make that choice.
Delphine seems to have it all, with a perfect job working for the CEO of a successful investment company which takes her to lovely places around the world, and her beautiful home offers her the peace of an independent lifestyle. Delphine is perfectly content, and even though her family would rather see her settled and married, she is in no rush to find 'her Mr Right'. However, fate has a nasty way of intervening and when tragedy strikes at the heart of Delphine's world she is forced to take stock and discover just what is important to her.
Delphine is such a great character, both feisty and determined but with a vulnerable edge which the author brings out with her clever portrayal of the complicated world of corporate business. I enjoyed observing Delphine's story and followed the ups and downs of her life with great interest. Her family made me laugh, they're a great bunch, opinionated and caught up in their own lives and yet they still find time to offer Delphine well intentioned advice which, it must be said, she doesn't always appreciate.
The story portrays the rather vindictive world of business really well and shows again just what it's like to be a woman caught up in a man's world but all credit to the author for not making Delphine into a shrinking violet and allowing her the opportunity to go out there and get what she knew she deserved.
Beautifully written, and with all those subtle nuances of character development that this author does so well, Three Weddings and a Proposal focuses on the vagaries of modern life, and all the obstacles which can challenge even the most stalwart of people, but it's also about finding love, and having the strength of character to know what will work out best in the long term.
Sometimes a book comes along at just the right time and escaping into the lovely world that this author so cleverly creates has been just what I needed over the last couple of day.
