Review of The Winter Wedding by Abby Clements
They say don't judge a book by it's cover, but I most certainly did with this book because the cover is SO gorgeous!
Hazel never set out to be a wedding planner. She was just helping her stressed sister Lila with cakes and décor for her big day. But when Lila and Ollie's summer ceremony is a runaway success, with guests raving about the food and styling at the pretty venue, word about Hazel's expertise soon spreads.
But Hazel's clients expect the very best - she's promised lawyers Gemma and Eliot a snow-covered castle in the Scottish Highlands, and laidback couple Josh and Sarah a bohemian beach wedding in a Caribbean paradise. But as weather, in-laws and wilful brides conspire against her, can Hazel get two very different couples to walk up two very different aisles to say 'I do'? And will she find her own happy ending if she does?
If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good wedding! And just by looking at the cover of this one, I knew I was going to love it!
This is the first book I have read by this author and it was such an easy book to get into and it had a great mixture of characters.
Hazel and her twin sister Lila live together in London, but when Lila moves in with her fiancé Ollie, Hazel is left with the dilemma of finding a lodger but also how to fill the void of missing her sister. When Lila asks Hazel if she will plan her wedding as she is too busy with her career of being a dancer, Hazel jumps at the chance. Her day job isn’t going anywhere thanks to her boss Emma (who selfishly wants to keep Hazel to herself to do all her dirty work!).
Hazel does such a good job with organising Lila’s wedding that she gets asked to do another two! This is where things become complicated!!
This book is a lovely, heart warming read that has everything you will need for a good read – family, love, romance, friendship and even cake!!. I know a couple of my friends read it in one sitting, it is that easy to get into!
It’s a definite thumbs up from me and one I would recommend for a cold winter’s night with a large cuppa and and even larger bar of chocolate!!
