Book Details from Goodreads

GSxwUgN76MO3Ruth can’t quite believe she’s managed to snag The One but when he proposes, she can finally accept that she’s found her happily ever after. But when Ruth finds herself booking her dream church for just six weeks away, she starts to panic. You can’t plan a whole wedding at such short notice. Can you?

Trina has only just walked down the aisle, but she’s already starting to question whether they can make their marriage work. Will they survive the honeymoon period, or have they just made a very big – and very expensive – mistake?

Three women. Three weddings. But who will say I do – and who will say I don’t?




Really Funny Rom-Com, full of quirky characters   5startr

This is the second romantic comedy by Jennifer Joyce (left) which I’ve absolutely loved. This one is so different to the first (The Little Bed and Breakfast by the Sea), although both are jam-packed with fun and laughter!

I’ve just finished reading this novel and have successfully managed not to choke on my morning toast (close thing) or spill my coffee .. well, as long as several splutters don’t count. It’s tempting to just list the hilarious highlights but no, that would do you out of the whole amazingly funny experience!

This story follows three brides, intertwined in one way or another and each with very different ideas of what makes a perfect wedding. The array of characters are fantastic – easily the quirkiest, funniest and yet so true-to-life that I have ever come across in a rom-com. I can practically guarantee that you will recognise at least one of these hiding among your circle of friends and acquaintances. I was surprised to find one of my favourite sayings in there too – that was a bit of a shock!

With three women to follow, each with separate chapters, this is a book which is so easy to read. Following a time span, the writing flows smoothly from one person to another and I was astonished to realise I had reach 94%. I almost wish I could just be starting it now, then I’d get to enjoy it all over again. However, the images conjured up in this one will stay with me – and keep me giggling, no doubt at inopportune moments – for a long time.

I can happily recommend this fabulous book to everyone .. however, if you are involved in wedding preparations in any capacity, then it’s a must-read! A full, flashing five gold stars with bells – or should that be pink feathers – and whistles attached from me.

I received an arc from the author but this had no bearing on my review.
