It’s Christmas at The Cornish Confetti Agency!
When Lexie Harrington is asked to choreograph Phoebe and Sam’s Christmas-themed wedding, she can’t wait to create the perfect winter wonderland – elegantly dressed fir trees, glossy garlands of holly and mistletoe, baskets of yule logs and pine cones, and the mouth-watering fragrance of gingerbread, cinnamon sticks and warm mulled wine floating through the air.
With handsome wedding columnist-cum-fledgling scriptwriter Theo Barker at her side, she’s confident that she can create the perfect festive ambience the bride and groom have been dreaming of since their engagement in the Swiss Alps; no rampant hosepipes, no mechanical mice, no confetti-filled hairdryers.
But this is The Cornish Confetti Agency, and the words ‘plain-sailing’ and ‘hassle-free’ do not feature in the promotional brochure. So, when a much-loved portrait of the groom’s father is adorned with pirate eye-patches and black plastic moustaches, and his expensive cologne is switched for toilet cleaner, Lexie and Theo must once again don their metaphorical deerstalkers and unravel the mystery before the wedding dissolves into Christmas-themed chaos and calamity.
A perfect Christmas wedding?
Is there such a thing for The Cornish Confetti Agency?

When things start to go wrong, Lexie and Theo have to done their deerstalkers and turn detective once again but can they work it all out in time to save the day?
This is the third book in this series but an easy stand-alone read. I’m a big fan of this author, but just haven’t been able to find space in my schedule to review the previous two. However, this one made up for it all – it’s a superb read! A bit of a mystery, a helping of romance, a great big dollop of fun and laughter all add up to great enjoyment and I really loved everything about it. There are some great ideas for those who want to come up with some family activities for the festive season. Great characters, so much going on and an ending which sparkled! A truly lovely Christmas novel, earning 4.5*.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy and to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.

Daisy James loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. She especially likes to create sunshine-filled settings in exotic locations – the Caribbean, Tuscany, Cornwall, Provence – so she can spend her time envisioning her characters enjoying the fabulous scenery and sampling the local food and drink.
When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea – china plates and teacups are a must.
