Bestseller Lucy Coleman is back in the Cotswolds for the wedding we’ve all been waiting for.
Imogen Tolliman and Gray Adams can’t wait to get married after getting engaged the previous year, when they were stranded by snow in a blizzard.
Now they are busy planning their wedding, but when the date slips six months because Gray is working on a huge film project, it seems like fate that after their snowy start, they will end up getting married at Christmas.
The couple are living in Immi’s grandfather’s picturesque lock-keeper’s cottage at the Aysbury marina in the Cotswolds, which they are renovating to become their forever family home. As well as building work, full-time jobs and wedding planning, Immi is in charge of raising money to build a children’s playground, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of The Santa Ahoy Cruises – her grandfather Tollie’s life work.
With Gray working abroad, Immi is left to cope with everything alone.
When a terrible betrayal is uncovered, the whole community of Aysbury is left reeling and Immi is left wondering if there will be a wedding after all…
Let Lucy Coleman transport you away to an unforgettable Cotswolds Christmas full of romance and laughter, friendship and family and much-loved festive traditions. Perfect for all fans of Trisha Ashley, Holly Martin and Sue Moorcroft.
Fabulously Festive Romance!
If you need a bit of Christmas and romance in your soul – and don’t we all? – then this is one book you really don’t want to miss!
Following on from Christmas at Lock Keeper’s Cottage, Immi and Gray are in the throes of planning their nuptials; not the summer wedding they first intended due to unavoidable circumstances but another winter celebration. With Gray travelling for work constantly, renovations to the cottage underway – and hitting snags – along with Immi’s job and the fund raising incorporating the annual Santa Ahoy cruises and finding a way to celebrate it’s tenth year, wedding planning is turning into yet another chore on her list. And then the unthinkable happens – is it the last straw?
I no sooner began reading this than memories of the first novel came flooding back. I should say, of course, that this is a terrific stand alone read but reading both will definitely enhance your experience. I’ve long been a fan of Lucy Coleman’s; her understanding of the human psyche, putting together a wonderful cast of characters and spinning both into a thoroughly enjoyable story is faultless. I always know I’m in for a good read when I have one of her books on my kindle and this is so delightful – I bought my first Christmas decorations yesterday and I’m definitely in a festive mood now! 5* from me and my full recommendation!
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
