Escape to Cornwall with this uplifting and feel good standalone novel from the bestselling author of The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea
There’s nothing more magical than a winter wonderland wedding but when photographer Holly North returns to the cosy village of St Aidan she’s determined to avoid romance and the festive season full stop. She’s doing one small favour for a friend’s wedding and then her plans involve diving under her duvet and avoiding any sign of Christmas cheer – and gorgeous but insufferable Rory Sanderson – for the rest of December!
That is until Christmas arrives at Brides by the Sea, Cornwall’s enchanting and most adorable little wedding shop. The champagne is on ice while mistletoe hangs from every nook and Holly’s friends at the shop are determined she’ll live up to her festive name.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and romance is most definitely in the crisp winter air with promises, proposals and Christmas kisses aplenty…
Holly arrives back at St Aidan in style, in fact, it had me chuckling from the first page, …and the adorable Holly just got more entertaining as the pages flew by.
However, Holly is hiding heartbreak and on a mission to ignore Christmas as much as possible. She plans to do the photography for a friends wedding, then disappear under the duvet until New Year. However, with one friend on holiday and another heavily pregnant, Holly is quickly absorbed into the daily running of the wedding shop and all its demanding customers.
Although she is a food photographer, Holly finds herself thrown into the world of wedding photography and she discovers that she is rather good at it. However Jules, St Aiden’s resident photographer has a critical eye, and Holly feels the pressure.
There is more chaos when an old school friend, Rory, finds himself waist deep in nappies and Frozen for the first time in his life. His antics are hilarious and Holly finds that he can still make her blush!
Such a charming story with believable characters and just the right amount of humour and romance. A must for anyone who is planning a wedding or just loves going to them!
