Two Weddings and a Baby - by Scarlett Bailey

Original Cover
My own copy
 The blurb:

Tamsyn Thorne has not been back to her home town of Poldore for five long years.

But now her brother, Ruan, is about to get married and she has no excuses left.

Her plans to arrive in Cornwall looking chic and successful are dashed when a huge storm turns her from fashion goddess to a drowned rat. Worse, she ends up insulting the local hunky vicar – and then finds a tiny baby abandoned in his churchyard…

My Opinion:

When this beauty arrived at my doorstep, I was screaming and jumping around. Ever since I read Just For Christmas (Alex and Ruan’s story) I wanted to go back to Poldore, a lovely and sweet little town in Cornwall.
Yay and here we are!

This time the story is focused on Tamsyn Thorne, Ruan’s younger sister. Something happened between them in the past and they are not talking.

Tamsyn is now working in Paris, as a fashion designer and she kind of has a “Friends with benefits” relationship to her boss. Well, Ruan and Alex are happier than ever and they are getting married, the perfect opportunity for Tamsyn to come back, she didn’t see it that way at the time, but the story developed…

When she founds a baby abandoned in a churchyard, her love changed. I loved the way she was caring for that little girl. She showed a new side to the fashion and career driven woman. A storm hits the village and pushes them all closer together, helping each other and trying everything to make the wedding still possible. It also brought Jed, the vicar, and Tamsyn closer together. Their chemistry was something special from the start. The two of them being very different, with different believes made it difficult for them to see the truth. However, the most important thing was for them to see in the same direction concerning love. Well, let’s just say it was an interesting journey of passion, feelings, the past and finding their true self.

Jed was a great character, not a typical vicar and very very gorgeous. I think he’s perfect for Tamsyn… new book boyfriend <3

Well, the thing I enjoyed most about the book was reading about Alex and Ruan again. I loved their story and it found a way to continue in this one. Their feelings for each other come through again and Alex and Tamsyn got on so well, I was so happy about that. When the storm destroyed the wedding dress, Tamsyn made her one <3. And there was still the thing between Ruan and his sister, which needed clarification. Let me just say that it had something to do with their past and a woman.
Oh and Buoy was there again too, awwww. I’m not a dog’s person, but I love this dog.

Oh and what about the second wedding? Well, just read it to find out!

This book is about family, love, friendship, a community sticking together overcoming different obstacles. Full of humour, surprises, drama and emotions, the perfect mixture, describe in the most brilliant way. It’s a masterpiece, you’ve done a marvellous job Scarlet!
