The Winter Wedding - by Abby Clements

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Hazel never set out to be a wedding planner. She was just helping her stressed sister Lila with cakes and d├ęcor for her big day. But when Lila and Ollie's summer ceremony is a runaway success, with guests raving about the food and styling at the pretty venue, word about Hazel's expertise soon spreads.

But Hazel's clients expect the very best - she's promised lawyers Gemma and Eliot a snow-covered castle in the Scottish Highlands, and laidback couple Josh and Sarah a bohemian beach wedding in a Caribbean paradise. But as weather, in-laws and wilful brides conspire against her, can Hazel get two very different couples to walk up two very different aisles to say 'I do'? And will she find her own happy ending if she does?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

The Winter Wedding is the second book by Abby Clements I have read and I enjoyed every single second of it, I was hooked!

It follows the story of Hazel, who suddenly sees herself plan her twin sister Lila’s wedding. After it being a big success, she gets busy planning more weddings and it changes something in her. She realiszes what she enjoyes in life and what she really wants, that has an impact of course on her current job. Her boss there is terrible! The only upside there is her colleague Josh, they spend a lot of time together.

Through planning Lila’s wedding we learn a lot about their childhood and their past, also about their relationship and of course the relationship to their parents and brother Ben. Ben gets his story covere das well and it brings and extra mystery into it all.

Then there is Hazel’s own love life. Is she interested in Josh and what about her best friend Sam?! I was eagerly following that part oft he story, because I just felt that she had a special connection to one oft he man. Abby kept us guessing quiet long.

The characters are all just great and Hazel ist he perfect main chracter in my eyes. I loved following her story and it all came across so true and authentic. I also really adored the way they all interacted with each other, a great group of characters, all oft hem unique and special.

This wonderful story has it all: amazing characters, a beautiful storyline, love, family, passion, romance and friendship. Abby’s writing is vivid, fresh and it makes you dive into the story immediately.

Hazel: Ashely Olsen
