The Wedding That Changed Everything - by Jennifer Joyce

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Love happens when you least expect it… 
Emily Atkinson stopped believing in fairy tales a long time ago! She’s fed up of dating frogs in order to track down her very own Prince Charming, despite the best efforts of her matchmaking best friend…
But now she’s been invited to the wedding of the year at the enchanting Durban Castle, and perhaps bumping into a knight in shining armour isn’t as far away as she thought!
Will Emily survive the wedding and walk away an unscathed singleton – or finally find her own happily-ever-after?

My Opinion:

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

Emily Atkinson is a history teacher and has had enough of men. She doesn’t want to go on date after date, but her best friend Alice has a different plan. She is also looking for men and Emily’s perfect match.

Alice herself has a boyfriend (Emily’s teacher colleague), but her family doesn’t know. Kevin had to hide several times already and she just can’t tell them, because she knows they won’t approve. When her sister gets married, she takes Emily as her plus one. Kevin is of course not happy with this situation and nor is Emily. It means there will be lots of single men around and Alice will do her best to play cupid.

The wedding takes place at Durban castle, a fabulous location and Jennifer Joyce captured it beautifully. There are lots of activities for the guests and it’s so much fun to read about them and see Emily being part of them. Of course there are several potential love interests there too. Archie and Tom were the most interesting ones and Emily definitely had chemistry with one of them. No I’m not telling you which one… read the book!

The banter between them was great and I liked him as a character. All the characters were very well lined out and had their own story to tell.

The fresh, modern and cute writing was the perfect mixture and the book has wonderful humour. It’s an easy read, with so many fantastic elements. The storyline flows beautifully and has a lot of sparks.
