You are invited to the wedding of the year!
Snow is falling thick and fast outside the Gingerbread Café and inside, its owner Lily is planning the wedding of the year. Her wedding! She never dreamt it would happen, but this Christmas, she’ll be marrying the man of her dreams – in a Christmas-card-perfect ceremony!
The gingerbread is baking, the dress is fitted and the mistletoe’s in place – for once, everything’s going to plan. That is until her mother-in-law arrives… Suddenly, Lily’s famous cool is being tested like never before and her dream wedding is crumbling before her eyes.
In the blink of a fairylight, the Gingerbread Café has been thrown into chaos! Lily thought she had this wedding wrapped up, but with so much to do before she says ‘I do’, can Lily get to the church on time – and make this Christmas sparkle after all?
Ok where to start. Firstly thank you to Chicks That Read for letting me take part in this blog tour. I was more than thrilled when this book arrived in my inbox.
I can’t believe that only this time last year I was reviewing the first book in this series. At that point I had only had my blog a few months and was still getting to grips with blogging and tours and such like. I am thrilled a year later to be reviewing the Christmas Wedding at the Gingerbread Cafe.
Lil and Damon are sweet as ever. If you think these two were like lovesick puppies in the rest of the series wait til you see them in the run up to the wedding. They really are that dream couple.
Charlie bear is so sweet and I only wish we could see more of her. Her wedding surprise had me in tears it was beautiful.
Damons mum, Olivia, showed up being a bit of a meddler. She clearly wanted to drive a wedge between Damon and Lil and I hated her for it. Poor Lil didn’t know what to do for the best. She didn’t want to upset Damon but she also didn’t want Olivia to push her around. Deep down I think Olivia is old woman missing her only son.
Lil’s parents were great. It was odd to see them fitting in to Ashford so easliy as they haven’t been in the story at all since they have been away. Lil’s Mamma really did make me laugh with her clumsiness.
the girls really were the best friends that Lil could ask for and not only that she was a great friend to them. Letting Cece go when she needed to no matter how much she might have wanted her there.
The wedding was beautiful and the dress, my oh my the dress. I can’t even describe how much I loved that dress.
I have a warm fuzzy Christmas feeling inside now. I really can’t wait to spend Christmas with my loved ones just like these lot.
