The Blurb
Hazel never set out to be a wedding planner. She was just helping her stressed sister Lila with cakes and décor 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’?

The Review
The Winter Wedding was recommended to me by my work colleague, Gemma, and who can say no to a Christmas read, especially in December?

Twins, Hazel and Lila, lead separate lives – Lila a dancer and Hazel a wannabe set designer. Things take an unexpected turn when Hazel decides she wants to quit her job and become a wedding planner – she’s already planned a few, what could possibly go wrong?

During the novel their seemed to be more of a focus on Hazel and her wedding planning business, plus her personal life. She planned a variety of spectacular weddings for her sister Lila and her friend Gemma and Eliot. Given that she had great comments and delivered some great things, I should probably hire Hazel to plan mine!

Although she was great at planning a wedding, she wasn’t very good at controlling her emotions, especially love. I did think she should either have made her mind up or remained single – that girl couldn’t decide!

Amber, Hazel’s flatmate, was a nice addition and I think she was needed to keep Hazel sane and occupied. Plus, having a flatmate that can bake yummy cakes and sweet treats is always a good thing!

The book in a nutshell… perfect for wedding fans who love a bit of romance!
