It’s a nice day for a, white wedding…
Actually, it isn’t which is fine because it isn’t snowing…yet. Although there is a wedding, and you’re all invited! I am so excited to be dusting off my wedding hat today for my stop on Emily Harvale’s latest blog tour. Huge thanks to RaRaResources for the blog tour invite and ARC, here is my review of ‘A Wedding on Lily Pond Lane’:
The Angel Bell is ringing for Mia and Jet’s Big Day – but will the Wedding of the Year go without a hitch?
Every bride wants the perfect wedding and Mia Ward is no exception. But she is the only bride in Little Pondale and everyone in the village has ideas for her Big Day. Drowning in suggestions, Mia needs some help.
When she bumps into childhood friend, Breanna Wright on a shopping trip to London, Mia’s convinced it’s Fate. Breanna’s only ambition was to be a wedding planner with her own business, The Wright Wedding … so Mia doesn’t hesitate.
Breanna’s now got three months to plan a wedding where the sky’s the limit, budget-wise. She should be over the moon. Especially as she’ll get a chance to see old friends again, including her first love. There’s just one tiny hitch … Breanna doesn’t have a wedding-planning business.
She should tell Mia there has been a slight mistake, but as usual Breanna’s life isn’t running smoothly and she could really use a break. And when you’ve dreamt about planning weddings all your life, how difficult can it be?
Will this be the chance Breanna’s longed for? Or will Mia’s Dream Wedding be Breanna’s biggest disaster yet?
What does TWG think?
Love is in the air, do do do do doooooooo!!!
It wasn’t that long ago that we visited Mia, Jet, Ella, Gill, and the rest of the gang in Little Pondale, and now we are back for a wedding!! I do love a good wedding, do you?
This latest treat from Emily Harvale IS part of a series and can be read fine on its own. However like I say everytime, I highly recommend reading the books in order so that you can appreciate just how the characters got to where they are now.
If you have already dipped your little toe into the Little Pondale series, you’ll already know just how special these books are. If you haven’t, well, now is the time to start!!
‘A Wedding on Lily Pond Lane’ has got to be my most favourite book of the series. I mean, the fairytale vibe of the storyline and the magicalesque way the author brought the book together, just blew my mind. I actually could not stop smiling. Bree’s accident prone personality had me in hysterics because she was just so real. She didn’t pretend to be something she wasn’t. I guess she reminded me a little of Mia because of it.
As bad as this sounds considering I have been to my own mothers wedding, Mia and Jet’s wedding is definitely the best wedding I have ever been to. Everything about their day just screamed their personality. It was them to a T and it highlighted the power of their relationship, beautifully. I loved it.
I would LOVE to sit here and talk about Bree’s situation but because of spoilers, I can’t! Ahhhhhh!!!!! Let’s just say both love AND magic is in the air for that particular character. I actually felt quite emotional when something came to light and I have no idea why. Maybe it was because I believed in the beauty of the situation. Or maybe it was because I could see that the author believed in her characters. I don’t know. I just nearly blubbered, that’s all I am certain of!!
I have everything crossed that this isn’t the end of the series. I would be absolutely devastated if I couldn’t go and visit Mia and the gang every few months, and I totally think that there is another book just calling out for Bree’s involvement once again.
‘A Wedding on Lily Pond Lane’ is like Kiki Dee to Elton John, like Minnie Mouse to Mickey Mouse, like Chandler Bing to Joey Tribianni, like cookies to milk. It puts the word ‘perfect’ into the word ‘perfection’ – can you tell I loved it? I really did, it was such a beautiful, heart-warming novel that made me feel as though I was coming home.
