Book Review - "The Winter Wedding" by Abby Clements.

I received a copy of this title, from the publisher, in return for an honest review...

Hazel's twin sister, Lila, is getting married and asks Lila to be her wedding planner.  Hazel was always the tomboy while her sister was into sparkles and ballet, but Hazel has a talent for picking just the right venue, food and extras.  Lila's wedding is perfect and Hazel finds herself in demand.  With a new flatmate and new career option, all is well in Hazel's world.  There is one thing missing though.  Her best friend, Sam.  They grew up together and were like two peas in a pod, until last Christmas, when Hazel tried to kiss him.  Since then, contact has been lost and she misses his presence.  Watching all her clients, loved-up and ready to embark on their married lives, she feels a bit lonely.  Is is case of always the wedding planner, never the bride?  

Abby Clements has written a novel full of festiveness.  Hazel is a sweetheart, who would do anything for anyone and makes the perfect wedding planner.  Calm, concise and enthusiastic, without being brash or bossy.  Her love of food wafts of the pages and similarly, the Christmas season is brought to life as the book approaches its end.  The couples planning their wedding couldn't be more different yet Hazel deals with them all in a general way.  There's no need for drama or meltdowns when Hazel is around.  She misses her twin sister when she moves out to get married but new flatmate, Amber, more than makes up it.  She is a whiz in the kitchen and is always there to brighten up Hazel's day.  The only thing is, she has started dating Sam...

This is a wonderful, easy read.  You can tell the author adores all things Christmassy and all the reader needs to do is sit back, relax and picture the cakes, the dresses and the atmosphere.  No invitation required.  An ideal read for over the holidays.

The Winter Wedding is published by Simon and Schuster and is available in paperback and ebook format. You can order your copy, with Free Worldwide Postage, here or via amazon link below:
