The snow is falling around Brides by the Sea, Cornwall’s cutest little wedding shop, and wedding dress designer Seraphina East is in her cosy studio designing exquisite dresses to make even the most demanding bride’s dreams come true.
Unless the bride is her big sister Alice of course. Saying that the two sisters don’t always see eye to eye is an understatement. Alice hasn’t even asked Sera to design her wedding dress. But when an absent groom and ill-fitting dress threaten to ruin Alice’s happiness let alone her big day, Sera’s determined to give her sister the winter wedding of her dreams – even if that means keeping not one but two irresistibly gorgeous best men under control…
Is Sera going to end up being the maid of dishonour…Or will repairing her frozen relationship with Alice be the icing on the wedding cake?
There’s sequins, snowflakes, and plenty of romance in this gorgeous love story. The perfect romance to curl up by the fire with this Christmas! Perfect for fans of Carole Matthews and Milly Johnson.
Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop: Sequins and Snowflakes is the second novel in The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea series. If like me you haven’t read the first in the series, then do not fret, as this book easily reads as a stand alone and I didn’t feel at all like I was missing out on anything.
The story is told over days to the run up to Christmas and to Alice’s wedding. Christmas, even though a magical time of the year, is quite a stressful time of the year. To also be getting married at that time of year, well, I think I was as stressed out as poor Alice was just thinking about it.
For Sera, I think she has been dreading the whole wedding. Obviously she loves her sister, but she isn’t the easiest of people to get along with. For Sera, I think it’s very much, the sooner it’s over with the better.
Through Sera’s relationship with Alice as well as Johnny, it kind of makes you think how well you truly know somebody. With just that little bit more effort it goes to show how much better you would understand them and actually love them that little bit more for it.
There is quite a lot of mention of cakes and food in the story, which will certainly get your mouth watering, as well as wanting to nibble on some delicious treats. The author has very kindly at the back of the book included the recipes for cocktails and some of the delicious cakes, etc that are mentioned and I for one will certainly be trying them out.
Sequins and Snowflakes is very much a story of relationships and romance. It’s a fun and light hearted read that whilst maybe stressful, made me want to get married all over again.
My thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
