It's so hard to believe that we are so close to half way through the year! I am very close to meeting half of my reading goal. Currently hitting that snag. I hope everyone else I close to their goals!

Summary: Could you plan a wedding if you'd never been in love?

Tessa has always dreamed of her own business. And when a beautiful tumbledown house comes up for sale in the Southern town of Bellegrove, she knows it has perfect potential to be an amazing one-stop wedding shop.

Teaming up with three talented friends, they’re ready for big things. They’ve even found their first client – a sweet old lady called Bianca, who’s desperate to give her grandson a spectacular wedding. (Even though he’s equally determined to keep it simple and romantic.)

But as the big day approaches, things start to go wrong. Handsome handyman Blake Ellinghambreaks the news that the building needs re-wiring and the bill for renovations is longer than a royal wedding train. And then one of her friends suddenly quits their fledgling business

Can Tessa pull off the dream wedding? Can Blake be convinced to help? And if the electrics are broken, why are so many sparks flying between him and Tessa?


This book is adorable. I love the way it starts with her as a child with her big dreams. Then it flashes to current day. Now I don't know how much I have to say how much I normally hate that sort of thing but when it works it really works. The same with when it jumps from character POV's. This one could have given a little better heads up like the name at the top of the chapter or some other indication because it was a little hard to know. Yes, they all had their strengths but I like that little indication that I need to be in a slightly different mindset for a different character. I loved watching them intermingle though. Watching/reading someone's dreams come is absolutely beautiful. Fictional or not it is fantastic. Then when the architect comes in I can almost feel his excitement in getting to restore an old building. It reminds me of an old friend of mine who builds and restores homes. Just the pure excitement and seeing their home just piled full of blue prints. The way the character talked about the restoration was fantastic. You could really feel how much they wanted that. I am so in love with how in love with their dreams these characters are. It is just beautiful and very uplifting. I also love how they were able to bring it all together even though at first Bianca fought them almost all the way but it ended so well. (no that is not a spoiler) This author has a way to make you really feel what the characters are feeling, as a reader that is absolutely something you want out of your books. That is something that will keep me coming back to this author. I can't wait to read more by her.
