What they say: It should be the perfect wedding day . . . But has Gwen’s groom got cold feet and will he make it through the snow in time?
A lovely Christmas romance short read that you won’t want to put down.
Christmas is coming to the little Welsh town of Tonnadulais, and the much-loved characters from ‘The Green Hills of Home.’ But this year it’s somewhat overshadowed by a rather special wedding taking place on Christmas Eve.
Local girl Gwen Jones is finally marrying her man, London publisher John Thatcher, and she couldn’t be happier. Though as her friends and beloved mother help her prepare for the big day, Gwen can’t suppress the little nagging doubt that John shouldn’t still be stuck working in London the day before their wedding. Has the city boy changed his mind about marrying his country girl?
When a huge snow storm hits, it seems John might not to be able to make it back to her, whether he wants to or not.
Join Gwen, John, and Oscar the dog, in this Christmassy treat guaranteed to get you in the festive spirit!
The Review: You’ll probably remember that I quickly became a fan of Emma Bennet on reading I Need A Hero. I have recently devoured His Secret Daughter (review to come) and so when I saw this FREE on Amazon I was tres excited! I’m afraid one book I haven’t got to is The Green Hills of Home, which comes before this but it’s a given that I’ll be heading there very soon (it worked fine as a standalone but once you read this you’ll be wanting to head back to it so maybe get that first!).
From the start I was taken by the country house in Tonnadulais, with Gwen Jones, her mother Edith and her best friend, Sarah, excitedly planning the wedding of Gwen and John, who had been engaged for more than a year. The flurry of activity, the house and its surroundings were warm and homely, and added to the sense of Christmas. We soon met John and realised that his priorities were a little different as he rushed to get work done that didn’t seem to be connected to the wedding.
I was quickly sucked in to Gwen’s insistences that the wedding would NOT be called off, despite building snow, and adored the off the wall contingencies put in place to replace the more traditional wedding fare. The race to the altar was simultaneously funny and heart-warming and the people of Tonnadulais stole my heart as they rallied around their girl, Gwen. In short, loved all the characters, inhaled the drama that was so light and yet pulled me along with it, craved the beauty and festiveness and all in between. Free on Amazon and one of my top reads this Christmas. Enough said. Go get!
