Book Review: Wedding Season by Katie Fforde

katieffordeweddingseasonREVIEW BY DOT

I discovered Katie Fforde's books only last year and I have enjoyed all that I have read so far. With my own wedding fast approaching, I thought I would give Wedding Season a go.

Sarah Stratford is a wedding planner with a secret, she doesn't believe in love, her skills are tested to the limit when she has to organise the celebrity wedding of the year plus her little sister's tiny budget wedding, all on the same day. Luckily she is able to enlist the help of two new friends; Elsa is a dress designer who prefers to stay out of the limelight and Bron is a hairdresser, among many things, who is embarking on a new and exciting life. So from sourcing the perfect venue, making a fairytale dress and constructing an impossible wedding cake, these three definitely have their hands full.

As with all of Katie Fforde's books, there is always time for a little bit of romance! The suave and extremely handsome Hugo has his work cut out persuading Sarah to take some of her barriers down; Elsa drops her wall-flower status to go on a date with Laurence and Bron is getting extremely frustrated with her neighbour, James who does not seem to realise that she exists! With two weddings to organise and an extremely tight schedule, the reader is left wondering if these three lovely characters will ever find true love?

I really enjoyed Wedding Season, Katie Fforde always delivers a good story with believable characters and the perfect sprinkling of romance. The book is very funny in parts but also captures all the stress and anxiety involved in organising a wedding. I think it is a perfect summer read, especially for anyone getting married or going to a wedding this year!

Rating: 5/5
