Two years ago Rebecca Miles won the lottery and ended her marriage to her overbearing and unpleasant husband Daniel. She had every intention of putting the past behind her and starting again, but it turned out to be so much more difficult than she had imagined. Then Daniel announces he is getting married again and as Rebecca broods over how he has found it so easy to move on her daughter phones with good news – she’s getting married too! Determined not to be left behind Rebecca throws caution to the wind and finally meets someone who can give her the new start she so desperately wants. Now her ex-husband is back in her life, the future Mrs Miles wants to be her best friend, she has her daughter’s wedding to plan and a ramshackle old wedding venue to renovate to its former perfection in just a few months, if only she can find a builder who will take on the job. There are challenges, surprises, love and heartbreak ahead but at the end of a long, hot summer, will there be any weddings?
I have read the previous book and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I was looking forward to dive into this one and meet up with Beth and her family and friends.
I have a soft spot for stories or tv shows about weddings. I am a huge fan of ‘Say yes to the dress’ and it goes without a doubt that this book was right up my alley.
The author regaled me with her fluent writing style, her witty conversations and lots of weddingy things.
It’s wonderful to see how Beth has grown even more into a strong independent woman and altough sometimes her mouth does not say what her minds tells her to, she has come a long way.
Secretly I am hoping the author will treat us to a sequel. Maybe I am hoping in vain, but hey a girl can only try, can’t she?
You can certainly add an enthusiast to your list. 5 stars.
Thank you, Julie Butterfield and RachelsRandomResources.
About the author
Julie Butterfield belongs to the rather large group of ‘always wanted to write’ authors who finally found the time to sit down and put pen to paper – or rather fingers to keyboard and wrote Did I Mention I Won the Lottery? It should be pointed out this is a complete work of fiction and she did not in fact receive millions in her bank account and forget to mention it her husband – even though he still asks her every day if she has anything to tell him! Her second book was Google Your Husband Back and the latest addition is Did I Mention I Was Getting Married? – which revisits Rebecca a few years after the lottery win which changed her life.
