Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Preparing a perfect wedding for her second marriage was oh so important for somehow Zannah believed it would safeguard the marriage itself … it too would be perfect. Running alongside the meticulous arrangements is the story of her motherâs love-life, her daughterâs wellbeing and her first husbandâs demands, all very involved. Adele is a lovely writer, this is not her best book, but I enjoyed it, so anticipate better when you read her others.

Similar this month: None but try Alison Jameson.
Comparison: Madeleine Wickham, Marcia Willett, Amanda Brookfield.

If you like Adele Geras you might also like to read books by Rosamunde Pilcher, Elizabeth Jane Howard and Maeve Binchy.

Synopsis

Made in Heaven by Adele Geras

Suzannah (known as Zannah) and Adrian are planning to marry in May, the loveliest time of year. Zannah has always wanted a beautiful, traditional wedding and feels she missed out the first time round when she married Cal, father of her daughter Isis.

Now two families are to meet for the first time. Will the slightly bohemian Gratrixes from Cheshire and the wealthy Ashtons from the Home Counties like each other? The meeting will take place on neutral territory, at a lunch party in the home of Zannah's Great-aunt Charlotte in London - but no one anticipates the reaction when Zannah's mother and Adrian's stepfather first meet - and a series of events is set in motion with consequences no one expected...

As the story unfolds, full of drama, conflict, revelations, reconciliations and romance, the two families plus several outsiders move forward towards the inevitable Big Day. Not everyone will get what they want. Not all marriages are made in heaven...
