Shortlisted for the RNA Love Story of the Year Award 2010.
A multi-voiced novel with each chapter written from the point of view of the various main characters as the months before a wedding are fraught with personal problems. It’s a second marriage so there are grown-up children in the mix – one with a big surprise – which I found a delight! There is also a female vicar with some very serious problems. All in all it is a fascinating analysis of human nature under strain. Well paced, well structured and most enjoyable. Highly recommended. To view Sophie's other books click here.

It isn`t your normal wedding. Geoff and Monique are an unlikely - not to say mature - couple. Geoff`s ex-wife is falling in love with the wrong man just in time for the ceremony, or maybe it`s just his house? Meanwhile, their daughter`s marriage is falling apart. The vicar is coping with a tragic accident and isn`t too sure she has any faith to spare. And now they`ve hired Janie to plan the ceremony. Janie has just started For Weddings and a Funeral and her events are always memorable . . . though not always in a good way.
This wedding party seems fated to be a disaster. But fate has some other ideas.
