Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Even though you’ve done it all before, second weddings can be highly complicated. Light, frothy, feel-good stuff with enough hurdles to keep you wondering how it will all turn out. Delicious fun.

Comparison: Cathy Kelly, Sheila O’Flanagan, Patricia Scanlan.
Similar this month: Erica James, Josie Lloyd and Emlyn Rees.

Synopsis

The Wedding Day by Catherine Alliott

Annie O’Harran is the wrong side of thirty. A harassed single mother, she’s escaped her faithless first husband and, against all expectations, met her hero. Now, she has a blissful summer ahead to plan their wedding. First, however, she must escape constant interruptions to meet the urgent deadline on her novel. But no sooner has she arrived at a fabulous writer's retreat in Cornwall than the doorbell starts ringing... Just as long as none of the visitors affects her big day at the end of the summer...

About the Author

Catherine Alliott

Catherine Alliott was our Guest Editor in August 2013 - click here - to see the books that inspired her writing.

Catherine Alliott started her first novel under the desk when she worked as an advertising copywriter. She was duly fired. With time on her hands she persevered with the novels, which happily flourished. In the early days she produced a baby with each book, but after three she stuck to writing as it was less painful. She writes with the nearest pen in exercise books, either in the garden or on a sofa. Home is a rural spot in Hertfordshire which she shares with her family and a menagerie of horses, cows, chickens and dogs, which at the last count totalled 34 beating hearts, including her husband.

Fellow novelist SOPHIE KING on CATHERINE ALLIOTT

I first met Catherine because my youngest son was at school with her son. Catherine writes her novels in the first person which immediately makes you feel you know the heroine. I love all her books, including the latest The Secret Life of Evie Hamilton : I usually spot other people's twists but I didn't get this one until it jumped up and hit me off the page.

Q. If you couldn't be a writer, what would you like to be?

Q. When you need to escape from your everyday routine, what do you do?
A. Light the fire, watch daytime TV and eat chocolate.

Q. Who is your style icon?
A. Wasn't aware I had one but very much admire Kristen Scott Thomas's style. So cool.

Q. What is your favourite food?
A. In - macaroni cheese. Out - Dover sole.

Q. What's your idea of hell?

A. Two weeks ago, at Badminton Horse Trials, watching a great friend's daughter jump round the cross country course. Amazing. I've known her since she was seven.

Q. What is so your idea of perfect happiness?
A. So corny. All my children plus boyfriends, girlfriends, any other friends and of course my husband, eating around the same table. Or actually, a table somewhere hot, on holiday, abroad, i.e. without me having to cook. Oh - and grandparents too.

Q. What is the trait you most deplore in others?
A. Deplore. Golly. Quite strong. Well I'm not mad about bad manners which come in many guises.
