LoveReading View on The Wedding Diary

From the author of a successful historical romance trilogy, this is a charming, funny and delightful read about silver linings and second chances.


A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher...

'The Wedding Diary is a departure from Margaret James’ gritty trilogy about a family living and fighting through two world wars.  Margaret makes the transition to a contemporary novel flawlessly. Her heroine Cat works for an architectural salvage firm in Walthamstow. Her friends seem shallow and unsupportive and she's fallen for a rather manipulative man. The book is funny in parts and never shies away from how delicate love and relationships can be. The characters are recognisable as people you know or conversations you overhear on the tube and Cat's nemesis, the formidable public relations powerhouse Fanny Gregory (the fairy godmother), is absolutely hilarious. When Cat finds someone with whom the love and lust is reciprocal, it's hardly plain sailing and their happiness must be hard won against tough old enemies like fear, doubt, suspicion and Fanny Gregory.'

Choc Lit, the publisher of this novel, was the 2012 Publisher of the Year as voted for by the Festival of Romance.

The Wedding Diary Synopsis

Where's a Fairy Godmother when you need one? If you won a fairy-tale wedding in a luxury hotel, you'd be delighted - right? But what if you didn't have anyone to marry? Cat Aston did have a fiance, but now it looks like her Prince Charming has done a runner. Adam Lawley was left devastated when his girlfriend turned down his heartfelt proposal. He's made a vow never to fall in love again. So - when Cat and Adam meet, they shouldn't even consider falling in love. After all, they're both broken hearted. But for some reason they can't stop thinking about each other. Is this their second chance for happiness, or are some things just too good to be true?
