Review ~ The Big Little Wedding in Carlton Square by Lilly Bartlett

Harper Impulse
2017


What's it all about...

When Emma’s boyfriend Daniel pops the question with a ring the size of a small country, she suddenly realises just how different they are. She’s the Eastenders to his Made in Chelsea. She wants a low-key wedding with close friends and family in Uncle Colin’s pub, while Daniel’s mother is expecting a society do that their high-brow guests won’t forget!

How on earth can Emma put together a celebration fit for Lords and Ladies on a shoestring budget? Not to mention the fact her cross-dressing Uncle Barbara wants to be a bridesmaid, her best mate Kelly can’t stand Daniel’s best friend Cressida, and her dad is too proud to accept any help from Daniel’s family towards the costs.

There’s three months to go until the big day. Will Emma’s happy-ever-after end in disaster?


What did I think about it...

What I like about this author's writing is her ability to entertain her readers and right from the start in The Big Little Wedding in Carlton Square we are entertained by a cast of characters who melt right into your heart.

As Emma and Daniel are soon to discover, planning their wedding and trying to keep both sides of their, very different, families singing from the same hymn sheet is going to be tricky. And as anyone who has planned a wedding knows, the route to a perfect wedding day is nearly always littered with unexpected obstacles.

There is a lovely light touch to this romantic comedy which has all the right ingredients for a fun filled, read. With her trademark warmth and wit, the author gets right into the heart of the story, from her colourful array of characters, through to the insightful way she weaves into the story, the notion, that it really isn't about the size of the wedding it's all about the love in your heart.

A lovely summer read.


Best Read With...a glass of gently sparkling champagne and a slice of wedding cake...
