Review of Four Weddings and a White Christmas by Jenny Oliver - Four *


Welcome back to Cherry Pie Island…the most delicious place to spend Christmas!
Hannah’s holidays are normally spent nibbling chocolate coins with her daughter and arguing with her sister about whether they’re too old for stockings on Christmas morning. But this year, she’s been offered the dressmaker’s job of a lifetime: creating a one-of-a-kind a dress for her school friend Annie’s Christmas wedding on the picture-perfect Cherry Pie Island.
Many mince pies and one hot-pink organza dress later, Hannah is set to snuggle back into her old routine…until she discovers that there are three more weddings this winter – and not a dress in sight!
Four very different themes, four demanding brides and four parties spent avoiding chef Harry Fontaine, whose cynicism is as much a wedding day guarantee as confetti and cake. Hannah has her work cut out for her! Yet, with a sprinkling of snowflakes and Christmas magic, it could be that this is the year when miracles really do happen…if Hannah will let them.
Celebrate four very special weddings with Jenny Olive in the soon-to-be Christmas classic: Four Weddings and a White Christmas. Four very good reasons to get out in the snow and fall in love!


Another visit to Cherry Pie Island!

The story takes place over 4 linked weddings. Hannah is an emerging fashion designer and the weddings are linked by her dress designs. She meets Harry, our reluctant hero, at the first wedding and then at the subsequent ones.

I found the whole story delightful! Two socially awkward people, obviously attracted to each other, but no idea how to resolve it! Being a bit like that myself, I could easily sympathise with them!

It was lovely to watch Hannah grow in confidence as she became more successful and how Harry's rigid beliefs changed as he got to know Hannah.

A really lovely book full of great characters and laughs!
