Review of My Big Fat Christmas Wedding by Samantha Tonge - Five *


Things don’t always run smoothly in the game of love…
Former hot shot city girl Pippa Pattinson loves her new life of rustic simplicity, running a quaint teashop on a sleepy Greek island with her hot fiancĂ©, Niko. But it’s been a quick change to slow living – and you can’t blame a girl for wondering, ‘how did I get here?’

As her Christmas wedding approaches, a trip back to snowy England for her ex’s engagement party makes her wonder if those are wedding bells she’s hearing in her mind, or warning bells. She longs for the excitement of her old London life – the glamour, the regular pedicures. Can she really give that all up to be…a fishwife?

There’s nothing for it but to throw herself into bringing a little Christmas magic to the struggling village in the form of a Christmas fair. Somewhere in amidst the sparkly bauble cakes and stollen scones, she’s hoping she’ll come to the right decision about where she belongs…fingers crossed in time for the wedding…

Perfect for fans of Lindsey Kelk and Debbie Johnson, you won’t want to miss the Christmas Wedding of the year!


I couldn't wait to start this book! I loved the thought of a Christmas book about Pippa and Niko and their friends and relatives on Kos.

The way Sam introduced the refugees into the story and interwove them with the financial problems Greece is facing was really well done. 

I held my breath for most of the book - the tension around Niko, Pippa, Henrik, Olivia and Cleo was unforgiving and I couldn't see how a HEA was ever going to be possible! 

Needless to say, Sam sorted it all out in a lovely way and all was well. Thank you Sam. I do feel that Olivia and/or Henrik deserve their own book(s)!
