Wedding Vows and Cornish Ribbons

Event planner Julianne Rose is on the verge of making her dreams of ‘rescuing’ weddings in need of help a reality. She and business partner Kitty have finally finished transforming the dilapidated barn into a chic event space, and they even have a new client eager to use it—a quirky, charming space organization guru named Deirdre who seems capable of organizing everything but her own special day. As if that wasn’t enough, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity soon presents itself through the who’s who of their sleepy little Cornish village: the chance to step into the event planning void for a posh bride in desperate need of an emergency salvage for her wedding plans. A wedding that could establish Julianne and Kitty as two of Cornwall’s best event planners if all goes well.

But an event that big doesn’t come without a catch. To persuade the posh clients to commit to them, Julianne and Kitty must first impress them with the ceremony for their current bride-to-be—a task that seemed easy, but proves complicated when stories emerge involving a history of broken engagements, cold feet, and commitment phobia on the part of Deirdre, who soon begins to exhibit possible symptoms of nervousness regarding her big day. Faced with a real case of runaway bride—and with their future reputation at stake— they must attempt to the impossible task of holding together a wedding fraying at its seams, and Julianne finds herself seemingly facing a choice between what’s best for Save the Date’s survival and what’s best for her client’s happiness, regardless of the cost.

Are Julianne’s worst fears about to be realized, with Deirdre gearing up for yet another run from the church altar? Can she persuade the posh but sympathetic bride Alexi to take a risk on Save the Date regardless of it? And will Julianne and the handsome-but-equally-busy Matt find time to smolder anything in their marriage besides leftover chicken pie? Readers will learn these answers and more in the funny and heartfelt sequel to the first full-length titular novel Return to Cornwall .

My Thoughts

Whimsy, weddings and worries.Julianne and Kitty are excited to finally get there wedding/event planning business off the ground. They have their gorgeous barn as a venue. They have their caterer, they have their florist, they have their bride… maybe? Everything is contingent on pulling off the perfect wedding, but it looks as though the bride has a reputation of running. Julianne is at a loss as what to do. She wants to save the date, but she doesn’t want to give the bride the wrong advice.

This was lots of fun. I always love reading books about wedding planning which is kind of funny because when I got married I did it at the courthouse. I guess with reading about it you get all the fun and none of the stress. It was lovely revisiting the characters from Laura Briggs’ previous series. However, you don’t need to read the previous books to enjoy this one Laura does a good job of catching you up with the characters. Loved all the descriptions of the food, the flowers, the dress… I liked the little hitch in the plans and was curious to find out what was keeping this bride from following through. So will Julianne be able to pull this all off? Will the bride say yes to the dress? I do? Will they all live happily ever after?
