About this book…
When the owner of Brides by the Sea, Cornwall’s cutest little wedding shop, offers Lily a job as their new wedding stylist, her first thought is – can she possibly pull it off?
Before she’s even sourced a fairy light or tasted a cupcake, Kip Penryn hires her services – but he’s opened an exclusive wedding venue in direct competition to her friend Poppy!
Lily feels like a traitor working for Kip, only everyone knows Penryn men are gorgeous but unreliable. All she has to do is sit back and watch him mess it up…doesn’t she?
Love is in the Cornish sea breeze this summer as the girls tackle their busiest wedding season yet. There’s plenty of bunting, bubbly and baking – but who is going to catch the bouquet?
Having read and enjoyed the previous two books in the Little Wedding Shop series, I was delighted to meet up with the girls again. Now, I know the summer wedding season is busy but I could tell from the outset that our lovely ladies were going to be rushed off their feet!
It’s fabulous to see that everyone is heading for their own happy ever afters and love is certainly in the sea air again as we head once more to the Little Wedding Shop by the sea. Although part of a series, this book can totally be read as a standalone as it’s Lily’s turn to take centre stage, although the other girls are there to add their support and lots of sugar!
What I really adore about these books is the girls themselves. I love the way they interact with each other, always working together even when there are major hiccups either within the business or their relationships. Lily is now employed as a wedding stylist but her loyalties are about to be tested when she’s employed by the opposition and meets Kip Penryn. To be honest I didn’t think Kit was good enough for our lovely Lily but gradually, he wore me down and every time he called her Water Lily my heart melted a little more.
I always find I put on a few pounds whilst ready Jane’s books. And this time was no different! Considering I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth, I was craving cupcakes and all sort of gooey desserts after Poppy started tempting me with truffles right from the very first chapter! She’s now running Daisy Hill Farm as a wedding venue with the love of her life Rafe but thankfully she’s still baking up a calorific storm!
Jane Linfoot writes with a confidence in her characters that shows how much she loves these girls! She brings them to live with a vibrancy and passion that means you can’t help but root for them in their search for love, although most of the time Jane allows it to creep up on them unexpectedly! This is a fun and frothy romance that was as sweet as the frosting on those cupcakes-perfect for an incurable romantic like me!

About the author by the author…
I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines and a bit of an edge. Writing romance is cool, because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. I live in a mountain kingdom in Derbyshire, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos. Happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things French. When I’m not on Facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be walking, or gardening. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.
