Book Review: The Wedding Diary - Margaret James

SynopsisWhere's a Fairy Godmother when you need one?

If you won a fairy-tale wedding in a luxury hotel, you d be delighted right? But what if you didn't have anyone to marry? Cat Aston did have a fiancé, but now it looks like her Prince Charming has done a runner.

Adam Lawley was left devastated when his girlfriend turned down his heartfelt proposal. He's made a vow never to fall in love again.

So when Cat and Adam meet, they shouldn't even consider falling in love. After all, they're both broken hearted. But for some reason they can't stop thinking about each other. Is this their second chance for happiness, or are some things just too good to be true?  (Taken from Goodreads)

Review - I had this book on my iPad through iBooks.  I am not sure if it was one of the iTunes 12 Days of Christmas presents.  Anyway, by whatever means I received this book, it was a good, light, fun read.

Chicklit can be hit and miss but this one had all the right ingredients and hit all the right buttons for me.  It is seasonal a good spring/summer read.  The story begins with Cat sat on her sofa eating chocolate on Easter Saturday and I started to read this book the week following Easter.  I couldn't have timed it better.  Good to dip into whenever convenient without having to worry about remembering complex plots.  I liked the characters, Cat and Adam are both decent, good hearted and likeable people.  Their exes are bad eggs naturally, and the best friends fit the usual criteria, funny, supportive, humourous and larger than life.  When these two meet as their friendship develops it seems to be fraught with setbacks.  Naturally wary, it takes both Cat and some special people to help them out.

It you are looking for something to keep you occupied on the plane, train, holiday or just to relax with and put your feet up at the end of the day, then I can recommend this book.  4*
